Inflammation Medication 

Long-term Anti-inflammatory Solutions

 

      To win the battle against low-grade chronic inflammation, you will need to address:

 

(1)   Dietary /lifestyle practices that cause tissue-damaging oxidative stress

 

(2)   Elimination of toxins and microbes from the body

 

(3)   Deficient intakes of nutrients regulating the inflammatory response

 

Thus the best way to prevent chronic inflammation and associated oxidative stress that increases the risk for heart disease is to maintain a proper body weight and eat a diet that provides essential nutrients in adequate amounts and rich in foods that have anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant actions.      

 

(1)              Remove / Moderate Source of OXIDATIVE Damage

 

Processed food

   Additives, Preservatives, dyes, excess heavy metals, MSG

 

Excess red meat / dairy

(increases homocysteine levels)

   Homocysteine levels can be modulated  - by consuming sufficient B-vitamins (B2, B6, B12, folate) and magnesium

 

Microwaved food

(Oxidants)

 

Microwaves – Not so convenient for your health
