Chiropractor in Tustin Provides A Combo
One Two Punch at Inflammation

In this series we have covered some tips to handle inflammatory pains.  Tools like Rock Tape or T-Relief as well as RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) can be helpful, that’s for sure.

Another helpful action has to do with taking some super supplements that can have a powerful anti-inflammatory punch.

Before our top Tustin CA chiropractor tells you more about these, there are a few inflammatory ideas you need to know.

First off, inflammation is a normal and healthy process in our body.  It’s how repair starts when there is injury.  It’s how the body fights off invaders and infection.

Unfortunately, a good thing like inflammation can get out of control like a wild fire. 

You could be pouring ‘gasoline’ on that inflammatory fire.  How?  By eating foods known to cause more inflammation in the body.

Chiropractor in Tustin Provides A List of Foods Known to Cause Inflammation In Your Body

Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Excessive Alcohol, Trans Fats, Refined Carbs (white flour products, etc…)

One can eat in a way to increase inflammation or decrease it.  If you have an injury or chronic pain that you want to get rid of, consider changing your diet.

In fact, at Bunch Chiropractic, I think it would be foolish to take supplements to get inflammation under control while eating a diet high in sugar, or drinking lots of alcohol.  Or consuming any of the other items that are flaring up inflammation.

Diet adjusted, now consider these inflammatory busting foods that you can take in supplement form.

First is Curcumin.  You may have heard of Tumeric for anti-inflammation. Tumeric is a deep yellow spice used commonly in Indian cooking. It is the curcumin in turmeric that is the active substance.

Another powerful substance is Resveratrol, found in many foods like red wine, chocolate and blueberries.

These substances have been studied for some time now and have been found to be very powerful in reducing inflammation besides other health benefits.

In fact, when taken together they have a synergistic effect and are more powerful than when taken separately.

The amounts needed to cause a good effect are much more than we can easily eat through food alone.  It takes 41 glasses of red wine to amount to 20 mg of resveratrol!

Many take a powdered supplemental form that doesn’t get digested well. Bunch Chiropractic in Tustin explains that this isn’t ideal.

Curcumin and Resveratrol can be taken in an emulsified form for optimum absorption.  This is where they are mixed with oil for ideal digestion.

It has to get absorbed before it can cause its anti-inflammatory effects.

Besides people with tendonitis or plantar fasciitis, imagine people with arthritis in their hips, knees or spine.  These all have inflammation as part of the problem.  A good diet plus these supplements can cause great improvement. 

To sum this up. Dealing with some chronic pain or injury and you want to do all you can, naturally, to fix it?  

Cut down on foods that fan the flames of inflammation: Sugar and refined carbs, excessive alcohol, and trans fats. 

Also consider taking this one two combo punch of Curcumin and Resveratrol.
