How To Heal Inflammation

Our bodies are continually juggling a balancing act with inflammatory chemical assaults, while working hard to keep a delicate equilibrium under control. While some inflammation is beneficial in an acute setting (i.e. a swollen ankle after a sprain is important to stabilize it), chronic inflammation can have a negative impact on our health. Leading scientists are now showing the ties between inflammation to many types of chronic disease facing developed nations in pandemic proportions such as; heart disease, diabetes, auto-immune diseases — to even cancer.

Sources of inflammation are abundant in our environment and the lifestyles many of us live. What we eat, drink, breathe,and think every day affects our biochemistry in countless ways. On top of this, the myriad of microorganisms living in our gastrointestinal system impact us, all of which can heal or harm us with whatever consistent lifestyle choices we choose. The emerging field of Epigenetics is a powerful and exciting field of medicine showing how critical a role our environment plays on our genetics. Dr.’s like Bruce Lipton (author of The Biology of Belief) have proven that stress has the direct ability to change the ways our genes are activated, thus having a huge ability to influence our health. At the very base of our entire health spectrum is how we control inflammatory processes. What we put in, on, and around our body play a major role in how we look, think, and feel. And our diet has a major impact on our health.

To heal inflammation, avoid junk food, sugar and artificial sweeteners, all vegetable oils (use coconut oil and olive oil), heal your gut, and detoxify your body.  De-stress and learn to live from a happy heart. (This is one of my husband’s most popular classes at our retreats.)

    Thank you, Cherie! I have been battling a very painful sciatica for several months. I have your anti-inflammation book and use it regularly for guidance. I eat healthy, stay away from junk food and drugs and take the healthy approach whenever possible. I love the Lord, teach a women’s Bible Study and am probably as stress free as anyone can be (retired, yeah!). I garden and exercise daily, but haven’t been able to discover what is triggering my pain. I have tried acupuncture and chiropractic treatments Just yesterday I noticed your statement that blueberries may be inflammatory in some people. I eat 1/2 c of blueberries every morning with breakfast … so I’ll stay off them for a while and see if they are my trigger. I love ginger and incorporate it in daily meals and juicing. Several months ago I did the parasitic cleanse for the first time i my life. I’m really at a loss here and not getting much help from my MD…

    • Have you seen a chiropractor? There is one in our area that has had very good results with sciatica.

    I have the book on inflammation. I have started juicing and I saw you on supernatural. When you say heal your gut, or you say heal your gut with the anti inflammation drinks?

    • Yes, and with probiotics and pre-biotics that you get from vegetables.

    should alcohol be included in the avoid or eliminate list as well? or is that an individual inflammatory trigger?

    • Alcohol should be avoided. It can be an inflammatory trigger.
