explain more about eating in a way to reduce inflammation.

Acid and Inflammation in Your Mouth and Body

Too much acid in your system causes inflammation to occur. Scientific evidence is uncovered all the time regarding how inflammation can cause a host of health issues. Among inflammatory diseases is periodontal disease. Starting with gingivitis (early gum disease) gum inflammation and infection can quickly transition to periodontitis (advanced gum disease) when not taken care of. What you eat can play a role in the severity of gum disease. Many people find that achieving a balanced pH level through eating certain foods, coupled with diligent oral hygiene, can reduce or reverse the symptoms of inflammatory medical conditions like periodontal disease.

Whole Foods for Whole Body Balance

There is no surprise in the fact that whole foods are healthier for our bodies than their processed counterparts. Convenience foods are often the most marketed, in the most colorful and fun packaging. While they may not satisfy hunger in the way whole grains, fruits and vegetables do, they usually taste great. To avoid temptation, stick to your grocery store’s perimeters. Spend most of your time (and grocery budget) on the produce section. Try to shop organic when feasible. Drastic diet changes should be discussed with your general physician, but upping the intake of plant based foods and whole grains, and reducing junk food may very well decrease inflammation in your mouth and body.
