Inflammation is the foundation of health and the wellbeing of our cells, but unless you know how to manage it — it could eventually kill you. Conditions such as hay fever, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, bursitis, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, Parkinson’s, osteoporosis, and even depression have been linked to inflammation.
It is important to have well-controlled inflammation and keep it regulated so that it switches on when you need it and switches off when you don’t need it anymore. A few ways to regulate inflammation are to:

  • Eat healthier fats and adhere to an anti-inflammatory diet
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Reduce stress
