Inflammation in the body is a huge problem for many people. Inflammation in the body is known to possibly lead to chronic diseases including cancer and heart disease, arthritis, obesity and many more. What we put into our bodies surely plays a huge roll on how our bodies respond, repair, heal as well as degenerate etc. Eating the proper foods can help one combat this common issue. Eating a mostly plant based diet containing plenty of antioxidants can help one fight inflammation. Inflammation on the surface of the body is easy to see, redness, swelling, maybe hot to the touch but its whats under the surface that is of the most concern.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    1. Inflammation is one of those things that diet plays a very large role in. Generally there is nothing easy about changing ones diet but paying closer attention to foods that are acidic and ones that are alkaline etc can help reduce a persons likelihood to suffer from inflammatory issues and often help issues that are already existing. Healing the body is not an easy feat but certainly doable!! Best of luck on your journey 🙂
