Chronic inflammation is the cause of many serious illnesses, ranging from heart disease to different kinds of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. It can serve as the body’s way of healing itself, but when it starts occurring for no reason and persists when it doesn’t need to, it can cause great damage and illness to the body.
Things like stress, lack of exercise, and exposure to toxins can easily lead to chronic inflammation. It’s even as simple as genetic predisposition. One thing to take into consideration to fight chronic inflammation is dietary habits. Specific foods can influence the inflammatory process and play a big role in whether it is contained or not.
Experts have reported on what is known as The Anti-Inflammatory Diet. It’s not a diet for the intention of losing weight like most diets are, but rather a diet that is for controlling the inflammation process in your body.
These foods are based on scientific knowledge and are proven to help aid and maintain optimum health. In addition, this diet will also help with providing energy, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, dietary fiber, and more.
Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D., has constructed some diet tips for those who are interested in taking on this new lifestyle change.
