The simple diet that can fight arthritis and Alzheimer's diseas

The latest diet craze is nothing like the usual offerings. You don't have to count calories or even cut your food intake drastically. There's also no promise of instant weight loss, though you probably will become more trim.
What this diet will do is help prevent illnesses such as heart disease, Alzheimer's and possibly cancer, and significantly ease the pain of chronic conditions such as arthritis.
The 'anti-inflammatory' diet is based on the principle that many health problems are linked to chronic inflammation caused by an over-active immune system.

 The theory is that certain foods help calm the immune system.

Those who have jumped on the bandwagon include Barry Sears, creator of the Zone diet, and dermatologist Dr Nicholas Perricone (the Perricone diet).
But what sets this latest trend apart from other dietary fads is the growing number of medical experts who agree there might be much to gain from it.

The idea that chronic inflammation can lead to ill health is well established. It occurs when the immune system begins attacking the body - it's not clear why this happens, but, as a result, the body tissues are damaged. In turn, they release chemicals that cause inflammation.
Because this initially causes no pain, people often don't realise they're suffering from chronic and 'silent' inflammation until years later - when the symptoms of arthritis or other conditions emerge.

Chia citrus cooler

Have you tried chia seeds yet?

Chia seeds have a lot in common with flax. Both have a nutty flavor and are great in baked goods, green smoothies, oatmeal, and more. Chia gets a lot of hype as a superfood – and with good reason! But what makes chia so healthy, and how can you get more chia into your diet?

Chia seeds have even more omega-3 fatty acids than flax meal, and like flax they’re rich in fiber and micronutrients. Unlike flax, though, you don’t need to grind chia seeds to get their nutritional value. Your body can digest whole chia seeds, which means that chia has a longer shelf life, since you can buy the whole seed rather than the ground meal. One ounce of chia seeds (about two tablespoons) contains over 40 percent of the RDA for fiber and 18 percent of your daily calcium needs. This low-glycemic, anti-inflammatory food is a nutritional powerhouse, and it’s delicious to boot!

The Ideal Fruit for Cleansing & Weight Loss

Do you remember how much you enjoyed eating watermelon as a child? I do, and I still love to eat it every summer.
Watermelons are great for hydrating your body in the hot sun. That’s why watermelon is more than just refreshing and tasty. Watermelon is great for cleansing, weight loss and your health. Don’t let its lightness fool you; it’s packed with nutrition.
Watermelon is an inexpensive way to help you cleanse your body and lose weight. A one cup serving of watermelon is only 47 calories. Yes, watermelon is 92 percent water but that other 8 percent is filled with good nutrition and amazing health benefits. Watermelon is recommended by the American Council on Exercise as a good choice of diet food.

Fish oil

Question: Is there research on whether fish oil supplements help ease joint pain?

Answer:  There is considerable research on fish oils and the inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis, as well as some limited early research on fish oils and osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease, said Dr. Sheldon S. Hendler, co-editor of The PDR for Nutritional Supplements.

The fish oils in the studies are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), both omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.

“Daily ingestion of at least three grams of a mixture of EPA and DHA for 12 weeks or longer has been found to reduce morning stiffness and the number of tender joints in those with rheumatoid arthritis,” Dr. Hendler said. Those treated were reported to reduce or discontinue use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, he said.

Anti-inflammatory Diet & Pyramid

It is becoming increasingly clear that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses - including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer's disease. We all know inflammation on the surface of the body as local redness, heat, swelling and pain. It is the cornerstone of the body's healing response, bringing more nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection. But when inflammation persists or serves no purpose, it damages the body and causes illness. Stress, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition, and exposure to toxins (like secondhand tobacco smoke) can all contribute to such chronic inflammation, but dietary choices play a big role as well. Learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process is the best strategy for containing it and reducing long-term disease risks. (Find more details on the mechanics of the inflammation process and the Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid.)

Inflammation is our body’s natural response to injury or stress. If you cut yourself, get an infection or sprain an ankle, acute inflammation is a normal immune system response. However, chronic inflammation occurs when this process goes wrong and starts to affect healthy tissue. This chronic inflammation may play an important role in aging and other illness such as heart disease, arthritis, bone health and allergies.

Poor diet is one of the major contributors to chronic inflammation so incorporating anti-inflammatory foods into your diet is essential.
