Our 7 Best Inflammation-Fighting Tips
If you’ve browsed our product selection or read through our blogs, you’ve probably realized by now that we talk about inflammation quite a bit. There’s a good reason for it – while inflammation is your body’s natural process of protecting injuries, fighting illness, and more, sometimes it can get out of hand.
Chronic inflammation can negatively impact virtually every aspect of your well-being, from your mental and emotional health, to your heart health, to your ability to move without joint or muscle pain.
Dr. Meredith Warner, the founder of Well Theory, is an orthopedic surgeon who sees the long-term consequences of unchecked inflammation every day – and developed our resources and products to help you naturally relieve inflammation in your daily life.
Today, we’re rounding up some of our most helpful resources and tips to assist you in relieving inflammation:
Tart Cherries have long been used as a “folk” remedy for arthritis pain and gout, but recent research has shown that tart cherry extract has a host of other health benefits to offer.
The antioxidants present in tart cherries can reduce pain and inflammation. This makes it ideal for post-workout recovery, or a natural solution if you find that you’re sore from being on your feet all day.

Supplementing with PEA helps you harness your natural healing processes for faster relief with less pain.
PEA (palmitoylethanolamide) is found in high levels during several inflammatory and painful disorders due to its innate anti-inflammatory activities.
It basically functions as an internal regulator of pain. PEA is of the same family that anandamides are, or the neurotransmitters that are affected by CBD – meaning that it has the same anti-inflammatory effect as CBD does.
We offer PEA products for those who want a safe, natural pain and inflammation reliever but would prefer to avoid taking CBD.
We strongly believe in the efficacy of PEA and have incorporated it into many of our products – like our Essential Multivitamin.

Each time you work out, small micro-tears form in your muscles – and as they heal, they become stronger.
This is a perfectly natural part of your body’s healing process, but keeping inflammation in check after exercise is a great way to make sure you don’t lose momentum in your fitness regimen.
Natural anti-inflammatories and antioxidants can assist with recovery.
Oxidative stress occurs when your body struggles to neutralize free radicals. When your body uses and breaks down oxygen molecules, for example, free radicals are released – as they are in many of your body’s natural processes.
However, when you aren’t getting enough sleep, enough essential vitamins in your diet, etc., your body struggles to produce antioxidants – which neutralize free radicals.
When free radicals aren’t neutralized, they travel through the body, damaging nearby cells as they look for other molecules and atoms to bind to. This state is called “oxidative stress,” and can induce fatigue, inflammatory conditions, and more.
Laboratory measures of oxidative stress are significantly reduced when conversion to an olive-oil-rich diet take place. Olive oil has many phytochemicals that naturally reduce inflammation and provide antioxidant protection; this is especially true of extra virgin olive oils.
In this blog, Dr. Meredith Warner discusses her own daily anti-inflammatory routine – what products she takes, when, and why, and why it’s so important to have a daily anti-inflammatory practice.
“As an orthopedic surgeon and wellness expert who often sees patients suffering from a myriad of inflammatory illnesses, I know just how important it is to have a daily anti-inflammatory routine.”
“Gut health” refers to the number of healthy bacteria present in your gut. Or, it refers to what type of bacteria are in your intestines. The type of bacteria is dependent upon your stress levels, diet, and lifestyle along with your environment.
A healthy gut efficiently breaks down food, absorbs nutrients quickly, and can have far-reaching effects on your overall health – yes, even your brain health.
This blog explores a study that indicated a healthier gut microbiome was linked to reduced inflammation levels in the brain.
CBD Oil is highly anti-inflammatory and highly antioxidant. It engages your body’s endocannabinoid or regulatory system to naturally stop an overly inflammatory response at the source. Your body achieves and maintains homeostasis by employing this Endocannabinoid System, or ECS.
The ECS is a network of neurotransmitters called endocannabinoids, and receptors for these that are located everywhere throughout the body – in the brain, heart, liver and in your bones, skin, and even digestive tract.
In fact, there are more of the ECS-type receptors in the human body than any other type. CBD can bind to and block receptors, exerting a balancing effect.
If you want to naturally “hack” your ECS to relieve pain, inflammation, anxiety, and promote better sleep – you should consider giving CBD Oil a try!
