Anti-Inflammatory Foods, Herbs and Spices

Many people take prescription drugs and are unable to take certain supplements, or even eat certain foods. Also, many diseases and disorders are at least partially involved in inflammation. Those who take prescription blood thinners or lubricators, blood pressure drugs, immuno-suppressant drugs, anti-depressants, anti-microbials, antibiotics, etc., may be unable to use many of the supplements that could help to resolve their health issues; however, most can consume proper foods, as long as they clear them through their doctor and pharmacist.

NOTE: Those taking prescription blood thinners may incur bruising, bleeding or other reaction from consuming large amounts of papaya, pineapple, garlic, cayenne and ginger. Your blood may clot too much from the vitamin K in broccoli, spinach and other greens. If you have routine blood checks to stabilize your blood’s viscosity, be sure that you consume the same amounts of such foods from one test to the next, so that your tests are not skewed one way or another. Your doctor and/or pharmacist should advise you of this. If you have any questions or concerns with your diet, be sure to discuss it with your doctor and/or pharmacist before making any changes.
