Our collaborator the Healthing Medical Center,, give us the guidelines to follow a proper nutrition to fight inflammation. Encourage or avoid certain nutrients to prevent, or even heal pathologies of very diverse nature.
It is frequent that, due to the way of life that we lead, stress, unhealthy eating, let's have some Chronic indices of inflammation in the body.

Objective: to reduce inflammation
What is inflammation?
The inflammation is a Natural reaction of the body produced by detecting a damage that has to be repaired.
"Inflammation that does not hurt" is what has become chronic. The body does not achieve healing, but even greater deterioration of it.
Imagine that it is as if you leave the tap open, and nobody closes it.
A guideline of food with anti-inflammatory base will be able to close this open tap, to favor the correct state of the organism.
La intestinal microbiota plays an important role, acts as another organ, weighing up to 2 kg, because of the billions of bacteria we have, and in number they add up more than the cells of the body.
But, why do we get inflamed?
For several reasons:
- Toxic agentss, (plastics, bisphenol, cans ...) environmental substances such as pollution, pesticides, amalgams with heavy metals ...
- Autoimmune diseases: Crohn's, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, psoriasis ...
- Imbalance between omega 3 and 6 fatty acids
- Glucose peaks
- Vitamin D deficiency
- Premenstrual syndrome
In addition, we know, what pathologies such as the Metabolic syndrome, covering overweight or high waist perimeter, abdominal fat is the most harmful, since it oppresses the organs obstructing its proper functioning, insulin resistance, arterial hypertension, and dyslipidemia, it also favors the inflammation of the body.
We turn our attention to the intestine.
This type of food guideline has as its fundamental basis to reeducate the bowel. Through proper and personalized nutrition, intestinal level functioning guarantees an adequate absorption of nutrients and an efficient immune system.
We must then, to promote food groups that favor the reduction of inflammation. In the same way, we should avoid foods that have a purely inflammatory nature.
Fats are very important.
The Foods rich in Omega 3His powerful anti-inflammatory. These are the blue fish and nuts. Special mention is made of blue fish of small size, as these are the ones that less heavy metals accumulate in their adipose tissue.
The gluten deserves special mention.
The gluten is in wheat, oats, barley, rye, spelled and kamut. But it is the wheat gluten the one that more problems of allergies or intolerances generates.
El Active gluten / alters zonulin. This is the protein that modulates the permeability of the tight junctions between the cells of the wall of the digestive tract, therefore it is very regulating the permeability of our intestines.
And the dairy ...
Without a doubt milk is a very complete and nutritious food, it provides carbohydrates, proteins, quality fats, vitamins and minerals.
But we know that both your sugar (lactose), as its protein (casein), are ahighly mucogenic, in addition to being linked to the activation of the body's inflammatory response.
At the Healthing medical center we have available to our patients supplementation that we have selected for each particular need.
