How To Combat Inflammation

Today we’re with Bridget Kilpatrick, and she’s here to talk to us about how to combat inflammation. We’ll be talking about what inflammation is, what causes it, and how you can deal with it. Making good choices helps us to live a long, healthy life.

Inflammation alone is the leading cause of death and disease. Diet is one thing that can help with prevention. Everyone’s body is different, and everyone’s body responds to food differently. It’s all about reflecting on what works (and doesn’t work) for you, and basing your diet around what you enjoy but also can tolerate.

Once you start eliminating the foods that don’t work for you, you’ll notice a huge difference. This could mean better energy, more stable moods, healthier skin, less bloating, and more. It can also help with another cause of inflammation, which is stress. Another way to address and manage stress is exercise, which can help take you out of that fight-or-flight mode.

Meditation or prayer is another practice that can help reduce stress (and therefore inflammation), and it also helps set you up for success in your day. It’s a daily commitment, but the difference on the days that you practice can be so profound that it almost becomes addictive. Make time for this practice every day and feel the difference for yourself.

We need to pay attention to our diet, our stress, and our environment if we want to help reduce inflammation. In large part, it comes down to how we treat our bodies. You have to be ready to choose wisely and put your effort into taking action so you can feel better.

And the mainstream wellness advice I was following was not for women my age but for women years younger. I also realized very quickly that there is no one formula that works for all women. We are all different and need a customized approach. This aha moment was the first step to my transformation…
