What we choose to put into our body doesn’t just affect how you look on the outside, it also affects the way that you feel and behave.
For many patients who first visit our Atlanta Chiropractic office, the connection between poor nutrition and personal health is not clear.
Many people who suffer from inflammation are unaware of how their personal diet habits influence their pain.
Inflammation and Personal Diet
Suffering from internal inflammation is caused by particular substances that exist within your body, which your immune system identifies as potential threats. Inflammation tends to arise after your immune system has attacked such elements, leading to:
- Swollen and painful joints
- Limited motion and flexibility
- Chronic stress
- Extreme fatigue
- Chronic pain
If you are continuously consuming particular foods that your body does not agree with, the type of inflammation you suffer from can worsen and eventually lead to some other chronic diseases.
Check out the following types of foods that are known for causing significant inflammation:
- Red meat
- Shortening or Margarine
- Fried foods/fast food
- White bread
- White rice
- Vegetable oil
- Refined flour
- Synthetic sweeteners
- Saturated fats
- Artificial additives
Foods That Combat Inflammation
Instead of depending on various prescription medications to reduce your inflammation, consider picking up the following foods the next time you visit your local Atlanta grocery store:
- Olive oil
