When I had my back injury inflammation was a big thing due to the trauma in my back, therefore, I looked at Natural remedies for this.  I did not want to take muscle relaxants and be on Ibuprofen forever.   One thing I found really worked and I always have some on hand in case of flare-ups, is a product called Wobenzym.   Before adding any supplements of any kind please check with your medical practitioner for any contra indications.Natural Remedies for Inflammation

It is totally natural and is good for joints if you have problems in that area also.   When I was in so much pain I really got the benefits on Wobenzym, a friend of mine who suffered from bad Sciatica, referred this to me.

 


So in conclusion, if you want to stay healthy and reduce your risk of disease you want to incorporate anti-inflammatory products into your everyday life.  Obviously, there are exercise, meditation and other modalities which can always help too.  Less stress and more calm in your life will also aid in your everyday health.


I hope I may have answered some myths about your health and inflammation, please leave me some comments and your experience.   Please share with others so they may benefit.

    It is very important, what we put into our bodies. Most of us have cronical inflammations without even knowing it. Here in Italy it seems to be natural to eat a lot of the foods you are mentioning, tomatoes, fat fish, garlic, green vegetables and OLIVE oil.
    They also use a lot of hot peppers and believe it is good for digestion – and probably for inflammation?
    I love ginger and put it almost everywhere, as well as curry/turmeric.

      Italians seem to have a healthier lifestyle than the Americans.

        Very much so!
        One of the reasons why I wouldn’t like to live in America is the food. Even in Whole Foods veggies and fruit have no taste whatsoever….

    Hi Helen …its a good read however not all foodswill be appropriate for everyone . Tomatoes for instance are on the avoid list for arthritis sufferers and many people could be allergic and not even know it . I’m technically allergicand used to eat them fresh and as a sauce and I do miss it! However now I get a terrible reaction since I eliminated it if I have even a tspn of sauce the next day I have alot of pain and feel very sick. As a trained Traditional Chineae Physician we learn to recommend foods for function and action according to their nature.. temperature or flavor which directs how they affect the body (action).How to cook the food also affects its action and function . Chineae Diet Therapy is very anazing! Cheers

      Thank you for your comments I totally agree with you, my blood type cannot take tomatoes either. Usually I put in all my posts to make sure you know what is good for your body and experiment. I did not do this in the post however, so I will go back and amend it. Thank you again. Chinese Medicine is amazing.

    Inflammation is a horrible problem and many things do cause it to be even worse. I agree a that consuming certain beverages, etc can add to the pain. I find most doctors find a reason to prescribe pain pills that only create other problems instead of changing diets. Great site will definitely bookmark it. Thanks for the info, Ron

    Thank you so much for a great read! I suffer from Chron’s Disease, and have been dealing with it for over 15 years. I always knew there were better remedies out there for the symptoms but never really looked deep into the subject.
    Is there a specific natural product that you could recommend to someone that has Chron’s? I really do enjoy tea but I find that the dark teas sometimes reek havoc on my digestive system. Thanks in advance and great post!

      Thank you glad you enjoyed it. I would definitely stick to the foods that do not cause inflammation, keep a list of what you eat and drink and when you have a flare up you can notice what may have caused it and eliminate that from your diet. I will look into natural remedies that may help you and get back to you on that.

    Hi Helen, I try to eat healthy as much as possible and never really thought about the anti-inflammatory benefits of food. I usually thought about benefits such as lowering blood pressure, repairing muscle tissue, etc.

    Many of the foods you mentioned I like to eat so it makes me feel even better knowing their anti-inflammatory effects. Thanks for educating me on this great information!

    Hi Helen, I was wondering if there’s any natural product to help with my problem. I have a beginning of arthrosis and I wonder if there is anything I can do to stop or at least prevent the progression. I heard that inflammation causes the pain but is there anything I can do to stop arthrosis itself? Thanks for any suggestions!
