3 Easy Ways To Fight Inflammation
Inflammation is a naturally-occurring process in the body. It is typically a sign that the body is fighting off disease or cleaning up tissue damage from use and injury, which is a good thing!
However, infection, disorders, injury, and more can increase these levels of inflammation and lead to long-lasting, serious issues. This happens when the immune system loses its normal balance and starts to create chronic inflammation.
Luckily, there are several ways that you can naturally and easily fight chronic inflammation at home.
Inflammation can show up in a number of different ways throughout the entire body. Most often, inflammation is felt in the joints. This can be caused by overuse, injury, and disease.
From arthritis to inflammatory conditions like cardiovascular disease, inflammation can attack the body inside and out.
Many people that suffer from skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis also understand the results of chronic inflammation and inflammation that attacks the body itself. Chronic inflammation in the joints generally causes swelling, pain, and damage to cartilage.
In the feet, you may experience inflammatory pain from conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or gout.
- Gout is a condition caused by an imbalance of uric acid in the body and the formation of uric acid crystals that build up in the joints. As the immune system attempts to rid the body of these crystals, it can cause pain from the inflammation in the affected area.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis is caused by the breakdown of the lining of the joints, or the synovium. This is when inflammation never stops and is always attacking the body itself.
Both conditions are chronic and cause chronic inflammation.
Other painful conditions can cause pain in the heel and radiate throughout the foot. Such conditions include:
- Achilles tendonitis, caused by low-levels of chronic inflammation and the degeneration of the tendon connecting your calf muscle and heel together
- and bursitis, the inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion the joints, can cause pain in the heel and radiate throughout the foot.
1. PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU’RE EATING.
What you eat plays a huge part in the amount of inflammation your body takes on.
Eating a flavonoid-rich diet full of colorful fruits and vegetables is a sure-fire way to make sure that you are getting necessary natural anti-inflammatories and antioxidants into your daily meals!
Look for recipes that use leafy greens, berries and grapes, fiber-rich nuts, and omega-3 fatty acid-packed fish like salmon and tuna.
2. TAKE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY SUPPLEMENTS.
Daily supplementation is a fantastic practice to fight inflammation and further strengthen your system against future attacks! To protect against inflammation, look for supplements that are packed with anti-inflammatory capabilities, like our Well Theory products.
We try to provide products with both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capabilities to give you the most optimal health possible.

This should go without saying, but exercise is a great way to keep excess weight and pressure off of your muscle and joints! A minimum of thirty minutes of exercise each day, or at least four times a week, can do wonders for your full-body health and for fighting inflammation.
The real benefit of exercise is that it induces changes at the cellular level that promote free-radical scavenging and reduced levels of chronic inflammatory proteins.
Look for workout routines that are easy on your joints, like yoga and tai chi.
Don’t underestimate the power of simple choices like taking the stairs, parking further out at the grocery store, or even doing yard work!
These are three simple ways to control inflammation levels that you can build into your daily lifestyle. Pair this with getting lots of water throughout your day and plenty of restful sleep to keep your system free of stress and inflammation. Make these common practices for active, everyday relief!
