Anti-Aging is Anti-Inflammatory
What is the real deal behind anti-aging? One key ingredient for sure is keeping calm inside and out. Anti-inflammatory ingredients are powerful in helping us stay well, slender and youthful. Things that cause inflammation will exacerbate joint pains, back aches, head aches, allergies, arthritis, forgetfulness, any just about any bigger ailment you can think of.
Acidity in the diet is one way we cause more inflammation. Eating an anti-inflammatory herb such as turmeric or popping something like benadryl is not much against a diet that is rich is caffeine, sugar, vinegar, refined foods, etc. All of those acid producing edibles that will create a body fighting to survive and you won't have the energy you need to thrive. Thus - you are probably aging faster than you need to and looking into ways to keep the wrinkles at bay and your body slim.
Think about the word inflammation. In flames. Sounds like an emergency situation. Then for many people after years of eating in a way that creates a constant emergency in their bodies, they start cutting parts out that no longer work or shooting up with Botox. What if you decide to just start eating well instead. Start creating peace. I've seen people give up sugar and start doing yoga and meditation go from looking 60 to 30 in less than a year. Why do you think that can work? Most likely because they are less inflamed inside and out. They learn to flow their energy positively and eat foods that do that too.
It's not really magic even though it can look that way. Where ever you are, no matter how "good" you think you are doing. See where you might be a tad less inflamed in your own life today. Could you find ways to be kinder to your body and have more ease in your mind?
