If our immune system gets out of control, we have what is called inappropriate, chronic inflammation. Our immune system in this case starts PRODUCING disease. We all have this type of inflammation, and its causes are many, including: diet, stress, genetics and environmental toxins. Dr. Andrew Weil, MD.
More of a Mediterranean diet is recommended. This comprises of plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, little to no red meat, certainly no chemicals or meat additives, and an abundance of omega-3 foods. Fresh produce, preferably organic, have compounds that are beneficial: Antioxidants, Minerals, and Essential fatty acids.
The Top 15 Anti-Inflammatory Foods Are:
Green Leafy Vegetables, Bok Choy, Celery, Beets, Broccoli, Blueberries, Pineapple, Salmon, Bone Broth, Walnuts, Coconut Oil, Chia Seeds, Flaxseeds, Turmeric, Ginger.
To help prevent inflammatory diseases, such as, heart disease, arthritis, some cancers, and Alzheimers disease, incorporate these foods into your daily eating plan, and avoid any processed foods, which are high in sugar, salt, and omega 6. While we need some Omega 6 in our diet, the proportion of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is inflammatory.
