Welcome to your weekly "What You Need To Know" where I share with you tips, tricks and tidbits of information to help you get through your day to day life, hopefully, a bit smoother!
This week is all about inflammation OR better yet, things that you might be able to find right in your own cabinets to help you DECREASE your inflammation!
Maybe you're wondering why decreasing your inflammation is important for you to know? The easiest way to sum it up without all the technical terms is that inflammation can release a protein and a type of amino acid that, in high levels, can cause distress on the central nervous system (aka: the brain and spinal cord that MS can attack). And that is something we want to protect, not cause stress to!
SO, diving right in...
🌿 Herbs & Spices:
🥦 Whole Foods
★ Berries (strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberries)
★ Broccoli (as well as cauliflower, brussels sprouts, kale)

If you're more of a beverage fan, I've got you covered there too:
☕ Here are a few recipes for inflammation-reducing drinks, like Golden Chai Latte & celery juice
