šŸ¤ÆšŸ˜±7 Foods That Triggers Inflammation In The Body That You Probably Didn't Know OfšŸ¤ÆšŸ˜±

Chronic inflammation ā€“ this means long-term inflammation, which can last for several months and even years. It results from failure to eliminate whatever was causing an acute inflammation. The immune system attacks healthy tissues, mistaking them for harmful pathogens.Ā 

Inflammation is becoming one of the most prolifically studied conditions ā€“ and for a good reason.Scientists and medical experts are linking chronic inflammation with a variety of other ailments, from obesity, arthritis, joint pain and heart disease to depression and diabetes.

HERE ARE SEVENĀ FOODSĀ THAT CAUSE INFLAMMATION & THE ALTERNATIVE TO FIGHT BACK:

1. SugarĀ 

Itā€™s hiding in cereal, baked goods, crackers (even the gluten-free ones), chips, ketchup, sauces and well, letā€™s face it ā€“ itā€™s in everything! Packaged foods are notoriously laced with sugars so youā€™ll want to get in the habit of quickly checking the labels whenever youā€™re shopping.

Alternative

Ā Go for organicĀ foods wherever possible!Ā Fresh whole fruits, fats from avocado, nuts, seeds, oily fish and grass-fed meats and if youā€™re looking for a sweetener try Organic raw dates,Ā organic and unrefined coconut sugar, agave. Clean Eating can be super fun. There are endless options to choose from.

2. Refined Vegetable OilsĀ 

Bad fats wreak havoc on your entire system and create inflammation in the body. While your body is constantly inflamed it is in a state of stress. To shift from a state of stress to healing, you need to remove the bad fats and go for the good ones.Oils like canola, corn, sunflower, safflower, and soybeanā€”as well as margarine and vegetable fatsā€”are highly processed and contain an unhealthy ratio of inflammatory omega-6 to anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.

Alternative:Ā 

Organic olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, butter and ghee are all excellent options for healthy oils. If youā€™re using high-heat, avocado oil, coconut oil, butter and ghee have the highest smoke points, while olive oil should be used at very low temperatures or raw.

3. FriedĀ Foods

Tempura, french fries, chips and other fried foods lead to inflammation and an increased risk of diabetes amongst other nutrition related diseases. They can also really mess with the hormones in your body that tell you when youā€™re full, leading to over-eating. But the good news is, We have even BETTER options for you

Alternative

The magically word is "Baking". As a society we have become so accustomedĀ to fast food that we give up our rights to eating good and healthy foods. The best alternativeĀ to fried foods is baking everything and eating whole foods.

4. Gluten / Wheat

Ā Breads, pasta,Ā seasonings in packaged foods often contain wheat or gluten. ā€œIf you eliminate wheat from your diet, youā€™re no longer hungry between meals because youā€™ve cut out the appetite stimulant, and consequently you lose weight very quickly. Removing Gluten/ wheat from your diet allows you to take better control over inflammatory diseasesā€”ranging from arthritis to psoriasis to inflammatory bowel diseaseā€”by having them cut out foods that contain gluten.

Alternative

Ā Lettuce wraps make a great substitute for corn or wheat wraps that lead to inflammation and weight gainĀ 

5. Saturated Fats

Several studies have shown that saturated fats trigger adipose (fat tissue) inflammation, which is not only an indicator for heart disease but it also worsens arthritis inflammation. Pizza and cheese are the biggest sources of saturated fats in the average American diet, according to the National Cancer Institute. Other culprits include meat products (especially red meat), full-fat dairy products, pasta dishes and grain-based desserts.

Alternative

There are many substitutes you can use. Vegan cheese is one of the most well known cheese alternative that many cheese lovers are now switching to.


6. Alcohol

A lot of alcoholic drinks contain crazy amounts of sugar, and drinking even once or twice per weekend can impact weight gain and inflammation in the body. If youā€™re on a mission to eat clean and shed weight, switching up your intake can make a huge difference.Ā 

Alternative

Ā Water helps you gently release weight while hydrating your body and bringing inflammation down. If youā€™re craving bubbles, try having sparkling-water with a big squeeze of fresh lime or lemon, or drink kombucha in moderation.

7. Processed MeatsĀ 

with nitrates and other additives,Ā processed meats arenā€™tĀ healthy source of protein or nutrients but can cause an awful lot of inflammation in the body. Some people even have sensitivities to nitrates thatĀ causeĀ headaches and donā€™t realize the source of their problem.

