Inflammation is a fact of life these days. With all the new and old diseases, environmental and personal stress, and often poor diet, dealing with inflammation must also be a fact of our lives.
Inflammation also may also negatively impact human sensuality. Do I have your attention now?
These three easy to find foods may help.
Ancient Purple Carrots
Don’t let the name full you. About 1000 years ago, carrots were white or purple until about 400 years ago when Dutch bred the orange into wild carrots and domesticated it.
The free radicals in our body attach the cells. Within the nervous system, they strip the protective sheet that makes them vulnerable to inflammation and perhaps to nerve damage and neuropathic pain.
The antioxidants in purple carrots defend your cells against free radicals. Purple fruits and vegetables with similar benefits are used in Ayurvedic medicine.
Red in cabbage is actually a shade of purple with similar benefits as purple carrots. One of the best ways to double your bang for the buck and get antioxidation and probiotics in your system is to prepare your coleslaw with red cabbage instead of white.
Riding on the wave of Turmeric’s fame as an anti-inflammatory, its potent ginger deserves its own place under the spotlight.
Ginger, with its spicy flavor, can perk up your diet, help digestion, and add an anti-inflammatory element to any diet.
You can also drink ginger tea that comes in packets or make your own by mashing ginger root and boiling it for about 10 minutes. With a little raw honey added, you may experience heaven on earth.
