Inflammation is the body’s natural immune response to injury, infection, or other foreign substances. When the immune system detects something that’s out of place in your body, it creates antibodies to help protect you against any harmful invaders.
However, when the immune system overreacts and starts attacking healthy tissues instead of foreign cells, this is referred to as inflammation. If left unchecked, inflammation can lead to serious health conditions like heart disease, arthritis, cancer and more.
Thankfully, there are a few ways you can help keep inflammation at bay. One of the most important things you can do to fight inflammation is to eat a healthy diet. The types of foods you eat can have a big impact on how your body handles inflammation. For example, eating too many refined carbohydrates like white bread and pastries can lead to high blood sugar levels, which can contribute to insulin resistance and inflammation.
On the other hand, eating plenty of vegetables and whole grains can help keep blood sugar stable and can also help protect against heart disease and certain cancers. Along with a healthy diet, getting enough rest is another way you can reduce your risk of inflammation. Getting enough rest helps the body repair itself so it’s less likely to suffer from chronic stress or fatigue.