Alternative

Ā You can still enjoy meats, just with a healthier spin. Itā€™s easy to makeĀ homemadeĀ shredded chicken,Ā turkey or tuna for sandwiches & wraps on the go, Ā or choose nitrate-free and organic meats (you can find sausage and deli-meat thatā€™s uncured)

BarbaraĀ Tell's Her Journey With Inflammation & Turmeric

This isĀ Barbara's life story a personal journeyā€¦ It's her journey on taking backĀ her life from daily inflammation.

Barbara writes: "I donā€™t usually write posts like this, but after my experience with extreme inflammation I felt that I need to spread the wordā€¦"

For the last 7 years Iā€™ve tried 12 differentĀ supplements online for the inflammation in my wrists and kneesā€¦ Each one promised to do what the others couldnā€™t.

ButĀ certain prescribeĀ supplements arenā€™t naturalā€¦ and theyā€™d give me side effects varying from ā€œnervous shakingā€ and loss of appetiteā€¦ to ā€œanti-socialā€ behavior, like avoiding outings with my friendsā€¦

I knowā€¦ very odd!

ā€¦.

Just to give you some backgroundā€¦ I could barely get out of bed some days. My knees would ache.. and would send shots ofĀ scorchingĀ pain down my shinsā€¦

Same with my wristsā€¦ I remember canceling visits with my 8 year old granddaughter on quite a few occasionsā€¦

In short, my joint inflammation has progressively had a bigger and BIGGER effect on my personal lifeā€¦ and at my ageā€¦ family and friends are what I value the most.

Moving forwardā€¦

AFTER 8 YEARS OF TRIAL AND ERRORā€¦ I FOUND SOMETHING THAT WORKED.

TURMERIC CURCUMINĀ EXTRACT.

Nowā€¦ if you suffer from any inflammation, youā€™ve probably heard of the benefits of turmeric beforeā€¦ and so had Iā€¦

In fact, Iā€™ve tried to use theĀ powderĀ version a few times myselfā€¦

But after a little bit of research I found out that your body needs turmeric curcumin root EXTRACT to have a long-term effect.

Basically, the powder version only has 2% of the pain & inflammation compoundā€¦ whereas turmericĀ curcumin extract contains 95% curcuminoidsā€¦ This is what my holistic doctor told me anyway.

She also mentioned that you need toĀ add black pepper for your body to absorb all of the turmeric rootā€¦ Who Knew?!

This isnā€™t possible if youā€™re taking powder or grinding it up yourself (too much work and hurts my wrists!).

So I dug deeperā€¦ and finally found a company that sellsĀ CONCENTRATEDĀ turmeric curcumin root extract (with black pepper) in a vegetarianĀ capsule format.

Thereā€™s about 80+ reviews on their product, they all sound a lot like thisā€¦

ā€œExcellent product. Took away the pain in my knee's afterĀ a few consistent days and I have had no pain since. I know my results aren't typical but I have recommended to all my friends.ā€Ā ā€” Darlene Damazio . Maryland

The companyā€™s name isĀ ā€œVibrant Livingā€Ā and you can learn moreĀ by going to their homepage.


Living TurmericĀ 

What happened over the next 2 months was nothing short of amazingā€¦



This is based on my own personal experienceā€¦ I donā€™t want you to think Iā€™m trying to sell you some random productā€¦

Iā€™m not making any money if you decide to buy itā€¦ Iā€™m just want you to know itā€™s out there.

Within a few weeks I was feeling like myself againā€¦ playdates with my granddaughter, luncheons with my closest girlfriends, I even signed up for a painting classā€¦

Painting is something Iā€™ve always wanted to do, but never thought Iā€™d be able to follow through onā€¦. I get to ENJOY my life for once, without worrying my day might get cut short.

Since I started taking the concentrated version of Turmeric curcumin root 2 months agoā€¦ I havenā€™t had a single inflammation episodeā€¦

Every once in awhile Iā€™ll feel a quick ache in my joints.. or a little bit of pressureā€¦ but thatā€™s when I take one of my ā€œBreath-of-Life Dropsā€ (thatā€™s what my husband calls them)ā€¦ and the ache is gone within the hour

It might not be for everyoneā€¦

If youā€™ve tried a concentrated version of Turmeric Curcumin, and it hasnā€™t workedā€¦ keep lookingā€¦ Iā€™m sure the right supplement is out there for youā€¦

BUTĀ it hasĀ completely changed my lifeā€¦ I even introduced my neighbour to it, and she says her inflammation RARELY pops up.

Iā€™m telling youā€¦ itā€™s worth trying.

If youā€™ve tried other meds and supplements that havenā€™t workedā€¦ donā€™t give up hopeā€¦ try this stuff first.

And hereā€™s a few more of their reviews from their websiteā€¦

Well I have always said the proof is in the pudding...

And I am living proof pudding!

Let me know how it works for you!
