Inflammation in the body is a normal response to fighting disease, damage and infection. Inflammation can become quite extreme and prolonged when not addressed, impacting daily life and leading to a host of compounding conditions as it becomes chronic. You can think of this chronic inflammation as a car alarm for the body. Invaders get in and inflammation sounds an alarm, your immune system responds and will eventually disarm the alarm. The alarm could be set off by a variety of short-term environmental or physiological stimuli.
There is another more insidious stimuli that is constantly triggering your alarm on a daily basis: food. Recent research is pointing to what we eat and chances are you; on a daily basis are consuming inflammatory and potentially damaging foods. Lets take a look at some of the biggest offending foods.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of all inflammatory foods, but it is a great start to use as a guide in cleaning up your lifestyle. Simply being aware and informed on the inflammatory nature of many of the foods we eat puts you the smaller percentage of people consciously aware and present to that you are what you eat.
