Our Top 4 Foods to Avoid
Some say, inflammation is the root of all disease. Many of the chronic health conditions we deal with in daily life including cancer, arthritis, diabetes and obesity are linked to inflammation. As a chiropractor, I know that an injured spine usually shows signs of inflammation, swelling, nerve pressure and interference.
When it comes to your food, inflammation can often be an unwanted side effect. What we do know is that it can cause quite a disruption in the body. There are many surprising foods that cause inflammation and should be avoided at all cost. Here are just a few.
- Frozen yoghurt is a food that causes inflammation in your body. This is due to high sugar content and diary. The top two proven causes of inflammation are sugar and diary.
- Barley and rye contribute to a spike in blood sugar which may cause mood swings, irritability and inflammation. Of course if you suffer from coeliac disease or gluten sensitivity its best to avoid these all together.
- Processed and pre-packaged seasoning and spices contain artificial colours which contribute to inflammation and hormone disruption. A healthier alternative is to make your own seasoning and spice mixtures from actual spices and natural ingredients.
- Did you know agave/agave nectar contributes to inflammation? It’s a processed sugar that should be avoided.
