Inflammation Reducing Foods
I like simplicity, especially when it comes to situations or things that cause us to feel out of control or hopeless. SIMPLIFYING can be, arguably, the best HEALER during experiences like this.
I can only imagine that many of us feel out of control and discouraged when we feel we are doing all the right and “healthy” things to battling inflammation but nothing seems to be working.
So here’s what I’m gonna do: I’m not gonna ramble off a long evidence-based article to you here; though they absolutely have their place.
I’m gonna simplify the –ISH out of this, so that you can start to feel better!
Here is a straight-forward list of wonderful ingredients (many herbal of course!) and foods that can help with reducing inflammation:
Whew! Did you realize how many amazing ingredients are out there and readily accessible to help aid in fighting inflammation within the body!? (and that list isn’t even exhaustive!!)

Eating Well: Anti-Inflammation Tips
Now, we need to understand that nutrition is NOT the only way to tackle inflammation within the body. There are medicines (both prescription and OTC) and many other methods. As always, with anything medical, consult with your medical provider before deciding on which treatment is best for you.
Here, this article is meant to be a guide for those who decide they want to improve their nutrition approach to inflammation within the body!
So, if we are in the context of using food as medicine, how can we best eat well for reducing inflammation?
Well, healthy eating and food in general is very much culturally influenced and learned behaviors. We can find ourselves in bad habits or negative ways of thinking when it surrounds food and then need to back track to why and where those came from. So, it’s no surprise when we think of anti-inflammatory recipes for dinner we can be overwhelmed because it truly is a paradigm shift in how we grew up or developed our relationship with foods.
But NO FEAR! We CAN turn this around!
Here is a simple list on eating well anti-inflammation tips:
- Keep a journal of your symptoms for right after you eat a meal- notice patterns
- Stay hydrated! (90oz baseline)
- Reduce stress
- Daily breath practices (literally you only need 1-2 minutes!)
- Daily movement
Those are ACHIEVABLE simple tips right?
Heck yeah we can do this!
