36 Anti-Inflammatory Recipes to Feel & Look your Best
Did you know that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses – including chronic fatigue, obesity, bloating, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, many cancers, and even Alzheimer’s disease? Say What!?!
So what the heck is inflammation and what does it do to our bodies?
We have all seen and experienced inflammation in one way or another. When we experience swelling after spraining an ankle, see redness around a cut, or get a radiating sense of warmth from a localized infection, that is inflammation. While those symptoms are uncomfortable, they are also an awesome sign that white blood cells are getting sent to hurt areas of your body in order to protect and repair. In some sense, we need inflammation. It is our insides putting up a big fight for our well-being.
What we don’t need is systemic inflammation build up or chronically over-active systems that flood us with internal swelling. A low-grade chronic inflammation can occur because of stress, acid producing processed foods, a lack of movement, too much movement, poor sleep, or stress.
Basically, constant internal inflammation will mess you up. Luckily, food can help. More than drugs, more than doctor’s visits, more than anything else, what you put in your mouth will directly effect how smoothly you function. What you eat is the most powerful choice you can make in terms of inflammation. We offer you this cookbook as armor, as an element of your personal health toolbox.
