Healthy Eating Tips to Ease Chronic Inflammation

Chronic inflammation — a condition where the body’s immune system turns on itself — is associated with osteoarthritis, some autoimmune diseases, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Johns Hopkins nutritionist Lynda McIntyre shares foods to eat and avoid to ease this condition.

Eating certain foods — and avoiding others — may help ease chronic inflammation. Avoid foods that tend to increase inflammation: saturated fats, highly processed foods, refined sugar and refined flower. Eat foods that help fight inflammation: fiber, certain spices, healthy fats and Omega-3s, fruits and vegetables, green tea, dark chocolate and red wine.
