Anti-Inflammatory Diet and Lifestyle

Surprisingly, inflammation is one of the ways the body protects itself. Inflammation fight off infection, encourages healing, and signals to us that there is something wrong in our body. But too much or persistent inflammation can be harmful and can contribute to chronic pain.  Inflammation is now being linked to heart disease, cancer and obesity.  Following an anti-inflammatory diet can help you live longer, feel more energetic and reduce pain.  Eat a colorful diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables! They supply antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients. You can also live an anti-inflammatory lifestyle outside of your diet. Staying active and exercising has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body. Be sure to get enough quality sleep and manage your stress levels as these keep your mind and body healthy and also reduce inflammation
