Inflammation is an important physiological process, but prolonged inflammation can indicate health problems, and it can negatively affect your quality of life. The are several things you can do to reduce inflammation in the body, including PEMF therapy.
What is inflammation?
Inflammation happens because your body identifies a threat. Your immune system tries to combat harmful stimuli, and inflammation is one of the ways your body tries to protect itself.
Different things cause inflammation. Acute inflammation may result from infection, injury or illness. Chronic inflammation may be caused by chronic conditions such as arthritis, or from an auto-immune disorder.
Inflammation isn’t always a bad thing. It’s actually a part of the body’s healing process. Injured areas swell or become inflamed because your body wants to protect that area.
However, inflammation becomes a problem when it lasts longer than it should, or because there is unnecessary inflammation.
Inflammation can cause discomfort, irritation, pain, swelling, and redness. It can limit mobility and reduce range of motion. It can also cause disability and decrease a person’s quality of life.
So how can you reduce inflammation?
Eat an anti-inflammatory diet
The foods you eat, and the foods that you don’t eat, can influence inflammation in the body.
Some foods have been linked with increased inflammation. Reduce or cut out:
- fried foods
- highly processed foods
- refined carbohydrates, such as white flour
- soda and sweet beverages
- foods using lard or margarine
- highly processed meats like breakfast sausage, bacon, and hotdogs
Some foods have anti-inflammatory properties:
- olive oil
- fish with omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon and tuna
- spices such as cinnamon, rosemary, ginger, garlic, and turmeric
Staying active can help you maintain a healthy weight, which can help you manage inflammation. People who are overweight or obese tend to have more inflammation than those at a healthy weight.
Stress, depression, and anxiety have been shown to increase inflammation in the body. Stress management techniques can help reduce stress. Set aside time for yourself each day to improve your mood, relax, and manage stress.
