I really like the Eating Well blogs; I always find helpful information there and I almost always agree with the advice. Today is no exception. Brierley Wright has a great article on chronic inflammation, what it is and how to avoid it. All the tips are simple changes to your diet and guidance for an exercise regime. Her ten ways to beat inflammation are:
- Increase Omega-3 fatty acids and reduce Omega-6 (i.e. add salmon and olive oil to your diet)
- Practice yoga.
- Consume soy.
- Get a massage.
- Limit trans-fats and saturated fats.
- Eat green leafy vegetables.
- Keep stress at bay.
- Sleep at least 6 hours each night.
- Exercise often.
- Drink green tea.
