I could go on about the genetic mutations that limit a person’s body to break down histamine foods. Or, the specialized lab tests that determine if non-wheat grains are cross-reacting with your gut lining. But, I would be complicating matters for this article. One of the keys to avoiding inflammation is avoiding foods that contain saturated fats.

Instead, look for foods that are composed of monounsaturated fats, like. How to get started on an anti-inflammatory diet plan is a question I often get asked and the first thing I’d like to say about that is JUST GET STARTED!

  • I am so blessed this popped up when I searched for anti inflammatory diet. A super engaging and well put lecture that is sooo informative. Thank you Kayla and WellStar health!

  • Thanks for this! I would love to see if you could make a video that includes good options for people who travel 3 to 4 times a week away from home. I have a hard time keeping up with my clean anti inflammatory meals while being in airports and hotel food due to traveling weekly for work.

  • This video was very helpful. I am someone that never had
    infalmmatory problems as a child but as an adult it’s been hard. No
    doubt this can be proved as a chronic problem if not treated well. But it can
    be treated without facing surgeries by Ayurvedic treatment. You can consult Dr.
    Vikram Chauhan, CEO of planet Ayurveda for better results, you can consult
    online also or you can order from
    our online store easily. All the products will be delivered to your houses. Thank

  • Ginger and Peppermint! I love to make fresh ginger tea or throw fresh ginger in my smoothie to help with inflammation. I also love making peppermint infused water with fresh leaves. I roll them between my hands to release the oils. Peppermint tea is great too ��

  • Thank you for the information! I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and started taking tart Cherry concentrate 800mg, I hope that this will work as well as the juice. I have done some reading and they find it does work the same.

  • Great info! I’ve been incorporating your recommended anti inflammatory drinks as well and am now obsessed with golden milk. It’s my pumpkin spice latte substitute when that craving hits.

  • wow! that didn’t cover much about what you can eat when your having problems with inflammation. You see video on what not to eat and they are like way more informative than this it didn’t even feel like you really cared.

  • Stick with Flax seeds walnuts, avocados, because fish and refined oils have saturated and trans fat in them so eating that may or may not relieve arthritis symptoms but cause Heart Disease, Diabetes, allergies, dermatitis, cancers………………….. These folks mean well but only tell you a piece of the story.

  • Alternatives to Greek yoghurt and cheese to people who have high protein needs? Theyre staples in my diet precisely because of their highly Proteinic profile


  • I have always read that tomatoes Do cause inflammation, as they are a member of the nightshade family. I now have osteoporosis and if I eat tomatoes my inflammation and pain greatly increases. The same with white potatoes, which is also a nightshade!!

  • NEVER USE TURMERIC it will do the exact opposite, increaseee inflammation because it is manmade just like strawberry and white rice. Use black seed oil instead. It will heal diabetes eyesight thyroids heart disease basically anything…..but go on a fast for 2 months and use it while fasting you will thank me later. How do i know all of this? Because it healed my uncle his eyesight in 2 weeks and it healed my grandmother from digestive problems she was about to get stomach shortening sugery thank god she used the black seed oil

  • take daily 1 tylenol 650 mg sustained release tablet at bed after dinner for better morning. it is good for osteoarthritis. ask your doctor first.

  • Eggs can’t legally be called healthy. Just an FYI. I highly recommend researching actual studies about eggs. Try again this video just officially became dog shit

  • Finally! Someone suggesting how to mechanically slow down a fast eater. I am a fast eater and struggle with just slowing myself down. It’s one of my biggest struggles. This is an under rated video.

  • Reduce your inflammation, feel amazing in your body, and lose weight in the next 30 days with my 30 Day Healthy program. Learn more at https://www.asweetpeachef.com/30-day-healthy-youtube-4

  • Regarding meats, pasture-raised grass-fed animals have many times more omega-3 than conventional grain/soy fed animals, as well as other nutrients. Also, how you cook meat makes a huge difference. Grilling and frying create lots of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which are highly inflammatory. Poaching and braising don’t create much AGEs. When making stews, skip the browning; it is not necessary.

