If I was to summarise our conversation in a dietary way of life – it would be the Mediterranean diet. As we alluded to in our conversation, the Mediterranean diet is known to be anti-inflammatory, and now you have an understanding of what we mean by anti-inflammation.
Inflammation isn’t something that we need to radically remove entirely, its use in human biology needs to be understood. But in the context of our modern lifestyles we are usually out of balance.
