How to Begin an Anti-Inflammatory Diet

An anti-inflammatory diet keeps the gut microorganisms healthy and flourishing, while preventing the toxic chemicals that lead to low-level chronic inflammation from entering the bloodstream. A healthy gut sends signals of wellbeing through the vagus nerve to the heart and brain. Your gut is the key to experiencing overall physical and mental health! An Ayurveda lifestyle, foods, and herbs are used to reduce inflammation in the gut, which helps reduce arthritis, fibromyalgia, asthma, leaky gut, autoimmune disorders, and more! Ayurveda works to treat the whole system to prevent any disease and illness. We suggest starting by tracking what you normally eat. Write down a list of your diet for a week, so you can see what you eat and how you can make some changes to your diet. After this begin to add more anti-inflammatory foods and herbs into your diet. A natural, whole-food diet can help maintain and reduce inflammation. In general you want to eat organic foods with a diversity of micronutrients. We suggest increasing your fiber intake from vegetables and whole grains and incorporating more cooling foods.We suggest adding more fruits and dark leafy greens into your diet. It helps to remember that anything bitter is good for the liver!  An anti-inflammatory diet, especially for summer, can help cool the pitta dosha, reduce anger, and help reduce skin rashes or acne. We suggest eating less acidic and heating foods, such as fermented foods, red meats, fatty-foods, and deep-fried foods. Also, it is helpful to reduce your overall sugar intake to reduce inflammation. Some suggestions: turmeric, ginger, aloe, dandelion leaf, coconut oil, kale, and mint.
