Dear {Name (First):29.3},  your score is: {results:24} You are on the right path*.

However, some of your good choices are being negated by choices that are not supporting your efforts to keep inflammation to a minimum. The highest score in this quiz is 20 and the lowest is -20. Let us suggest that you:

Consider increasing more of the following:

  • Add more of the foods that have anti-inflammatory properties. Such as fish, sardines, salmon. Keep tuna to a minimum as well as other large fish to limit mercury intake.
  • Consider adding more olive oil to your salads. Include avocado and healthy nuts such as almonds, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts and pecans. These are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and will certainly help in bringing inflammation down.
  • Add some grains to your nutrition. Do keep in mind that some grains contain phytic acid which can inhibit the absorption of minerals like iron, zinc, etc. So if you take mineral supplements try not to take them when you eat grains.
  • Put more leafy green vegetables in your plate such as cauliflower, cabbage, kale, garden cress, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, mustard plant, etc. These are rich in nutrients and also provide substances needed for proper detoxification.
  • And don’t forget carrots, peas, squash, sweet potatoes, and fiber

You will continue to improve by not consuming:

  • Soda drinks including diet drinks. Also skip those Coffee Frappuccinos from Starbucks and other Coffee franchises. Nothing but sugar and artificial flavoring and coloring.
  • If you drink alcohol, cut back. It is high in sugar and the liver has to work harder to get rid of it.
  • Limit fried foods. In fact, just avoid them. They are inflammatory.
  • All process foods are to be avoided as much as possible. If it comes in a can or a box, most likely it is processed.

Keep up or include the following:

  • Exercise is one of the best way to bring inflammation down. Of course, with moderation, since excessive exercise can lead to inflammation. . Walking is perhaps one of the best exercises you can do. Hippocrates, the “Father of Western Medicine” , said that “walking was man’s best medicine”. Indeed it is.
  • Visit a massage therapist on occasion. Or an acupuncturist. Both of these practitioner can help move the body’s energy and lower inflammation through relaxation.
  • Practice deep breathing exercises. They stimulate relaxation.
