Let's talk about Food! I Love food. I especially love food that is tasty and nutritious - healing foods.
First, let's get a foundation of understanding about food and then we will discuss which foods help us heal.
Now that we understand better about what food consists of, let's talk about what foods cause or decrease inflammation in the body depending on their molecular make-up.
Besides food, other great ways to decrease liver and overall inflammation is... GET ADJUSTED, SLEEP & EXERCISE. Sleep, people. And get your spine checked. Sleep is the best weight loss tip and de-stressor for the body and mind. Joint alignment heals the local joint injury and inflammation which allows the immune system to stop making swelling, redness and heat processes from happening. Exercising and stretching squeezes muscles which squeeze lymph fluid into cardiovascular system and allows for blood circulation and renewal. Something to note: when my patients heal through chiropractic adjustments, they begin feeling great in their body and they WANT to exercise more. ;)
