HEALTH

INFLAMMATION is “The Secret Killer” that feeds off junk food.

Persistent inflammation has been linked to major diseases like diabetes, heart disease, depression and even cancer.  Refined carbohydrates, sweetened beverages and red meat are some common culprits that contribute to inflammation and should be limited in one’s diet as much as possible… but, did you know that there are foods that have anti-inflammatory effects as well?

 

Instead of creating restrictions… create healthy habits.

Here are 6 foods to add to your food plan to combat inflammation.

  1.  Tomatoes – The lycopene found in tomato skin is an antioxidant that        protects your brain and fights depression-causing inflammation.

  2.  Olive Oil – On top of the weight loss benefits and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, olive oil has a significant impact on reducing inflammation. It helps to reduce joint cartilage damage and works similarly to Ibupropfen by preventing production of  inflammatory enzymes.

  3.  Green Leafy Vegetables – Greens that are rich in vitamins like spinach, brussel sprouts and kale are also packed with carotenoids, all of which help the body combat inflammation. Additionally, many of these veggies help boost metabolism, provide antioxidants and significantly decrease the risk of cancer and chronic diseases.

  4.  Nuts

  5. Fatty Fish

  6.  Blueberries

    NOTE: There are a variety of healthy, anti-inflammatory foods that you can incorporate into your food plan.

VARMINTS

No poisons to worry about your child or pet ingesting & no glue traps to catch your pet dog or cat… YIKES!

In the land of long ago… before pesticides and poisons came to be FERRETS were used to rid our homes of varmints (RATS). If a rat even gets the smell of a ferret it will say good-bye… & look for other lodging.
