My Internet Findings About Inflammation

Book about inflammation is tagged.

I am suffering one of the worse episodes of inflammation.  I've had the most severe itching ever.  I tried taking an antihistamine.  I tried using Aveeno with Menthol, which usually helps tamp down the itching.  I know hormones usually bring the inflammation along, but this time it was so unbearable.

I suspect a peanut allergy.  It might be mild.  The worse I think is that I ate a lot of chips at once.  I had fasted away from the chips for a few weeks.  I started craving them so I gave in, and that was a big mistake.

I found some websites about inflammation.  I found out about foods that cause inflammation.  I have found out about foods that fight inflammation.  I can say that I just ate some red grapes and raw almonds, and I feel a little better.  Also, I recently had a discussion with my husband about our need to get away from processed foods. 

I have to say that stress could have bought on a case of hives.  I know that stress aggravates my skin condition.  I had been stressing about my kids starting up home schooling again.  I feel better now because I have addressed the preparation of my children's learning material.  I have also finished my writing course; Yes!

I feel a deep sense of desperation.  I hate feeling like I want to crawl out of my skin.  I tell you, my readers, about this in case anyone feels like I do.  I am sincerely hoping that changing what I eat will help me.  I am going to comb through these websites in more detail because I think the food is the key to my healing.

God has created the raw foods for a reason.  The answer is in the fruits, vegetables, almonds, salmon, and coconut and olive oil.  You can comb through the websites and glean much about what inflammation is.  We, as a society, have gotten away from the healthy foods in favor of convenience.  We must move back to the basics in the food chain; I think that's the only way for us to recover our health.

I want all of us to get healthier.  That's why I am sharing my journey with you.  Everyday that I learn what affects my health is a step forward.  My prayer is that it will benefit you all that I am sharing this very personal journey.  May God open our eyes to the reality of the food that has been sold to us.

The following are the websites I found, which discuss inflammation:

*Information on inflammation--

*Foods to eat--

Well, thanks for reading about my thoughts on inflammation and my internet findings.  I hope this compilation of websites helps someone.

How about you, my readers?  How are you all doing?  Have you struggled with your health?  Are you suffering with inflammation?  I encourage you to consider bite-size changes in your life, gradually accumulating the better habits in your life.  If you need to improve your health, in any form, please ask God to help you.  Surely, He will, if you pray for His guidance.
