What Foods Should I Eat to Fight Pain & Inflammation?
What is Pain and Inflammation?
Most of us live with at least one painful and debilitating chronic condition, including arthritis, musculoskeletal disorders, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and mental health conditions to name a few. Regardless of their cause and varied manifestations, they all have something in common, ongoing inflammation that results in some sort of pain either way.
Inflammation is the body’s natural way of defending against foreign invaders, viruses, pathogens and helping us heal from injury. But sometimes it can go into overdrive and turn into chronic inflammation and this is when we really feel pain and unwell. Chronic inflammation can interrupt and damage body cells. When body cells don’t function properly due to repeated stressors, they are unable to protect against disease or can initiate changes in the body which can contribute to the development of a disease such as cancer, heart disease, arthritis and diabetes.
