

Immune response to overwork of a joint,
injuries, bad diet, pathogens, etc.
Prolonged inflammation, known as chronic
inflammation, is characterized by simultaneous
destruction and healing of the tissue from the
inflammatory process.

Increased inflammation causes:
Joint destruction
 Cardiovascular disease
 Chronic Allergies
 Nutrient deficiencies

What to eat
& What NOT to eat!

Cow’s milk, beef, liver, pork, lamb


Arachidonic acid is the direct precursor to proinflammatory and pain-promoting immune markers
Saturated fats: activates pro-inflammatory
markers


Cream: marked oxidative stress and lipid
peroxidation that lasts for 3 hours after you eat
Corn oil: rapidly activates pro-inflammatory effect

High glycemic OR carbohydrate dominant
foods (white bread, sugar, high-carb fast-foodstyle breakfast):
Oxidative stress
 Inflammation
 Suppressed immune function  infection or
dysbiosis
 Promotes bacterial overgrowth – inherently proinflammatory


Chemical preservatives & artificial sweeteners

Whole Foods:







Fruits
Veggies
Seeds
Nuts
Whole grains
Omega-3, Omega-6 & Omega-9 Fatty acids
Lean Sources of Protein




Lean meats
Fatty cold-water fish
Soy
Whey proteins

Organic Foods



Non-genetically modified (usually, but not always)
Non-irradiated
Grown without pesticides, herbicides, non-organic
fertilizers, antibiotics or hormones

More nutrients
Taste better

Meats: Grass-fed, grass-finished organic meats


Critical in detox process of liver





Maintains energy
Promotes healthy functioning of liver, kidneys &
other organs
Provides liquid to lubricate joints
BEWARE of “sports drinks” OR “high energy
drinks”


Toxic build up  systemic manifestations
High in sugar (pro-inflammatory)
Try Electrolyte mix instead

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA), EPA, DHA, GLA
and oleic acid:



fatty acid supplementation
Anti-inflammatory
Maintains integrity and functionality of cells

Vitamin C
Anti-inflammatory
 Builds & maintains collagen (component in all
connective tissue, including cartilage)
 Take with alpha lipoic acid


Vitamin D

Common deficiency
 Chronic illness or chronic musculoskeletal pain


Anti-inflammatory
Immune boosting

Vitamin E


Natural (d-alpha) tocopherols OR
D-a-tocopherol succinate

Bioflavonoids



Green tea


Antioxidant
Resveratrol


Decreases bruising
Decreases edema due to inflammation
Antioxidant
Curcumin

Extremely anti-inflammatory

Quercitin




Ginger


Anti-inflammatory
Antioxidant
Antihistamine
Extremely anti-inflammatory
Bromelain

Glucosamine sulfate
Stimulates manufacture of GAGs by chondrocytes
and promotes incorporation of sulfur into cartilage
 Increases ability to absorb shock
 Absorption rate 90-98%


Chondroitin sulfate, bovine cartilage


Mixed of intact or partially hydrolized GAGs
Absorption rate 13%
