Inflammation is a sign that something is going wrong in your body. However, it can be difficult to identify the cause. It results from the body’s attempt to fight off bacteria and viruses, heal from injuries, or can result from auto-immune disorders such as arthritis. Inflammation causes many unpleasant symptoms, such as joint stiffness, fatigue, headaches, fever, and chills.

There are many ways you can fight back, including using breathing exercises to reduce inflammation and drinking beverages that reduce inflammation, such as green tea. However, if you suffer from chronic inflammation and are looking for a more comprehensive approach, the anti-inflammatory diet may be right for you.

Further Benefits of the Anti-Inflammatory Diet

The anti-inflammatory diet does much more than the name implies. Cutting down on saturated and trans fats, refined sugars, and salt can help protect your heart health and improve your gut microbiome.

The benefits of antioxidants in many of the foods included in the anti-inflammatory diet can help ward off diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, and more.

Swapping out processed foods for plates full of fresh fruits and green veggies helps ensure that your body gets all of the vitamins and minerals it needs to function at its best. This results in increased energy, improved mood, mental clarity, improved immune function, and better sleep.

Read more about the benefits of eating the rainbow by incorporating fresh fruits and veggies into every meal.

True Diets Are A Lifestyle

The word “diet” often has a negative connotation. It’s reported that most people let their diet fall by the wayside in five weeks or less. For this reason, it’s important not to view the anti-inflammatory diet as a “diet,” but instead as a change in lifestyle to promote well-being.

It’s not something that can be done short-term to see long-term results. The anti-inflammatory diet is designed to be adopted as a new, healthier way of eating to benefit your body.

We want to hear from you. Let us know if there are more eating lifestyles and diets you want to learn more about.
