With the fall equinox behind us and cooler weather in our midst I would like to touch on a topic many of you have come to me about lately — inflammation!
What Causes Inflammation?
Chemicals that cause inflammation can be found in a number of substances such as cigarette smoke, and foods such as sugar, trans fats, highly refined grains and gluten, booze/alcohol, milk, and additives such and MSG.
How Can I Prevent Inflammation?
GOOD foods and diets to keep inflammation away include a lot of fresh veggies, fresh fruit, nuts, extra virgin olive oil, fish, legumes, beans, and whole grains. Eating the rainbow (colorful fruits and veggies) seems to be key.
You can find more information on my site about inflammation. Some more information can be viewed here:
