How to Leave the Inflammation Nation

Simple Tips to Eliminate Bad Health and Turn Down the Flame! 

We’re a nation full of people struggling with health issues and way too many of these health problems have a foundation in inflammation. So what can you do? Real simple. “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” says the Chinese philosopher Laozi. Take that single step today. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Know Your 6’s and 3’s and Omega 5e’s – Our inflammation nation is that way because we’re out of balance. Too many omega-6 fats found in fast foods and not enough inflammation soothing omega-3 fats found in salmon, tuna, walnuts, flax seeds, and olive oil have caused our pain to rise and increased size. If you’ve never heard of Omega 5e by AlphaFlex, then do your homework. It’s a powerful essential oil, proven to reduce the discomfort associated with inflammation. It’s not a hard decision to cut back or cut out fast food and it’s actually quite enjoyable to add more fresh foods and fish to your diet.

You Go for Yoga – Plenty of studies have proven that yoga isn’t just for the spiritually enlightened. It’s a proven way to reduce stress and help end the inflammation mess. You can take a class, you buy a video or get a free one from the library but the sooner you start fetchin’ some stretchin’ the sooner you will give your body a fighting chance to lower inflammation.

Get the Massage Barrage – We won’t have to work hard to convince you that a deep tissue massage is going to feel great but you might not know it is also another way to help reduce inflammation. It doesn’t get any easier than this! Time for a little inflammation deflation? Get on the table.

Turn on the Green Machine – Make fresh veggies a part of your life. The fresher, the better, the greener the better. Again, this isn’t rocket science; it’s about making a choice, making a decision, and making a commitment to making choices that rob the fuel from the inflammation nation.

Choose to Snooze – You’re going to love this one! Sleep more, suffer less! There’s ample research that proves sleep is good for you in many ways. Less than six hours of sleep a night increases the inflammatory markers such as interleukin-6, CRP, and fibrinogen. Shut off the tube, log off Facebook but do what you have to do in order to increase your sleep time. What, non-productive time can you give up this week to give yourself a little extra shuteye?

Get Moving – There’s no big secret here, beyond, continuity. A continuous exercise program is so important to every aspect of your health. Inflammation takes a vacation when you’re on a brisk walk. Pain leaves the brain when you’re on a soothing swim. No matter what you do, make a commitment to a level of exercise you can sustain. Three times a week, five times a week, whatever you can do is better than doing nothing. We totally understand that when you hurt, the last thing you might want to do is get up and move but in most cases, you’ll feel better doing something over nothing. Always check with the doc first but we think she’ll agree.
