What is the number 1 underlying issue of ALL health problems?
Inflammation! It is at the ROOT cause of all disease and health conditions.
Inflammation refers to your body’s process of fighting against things that harm it, such as infections, injuries, and toxins, in an attempt to heal itself. When something damages your cells, your body releases chemicals that trigger a response from your immune system to help address this stress. Long term inflammation causes many health issues.
Chronic systemic (full body) inflammation is affecting millions of people every day. This is where the body has produced an immune response to address the internal stress it is under.
• Brain fog, trouble concentrating, ADD or ADHD
• Low energy
• Joint and muscle pain
• Headaches & migraines
• Digestive issues like IBS, constipation, bloating etc.
• Nagging injuries that never heal
• High cholesterol, high blood sugar, diabetes, insulin resistance
• Autoimmune disorders
• Chronic diseases like heart disease or cancer
Fun Fact: It takes the body about 15-20 minutes to register fullness.
Some lifestyle stressors include:
• Chemical & toxin exposure
• Poor diet
• Sedentary lifestyle
• Smoking & alcohol, drug use
The good news is that we have many ways we can naturally lower chronic inflammation!
• Healthy Diet
• Gratitude and positivity
• Proper sleep and rest
• Optimal hydration
• Targeted supplementation
• Reducing toxin exposure
We want to FIRST lower the inflammatory and “anti-nutrient” foods in our diet: processed, packaged junk foods, fast foods, vegetable oils, conventional meats and dairy, sugars, white flours and artificial ingredients.
SECOND we want to consume HIGH QUALITY whole foods with emphasis on color, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to support the body in reducing the inflammation!
