Inflammatory and Anti-Inflammatory Foods
Having produced podcasts for the last couple of years related to food and health, there is consistent mention by our distinguished podcast guests and medical professionals of the connection between inflammation and diet. Based on information from these interviews, here’s a summary of inflammatory and anti-inflammatory foods.
"Super informative! I especially like that the questions asked don't assume we know most of the answers already. The idea that migraines manifest themselves in children as tummy aches really provides a picture of the mind-gut connection. Thank you for this. I really don't like kombucha, but now I'd be willing to give it another try."
