As you may well have heard, the diet plays an intrinsic role in the grand scheme of our lives. Fortunately for us, we have the opportunities to make decisions and choices to help us live a better quality of life and even reduce our risk for some of the most prevalent degenerative diseases.
This food pyramid, constructed by Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D., is a guideline for foods we can easily implement into our diet to help reduce inflammation as we age. It has long been suspected that our standard diet could be a leading culprit in the epidemic of diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Inflammation is also linked to Alzheimers, Parkinsons, and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
By following a balanced diet that is abundant in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats, and high quality protein, we can strive towards our best quality of life!
