How to reduce body-inflammation using natural and alternative approaches!
You can reduce inflammation by eating in the right way. It is advised that you eat lots of vegetables especially the dark green leafy vegetables, and raw fruits like cucumbers, avocados and olives. Eat beans, nuts, fish oil, hemp oil, olive oil and coconut oil. Avoid hydrogenated fats such as margarine because they are unhealthy. Add essential fatty acids to your diet. It is recommended that you take omega 3 fatty acids because they are in short supply in our modern society.
Eat foods that are high in antioxidants. Antioxidants are very important because they help to improve digestion and circulation and also reduce inflammation in the body naturally. Many diseases and conditions such as cancer, hypertension, high blood pressure, cataracts and gastrointestinal disorders can be avoided by eating foods that are high in antioxidants 5 - 9 times a day.
Ensure that you drink plenty of water because it will keep your body hydrated and also helps in digestion.
Exercising for 30 - 60 minutes 3 - 5 times a week will actually help you to reduce body weight from exerting pressure on the joints and ligaments. When there is less pressure on joints and ligaments, it means less inflammation in your body.
If you avoid pro inflammatory foods in your diet by eating the right foods, you will not only feel better, but you will also slow down the aging process.
