There are simple, everyday things we can easily do that can dramatically minimize if not expunge inflammation from our body once and for all. The natural strategies include sleep, good nutrition, Anti-Oxidants, cutting out the sugar and of course exercise.
So, let’s begin with one of my favorites and number 1 on my list of real life strategies to get rid of inflammation naturally is Sleep! Sleep is a great real life strategy to wipe out inflammation naturally.
A good night’s sleep has become a luxury to most of us these days. Relaxation is so hard to come by as well. We focus on getting a lot of things done instead of taking the time to give ourselves some rest. So we stress a lot and stress can cause a lot of bad stuff to happen to our body. Sleep helps lessen the inflammatory stress hormones in our body therefore lessening inflammation.
After getting that long awaited 8-hour heavenly sleep, fuel
your day with good nutrition.
Good Nutrition is number 2 on the list of 5 real life strategies everyone should employ and is also a great natural way to get rid of inflammation.
This means cutting down (or better yet, cutting off) on fast and processed foods. These foods are laden with inflammation-causing ingredients. These can be harmful chemicals, trans-fats, or preservatives. When you do your grocery shopping, search for healthy food shops in your area and try them out. Trust me, if you go with healthy foods, you will feel the difference in as short as a week’s time.
