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 nutrition experts share guidance on 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.
