Many of the things that we now need to consider for optimal health are new because our environment has changed. Case in point: the Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio.
One of the cornerstones of an anti-inflammatory diet is eating the right fats and using them properly. Here’s a guide on how to use fats and oils for optimal health.
Fat isn’t the bad guy. In fact, incorporating more fat into your diet may help alleviate pain, help you shed weight, keep your hormones balanced, and keep you full and happy.
Inflammation is a predecessor to many degenerative diseases, including heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, autoimmunity (including Hashimoto’s), and diabetes.
Hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function, is a silent epidemic. And in most cases, hypothyroidism isn’t rooted in a thyroid problem in the first place. It’s rooted in an immune system gone awry (Hashimoto’s). Making dietary changes is your first line of defense.
We’ve all heard the idiom, “You are what you eat.” You also feel what you eat. We know that the right foods help ward off disease and help keep our bodies healthy as we age. Yet many people don’t make the connection in how food can be our most powerful defense in alleviating moodiness, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and stress, and improving outlook and attitude.
