The Leading Cause Of Disease Is...

A recent article by TIME magazine recently revealed that the root cause of almost ALL diseases is actually inflammation in your body.

You read that right.

The same thing your body uses to protect you is actually hurting you at the same time.

How does that make any sense?

Inflammation starts out as a good thing. If you stub your toe or get an infection it allows your body to stop and remove the invaders in their tracks. Usually, it’ll go away on its own so your body can then heal itself.

The problem happens when inflammation does NOT shut down on its own.

That’s what doctors call “chronic inflammation”.

Chronic inflammation can make the body attack itself. It can cause damage to coronary arteries, nerve cells, and make cells duplicate uncontrollably.

Said another way, chronic inflammation is directly linked to heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s, and even cancer.

And it’s not just TIME magazine that thinks so. Dr. Robert Shmerling, clinical chief at Harvard Medical, recently linked chronic inflammation to rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, and Alzheimer’s.

It’s pretty clear that this is a major problem that cannot be ignored, especially if you’re getting older.

inflammation has recently been linked to other major diseases. In fact, authors of a 2009 study published in the journal Inflammation Research wrote:

“Chronic inflammation is being shown to be increasingly involved in the onset and development of several pathological disturbances such as arteriosclerosis, obesity, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases and even cancer." 1

Once you better understand what inflammation is … how it’s causing disease inside your body … and the many natural solutions available to stop its damaging effects —

You will choose to completely turn your health around!

In fact, in a fairly short amount of time, you could start to experience better sleep…less stomach issues…more energy and stamina…less muscle and joint pain…a drop in weight…lower stress levels…and much, much more!

Yet, if you still suffer from heart disease or any number of serious health threats—or worry about an impending diagnosis—consider this your fair warning. It’s possible…

Chronic inflammation could be sending you to an early grave!

All told, chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States!2-9 And hundreds of studies and scientific reviews now prove it.

But the health dangers of inflammation don’t stop there. The evidence suggests chronic inflammation may trigger or worsen autoimmune diseases, autism, neuropathy, celiac disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, food allergies, and more!10-16.

Cherries and blueberries contain antioxidants, which may help to ease inflammation.

Good choices for a person following an anti-inflammatory diet include the following:

  • dark leafy greens, including kale and spinach

  • blueberries, blackberries, and cherries

  • dark red grapes

  • nutrition-dense vegetables, such as broccoli and cauliflower

  • beans and lentils

  • green tea

  • red wine, in moderation

  • avocado and coconut

  • olives

  • extra virgin olive oil

  • walnuts, pistachios, pine nuts, and almonds

  • cold water fish, including salmon and sardines

  • turmeric and cinnamon

  • dark chocolate

  • spices and herbs

Foods to avoid

The main foods that people following an anti-inflammatory diet should avoid include:

  • processed meats

  • sugary drinks

  • trans fats, found in fried foods

  • white bread

  • white pasta

  • gluten

  • soybean oil and vegetable oil

  • processed snack foods, such as chips and crackers

  • desserts, such as cookies, candy, and ice cream

  • excess alcohol

  • too many carbohydrates

Some people find that foods in the nightshades family, such as tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, and potatoes, can trigger flares in some inflammatory diseases. There is limited evidence of this, but a person can try cutting nightshades from the diet for 2–3 weeks to see if their symptoms improve.

There is some evidence that suggests a high-carbohydrate diet, even when the carbs are healthful, may promote inflammation. Because of this, many people on an anti-inflammatory diet choose to reduce their carbohydrate intake.
