Inflammation is something we see daily in the clinic coming out in client releases. So, what is it and what causes it?
As Anthony William writes in his book Medical Medium – Thyroid Healing, inflammation is a sign that an invader is present, and that your body is going after that invader. We see inflammation here in the clinic daily, usually showing as mucous. If you have symptoms of inflammation, it might be a good idea to reduce your acidic food intake. Acidic foods to avoid in your diet are:
Meat – especially processed meats
Processed oils (margarine, sunflower & peanut oils)
It's also important to note that our emotions can be “acidic” too. What we “feed” our minds through our thoughts and emotions is just as important as what we feed our bodies with food.
Negative emotions such as anxiety, anger, fear, guilt, hopelessness, hostility, shame as well as suppressed emotions that we have yet to allow to come to surface and be dealt with can all negatively impact our body.
We here at Bayside Colonics recommend a “food diet” high in alkaline foods, 80% in fact – and a “mind diet” of limiting stress and negative emotions.
Stress is unfortunately a part of all our lives, so ensuring you have an effective way to deal with it and well as scheduling in time for self-care and rest is essential for establishing and maintaining wellness in your entire body.
