Are you throwing all your best movement mojo at a patient and still striking out? It could be because your patients are inflamed. Chronic inflamation is not a disease, but a silent mechanistic process. It is a major threat to health and longevity, and carries a poor prognosis for disease specific morbidity and mortality.
While many MSK professionals are happy to acknowledge the nervous system role in modulating MSK pathology, they blatantly ignore the brain-gut connection. Systemic inflammation can dinimish your MSK outcomes. So how can MSK professionals help clients who are inflamed? Dr. Kristina Campione, DC, MS, shares six simple rules to live by that you can share with your clients to implement an anti-inflammatory diet and help them with chronic inflammation.
Dr. Campione's 6 Simple Rules to Live By
- Put fat, fiber, protein, and produce on every plate
- Stop counting calories and start counting ingredients
- Sweeten and salt your food yourself
- You can't supplement your way out of a crappy diet
- Simple is sustainable
- Eat better, not less
