How to live an Anti-inflammatory lifestyle

Health and Wealth

Inflammation is a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection . It’s mainly a reaction from your immune system. Today we are going to learn simple steps that may help you on your journey in wellness.

What’s at the root of chronic inflammation?

An imbalanced immune system contributes to chronic inflammation by sending your body misdirected signals. Inflammatory cells are very powerful (this helps get rid of invaders before they can do harm) and produce a constant, low-grade flow of strong inflammatory markers into the blood stream that can cause damage with time.

To start with brush and floss your teeth regularly. Wellness is not just the absence of disease, but the presence of vitality and health. This is also true when it comes to oral wellness. Just because you don’t have any cavities, doesn’t mean you’ve achieved oral wellness. Making sure your mouth is in sync with your entire body is a process and a routine.

Audit your diet. Choosing the right foods can help your body by blocking certain stages in the inflammatory cascade or by removing toxic by-products.

Anti-inflammatory foods include:

👉🏾dark berries (including blueberries and blackberries)

👉🏾red wine (in moderation a glass a day)

👉🏾dark chocolate (a square or two a day, and be sure it’s not processed with alkali because this greatly reduces the major antioxidant flavanol)

Turmeric Elixir:

👉🏾2 teaspoons organic dried turmeric (or fresh turmeric if it’s available)

👉🏾1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

👉🏾1-2 tablespoons lemon rind (from unwaxed organic lemon)

👉🏾1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (depending on desired taste)

👉🏾2 cups water (or coconut water if you want it sweeter)

👉🏾1-2 tablespoons raw organic honey to taste (you can use organic maple syrup as an alternative).

Blend all these ingredients into a bright orange solution. Store in the refrigerator up to 5 days freeze up to 3 months

Add Turmeric to your diet: Turmeric contains curcumin, which extinguishes inflammation by shutting off pro-inflammatory markers and reducing free radicals. Turmeric can be consumed in food, as a tea, in capsules or in a solution.

Cut out chemicals: Exposure to pesticides and preservatives causes inflammation by invading cells and destroying tissue.Be especially careful with cleaning products. There are many natural options that are effective and much less toxic to you and your family. Stick to homemade food instead of highly-processed foods that come in plastic containers.

Get regular exercise: Regular exercise reduces inflammation very effectively by improving circulation and lymphatic flow, and reducing body fat. You can do any type of exercise as long as it gets your heart pumping. Set a goal to work out for at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week and work up to it bit by bit.

Have a stress routine: When you are stressed out have a routine with healthy coping mechanisms that will help you stay on track. Inflammation is also triggered in response to stress and anxiety. The more stress in your life, the more likely it is you’re headed towards an inflamed state. Consider starting a meditation program or try journaling every night both help release stress.

Always consult with your do it or trusted physician if you have any concerns before changing your regular diet or taking new supplements.

Hey everyone, happy Monday! Today we are learning about the famous keto diet. The ketogenic diet is a very low carb, high fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low carb diets.

What foods can you eat?

You can eat nuts, seeds, full-fat cheese and other dairy products, plain Greek yogurt, non starchy and fibrous vegetables, oils, along with smaller amounts of meats, eggs and fish, become keto diet mainstays.

You’ll need to sharply limit carbohydrates, including bread and baked goods, sweets, pasta, breakfast cereals, starchy vegetables like potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn and peas, beans, fruit, and beer.

Thirsty? Reach for the water bottle, or enjoy some sparking water. Unsweetened coffee and tea also are allowed. Minimize alcohol intake; if you do drink, choose low-carb options (vodka, tequila) and soda water as a mixer.

Dose it work for weight loss?

In simpler terms the answer is yes but there are a few things you should know first.Many people have said that adhering to low- or very-low-carbohydrate ketogenic diets helps people lose weight. However, long term there is little difference between a keto diet and a higher carbohydrate diet.

ensuring that they get enough vitamins and minerals from their food

eating more healthful fats, such as olive oil, oily fish, and avocados, than saturated fats 

avoiding processed foods that contain saturated fat

reintroducing some carbohydrates slowly once they reach a moderate weight, if weight loss is their goal

Alkaline Diet; What you need to know first hand?

Health and Wealth, Mini Series

Alkaline Diet, is it a popular trend? Or something worth trying. It has been picking up a lot of attention lately from everyone around, so today we are going to talk about it.

The Alkaline Diet claims to improve your health, help you lose weight, and even fight cancer. The Diet is based on a theory that some foods cause your body to promote acid, which is harmful. They say if you eat certain foods or drink only certain things when you change the acid level in your body, your PH level will change as well.

The pH scale measures how acidic or basic something is, on a scale of 0-14. Something alkaline is on the necessary end of the scale, or greater than 7. Now a big question upfront is, is it safe? The alkaline Diet reinforces healthy eating. The Diet recommends eating more vegetables, fruits, and drinking lots of water and cutting back on sugar, alcohol, meat, and processed foods. All of these things will help improve your overall health, help you lose weight, and even help lower your cancer risk. If you’re considering starting any diet, it’s essential to talk your doctor first. You should know that the changes you make to your diet will not impact the pH levels of your blood, but they could have a positive effect on your overall health.
