Tips To Reduce Inflammation Naturally

As we all know, food is medicine so choosing the right foods is very important when trying to reduce inflamamtion. You see a few years back, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and was put on anti-inflammatory meds.

After doing some research, I found out that these meds could mess with my liver enzymes if I took them long-term. So I decided to lose weight by eating healthy and guess what, after 3 months of this low-calorie diet, my CRP levels (inflammatory markers) went from 40 to 5!

I also started looking for anti-inflammatory foods to add to my diet and reduced all the food that caused inflamamtion. Nowadays I drink a lot of anti-inflammatory smoothies and I feel great!

So after battling this painful disease for some time now, here’s what helps me reduce my symptoms:

  • I drink 8 glasses of water every day, sometimes more.
  • I go for 1-hour walks 4-5 times per week
  • I try getting at least 7 hours of sleep daily
  • I stopped eating fatty foods
  • I stopped eating white flour and sugar
  • I do aerobics 3 times per week
  • I eat a lot of vegetables and soups

Now these tips apply to everyone regardless of which type of inflamamtion you have. After researching RA for years, I found that following these habits helped a lot of people so I adopted them and they really helped so please try them.
