In this video, we’re going to look at the root causes of inflammation and the best natural remedies for inflammation.

Here are 10 common causes of inflammation.

1. Gluten consumption and food allergies
Gluten can lead to a leaky gut, a condition where food particles leak through the small intestine. Leaky gut is one of the most common causes of inflammation. Pinpointing a food allergy can also help clear up gut inflammation.

2. Ultra-processed food ingredients
Ultra-processed foods like synthetic sugars, modified food starches, and seed oils go through several industrial processes to the point that they no longer resemble their original form. These foods cause free-radical damage and inflammation in the body.

3. Viruses
Viruses can go in and out of remission, causing inflammatory conditions that come and go. This is often triggered by stress which increases your cortisol levels, suppressing your immune system. Viruses can also block vitamin D.

4. Insulin resistance
Frequent eating and carb consumption leads to insulin resistance. Most of the population is insulin-resistant.

5. Lack of cortisol
Chronic stress over a long period and medications like Prednisone can lead to cortisol resistance.

6. Old injuries
Lack of movement and a sedentary lifestyle can lead to inflammation.

7. Sludge in bile ducts
Without adequate bile salts, bile sludge can back up into the liver causing right shoulder pain and rhomboid pain. This can be corrected by a healthy diet.

8. Too much iron
This is typically caused by a genetic issue and is more common in men.

9. Hypoxia
Conditions like COPD, cirrhosis of the liver, clogged arteries, and sleep apnea can cause hypoxia—a lack of oxygen.

10. Uric acid
Uric acid is one of the most common causes of high blood pressure and comes from high fructose consumption.

Here are the best remedies for inflammation:
•Kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, or a probiotic
•Vitamin D3
•Intermittent fasting and periodic prolonged fasting
•Cruciferous vegetables and salads
•Keto diet
•Carnivore diet
•Cold therapy
•Stretching and exercise
•Omega-3 fatty acids (cod liver oil, sardines, salmon)
