Tips For Fighting Inflammation Naturally
I always like these guides to helping yourself naturally. Yes, modern medicine is wonderful and super and I use it all the time blah blah blah. However, the more I can attune myself to my body's needs, rather than trying to do the reverse (which never works out well in the end), the better.
I realize that from all the health stuff I post that people who don't know me and only stumble upon this blog probably think I'm either sickly or some kind of new-age nut. Neither could be further from the truth. I just try to understand my place in the world and maximize my potential. So, I don't smoke, I don't drink carbonated sodas except on special occasions while out, don't eat much fast food at all, don't drink the hard stuff, etc. On the flip side, I do eat a lot of the wrong things and don't eat enough of the good things in posts like this. But I am interested, and maybe I'll improve over time in that regard.
I suppose that makes me a bit of a stick-in-the-mud for some, a real party pooper, but that's me and all that's never going to change. And, don't think I'm being sanctimonious about anything, because I'm not - all you have to do is read about some guy living to 116 or something, in perfect health all the way, who attributes it to smoking like a sieve or drinking scotch every day or something like that, to know that no lifestyle is "best" or "better" or anything like that. We all decide what's right for ourselves, and nobody's decision about that is better than anyone else's. I know an awful lot of people wouldn't want to live to 116 anyway. ;)
But, I think I'm the better for it.
