INFLAMMATION and GUIDELINES FOR AN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET...
The main reason people seek a physician's advice is for pain relief. Although there are numerous herbal and nutritional treatments to reduce pain and inflammation, the main naturopathic defenses are foods. By paying attention to the foods that you eat, you can reduce the occurrence of pain and inflammation.
1. Eliminate Pro-Inflammatory Foods
2. Implement a Plant Based Diet
3. Nutritional Supplements
4. Move That Body!
Let this guideline for an anti-inflammatory diet be a part of your natural management for pain and inflammation.
Get Tested: If you are concerned about your level of inflammation, you may be interested to know that there is an in-home test that will determine if you are taking enough anti-oxidants to slow down the inflammatory process and reduce cellular damage. It also checks to determine the nutritional status of your liver to remove toxins effectively. More importantly, this test will determine your level of nutritional balance. You can also get tested for food allergies. It will tell you what foods to avoid and what you can do to reduce their effects.
To learn more about these lab tests, contact the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario for a referral to a naturopath nearest to you - visit http://www.ccnm.edu/home

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
