Four Habits That Fight Inflammation

Inflammation is a common thing that happens to everyone. It is the immune system’s response to infection or injury. However, there is another type of inflammation that also happens quite frequently in the body. While it is common, it is still unhealthy and dangerous for the body. This inflammation sets in when your immune system is not working properly, and prolonged inflammation can lead to a host of health issues, from diabetes, chronic pain, and heart disease to neurological disorders.

It is best not to let this inflammation start in the first place with the right type of eating. Here are some eating habits that can fight inflammation.

Increase Your Intake of Fruits and Vegetables

Some of the top inflammation fighting foods are found in the produce department. Fruits and vegetables are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They help reduce inflammation and boost your overall health. Dark leafy greens, such as spinach and kale, are especially great for packing an anti-inflammatory punch to any meal.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Are a Must

Another powerful inflammation fighter is a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids. Many people will not get enough of omega-3 fatty acids in their diets because typically these foods are higher in fat. However, this fat is healthy and essential for your health. Focus on the health benefits rather than the calories. Enjoy the healthy fats in salmon, walnuts, seeds, olive oil, coconut oil, and avocados. If you still have a hard time getting in enough omega-3 fatty acids, try a natural fish supplement pill.

Cut Back on Added Sugar

Sugar is one food that causes inflammation and can mess with your hormones and your body’s immune response. Artificial sweeteners are not any better, since your body does not recognize the chemicals in it. If you still need sugar in your diet every once in a while, stick with a natural sugar, such as coconut sugar or maple syrup, which are gentler on your blood sugar levels.

Eat More Fermented Products

Healthy, fermented foods are loaded with good bacteria and can help aid in digestion and fight inflammation in the body. The best fermented foods to eat are kimchi, yogurt, apple cider vinegar, and sauerkraut.

It is dangerous to have chronic or prolonged inflammation, since it can lead to so many diseases. Along with a healthy diet, add regular chiropractic care to your health routine. Regular wellness adjustments can reduce inflammation and boost your immune system naturally.
