Inflammation: An Ally or Enemy?
I learned about how inflammation takes over your body and causes the disease process to start. Many people don’t know this, but it’s true! To begin healing your body, you must deal with and treat inflammation first.
Inflammation is a very natural process of your body reacting to anything from an infection to toxins, as well as a metabolic insult during overeating. It’s how your body reacts to the immune system by causing inflammation. Inflammation helps fight off those things or remove them to make you immune.
When your immune system wins, then the inflammation goes away. When inflammation doesn’t go away, you’re in danger of chronic inflammation. The cycle is you get an insult triggering an inflammatory response and causing your body’s immune system to fight it.
Then, the inflammation goes down. Sometimes your body is unable to fight the inflammation. It starts to linger when your immune system is weak. It’ll keep lingering, and the inflammation will rise to a higher level. It leads to chronic inflammation, which promotes diseases. How do you reduce inflammation in your body?
Eat foods that help reduce inflammation. Non-inflammatory foods are a plant-based diet with many greens and colored fruits that are not too sugary. Avoid dairy, soy, and gluten because these foods cause inflammation.
There is a simple blood test where you can find out which foods you’re sensitive to. Sometimes even healthy foods can cause havoc in the gut when your gut health is at its best. Foods that lessen inflammation are whole foods like plants, colored fruits, and whole grains. Grains that are non-inflammatory include rice and Buckwheat. Nondairy milk is also recommended.
Take food supplements that help reduce inflammation. Examples include curcumin or turmeric, Omega-3, Quercetin, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B. Several vitamins and supplements can reduce inflammation and help fight infections.
There is a supplement called Monolaurin, which gets rid of viruses and kills viruses in your body. Monolaurin is a natural compound found in coconut oil. It has many health benefits, including boosting the immune system, fighting viruses and bacteria, and reducing inflammation.
Inflammation is at the root of many diseases, both chronic and acute. You must understand how inflammation works to prevent it from causing severe health problems. Thankfully, there are several steps you can take to reduce inflammation in your body.
Eating a healthy diet of non-inflammatory foods, taking supplements, and managing stress levels are all excellent ways to keep inflammation under control.
