WHAT DO WE DO WITH THIS INFORMATION?
Inflammation is the the body’s way of signalling the immune system to heal and repair damaged tissue.  Short term inflammation in response to an infection or injury is a critical human function.  Long term, or chronic, inflammation due to diet is harmful and can lead to other diseases.

We try to bring a very realistic and practical approach to health and wellness.  There are lots of foods from the “inflammatory” list that are just outright delicious.  We don’t cut anything out completely but having the KNOWLEDGE of what is on both these lists helps us minimize our amounts of inflammatory foods and increase our daily intake of anti-inflammatory foods.  These are decisions that literally feel good!
