Anti Inflammatory Swaps

Many studies today show that there is a link between gut health and inflammatory conditions. If you suffer from an inflammatory condition, one of the first steps to your healing journey should be to take a look at your diet and see what changes you can make to help clean it up.

Certain foods are known triggers because of the way they are produced. Many herbicides and pesticides that are sprayed on crops have been shown to be toxic to the body and can be contributing to our inflammatory load. The foods listed are some of our most consumed items in the standard North American Diet, and from over consumption and poor quality they are prevalent food sensitivity triggers that can be flaring up your symptoms.

Try these better quality swaps to help reduce your systemic inflammation.

Trying to change everything at once when starting our healing journey can feel very overwhelming. Focus on the things you can add to your daily routine, rather than everything that needs to be changed or avoided.

The first steps I advise clients to take include:

1) Sleep 7-9 hours

2) Eat 3 vegetable portions daily

3) Eat 1-2 fruit portions daily

4) Avoid or replace known food sensitivity triggers in your diet

5) Move your body daily

Essentially we want to increase our fiber intake, focus on restful sleep for recovery, increase the amount and variety of whole foods in our diet, and be grateful for the opportunity to move our bodies daily.

Inflammatory Conditions linked to diet- autoimmune conditions, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular health, cholesterol, arthritis, fibromyalgia and more.
