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
