If you are looking for a real long and healthy life, natural anti inflammatory foods are the key. In this article you will find a list of anti inflammatory foods to choose from to achieve that and help you fight against autoimmune and chronic inflammatory disorders.
The word inflammation is derived from a Latin word ‘inflammare’ that means ‘on fire’. It is a set of biological processes involving the natural reaction of our body to harmful stimuli, i.e. injuries, infections etc. Some degree of exposure to these stimuli is inevitable in our daily lives, and our body’s natural defense can fight those harmful elements to some extent on its own.
Inflammation can be acute (short term) or chronic (long term). Acute inflammation is the body’s first aggressive reaction to extrinsic damage from which the body recovers in hours to days, for example insect bite, abrasions, hives etc. But chronic inflammation happens when the body’s defenses are continuously exposed to harmful stimuli, which renders the body and its defenses weak. Examples of chronic inflammation include tuberculosis, cancer, arthritis, dermatitis, inflammatory bowel diseases.
Sometimes the body’s defense starts working against its own tissues, which leads to a number of diseases widely known as ‘auto immune diseases’. Also it is postulated that inflammation is involved in the ultimate process of aging as well. One wonders if somehow you could conquer aging, what a miracle would that be.
Nature has given us some wonderful anti inflammatory foods and can be used to defy age and also to help fight against autoimmune and chronic inflammatory disorders.
