Causes of Inflammation
Did you know that headaches, anxiety, bloating, constipation or inability to lose weight stem from inflammation? And what we eat is a direct cause of if we do or don’t have inflammation. There are a lot of things that influence inflammation-including stress, sleep, overexercise, under eating, toxins and so much more.
There are so many foods that can lead to inflammation, so the first step is to know what foods cause it and why.
SUGAR feeds bad bacteria in our gut and can lead to leaky gut along with other health problems. Those random sugar cravings are an easy way for you to know that bad bacteria may be overpowering your gut and ruling your brain to eat sugar. Once you balance out the gut bacteria your cravings will go away.
VEGETABLE OILS: I have talked about these before but they are in everything!! These include Vegetable oils, Canola, Safflower, Soybean, Peanut, Corn, Cottonseed, Grapeseed, Sunflower and all those fake butters out there! These oils are highly inflammatory, unstable and create a ton of inflammation in the body. This is where its so important to read the labels on things such as salad dressings. A healthier option would be to use coconut or avocado oils or grass fed butter.
GLUTEN can be an issue even if you don’t have Celiac’s or a response when eating it. I don’t think anyone should be eating it. Most wheat is heavily processed even whole wheat and far from its natural form. Everyone I know that has given up gluten has lost weight- and that was not fat it was inflammation!😬
DAIRY is pasteurized/heated at high temps and stripped of beneficial bacteria, plus most cows are full of artificial hormones and antibiotics which cause inflammation due to the residual that gets into the milk along with all the other fluids of the cows- that was enough for me to quit!
FARM RAISED SALMON are fed a high fat processed diet to promote growth, which leads to high levels of omega-6
PROCESSED FOODS usually have the ingredients listed above, but if you must have these foods read the labels some are better than others!
