Reduce Inflammation NOW to Avoid Cancer, Heart Disease, and Alzheimer’s Later
Inflammation not only causes pain, is also at the root of cancer development, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.
The good news is you don’t have to be the victim!
You CAN control inflammation by…
What you eat
- Kick the sugar habit! Craving something sweet? Try a little stevia, honey, or molasses instead of sugar
- Eat good fats such as organic coconut oil, avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, real butter!
- Eat more wild caught fish and shell fish.
- Dairy in limited quantities—and try some of the plant-based options that are available in most grocery stores such as “milk” from almonds, hemp, or coconut.
- Choose whole grains such as rice and quinoa instead of refined and highly processed grains (like the pastry at breakfast and the dinner roll at night).
- Eat a rainbow of vegetables. Go for 6+ vegetables a day. Throughout the week choose at least one 1 of each color: red, orange, yellow, green, purple, white.
Supplements you take
Make sure the supplements you take are high quality. That doesn’t always mean they are the most expensive!
- Fish Oils, 1000 mg daily.
- GLA, 500 mg daily
- BCM-95 Curcumin, 750 mg/day (note: there are lots of Curcumin products available, the BCM-95 has been the type that has really been shown to reduce inflammation. One brand is Curapro, but as long as you look for the “BCM-95” you should be go to go!
