Numerous lifestyle factors can lead to inflammation, which in turn can trigger a number of illnesses. Two physicians draw on their personal and professional experiences and present an in-depth evaluation of the impact inflammation has on chronic disease, along with a revolutionary approach to restoring balance.
Monica Aggarwal and Jyothi Rao help readers take an honest assessment of their energy, lifestyle, dietary habits, and mental state and provide a series of interventions for reclaiming health. In-depth explanations of the dangers of stress and the benefits of microbiomes on not only digestive health but also general well-being show how common dietary and lifestyle changes can make a dynamic difference. The authors also bring a broader understanding of how our bodies work and what they require to be healthy. The specific plant-based foods that reduce harmful inflammation and nurture healthy digestive organisms are identified. Further guidance is provided on quality sleep-especially in today's digital age-adequate hydration, mind-body techniques to recharge and activate our bodies, the role of exercise, and the benefits of intermittent fasting. Each chapter includes recommendations and action steps.
