Healthy Is Reducing Inflammation

Inflammation is a powerful immune response in the body when tissues are injured.

Inflammation helps infections and wounds to heal, and toxins to be eliminated. When it is acute and short term, inflammation is healing. But, like most good things in life, too much of it for too long is a bad thing. When it is continually activated, chronic inflammation is at the root of most chronic diseases. Join us this month as we highlight challenges proven to help you reduce inflammation.


Sugar is naturally occurring in many healthy foods like fruits, but the added sugar in processed foods is the danger. Consuming too much added sugar negatively affects your mind and body, increasing disease risk. Because of the added sugar in processed foods, on average we consumer 5 to 10 times the normal amount of sugar we need.

In this challenge, we explore three rules to live by when it comes to sugar: eliminating all straight sugar, eating seven grams or less of sugar per serving, and avoiding white breads, cereals, and fried foods. We’ll help you identify the simplest strategies and alternatives to incorporate this practice into your life.


Maybe you’re already pretty good at avoiding refined sugar – that’s great! How about eliminating inflammatory fats and oils from your diet? Naturally occurring fats in whole foods give us energy, help us transport nutrients, assist in making hormones, and create healthy cell membranes. But, refined fats and oils can actually damage our cells, cause metabolic dysfunction, and wreak havoc on our immune system. We’ll show you exactly what to look for to eliminate these from your meal plan!


Here’s a different type of challenge to try: start or end your shower with 10 seconds of cold water, and gradually work your way up to 60 seconds. Not only does this help reduce inflammation, it also reduces muscle soreness and increases your metabolism.

All of these are simple changes that will lead to big impacts over time for your health. Sign up for your coaching session today to explore these challenges with our team of coaches. We can’t wait to see you there!
