Inflammation Part 2

Make sure to read Part 1, the causes of chronic inflammation. WHAT ABOUT DIET? How does diet impact chronic inflammation? What you eat can play both a positive and negative role in managing chronic inflammation. There are foods that can aggravate chronic inflammation (pro-inflammatory foods) and those that are anti-inflammatory.

Inflammation Part 1

INFLAMMATION occurs when the body is harmed in any way – from infections / injury / toxins – and is an immune response that the body initiates against local tissue damage. Inflammation is a necessary response from our immune system against a foreign body (or antigen). Poor diet and stress overwhelm the immune system , leading to excessive inflammation.
