What can I do to avoid chronic inflammation?

It may be useful to think of foods or lifestyle decisions as being either broadly anti-inflammatory or pro-inflammatory, and strive to avoid the scales tilting too far over onto the pro-inflammatory side.

Diet, exercise, weight, alcohol, smoking, sleep, stress, and exposure to toxins and pollutants all play a part.

As an example, oily fish, olive oil, blueberries, 7-8 hours sleep a night and well-managed stress levels clearly sit on the anti-inflammatory side of the ledger.

Conversely, being overweight, sugary foods, takeaways, smoking a pack a day, 4 hours sleep a night and too much wine should be seen as pro-inflammatory stressors.

You may wish to consider regularly taking a high quality nutraceutical such as LifeGuard Essentials as a daily anti-inflammatory boost.
