The Ultimate Anti-inflammatory Food Guide for Lupus

An anti-inflammatory diet is the first step to living a relatively healthy lifestyle

An anti-inflammatory diet can be the first step to help you change your lifestyle. After all, it is unlikely that someone would trade in ice cream for frozen grapes, but continue to make wholly unhealthy decisions in all other aspects of their lives.

Some positive changes to make in addition to the shift in diet would be to address any issues like chronic stress, lack of sleep, or not getting enough physical activity - all of which can cause chronic inflammation. Similarly, make sure that you remove toxins from your environment to the best of your abilities. For example, eco-friendly, natural, and organic options for household cleaners are better for human health than their toxic, but more popular, counterparts. Second-hand smoke and toxic beauty and skincare products also have the potential to trigger inflammation.
