Dr. John’s Top 10 Anti Inflammatory foods!

Inflammation is not a bad thing, when we are sick or have an injury.  But, a long-term inflammation process in the body is what causes the damage.  It produces autoimmune problems, were your body is attacking itself and leads to problems like:  high blood pressure, diabetes, celiac disease, asthma, arthritis, heart disease, GERD, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema and the list goes on and on.  A lot of these diseases all have one thing in common: inflammation.  I talk to my patients about an anti inflammatory diet and foods all the time.  I been asked so many times, Changing the way you eat can make you feel better.  But most importantly you will heal faster.  Your diet should consist of fresh fruits and vegetables, low red meat and a lot of omega 3’s.  To start here is my list of my top 10 anti-inflammatory foods. 

1. Ginger– nature’s way of breaking down toxins in organs

2. Pineapple– bromelain, enzyme, stops blood plates for sticking together
