Stay Healthy

As we learn more about inflammation, we'll have a better understanding of how to manage it. But there are three simple ways you can start fighting it today.

  • Shed excess pounds. Losing just 5 percent of your body weight can lower your risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, mainly because you're losing the visceral abdominal fat that pumps out the most inflammatory triggers, says Davis.
  • Get moving. Exercise by itself is linked to lower levels of inflammation, probably because it tends to burn inflammatory flab from your gut first, Davis says. A study published in the journal Circulation in 2002 showed a correlation between higher fitness capacities in women and lower inflammation levels.
  • Adjust your diet. Certain foods can directly affect whether your inflammation dial is set to simmer or is turned off.
