First, lets talk about the two types of inflammations (acute and chronic)

Acute inflammation

We are most familiar with acute inflammation. This is the redness, warmth, swelling, and pain around tissues and joints that occurs in response to an injury, like when you cut yourself. When that happens chemicals from your body’s white blood cells enter your blood or tissues to protect your body from invaders. This raises the blood flow to the area of injury or infection and it starts the healing process.


Symptoms of acute inflammation

  • Flushed skin at the site of the injury
  • Pain or tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Heat


Chronic inflammation

When it comes to chronic inflammation your body continues sending inflammatory cells even when there is no outside danger. For example, in rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory cells and substances attack joint tissues leading to an inflammation that comes and goes and can cause severe damage to joints with pain and deformities

How can I prevent inflammation?

The best way of avoiding inflammation, in the long run, is a low carb diet, medium to high in healthy fats such omega3, and cutting out sugar completely because this is the number one agent to cause inflammation. Make sure that the meat you buy is grass-fed and organic. Prepare your meals and supplements with the list above to reduce inflammation and train at the gym at least 3 times per week. Also, do intermittent fasting at least 5 times per week and try to fast 24h once per month because this will help the body to get alkalized and fight off inflammation even faster.
