National Nutrition Month: Anti-Inflammatory Foods
There’s always something new to learn when it comes to health and nutrition. This National Nutrition Month, we wanted to share some quick insights into the power of anti-inflammatory foods and how these diet choices can impact your health.
If you commonly suffer from headaches, back pain, neck pain, or general muscle and joint soreness, these issues may be due to inflammation. If you need to use pain medication regularly for similar problems – changing your diet could be just as impactful (and much better for your health in the long run).
It’s good to note that inflammation, in general, isn’t a bad thing. It’s simply a way for your body to heal injuries and ailments you may be suffering from. However, when inflammation moves from acute to chronic, it’s time to consider some lifestyle changes and options. Chronic inflammation is a sign that your body isn’t healing correctly, which could lead to larger issues if it is ignored.
Your diet has a huge impact on your body’s ability to deal with chronic inflammation. Some foods inhibit your body’s ability to heal, for example:
- Bread, pastries, and other sources of carbohydrates
- Fried foods
- Soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages
- Red meat and processed meat like hot dogs and sausages
On the other hand, anti-inflammatory foods help heal your body better and quicker. These foods include:
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Leafy greens
- Raw nuts
- Many more fruits and vegetables
A misaligned spine could also be impacting your body’s ability to deal with inflammation. Please consider booking an appointment with us to help get your body functioning as it should this National Nutrition Month!
