Anti-inflammatory Diet

Anti-inflammatory Diet

Anti-Inflammatory Diet in Vancouver

It is becoming increasingly clear that a host of illnesses - including heart disease, arthritis, autoimmune conditions, many cancers and Alzheimer’s disease - are influenced in large part by chronic inflammation. Chronic Inflammation is a process in which the immune system becomes off balance, and persists unnecessarily in its efforts to repair the body and repel pathogens. The prolonged process results in damage to healthy tissue.

What promotes Inflammation?

Stress

Lack of exercise

Genetic predisposition

Dietary and Lifestyle factors 

Toxins

Dysbiosis - microbial imbalance in the body

The Ideal Way to Treat Inflammation

Poor diet is perhaps the main contributor, and the ideal place to begin addressing chrnoic inflammation.

The Anti-Inflammatory Diet is not a diet in the popular sense - it is not intended as a weight-loss program (although people can and do lose weight on it if they have excess fat), nor is it an eating plan to stay on for a limited period of time. Rather, it is a way of selecting and preparing foods based on scientific knowledge of how they can help your body remain in optimal health. Along with influencing inflammation this diet will provide steady energy and ample vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, nutrients, and dietary fiber.

Our Naturoapthic Doctors will design the Anti-Inflammatory diet based on your health picture, genetic predispositions, and capabilities.  You may discuss food sensitivity testing or you may just want to try a basic plan but either way you will experience a reduction in irritation in your body.
