#002:  Supercharged Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Wondering if the foods you eat makes a difference with your Rheumatoid arthritis symptoms? I can tell you with 100% certainty that YES my friend, they do!

I learned early on that without dietary and lifestyle changes, my symptoms quickly spiraled downhill.

Maybe you, like me, heard an anti-inflammatory diet is best when it comes to feeling good with RA.

But what does that really look like.

And why does one theory suggest one thing, while another says avoid it?

Today I'm sharing what science has been showing for decades - a plant-forward, anti-inflammatory diet is best when it comes to reigning in inflammation and feeling your best day in and day out.

Here's a glance at what I'm sharing in today's episode...

  • What science says when it comes to anti-inflammatory foods
  • The 'ITIS' diet and study created by Dr. Monica Guma, a Rheumatologist and researcher out of University of California, San Diego
  • How 50% of the study participants experienced reduced joint pain, swelling, and fatigue
  • Specific anti-inflammatory foods that help target inflammation and gut health
  • Tips for moving forward and making small, sustainable changes

Happy Listening!
