Anti-Inflammatory Foods You Should Eat

External injuries and underlying medical conditions can cause inflammation in your body. If you remember, inflammation is your body’s way of defending itself from injuries and infection. But when it becomes chronic, it’s time to address the problem.  

While a pulsed electromagnetic field machine can help regulate inflammation, some types of food can also fight this condition. So, before you decide to open your medicine kit to take medications for the discomfort you’re feeling, check your pantry first. The solution may just be in the food you eat.   

In this blog, we’ll learn more about how specific kinds of food can help one reduce inflammation.

inflammatory foods

1. Berries

Berries are low-calorie food rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals. The most common types of berries include strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. These fruits also contain antioxidants and polyphenols, which can help with inflammation.  

According to an article published on Harvard Health Publishing’s site, studies have shown the potential of berries to help lower the risks of heart disease and diabetes. So, berries are more than just nature’s gem-like fruits. They also offer more health benefits than you can imagine. 

2. Tomatoes

Tomato: fruit or vegetable?  

This may (or may not) come as a shock to you, but tomatoes are botanically classified as berries, together with eggplants and avocados.  

But whether you see it as a fruit or vegetable, a tomato’s nutritional value remains, as it brings various benefits to the human body. One of its components is lycopene, which exhibits anti-inflammatory activity. Moreover, lycopene helps prevent chronic vascular diseases and the development of cancer.   

To make the most of tomatoes and absorb more of their lycopene, you can cook them in olive oil. 

3. Broccoli

Broccoli, one of the many vegetables despised by children, has lots of benefits, more than you probably know, as it contains the following nutrients:

  • Fibre 
  • Protein 
  • Vitamins and minerals:
  • Vitamin B9 or Folate 
  • Vitamin C 
  • Vitamin K1 
  • Potassium 
  • Manganese 
  • Iron

Moreover, this vegetable is also rich in plant compounds and antioxidants, like kaempferol. It is a natural flavonol that may help protect your body against allergies, cancer, heart diseases, and inflammation. Broccoli is also good for the eyes and your cholesterol levels. 

4. Green Tea

Sugary beverages aren’t your friends when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle. These drinks are associated with various health issues, such as weight gain, tooth decay, diabetes, and even heart disease.   

So, when you get rid of sweet and unhealthy beverages, drink enough water and consume healthy drinks like green tea.   

Because of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), green tea has been known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, studies show that it decreases inflammatory factors linked to rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and other chronic inflammatory disorders. 

5. Fatty Fish ​

Fatty fish are rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These components—EPA and DHA—help reduce inflammation, which may lead to serious health conditions when left unattended.   

All fishes have omega-3 fatty acids, but salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, and anchovies, are the best sources of these polyunsaturated fatty acids. Also, omega-3 fats have been linked to preventing heart diseases and stroke and controlling arthritis, eczema, and lupus. 

6. Whole Foods ​

Reducing the risk of inflammation means scaling back on processed foods. Therefore, you have to stay away from anything processed—those pre-packaged deserts, a bag of snacks, processed meats and cheeses, or basically most food items that come in printed packaging of bags or boxes. This type of food usually contains many processed ingredients, especially added sodium or sugar. The key here is to check the list of ingredients. 

Now that you’ve gotten rid of anything processed, you may think there are scarce options for you. But remember, you still got whole foods! 

Whole foods are those that are freshly picked or have not been processed. It includes legumes, nuts, meat, fish, eggs, whole grains, and of course, fruits and vegetables. These foods from nature can help manage inflammation. 

How Does a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Machine Help with Inflammation?

A pulsed electromagnetic field therapy machine possesses the potential to be the cure for chronic pain and pain management, as quoted by Dr Oz.  

In his 1-hour TV segment on PEMF therapy, he explained that a pulsed electromagnetic field machine sends resonating pulses deep inside the body. Therefore, it may help with circulation and blood flow while reducing inflammation, unlike sports creams that just affect the surface.   

As you know, inflammation may bring discomfort to your body or result in irritation, pain, redness, and swelling, eventually reducing your overall quality of life. The good thing is that PEMF therapy machines are designed to aid in the improvement of certain conditions caused by inflammation.
