Do you suffer from an auto immune disease or conditions created as a result of chronic inflammation? Conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma or allergies are the result of systemic inflammation in the body.
Inflammation is a natural, normal response of the body's immune system. When the body is attacked by pathogens or suffers an injury or irritation it sends substances to fight the attackers or repair the damage. Unfortunately, the body will sometimes over react and create a condition known as chronic inflammation.
Characteristics of Inflammation
- redness (rubor)
- swelling (tumor)
- pain (dolor)
- heat (calor)
That is why when you cut your finger it becomes swollen and red. It is also painful and feels warm to the touch.
Inflammatory Diseases & Conditions
Here is a partial list of inflammatory related diseases or conditions:
- heart disease
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- digestive disorders
What has led to the rise of systemic inflammation? The biggest culprit is the Standard American Diet
(SAD)! Many of the common foods we eat are pro-inflammatory.
Here is a list of some of the pro-inflammatory foods we should avoid, especially if we are battling an inflammatory condition:
- red meats
- saturated fats
- fried foods
- partially hydrogenated (trans fats)
- cooking oils that are exclusively corn, safflower, sunflower
or soy based
- soft drinks (diet drinks included)
- sugar (including fructose from fruit juice)
Sugar is considered to be the most pro-inflammatory of all foods. Foods high in sugar release insulin and free radicals in the body. The free radicals oxidize fats that turn into plaque in our arteries.
Below is a list of foods and supplements that are anti-inflammatory:
- foods high in omega-3 fatty acids
- raw nuts and seeds
- homemade soups made with poultry or meat bones
- dark green vegetables
- antioxidants in supplement form (especially vitamins C and E)
- zinc taken in supplement form
- extra virgin organic olive oil, grapeseed and avocado oils
In addition to changes in your diet, I recommend you try drinking nopalea juice for at least 90 days to see if it helps balance out your body and reduce chronic inflammation!
The juice from the nopal cactus has been shown in studies to lower inflammation in the body! Many people are receiving outstanding benefits from this new all natural health product.
