Inflammation is the body’s attempt at self-protection. It can be in response to an acute injury, bacteria, or viruses. But chronic inflammation causes a domino effect that can greatly compromise your health. Thankfully, certain foods and spices contain naturally anti-inflammatory properties. The fall season is rich with foods that fight inflammation; pumpkin, sweet potatoes, cranberries, beets, broccoli, & dark leafy greens are all great options. And be sure to keep garlic, turmeric, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger on hand as well!
