“We constantly fight with body inflammation because it seems to affect us everywhere. We become inflamed when we eat processed foods, when we exceed sugar, when our food is full of flour and refined oils. However, bad nutrition is not the only factor that produces inflammation; sedentary lifestyle, excessive exercise, emotional and physical stress, excessive consumption of medicines and the use of body products containing harmful ingredients are also all causes of body inflammation.
Here are 4 tips to reduce inflammation with the goal of improving your overall health:
- Reduce your fast carbs by 80%. What are these? They are carbohydrates that do not contain fiber: flours, refined sugar, pastries, sweets, natural sweeteners. They cause a rapid rise in your insulin levels. The ideal is to maintain blood sugar levels in a more balanced way; we do not want a roller coaster as that imbalance produces inflammation.
- Increase your slow carbohydrate intake. What are these? They are carbohydrates that contain fiber, vitamins and minerals. Example: fruits, sweet vegetables, ancestral grains and legumes. They are low-glycemic and don’t spike your blood sugar or insulin.
- Be active. You don’t have to be slugging it out in the gym every day for hours on end; but try to make sure you are moving for at least 20-40 minutes a day to help reduce inflammation. I recommend a balance between cardio, strength and stretching throughout your week to help protect your body from overworking itself.
- Choose toxic free body products. It has been proven over and over in different studies that the toxic ingredients in products we use every day are harmful to our skin. And yes, they promote body inflammation as they act as hormones in the body, more specifically as estrogens, and excess estrogen produces hormonal imbalance. That is why I use all Ere Perez products, I feel that my skin is taken care of and I am free of toxins.”