  • Also..thank you so much for the way you present this information; the slides really are so helpful, I guess I am a concrete learner!:)

  • Excellent information!!! inflammatory
    disorders can be chronic disorders that results in severe symptoms. Person
    suffering from kidney diseases have to take medicines throughout life..i am
    having a better recommendation change your lifestyle and start taking ayurvedic
    treatment from Planet ayurveda for healthy life.

  • This is just superb, been searching for “what is fatty food” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Meyaanit Fatty Escapeify (do a search on google )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my mate got excellent success with it.

  • whole grains, legumes, nightshades PROMOTE INFLAMMATION in the body!! Why are those even on the table??? They don’t want you better; they lie to you! Keto and carnivore diet is the way to go!

  • Excellent Video! Forgive me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you heard the talk about Dinanlinson Crazy Tactic Approach (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a good exclusive product for discovering how to use short burst interval training to get that beach body without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my m8 at very last got cool results with it.

  • eh eat what you want when you want, who knows we could all get hit by a bus tommorow, live for today cause there may not be a tommorow

  • Im sad to say tomatoes aggravate my pain yet not eggplaint. Diet must be individualized by trial and error. There are other components to getting well that are just as important and the diet. Increasing L Glutathione is very very important. Vit C and N Acytl Cysteine increase L Glutathione. Satirated fats in meat and butter increase pain immensely. Im creating a protocol.

  • I was looking at your 30 day program and looked at a sample of a daily menu. A lot of it includes dairy. Cheese, yogurt, dairy protein shake. How can I substitute these things with other products.

  • Keri’s presentation is generally OK, but she sped way too fast through terms like “saturated fats”, “trans fats”, etc. (n.b. I almost got the impression she did not fully grasp the differences herself). To see an excellent (i.e., professional & clear) summary of what we should eat and avoid, search for video presented by Shayna Komar (uploaded by Living Better), a licensed and registered dietician who genuinely knows how to convey knowledge��. It’s so much easier to remember what a healthy diet is all about, when one understands the basics.

  • Eating breakfast is not healthy your body has not woken up properly from sleep and is not properly fasting while a sleep, many people eat before sleeping then when waking not really letting the body digest properly. if you wake at 8am do not eat til 12 or 1pm EARLIEST.. if you can go til 4pm go that long and have one big meal a day… ( I am not a doctor but thats just a way for people who learn by uni’s to make money, research for yourself )

  • I keep hearing that we shouldn’t cook with olive oil because it doesn’t have a high smoke point and changes under the heat of cooking

  • everywhere you read it says to drop the nightshades if you have overall inflammation and joint issues, especially if you have an autoimmune issue. Id imagine most people eat way to many potato and tomato products on a weekly basis. or daily. the main culprit being the chemical solanine in nightshades. so even a gluten free grain free “healthy pizza” can cause pain for certain people cause of the sauce. Its so hard to nail down what is causing so many disturbances in the body.

  • Diet and exercise can cure a lot of the uncurables. Along with a positive attitude.Also hanging our with good people..Plus types of food,amount and times. Try intermittent fasting too.In about 2 weeks u should c results.

  • So important to aim for organic, GMO-free and clean foods. when you eat conventionally grown foods, you’re also ingesting toxins (including pesticides) added to them in the production process, or from environmental pollution. Many of these toxins cause an invader-fighting response from your white blood cells, which contributes to inflammation!

  • I had to give up raw leafy greens, even though they are very healthy, because I suspect they may have been causing sinus inflammation.

