Bright Is Best For Veggies

Posted on May 19, 2019


How’s your body feeling today? Do you get stomach pains? Joint pain? Headaches? Are you tired all the time? There are certain foods that cause inflammation in the body, and others which prevent and/or fight it.

What is inflammation? It’s part of the body’s immune response; it’s the body’s response to injury. If and when inflammation gets out of control, it can lead to chronic diseases. In other words, you don’t want too much inflammation in the body.

What are some foods that cause inflammation?

Table sugar and high fructose corn syrup are two “big ones.” They’re ubiquitous today. In limited quantities, you should be fine, but if your diet consists mostly of sugar and high fructose corn syrup, you’re going to have inflammation and it’s going to be bad. Is it any wonder that more and more people are drinking less sugary soda pop and opting for plain old water instead? It’s for their own good. Foods high in sugar include candy, chocolate, cakes, doughnuts and pastries. Other foods that lead to inflammation problems include: french fries, white breads, pasta, some cereals, processed meat, and excessive alcohol consumption.

What are some foods that prevent/fight inflammation? You can’t go wrong with berries! Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are so good for you. Do you like fish? Then eat more salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel and anchovies. What about avocados and broccoli? These are excellent foods to prevent/fight inflammation– enjoy! Also, if you like peppers, mushrooms, grapes, tomatoes, and dark chocolate, eat up… these are anti-inflammatory foods that will help you become healthier.

Do you need help figuring out what to eat more of and what to eat less of? Most of us do! Did you know chiropractor Dr. Jason Gerard of Lakewoods Chiropractic in Forest Lake, MN, can help you develop a healthier eating plan for your life? One of the reasons people fail in their diet is because they try to cut out everything they loved and just stick with “very healthy things” only– but that’s not sustainable. Why not have Dr. Gerard discuss options with you and come up with “little changes” that will end up bringing “big results” over time? Now’s the time to start thinking about what foods and drinks you put into your body everyday. By making some positive changes now, you’ll have less problems later in life.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
