What do arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, colitis, dermatitis have in common? The all end in “itis,” which means inflammation. In my 28 years of practice and 35 years of studying and learning about alternative health and how food affects our health and our bodies, personally, I believe that the foods we put into our bodies is the number one contributor to inflammation. Every body is different, has different genes and different tolerances for the foods we eat.
I recommend to my patients to eat whole foods, not processed foods. If food is out of a can or box, it is most likely processed in some way. Sugar, processed carbohydrates and hydrogenated fats are some of the biggest culprits when it comes to inflammation. Our bodies need good quality fats like coconut oil, avocados, olive oil to name a few. For myself, when I get more good quality fat and less processed carbohydrates, I feel better and less hungry. For myself, eating too many grains makes my joints achy.
I really like what Mark Hyman, M.D. says about how we should eat.
Acupuncture along with cold laser can certainly help you feel better with whatever “itis” or condition of inflammation you are suffering with, but you must be willing to make dietary changes if you want to get well and stay well.
