How do I avoid and/or control inflammation?

- Cleansing Diet

Spring water is high in minerals and will make your body alkaline. Drinking spring water will help to throw toxicity out by purifying blood. As simple as it sounds to drink lots of water, there are few people who actually do that. When you wake up in the morning, make sure you drink one to two glasses of water before eating anything else.

Start your mornings with raw fresh organic vegetable juice. Make sure you include vegetables like kale, broccoli, celery, cabbage and chard among others. These green superfoods help to clean and remove toxicity out of body. Other superfoods like mango, papaya and broccoli are also anti-inflammatory. Generally speaking dairy products aren’t that good for you but yogurt has beneficial bacteria called “acidophilus” that helps increase “good” stomach bacteria in order to fight off and keep under balance the “bad” bacteria in stomach.

- Change your Diet

Simple carbohydrates, refined sugar and excessive omega 6 fatty acids in our diet are the main promoters of inflammation. You should have at least one raw organic meal a day including superfoods. Raw organic superfoods have thousands of micronutrients, live enzymes, phytochemicals and antioxidants. Avoid eating top 10 Additives to Avoid, overheating your food and sugar sweetened food and beverages.  Wild sockeye salmon is a lean protein and a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids that is anti-inflammatory.  Nuts including walnuts, pecans and Brazilian nuts are full of omega 3 fatty acids.

- Get Enough Sunlight

Vitamin D helps with calcium and vitamin C absorption. Lack of vitamin D will lead to calcium deficiencies and hinder sleep and cause weight gain. Vitamin D plays an important role in promoting immune system and preventing chronic diseases.  Vitamin D from sun light is a natural anti-inflammatory source that prevents many chronic diseases.

20 minutes exposure per week to moderate sunlight would be a great benefit to individuals who do not have skin diseases, chronic diseases or other major illnesses and provides some vitamin D for your body.
