Having Control Over Your Inflammation: 4 Simple Tactics

Inflammation is something we hear about a lot, but while it can be good, it can also be bad.

Inflammation is part of our body's natural healing abilities and inflammatory responses occur to fight infections and injuries, but can also go into overdrive when your immune system is trying to protect the body by destroying things that don't need healing, which can be caused by bad diets, lots of stress, or not enough exercise. Let's show you some of the ways to reduce chronic inflammation.


There is a caveat to this. Massaging your body can increase inflammation, but is more effective only when it is conducted by a professional masseuse or via the right products. 

For example, CBD massage oil can work with specific types of localised inflammation when applied effectively. CBD has many benefits in terms of reducing inflammation, but massaging is a technique that can reduce stress by itself, which over time, can minimise cortisol.

Eating Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Diet is a vital solution to living a life with less inflammation, but it is difficult because we're all unique. However, the general consensus is that people should eat more towards the Mediterranean diet because of its limits on unhealthy fats and a focus on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and Omega 3

At the same time, inflammatory foods that contain trans fats or are processed are more likely to increase that inflammation response, and avoiding simple carbohydrates, such as refined sugar, white rice, and white flour can also dampen down the inflammation response.

Managing Stress in the Right Ways

A lot of people believe that it's important to greatly minimise stress in their life, but if you are someone that naturally has an anxious response to something, learning how to control your initial reactions to stress will make a massive difference in the long run. 

We cannot control the situation, but we can control our response.

There are so many different methods to do this. There is CBD, which has been shown to reduce the body’s reaction to stress, but you can also work on stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the relaxation response by the body, as opposed to the sympathetic nervous system which is responsible for fight or flight. Some methods to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system response can include:

Specific deep breathing techniques, like the Wim Hof method.
Stimulating the vagus nerve, you can find out more about this link.
Guided imagery.
Losing Weight

For the sake of your health having a body weight within the relevant BMI will put less strain on the body and decrease the inflammation response. 

Regular exercise is vital to fighting inflammation, however, you need to have the relevant dose. Intense exercise actually increases the inflammation response, which is why you need to get the balance right between something like strength training and undertaking moderate physical activity.

Inflammation is one of those things that, as beneficial as it can be, is something we all need to have control over in the modern world.
