Depression, cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, dementia,

allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue, autoimmune diseases and more are

all inflammatory diseases.

That begs the question, what is causing all this rampant inflammation?

It's primarily our food: too many inflammatory foods and not enough

anti-inflammatory foods.

While there are many ways food can trigger inflammation, food is also

the most powerful source of anti-inflammatory compounds. Many of

those 25,000+ phytochemicals are powerful anti-inflammatories.

Polyphenols in plant foods are among the best natural compounds for

fighting inflammation.

Where is the best place to find these compounds? At the end of the

rainbow: a rainbow of pigments and bright colors found in plant

foods, red, green, yellow, orange, purple.

Extra virgin olive oil contains oleocanthal, for example, which

activates the same anti-inflammatory receptors as ibuprofen without

all the side effects.

Spices are anti-inflammatory powerhouses, such as turmeric, ginger

and rosemary. Meat cooked with spices neutralizes possible

inflammation. Omega-3 fats found in wild foods, fish, shellfish and

some nuts and seeds are also powerful anti-inflammatories.

Mushrooms, including Shitake, Maitake, Reishi, Chaga, turkey tail and

Cordyceps, contain powerful immune-regulating and anti-cancer

compounds called polysaccharides.

And foods rich in vitamins and minerals boost immunity and reduce

inflammation, including vitamin C, zinc, selenium, and vitamin D.

Vitamin D alone regulates hundreds of genes that affect inflammation

and immunity.

So a meal of guavas and parsley (vitamin C), pumpkin seeds and

oysters (zinc), Brazil nuts and sardines (selenium) and porcini

mushrooms and herring (vitamin D), is an anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting superfood.

I'm not sure what you'll be able to do with all those ingredients, but

you get the idea!

The best thing you can do for your health is to reduce or eliminate

inflammatory foods and increase anti-inflammatory foods starting
