The Anti-inflammatory diet
A top Charlotte NC Chiropractors suggests that rather than resorting to the treatment of symptoms through medication, the healthiest and most natural solution is to treat the cause(s) of your chronic inflammation. For many of our patients, the most effective solution is to change your diet. Patients who must deal with chronic inflammation, should consider a diet that consists of naturally anti-inflammatory foods such as, fruits, vegetables, nuts, wild caught fish, organic free range meat, and Omega 3 fats
What is inflammation?
The most commonly held misconception is that inflammation is bad. Not one single night goes by without seeing a TV commercial for medications that are advertised to be anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is like ice cream is to the body. It is can be a special treat when taken in minimal amounts, but too much inflammation will lead to long-term problems. Inflammation is the process that our body uses to protect us against physical injury or infection. If you fall and twist your ankle, the process of inflammation brings fluids that will deliver healing and protection for the injured joint. However, there is a problem when inflammation becomes self-perpetuating. Your body produces more anti-inflammatory in response to the existing inflammation. At that point, inflammation no longer helps to heal, it becomes a source of pain and stiffness.
Inflammation and degenerative disease
- Chronic inflammation is the most common reason for every degenerative disease we face.
- Most people are convinced that the best way to deal with inflammation, is to take use of over the counter medications.
- These types of medications have health threatening side effects.
- The most common in use over the counter are aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen. These medications have serious side effects such as: digestive problems, nausea, diarrhea, GI bleeds, kidney disorders, and increased risk for stroke and heart disease.
