Did you know you can influence inflammation through your lifestyle?
With inflammation contributing to most chronic illness AND many vague and bizarre symptoms…
Following an anti-inflammatory lifestyle is basic preventive medicine.
Here are some ideas:
🥑 Healthy fats (like nuts, seeds, olive oil, and avocados) reduce inflammation while hydrogenated oils promote it.
🫐 Fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants and polyphenols that protect against inflammation whereas refined sugar does the opposite.
🏋 Exercise lowers inflammatory molecules even in the absence of weight loss.
💤 Sleeping at least 7-8 hours a night produces growth hormones and testosterone to modulate inflammation.
☯️ Yoga or meditation help relieve stress and make the body better able to regulate the inflammatory response.
Do you feel like you have these things dialed in?
Then stay tuned for our next post where I’ll share my favorite supplements to support a healthy inflammatory response.
