Eat To Help Health!




NJ veggies, Best in World!


If you suffer from arthritis or fibromyalgia a new look at your diet might be in order says Andrew Weil, M.D. Inflammation can cause not only severe pain but heart disease as well and foods you eat might be causing inflammation in your body, including the brain!
The diet is all about eliminating foods that cause inflammation that destroys joints and tissue.



The author recommends:
NO REFINED, PROCESSED OR MANUFACTURED
FOODS
These contain omega-6 fatty acids &
high-fructose corn syrup which you do not want.
Secondly you must:
INCREASE OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS
Eat more fish and add a fish oil
supplement.
Next :
REDUCE YOUR GLYCEMIC LOAD
Blood sugar spikes increase inflammation.

ALSO YOU MUST:
REDUCE MEAT, INCREASE FRUITS & VEGETABLES

Pass the veggies please
