5 Ways To Combat Low-Grade Inflammation

Chronic low-grade inflammation is said to be the hidden force at the heart of modern disease. It’s often subtle and can go completely undetected, but research suggests hidden inflammation may be responsible for over 80% of diseases, including cancer and heart disease – the leading causes of death worldwide. According to Dr. Shilpa Revella, bestselling author of A Silent Fire: The Story of Inflammation, Diet & Disease, “Low-level, invisible inflammation, simmering quietly in the blood of ostensibly healthy people, may be a common thread running through nearly all diseases.” Hidden inflammation doesn’t just affect your physical health. Researchers found over 25% of people with depression suffered from underlying low-grade inflammation.

Here's 5 simple ways to help prevent, reduce, and reverse hidden inflammation:

1. Eat More Fiber & Anti-Inflammatory Foods

According to the National Institute of Health, 95% of Americans don’t eat enough fiber. Fiber-rich foods not only contain plenty of anti-inflammatory nutrients, but fiber also plays an important role in modulating the immune response and the production of cytokines that cause inflammation.

2. Get More Movement

According to the CDC, 60% of Americans don’t get enough exercise. Exercise counters inflammation by shrinking inflammatory visceral fat and lowering the number of immune cells that infiltrate fat tissue and release inflammatory cytokines.

3. Get Outdoors More

According to the EPA, the average American spends 93% of their life indoors. Spending time outdoors in nature helps boost your gut microbiome, which is made up of trillions of good bacteria and plays a central role in immune function and inflammation, through encountering more ancestral microbes in the water, soil, and air.

4. Use Clean Products

According to the CDC, 97% of Americans have toxic chemicals in their blood. Using clean, environmentally friendly household and personal care products reduces your exposure to harmful pollutants and toxins that may inflame you.
