Inflammation is the cause of pain. Whether you’ve experienced muscle pain, gout, tendonitis or even arthritis – when inflammation starts, you’d do just about anything to make it stop. According to the Ministry of Health, arthritis is the single greatest cause of disability in New Zealand, with more than half a million people affected at some point during their lifetime. That’s a scary statistic. So what if you could help protect your body simply by the food you put in it? We’ve looked into it here…
To restore and maintain your body’s pH balance, it’s recommended that you eat a diet containing 60 to 80 percent of alkalising foods. Below is a list of some foods that really help to create an alkaline environment for your tissues, joints and blood.
Anti-Inflammatory (Alkaline) Foods:
On the other side of the pH scale is the list below. These are foods that can increase the body’s inflammation because they are acidic in nature; therefore they cause the body to become more acidic too. With that said, the key to health is balance so when you do eat something from the acidic list, try to offset it by eating something from the alkaline list. Everyone is different, so monitor how these acidic foods make you feel after eating them. If you start feeling achy, tired, moody or you experience cravings – then it might be worth cutting them out completely.
Inflammatory (Acidic) Foods:
The effects of inflammation are never fun, so protect yourself where you can. By exercising a little more, awareness around what you eat and what kind of environment you’re creating inside your body, you can put up some pretty solid barriers against muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, chronic fatigue and a range of other unpleasant ailments.
