Food is often looked at solely in terms of its impact on weight, but it is the safest, most effective and cheapest medicine for preserving and restoring overall health. Many foods contain micronutrients that positively impact the inflammatory cascade. Be sure to enjoy plenty of the anti-inflammatory, or ‘cooling’ foods listed below:

  • Dark green vegetables
  • Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables
  • Raw nuts and seeds
  • Omega-3 rich foods, such as salmon, mackerel and anchovies
  • Cold pressed oils, such as virgin olive oil, macadamia nut oil, grapeseed oil and avocado oil
  • Limited amounts of gluten free whole grains, such as amaranth, millet and quinoa

Further to this, we recommend avoiding these inflammatory, or ‘hot’ foods:

  • Fried foods
  • Red meat from corn fed animals
  • Partially hydrogenated (trans) fats
  • Saturated fats
  • Corn oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, and soy-based oils
  • Soft drinks
  • Refined sugars (limit natural sugars)
  • White flour and other processed grains
  • Most fast food and pre-packaged meals

Remember that your body performs best when it has quality fuel (food). Treat it right, and give it the tools to treat you right.
