Inflammation is a localized physical condition, in which parts of the body of a person become swollen, reddened, hot and often painful, as a reaction to injury or infection in particular.
We can see when something is inflamed on the outside but we may not see inflammation on the inside of our bodies. Internal inflammation may happen for many different reasons. Eating processed foods, sugar, and having high temperatures when cooking food, etc. are the main reasons for inflammation. If you have a high level of inflammation within your body, it can trigger many health problems. So, it is very important to combat this. The easiest way to combat is to use natural and alternative approaches, such as eating foods that are anti inflammatory and eliminating the ones that are inflammatory. It is also very important to note that drugs used to treat this condition have certain side effects. Taking drugs, such as advil/ibuprofen can cause problems to the stomach. So, it is important to know about the foods that are anti inflammatory.
Many of us may not know the true effect of whole foods from processed foods on our bodies. Diseases such as diabetes, excess weight gain, PCOS, coronary heart disease and other illnesses from various foods can contribute to the inflammation. Here is a list of fruits, drinks and foods that are anti inflammatory:
Foods, fruits and drinks like sugar, common cooking oils, dairy, trans fats, red and processed meat, alcohol, artificial food additives, refined grains, etc. are inflammatory and you should eliminate them in your diet to combat inflammation. Also, keep in mind that although fruits are very beneficial, many fruits contain sugar which is inflammatory and promotes certain diseases like cancer.
So, consider non-traditional fruits like cucumbers, avocados, olives, etc. to fight inflammation. Choose fresh foods often and more and choose fewer heavily processed foods or if you can avoid them. Cook with olive or coconut oil. Eat salads with plenty of fresh vegetables. The key is to have fruits, drinks and foods that are anti inflammatory and avoid those that contain added sugar and are inflammatory.
