Eat to overcome inflammation

High levels of inflammation may heighten your risk for Dementia, so choose whole, unprocessed, high-fiber foods to decrease those levels, advises Elisa Lottor, ND, PhD, author of Female and Forgetful (Warner, 2002). “Instead of drinking Orange juice, eat an Orange; instead of white bread, choose whole grain,” she says. A dearth of Omega-3 Fatty Acids can also lead to chronic inflammation. Boost omega-3s by eating fish—especially salmon, sardines, and mackerel—at least twice a week, suggests Alan C. Logan, ND, author of The Brain Diet (Cumberland House, 2007).
