I bet you all know about the traditional, and very industry- influenced, alimentary pyramid. But I think this is a more interesting pyramid that would boost your health out of the roof, and the best part, this is no diet at all, but a lifestyle, since it has become clear these days that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer’s disease. Learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process is the best strategy for containing it and reducing the risk of long-term diseases.
The pyramid helps you as a guide on the foods you need to ingest the most that will provide you steady energy and ample vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, dietary fiber, and protective phytonutrients, also the foods you should avoid, in order to prevent local redness, heat, swelling and pain.
