If you wake up in the morning and feel achy, tired and stiff, you might be suffering from inflammation.
The difficult, frustrating thing with inflammation is that it can have a wide spectrum of effects. At one end of the scale, it can make day-to-day movements such as walking difficult. At the other end, it can cause great pain and make things really miserable for sufferers.
It’s therefore important to get control of inflammation if it’s having a negative impact on your life.
The latest Evolution Organics blog gives you the lowdown on what inflammation is, does to your body, and how natural remedies to fight inflammation can make a real difference.
Before we dive into this blog, it’s best to cover what exactly inflammation is and its effects.
Inflammation in the body is caused when white blood cells are produced as a means of protection against foreign organisms. This is an important function, and can protect us against things like bacteria and viruses.
However, some people have an immune system that will trigger the inflammation process when there isn’t a foreign body to fight against. This type of condition is called an autoimmune disease, an example of which is rheumatoid arthritis.
Studies have shown that globally, around 350 million people globally suffer with arthritis and joint diseases with inflammation of a key symptom.
Other inflammatory conditions include inflammatory bowel disease, which affects an estimated 620,000 people in the UK, and chronic inflammation.
The Natural Approach
There are plenty of common anti-inflammatory tablets available over the counter, but this isn’t necessarily the right way to go - particularly if your issue is long term.
Reliance on drugs to deal with issues such as inflammation is a far from ideal scenario for many people, so finding suitable alternatives is a positive step.
A great alternative option is to take the natural approach to inflammation management, and adopting an anti-inflammatory diet. By filling your body with anti-inflammatory agents from natural sources, your body can get the kit it needs to tackle inflammation, without relying on drugs and pills.
What natural remedies for inflammation are out there?
There are a host of anti-inflammatory foods that are heralded as being a great way of reducing inflammation and helping you move and live more freely.
According to Harvard University, vegetables such as tomatoes, spinach and kale are great ways to help reduce or tackle inflammation.
Nut varieties such as almonds and walnuts, as well as olive oils, are other great options in the fight against inflammation.
Any fish lovers will be delighted to read that salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines have all been touted as having anti-inflammatory capabilities. These all contain Omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for fighting inflammation.
And fruits like strawberries, cherries, oranges and blueberries are other healthy, exciting foods to try if you want to adopt an anti-inflammatory diet.
Foods to steer clear of include any refined carbohydrates such as white bread, chips, sugary drinks and red meats. These have all been highlighted as being potentially bad when it comes to inflammation.
