Holiday Foods That Help Reduce Inflammation

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Happy holidays from our team at Ortho Sport & Spine. Our desire is to help you have a happy holiday season and celebration by helping you be healthy and pain free. If this season finds you suffering from an injury or infection, your body will release chemicals to help protect it and fight off the harmful organisms. This process can cause you redness, warmth and swelling.

During the holiday festive season in December some foods, like sugary foods, can cause inflammation in your body. Additionally, eating too many refined carbohydrates can also be linked to your potential increased inflammation.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians would like to encourage you to choose foods that will not cause inflammation if you’re suffering from an injury or infection.

10 Foods To Choose During The Holiday Season

  1. Brussels sprouts
  2. Turkey
  3. Cranberries
  4. Foods with gelatin
  5. Nuts such as chestnuts, walnuts, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews and pecans.
  6. Garlic
  7. Blueberries
  8. Salmon
  9. Turmeric
  10. 10.Olive oil
