Do you struggle with fatigue or insomnia, body pain, anxiety or depression, weight management, gastrointestinal issues (constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, etc.), or experience frequent infections? These symptoms may be the result of chronic inflammation. Inflammation is your body’s method of attacking things that harm it like, infections, injuries, and toxins, in order to heal itself. Chronic inflammation occurs when this response remains, leaving your body in a continuous state of stress. Things that contribute to inflammation include, infection, injury, auto-immune disorders, long-term exposure to irritants (chemicals, pollutants, etc.), smoking, obesity, alcohol, chronic stress, inadequate sleep, and a diet high in processed & refined foods.
“The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks chronic diseases as the greatest threat to human health. The prevalence of diseases associated with chronic inflammation is anticipated to increase persistently for the next 30 years in the United States” (Pahwa, Goyal, Jialal, 2022).
If you experience any of the above symptoms, making dietary changes along with other lifestyle changes can drastically improve or even resolve some of your symptoms! An anti-inflammatory diet also known as the Mediterranean diet is a great choice for most people. An anti-inflammatory diet works to reduce the inflammation in our body to optimize health, improve recovery, increase energy, improve mood, AND decrease risk for developing chronic illnesses.