  • Its a miracle that I am alive today. I encounter HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1/2) for good four (4) years, six (6) months and twelve (12) day with my calculations, before I meet the great Dr. Abumere. I am Tina Richard from Fresno California, united state of America and I was affected with herpes virus.Herpes is a viral infection cause by the Herpes simplex virus, marked by painful, watery blister in the skin or mucous membrane or on the genitals. This was what I suffered for good four years. I have visited CVS Pharmacy in Fresno for treatment but no improvement. I meet Dr.Abumere online while I was searching for herpes cure I read a testimony about his work. I give a try that now becomes a testimony in my life. I contacted Dr.Abumere on Email: [email protected] or WhatsApp: +2349021975055

  • This was great, thanks, I’ve been looking for “perfect beach body in 30 days” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Denrooklyn Zonayden Smasher (do a google search )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my partner got cool results with it.

  • I can’t explain how much you’ve helped me in the last couple months. Tried and true tips. I woke one day and could barely walk my feet hurt so badly. That’s when I found you and starting following your tips… almost 100% better. ������

  • Big fan of eat to live plan so very small amount of nuts but yet berries, greens, etc. Noooooo animals will be in my body including fish which have feelings and lives that deserve to be left unharmed. Other than that I agree with your ideas

  • This is just superb, I been tryin to find out about “managing arthritis pain without medication” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Arlotteken Arthritis Ambitioned (do a search on google )? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my brother in law got excellent results with it.

  • I get crazy getting all the listings of anti inflammatory fruits, seeds, fish, Tec. They contradict each other. Bloggers arttention please. Get your acts together to avoid confusion in your followers. Which is which?����������

  • I have metatastic cancer, and though I disagree with the recommended oils, as olive oil is my go-to, I liked the rest of this talk, as I need frequent reminders and motivation

  • Lovely Video! Excuse me for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you considered Schallingora Complete Resetting Scheme (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a good one off guide for curing arthritis minus the headache. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my old buddy Taylor at very last got great results with it.

  • I’ve also heard of people getting good results for arthritis on the carnivore diet which is the complete opposite of this diet, isn’t it more of a case of what you don’t eat (processed junk foods) that is important?

  • Linoleic acid (omega-6) is the major poly-unsaturated fatty acid found in soy oil.
    The polyunsaturated fats in canola oil include 21% linoleic acid — more commonly known as omega-6 fatty acid — and 11% alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of omega-3 fatty acid.
    Chia seeds and flax seeds are good plant sources of omega-3, with low omega-6. Forget soy and canola. Best to soak chia seeds and to freshly grind flax seeds. Never buy flax already ground. Polyunsaturated oils are unstable and easily oxidized.

  • Nope, no fish-too much mercury a serious toxin poison. No eggs either, 300mg of animal cholesterol in each egg yolk. Stay away from table sugar, use raw honey such as Miller’s that has no processing. Arthritis is an autoimmune disease which can be reversed in some cases. All 100 or so of these autoimmune diseases are caused by leaky gut which needs to be healed, nutrify, de-tox and have faith and trust in the God of the Bible:

    Autoimmune disease reversal plans

    It’s leaky gut that causes autoimmune diseases.-we should
    never add meds which are toxins and are a part of the problem anyway. I’m in
    the process of reversing mine through diet, eliminating some food types,
    de-toxing, and other steps. We have a few ministries in my church that are
    getting reversals on all the 80-to 100 autoimmune diseases we have. I bought a
    book for $25.00 and I’m following the steps in the book now. That way I can
    stop injecting Humira that stops the symptoms of psoriasis (my issue) and other diseases.
      https://www.drjoycechoe.com/autoimmune-recovery-plan this
    one is $200.00 for an online program headed by Dr. Joyce Choe and Mercy Ballard
    which is probably better than the one I’m doing now. They also have an in-house
    10 day program for $3,000.00. One must become a vegan (I was already one) and
    follow their counsel. It’s online with support-very important…
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4vX4S9D9co&t=17s This
    is a 27 min video detailing the 5-step plan I’m doing now. There’s also a link
    to his book. This is Gabriel Arruda and his wife Jennifer, and he had a
    liver-destroying autoimmune disease and food allergies that would give him
    migraine headaches, and a terrible rash/fungus over 1/3 of his body-him and
    Jennifer developed this plan through research, and trial and error-much of
    this info is very scientific. His mom and grandmother both died from the same
    thing. I will modify his plan to fit my psoriasis issue. I may also have
    autoimmune arthritis in both knees that has destroyed most of my cartilage, and
    sinus congestion problems that also may be autoimmune. I just began this 5-step
    plan last week.

