Three anti-inflammatory recipes
Eating a balanced, mostly alkaline diet has been shown to help fight inflammation. Three sweet examples.
Inflammatory diseases such as rheumatism or arthritis are widespread. The causes are multiple. In addition to genetic factors, diet also plays a key role. research revealedthat acidic foods promote inflammation, while alkaline foods stop it. Salt does not refer to the taste, but to whether or not acid is produced in the metabolism. This is the case, for example, with meat, grains and dairy products or sweets. On the other hand, fruits and vegetables, nuts or herbs have a basic effect.
Saskia Johanna Rosenow experienced in her own body how an alkaline diet can affect well-being: she had recurring inflammation for years until she finally changed her diet. In the book “Anti-Inflammation Kitchen – Finally healthy & fit with alkaline nutrition” (Edel Verlag), this explains what it looks like today. There, he also shares some of his favorite recipes. There are three here.
