Each blood type diet consists of three subcategories of foods, including foods you should eat, foods that do not fit in your blood type, and foods you can eat to heal yourself.
It does miracles for both your immunity and digestive tract. Given that it is heat-stable, you can use it in cooking. Heat-stable means that it bears high temperatures with no trouble, and does not oxidize, which is not the case with other oils.
Medium-chain fats in coconut oil, especially lauric acid, are easily ‘processed’ in the body, and your liver uses them as a nice source of energy. Coconut oil is packed with good fats, and these have excellent antimicrobial properties. They also contribute to a healthier balance of good bacteria in the intestines. Enjoy it more often to deal with sugar and carbohydrate cravings. It will also make you feel full for longer.
They are also an amazing source of healthy monounsaturated fats. Such fat does not worsen an existing inflammation, unlike polyunsaturated fats. Monounsaturated fats protect arteries and maintain normal blood pressure. Add some fresh avocado slices to your salad to feel full until your next meal, so you do not have to ‘attack’ your candy reserves.
Yes, the main focus is on healthy fats. Well noticed. As you already know, the most powerful anti-inflammatory foods come packed with great fats. Natural fats are usually anti-inflammatory, and processed vegetable oils contain omega-6 fatty acids and increase inflammation.
Oily fish is a great source of omega-3 fats. This enhances the production of pain-alleviating prostagnalndins. By adding oily fish to your menu, you can treat aching ailments like arthritis, menstrual cramps and fibromyalgia. Fish oil relieves inflammation in artery walls, and thus aids in treating atherosclerosis (hardened arteries) and clotting.
Most types of oily fish contain high amounts of selenium, which works great for patients who deal with autoimmune disease, since they have a huge impact on the production of auto-antibodies. Selenium is also responsible for the production of glutathione, an antioxidant that is naturally present in the body.
If you are often bothered with viral infections, selenium is the solution to your problem. Chronic viral infections contribute to a constant fatigue and bad inflammation.
Find some wild salmon, trout, mackerel, herrings, sardines, mullet and anchovies. These make delicious dishes, plus contain great amounts of omega-3 fats. If you do not like to eat fish that often, use high-quality fish oil and selenium supplement.
This yellow spice has a nice and mild flavor, and it gives the color of curry powder. If you are into fresh produce, healthy food stores often have fresh turmeric root. Add it to your favorite curry, stew or juices. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, and it has shown to provide a huge anti-inflammatory power. Moreover, it is an excellent painkiller. Curcumin benefits the digestive tract, and relieves indigestion and unpleasant bloating.
Chocolate is not regarded as a healthy food, but dark chocolate sure is. Find products with 85% cocoa content, or even higher. Dark chocolate contains no dairy products. Some brands of dark chocolate have also eliminated soy lecithin from their list of ingredients. Soy lecithin is believed to be a GMO ingredient. High-cocoa chocolate contains almost no sugar, which means you cannot eat that much, due to its strong taste. It is so rich, that it is practically impossible to eat the whole bar.
Dark chocolate contains antioxidant phenols. These fight free radicals and increase good cholesterol levels. Patients with syndrome X and insulin resistance also deal with low levels of good cholesterol and high levels of bad cholesterol. Eventually, this leads to arterial plagues.
Healthy foods taste great and relieve inflammation in the same time. Switch to healthy foods, ad you will never ever bother with stubborn ailments.
