Poor nutrition is a major cause of chronic inflammation, stated in numerous recent studies. In particular, it’s increasingly apparent that many conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and rheumatism are more closely related to inflammation than it was discussed only a few years ago. A major cause of inflammatory processes in the body is a poor diet or malnutrition. A diet rich in ‘bad’ fats such as saturated fats and trans fats and high in simple sugars (basically the average western diet) is increasingly shown to promote chronic inflammation. This is in direct contrast to fiber, antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables, healthy fats in fish and nuts plus beneficial oils, such as olive oil, which all have a natural anti-inflammatory effect. These recommendations correlate with Metabolic Balance and why reducing inflammation is one of the key benefits experienced by many of our clients.
