Interview with Julie Daniluk, author of the book Meals That Heal Inflammation: Embrace Healthy Living and Eliminate Pain, One Meal at at Time
Julie Daniluk, author of the book Meals That Heal Inflammation...
It is the healing response it’s only a problem when it becomes chronic and when it’s chronic that’s when we really see issues like arthritis and heart disease and cancer. And the foods we eat can make a major difference as to whether we become inflamed or whether we really live a long healthy life.
Although people are all a little different there are some foods that seem to help everyone reduce and control inflammation.
And the big ones would have be seafood is very healing and there’s a great study published in the American society for nutrition that really shows how anti-inflammatory it is. Turmeric and ginger have an incredible ability to switch off arachidonic acid which is a major cause of inflammation in the body. And I really think even garlic and onions have powerful anti-inflammatory affect.
Avocado is beneficial and so is broccoli.
Broccoli is loaded with this really cool nutrient called indole 3 carbinol and broccolis in this big family – they all are healing. Indole 3 carbinol is contained in things like kale and cauliflower and cabbage this big family of plants really reduces inflammation.
