Are Your Healthy Food Options Causing Inflammation?

Eating healthy doesn't alway mean the foods you are eating are right for your body. When you are dealing with health concerns foods that cause inflammation are best to be stayed away from. Some foods you think are healthy may actually be causing more harm then good. Here are a few examples of foods that may be causing inflammation and pain in the body. 

Although yogurt is deemed a healthy food and a probiotic however there are a few things you should be aware of. If you have dairy allergies then you want to make sure you stay away from yogurt. Yogurt can cause inflammation as well as enhance allergies or any sensitivities you may have. Consuming nonorganic yogurt can also add unwanted hormones into the body. If your yogurt is flavored you are also adding in sugar which also causes inflammation. If you can't imagine giving up yogurt I would recommend finding one that is low in sugar or has no sugar at all and is from antibiotic-free and contain no added hormones. You can also try yogurt that is made from coconut and is dairy free. 

Granola bars are also a tricky healthy food that can cause inflammation. Granola bars are usually very high in sugar and contain some kind of grain that contains gluten. Making a home made trail mix with almonds, pumpkin seeds and raw coca nibs can be a much better option than store bought that is loaded with sugars. Bottle juices can also be high in sugar and have added ingredients and preservatives for added shelf life. If possible go to a juice bar that is made to order or make it yourself at home.

Watching the foods you eat can help to lower inflammation in the body. Getting adjusted with your local San Diego Chiropractor can also be helpful for those who suffer from inflammation because you are releasing joint and nerve pressure. Many San Diego Chiropractors also offer nutritional programs and classes for those who suffer from inflammation or pain. combining different natural remedies can help for better overall health.
