The Foodwise inflammatory and immune program focuses on the root causes inflammation and the many things that you can do to keep it under control - to minimise the uncomfortable and often disabling effects of chronic inflammation and associated immune disorders.
Modern-day environmental threats have our immune systems on red alert. The result is chronic inflammation, which contributes to conditions such as asthma and arthritis, as well as ever-increasing rates of autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease. Doctors are trained to shut off inflammation with aspirin and anti-inflammatory medication such as steroids, as well as increasingly more powerful immune suppressing medication with serious side effects.
The Foodwise program helps you address the underlying causes of inflammation in chronic disease.
Hidden allergens, infections, environmental toxins, an inflammatory diet and stress are the real causes of these inflammatory conditions. When you catch a cold or sprain your ankle, your immune system switches into gear. Infection or injury trigger a chain of events called the inflammatory cascade.
The familiar signs of normal inflammation - heat, pain, redness, and swelling - are the first signals that your immune system is being called into action. In a delicate balance of give-and-take, pro-inflammatory hormones in your body clear up infection and repair damaged tissue, while anti-inflammatory compounds move in to begin the healing process once the threat has subsided. This kind of inflammation is known as 'acute' and signifies a well-balanced immune system. Chronic inflammation arises from an immune system response that’s out of control. What started as a healthy mechanism just won't shut off.
Our bodies are made up of very efficient cells that react quickly to whatever we put into them, so a nutritionally balanced diet is essential for maintaining healthy inflammatory and immune reactions. The Foodwise program is based on the latest nutritional science and the actual facts about how your body processes food. By sticking to the recommendations you should see and feel results within a few weeks. Once you’ve restored balance you can relax a little. However, if you have the odd meal, day or weekend of overindulgence, just return to the original principles to calm things down again.
The Foodwise Inflammatory and Immune program is practical, simple and totally addictive! The more you make it a habit, the more natural it becomes to crave the fresh, healthy food your body knows it needs.
