Cardinal Signs of Inflammation
Dr. Tyler Jean goes through many different causes of inflammation. Here is a list of 9 he mentions:
- high blood sugar (hyperglycemia)
- chronic stress
- sleep deprivation
- inflammatory foods
- gut dysbiosis
- nutrient deficiencies
Something I say on the show today and have been talking about more lately is the idea that it’s not always the best idea to start with eliminating entire food groups (i.e. gluten, dairy, eggs).
Instead, consider cutting things like processed/packaged foods and fried foods first. In other words, cut the ingredient(s) vs the ingredients.
Typically that’s going to get you much further than arbitrarily cutting entire food categories like gluten, dairy, eggs, etc.
