This post is the 3rd and final one in a 3-part series on chronic inflammation. For this post, I asked the opinions of four experts in the fields of medicine, wellness, and holistic healing for their advice on treating chronic inflammation with diet and herbs.
This roundup post is a little different from others you may have seen. In addition to the opinions of experienced professionals, it also refers you to several additional pieces of information – 3 clinical studies and online courses offered by 2 physicians -- that can help you learn more about the causes and health outcomes for chronic inflammation, and treatments that involve making dietary changes to reduce or eliminate it.
Even if you pursue a healthy lifestyle, eating well and exercising regularly, you may still be feeling fatigued, foggy, bloated, or experiencing joint pain or frequent respiratory infections. This roundup post + has something for anyone who may be feeling the effects of chronic inflammation, so read on…
Want to know more? These clinical studies may interest you:
- A study published in July 2016 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (abstract) found that eating nuts regularly may reduce chronic inflammation in the body.
- A study published just this month in Gastroenterology found linkages between protein in wheat and inflammation. This study complements an older one published back in 2012 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, which found that made similar connections between wheat amylase trypsin inhibitors and intestinal inflammation (particularly in, but not limited to, those suffering from celiac disease)
- A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in May 2016 demonstrated that acid reflux disease is not linked to acid but to inflammation. This belief about acid reflux was, until recently, mostly unchallenged.
Ready to take action? You might consider taking one of these e-courses:
- Board-certified naturopathic physician and certified nutrition consultant, Dr. Kellyann Petrucci’s 21-Day course, “Beat Inflammation,” offered on Mind Body Green, gives you a number of tips and tools to reduce inflammation and mitigate its effects on your body and lifestyle.
- Double board-certified MD, Dr. Amy Shah offers two courses, “The 7-Day Gut Reset” and “The Ultimate Guide to Inflammation,” on MindBodyGreen. The first course teaches you how to get your digestion back on track in a week, while the second one offers a 25-day regime that blends the wisdom of Eastern and Western medicine to help you understand what is making you inflamed, and how your environment may also affect your levels of inflammation.
And one final word on inflammation (the conversation continues!)…next month the Green and Prosperous blog will feature posts about using herbal remedies for chronic inflammation, including some important caveats to consider if you are using, have used, or plan to use herbs.
