7 Tips To Reduce Stress & Inflammation

In our fast-paced world, we have lost sight of many aspects of life that truly nourish and balance our bodies, such as slowing down, eating a home-cooked meal and spending quality time with loving people. Eating consciously and making simple lifestyle changes will create positive results and release you from the endless cycle of dieting.



Given half a chance, your body will balance out by itself, but this is only possible by getting out of the diet mentality and listening to what you truly need. Imagine taking all of the outward energy you expend on diets, fads and gimmicks and turning it inward, so that you can listen to your heart and inner wisdom. There is no such thing as a quick fix; you already have everything you need within you. With careful thought and loving reflection, you can feed yourself in a nourishing way. Working with your body rather than against it will bring you increased energy, stabilized weight and sustainable health. Here are some tips to help improve immune system and reduce inflammation:

  1. Eat a whole foods, high fibre, plant-based diet which is mostly anti-inflammatory.
  2. Eat healthy fats from olive oils, nuts, avocados and omega-3 fats from small fish like sardines, herring, wild salmon.
  3. Exercise
  4. Learn to actively relax to engage the vagus nerve, the powerful nerve that relaxes your whole body by doing yoga, meditation, deep breathing or even taking a hot bath
  5. If you have food allergies, find out what they are and stop eating those foods
  6. Take probiotics (“good bacteria”) daily to help your digestion to improve the healthy bacteria in your gut, which reduces inflammation
  7. Juice fruits and vegetables (more veggies and less fruits) at least three to four times a week
