Anti-Inflammatory Eating: Access to Improved Healing with Food
Did you know?
Inflammation is how we heal!
That's right! Our body uses 'inflammation' to bring more blood to the areas that need attention, brings waste removal cells, and stimulates cellular turnover. Our body makes inflammation by using components of our food. Sometimes though, inflammation gets a little outta hand; too much of a good thing sometimes equals a bad thing. Eating foods that high content of inflammatory components can lead to an overproduction of inflammation in our systems—not just at the place you need it to heal.
Decreasing these foods—especially during periods of sickness or pain—can help reduce the systemic reaction and the long-term effects.
Some of these foods to avoid include:

Some of the foods you should eat are:
Fruits and Veggies
Curcumin or Turmeric
At Framework Chiropractic, we know adjustments are the foundation of healing. But eating a plant based, high fiber diet can help you heal even faster!
