Do you have inflammation?

Updated: Sep 23, 2023



Hello friends! Hope all is well in your lives today. Today's blog is addressing inflammation - it's safe to say we ALL have some level of inflammation going on in our bodies. Common signs of inflammation in our bodies:

  • excess body fat

  • mood swings / depression / anxiety

  • gut issues

  • joint pain

  • brain fog

  • fatigue

  • colds / illnesses often

  • heaviness

  • ANY dis-ease dynamic

  • and on and on and on!

Why do we want to reduce inflammation? Oxidative damage is a biggie! Oxidative damage is damage to our actually cells, tissues, organs as a direct affect of inflammation. You only are as healthy as your tissues and organs. Some places you can begin: Fix your gut! Period. 70% of our immune system resides in our gut.

Fix your diet. Eliminate foods that cause inflammation in your body. For those that say your health isn't dependent on what you eat; you have been lied to. Our food directly communicates with our body. It either repels disease OR causes it. Reduce or Eliminate:

  • gluten

  • alcohol

  • sugar / sweeteners (processed and artificial)

  • processed foods (if it comes in a box or a bag, 90% of them shouldn't be eaten)

  • food sprayed with chemicals

  • meat fed with hormones and junk food

  • processed oils (seed oils, canola, etc)

  • 99% fast food

Manage your stress. Stress can directly cause oxidative damage when we increase our cortisol; especially chronically. Supplement. There are some supplements that can help you reduce the inflammation in your body.

  • Rhodiola can reduce stress that causes inflammation

  • L-Glutamine can help heal your gut so your immune system isn't being triggered

  • Turmeric (or curcumin)

  • Anti-oxidants

  • Omega-3s

  • Targeted probiotics

For supplements, please don't just go to your local drug store and buy whatever is on the counter. Those brands are just very expensive urine. The ingredients used in those products are not made to be bio-available for your body so it hardly ever even makes it to the cell. If you need some help finding good supplements please reach out to myself or someone who is trained to find your quality products.

So you may be asking, why should I be concerned about inflammation? Why does it matter? Long term effects of chronic inflammation:

  • Alzheimers / dementia

  • Missing out of life

  • Obesity

  • Heart failure

  • Disability - broke...

  • Later life spent in hospital instead of with loved ones

  • Shitting your pants

  • Losing control of your life

  • Diabetes

  • Doctors taking body parts that are essential to life

  • Debilitating pain

  • Infertility

  • Shame / self loathing

  • Allergies

  • Joint pain turning to dependent on wheel chairs

  • and on and on and on...

So often I see in my practice that people wait until they have multiple diseases before they make a change to get better. But sadly, even only half of those stick with it. That half end up back where they started, if not worse.

Email me and let me know - do you know someone like that?
