Anti-Inflammatory Foods

healthy food

When we look at the diseases that plague our society – arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) – we see that long term lifestyle changes are needed. What might not be as obvious is the common denominator tied to all of these and more: Inflammation is at the root of most diseases.


By addressing the inflammation with anti-inflammatory foods, not only can the symptoms of these diseases be alleviated, but we may even see them cured.


To move toward an anti-inflammatory diet and anti-inflammatory foods, we primarily move away from the abundance of overly processed, unbalanced diets of the West and toward the ancient eating patterns of the Mediterranean. A Mediterranean diet comprises of plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, little to no red meat, certainly no chemicals or meat additives, and an abundance of Omega-3 foods.