  • Myself and several family members have hemachromatosis. It can be miss diagnosed easily. Having this for 60+ yrs. and the only treatment is phlebotomies. Which has been a challenge understanding because labs use different scales I’ve learnef. Which has caused serious setbacks. I also have to take medication that is dangerous to my liver. I’m in final stages from recent evaluations regarding cirrhosis pancreatic and revently, CLL. Any great healthy recipes out there for people with hemachromatosis? There must be some kind of support for this hereditary disease. If you’ve researched or know someone, or yourself has hema. I’d Love to hear anything that could help. Sincerely, Vicki

  • Forget about any food that has eyes or a mother. Run far away from Gluten, Soy and yeast products. It is not about going vegan but reading ingredients on packages.

  • Just read an article from Harvard on wheat grains can lower your glucose to dangerous levels. I’ll stick to white bread, fiber gives me painful stomaches.

  • Its still amaze me just how lots of people have no idea about Custokebon Secrets (look on google search engine) even though lots of people lost a lot of weight with it. Thanks to my personal mate who told me about it. I have lost a lot of weight.

  • I HAVE Ra and I cheat on Fridays or Saturdays by eating whatever the fuck I want.So I allow myself to cheat but I eat healthier on the rest of the week and exercise 5 days.But I am not sure I feel better because of the diet

  • My patella arthritis has really come on strong the last couple of years. Two months ago, I cut processed sugars from my diet. I have a little with my coffee. No soft drinks and no artificial sweeteners. I also have started eating more tuna. My knees feel fine again. Get rid of sugar. Your body will love you.

  • health foods are a scam, there a way for some farmers to sell their produce at rates well above market value, just saying something is a super food and you can sell it for more than double what you normally would. Think about it, all the Super foods seem to come from 3rd world countries that have no health standards in place and no checking if the farmers are using chemicals or not. Just typical 3rd world scammers.

  • This is a good video, but there is no conclusive evidence that calories eaten in surplus windows causes more caloric storage. Ultimately the law of thermogenesis applies. Calories in and calories out. At least it does here. There are other factors like hormonal response that affect health and weight loss, but to the point I’m making, saying that skipping meals can cause more weight to be stored is unfortunately unfounded scientifically. In her defense, I was told the same thing in college, so it’s a well held belief.

  • 60% of this advice… Okeedokee. The other 40%… Total BS! Do a little research, (I’ve done 40 YEARS worth) and it”s easy to pick out the BS!

  • Thankyou Thank you Thank you so much for your time and caring powerfully world heaven on earth blessed world beautiful beautiful beautiful from Kenya thanks

  • Oats are not something that should be eaten often. I’m in the camp that doesn’t think Chia seeds are a health food, rather a inflammatory food. Flax oil is estrogenic so people who are estrogen dominate should be careful with flax and flax oil. Vitamin D is a hormone in the body not a vitamin, regular testing is needed. Magnesium 500 mg and potassium 4,700 mg are very important daily supplements!

  • oily fish makes gout worse and can bring it on. gout is an extremely painful type of arthritis caused by over production of uric acid.

  • I am 31 yr old n have rhumetoid arthritis from 10 yrs n nothing helped me still pain inflimation deformations I tried many things medicines duet change exercise nothing helped. Life is hell

  • All correct except the salmon and sardines. These are animal products and inflammatory. The oceans are the worlds toilet and fish is toxic. The new assault on the fish population is now micro plastics along with 20 carcinogens and of course overfishing. But fear not, we are just about to destroy all of our oceans so fish will be a thing of the past. I see some Japanese billionaire eating sushi and screaming ” haha, I have eaten the last Bluefin Tuna on the planet!!!” it only cost him $5 Mil. but man was it worth it.
