[5 Lifestyle Changes That Can Reduce Inflammation]

Intro:

If you’ve been struggling with inflammation, then this post is for you. 

Here’s the thing:

Inflammation is a natural process. It’s how your body’s white blood cells protect you from outside invaders and infections. For example—inflammation is important for helping to prevent viruses and bacteria from doing a ton of damage to your body over time. 

But sometimes, inflammation isn’t caused by a ‘good’ reason. 

Sometimes, it’s caused by lifestyle habits that aren’t contributing positively to better health and wellness outcomes. 

This takes a toll on your body, and isn’t good for you.

For best results, you really only want inflammation to come into play when it’s needed. 

And it’s always better if it happens less, as opposed to more often. 

So in this post, we’re going to explore 5 different lifestyle changes that you can make, starting today, to help you beat inflammation and live a healthier life. 

Let’s dive into it. 

1. Eat Anti-Inflammatory Foods

There are actually a lot of foods that qualify as ‘anti-inflammatory.’ 

In other words–eating these foods can actually help you to fight inflammation—and that’s awesome. 

Some such foods include staples like:

  • Tomatoes
  • Fatty fish
  • Fruits
  • Nuts
  • Olive oil
  • Green leafy vegetables

If a lot of these foods remind you of the Mediterranean diet, you’d be correct. 

In fact, a lot of people believe that the Mediterranean diet may be the best diet for lowering inflammation. 

Eating anti-inflammatory foods is an excellent way to help fight this health problem and give yourself better health outcomes in the future. 

However, it’s also important that you stop eating inflammatory foods as well! 

You can also use cannabis to help prevent and treat inflammation. It has shown some promise as an anti-inflammatory agent in its own right—so that’s a good thing to note if you enjoy smoking marijuana or eating edibles. 

2. Stop Eating Foods That Cause Inflammation

So, which foods cause inflammation?

This is a good and important question to ask! 

In general, when it comes to high inflammation risk, you’re generally looking at foods like:

  • Sugar
  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Margarine
  • Vegetable oil
  • Seed oils
  • Refined carbs
  • Processed meat

Avoiding these types of foods can really help you to prevent inflammation to begin with. 

A lot of people don’t realize this—but a poor diet can actually set you up for pretty severe inflammation in life. And this is NOT a good thing! 

3. Exercise

Exercise can be a powerful prevention and treatment technique for inflammation. 

In fact, researchers have found that just one 20-minute session of moderate exercise can stimulate the immune system and act as an anti-inflammatory, producing an anti-inflammatory cellular response in the body. 

So if you want to beat that inflammation in the long term, it turns out that getting up, getting out, and getting some serious exercise is the way to go! 

4. Lose Weight

Not surprisingly, scientific studies have shown that weight loss helps to improve inflammation. 

If you’re overweight, you’re just going to be at a higher risk for a lot of diseases and conditions—and inflammation is one issue that’s going to crop up more if you’re overweight than it will if you’re a healthy weight. 

In other words—start counting those calories and get down to a healthy body weight! It matters—for health, wellness, and reducing chronic inflammation. 

5. Control Your Blood Sugar Levels

Unfortunately, higher blood sugar levels tend to lead to higher levels of inflammation. 

How do you control this?

By avoiding sugar and simple carbohydrates. 

One rule of thumb is this:

You can limit or avoid ‘white’ foods. 

This includes sugar, white flour, white rice, bread, pasta, etc. You can also avoid anything that has high fructose corn syrup in it. 

If you take these steps seriously, you can help to cut back on those high blood sugar levels. This is good for your body—and it’ll also help you to control that inflammation and keep it to a minimum. 

Conclusion

There you have it. 

5 lifestyle changes that can help you actually control inflammation in your life. 

Equipped with this information, you can now make some smarter, healthier decisions about your body and wellness routine. 

Remember—all of this stuff matters. 

Make sure to keep an eye on it. That inflammation certainly won’t do you any long-term health and wellness favors!
