Reduce Inflammation For Optimal Health
Jul 25, 2016

Inflammation is defined throughout the Atlanta Chiropractic community as a localized reaction to infection, irritation, or injury that leads to:

  • Warmth
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain

Inflammation can be internal or external and is recognized as the body’s way of preventing sudden injury or infections from worsening.

Atlanta Chiropractic Treatment for Inflammation

However, when inflammation becomes a constant source of concern, the immune system starts to mistake normal cells as foreign intruders and attacks it.

This process becomes destructive to your entire health and can cause critical long-term damage if left ignored or untreated.

If you suffer from severe inflammation within your joints, muscles, or tissue, adjusting your diet might be the answer to living a pain- life

Foods To Avoid and Include When It Comes To Inflammation

Foods like white sugar, dairy, alcohol, and flour are all responsible for causing inflammation. Removing foods that are high in trans-fats should also be considered.

Instead, substitute these types of food with:

  • Blueberries
  • Dark leafy vegetables
  • Oranges
  • Fatty fish (not farm raised)
  • Cashews
  • Walnuts
  • Almonds
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Saffron
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
