What Can We Do?

Especially in recent years, the balanced, comprehensive plant-based diet (one that excludes animal products) is evidenced to be an extremely effective way to reduce and even eliminate chronic inflammation.

You Are What You Eat

Even if you’re not ready to make a full transition to a plant-based diet, reducing foods that cause inflammation is a great way to start. These include added sugars, trans and saturated fats, red and processed meats, refined carbs, and oils high in omega-6.
