Get Rid of Inflammation

When your body heats up and gets red or swollen- that is what we call inflammation. Inflammation does serve a purpose by helping the body defend itself against injury and infection, but chronic inflammation leads to weight gain and disease. With the addition of stress, inflammatory foods, and low activity- the risk of disease is even greater.


In order to fight chronic inflammation, an increase of activity is recommended along with an anti- inflammatory diet. A primary plant based diet is the foundation of an anti-inflammatory diet. Here are some foods that will help reduce inflammation in the body:

  • Green leafy veggies like spinach and kale are excellent anti inflammatory foods. Kale also has the added benefits of promoting glowing skin, healthy eyes, strong bones, and a powerful digestive system.

  • Beans and legumes combat inflammation. Bean such as chickpeas, black beans, and lentils are also loaded with fiber and protein.

  • Pumpkin seeds are not only inflammatory, but are also known to reduce arthritis pain.

  • Omega 3 helps to fight inflammation. A plant based source would include flax seed and chia seed.

  • Root vegetables like beets are carrots.
