Fight Fire with Food

Fight Fire with Food

Chronic inflammation causes no outward symptoms such as swelling or pain.
Instead, it creates an insidious slow burn that can set the stage for heart disease and
other health disasters. The good news is that watching what you eat and adopting
an anti-inflammatory supplementation program may help cool this hidden flame—
before it seriously singes your well-being.

November 2008

When Shauna first showed up at her practitioner’s office, she was in sorry shape: 55 pounds overweight, exhausted, depressed. Her troubles had begun six years earlier, when she starting taking artificial hormones to fight menopausal hot flashes and wound up on blood pressure medication to deal with the hormone’s side effects.

Her practitioner ordered blood tests and was shocked by the results for an inflammation marker called C-reactive protein (CRP). Anything over 3.0 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) would be considered high—and Shauna’s level was 22.0. Meta­bolically, Shauna was on fire.

Two years later, Shauna’s blood pressure is normal and her CRP is 1.8 mg/dL. She’s managed to lose those 55 extra pounds. What’s more, “she looks ten years younger,” says Mark Hyman, MD, Shauna’s practitioner and the author of UltraMetabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss (Atria Books). “The importance of finding the source of, and treating, inflammation cannot be overstated.”

Finding inflammation may not be easy, since low levels may produce no symptoms. Or, as in Shauna’s case, a person may feel miserable—and never suspect inflammation as a possible culprit.

Turn an ankle and your immune system creates pain, heat and swelling to keep you from moving it. This reaction, called acute inflammation, shuts itself off after the crisis passes. The problem starts when the immune system is always irritated, like someone swatting repeatedly at a persistent mosqu­ito. This results in a similar reaction that causes low-level chronic inflammation, which affects the entire body.

One cause of chronic inflammation can be found in what’s called toxic overload. “We’re so bombarded with toxins from an early age—heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides,” says Jessica Black, ND, co-founder of A Family Healing Center in Portland, Oregon and author of The Anti-Inflammation Diet and Recipe Book (Hunter House). “It sets off an imbalance in the immune system.”

Inflammation and Arthritis

While low-level inflammation often creates no symptoms, the same cannot be said of osteoarthritis (OA), which is present in just about everyone over age 60. Joint inflammation causes cartilage damage that in turn may lead to pain and stiffness, especially in the morning—think of the “morning shuffle” that can make getting out of bed an adventure. The damage accumulates as time goes on, which can result in diminished range of motion, swelling and even deformity.

Adopting an anti-inflammatory diet is the first ...
