The best anti-inflammatory supplements help reduce your inflammation naturally. The first thing to determine is the cause of your inflammation. Acute inflammation is brought about when the body is damaged, often caused by an injury, and it is the body's natural defense.
However, with chronic inflammation we have a serious situation. Usually this is caused by an accumulation of toxins in the body. Why did these toxins manage to accumulate?
You must look at 3 things:
Often there are changes to be made in the diet. Sometimes inflammation can be caused by an intolerance to certain foods, especially dairy.
Follow an anti-inflammatory diet to reduce your inflammation.
It is essential to determine the exact cause of your inflammation and make the changes you need to alleviate your symptoms permanently.
An herbal cleanse is a good place to start,
followed by a detox to eliminate toxins from the body.
Omega 3 helps to produce prostaglandins which reduce inflammation.
Probiotics are important to build up healthy bacteria in the intestine.
Digestive enzymes ensure that food is properly digested. This is one of the most important anti-inflammatory supplements to take. Often with chronic inflammation proteins are not being properly digested and this causes an accumulation of waste in the blood.
Anti-oxidants help protect the cell membranes from free radicals and other chemical substances.
A multi vitamin containing Folic acid and Vitamins B, C, D and E.
Anti-inflammatory herbs and plants:
If the body is overly acidic, reduce acidity with
Chlorophyll and/or Aloe Vera juice
As always, most of these supplements are helping you cure yourself rather than putting a band-aid on the situation. A Naturopath can help you determine the right ones for you. Making the necessary changes you need to in your diet and lifestyle will help you achieve a pain-free, healthy body.
