PODCAST: Eating for Inflammation with Rupy Aujla from the Doctors Kitchen


I went back to have a second conversation with Dr Rupy Aujla from The Doctors Kitchen after our hugely successful discussion on Eating for Immunity back in January.

In this podcast we talk about inflammation as a concept – why it’s becoming so popular in the medical literature and why it’s so relevant to a host of different medical specialties.

 you can listen to the podcast here.

We cover the following

  • What do we mean by inflammation?

  • The benefits of inflammation

  • Symptoms of inflammation imbalance

  • How we measure inflammation

  • Stopping the inflammation triggers

  • The microbiome and inflammation

  • Obesity and inflammation imbalance

  • Sugar and inflammation

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.
