Reducing Inflammation with Diet
Are you not feeling well and not sure why? I have had tremendous success with the "Elimination Diet" to reduce inflammation. This gives you a kick start in changing habits and reduces the risk of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. It also improves moods, digestion, energy, joint pain and overall quality of life.
The Elimination Diet removes certain foods from your diet for four weeks that have proven to be hyper allergenic. After your symptoms improve, you'll carefully add foods back into your diet one at a time to see which foods may be triggering symptoms.
When your body is less inflamed, recover from a surgery or injury is much faster and less painful. (I can testify to this.)
Some signs of Inflammation
You're tired all the time- too little or too much sleep can create inflammation
You have aches and pains- Experiencing pain regularly that is not attributable to an injury.
You're experiencing digestive issues- Ongoing symptoms like diarrhea or gassiness could be signs of chronic inflammation, especially in the gastrointestinal tract.
Your nose is stuffy- The most common way the body lets you know something is wrong is through inflamed nasal cavities.
You're struggling with brain fog- Inflammation can also affect you mentally. You may find you forget more frequently than usual or have trouble focusing.
You have heartburn- In addition to digestive issues, heartburn is another symptom of too much inflammation in the body. This is known as gastric reflux.
You keep getting headaches-No one knows the exact causes of migraines and ongoing headaches but they could be affected by neurogenic inflammation which is a type of inflammation in the brain.
