Anti inflammatory diet for chronic inflammation, chronic pain and arthritis
In this video, Doctor Andrea Furlan explains that there is a relationship between what we eat and pain. Chronic inflammation may lead to chronic pain, and there are nutrients in our Western diet that predispose to more inflammation. People with autoimmune diseases are prone to more inflammation because their immune system is attacking their own cells using inflammation. We don’t know if fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disease or not, but people with fibromyalgia have more inflammatory markers than people without fibromyalgia.
Changing their diet has a great impact on chronic inflammation. Doctor Furlan explains strategies to change eating habits and how to incorporate an anti-inflammatory diet:
