Relieve RA with This Anti-Inflammatory Diet

A Note from Leisa Hart:

I was diagnosed with RA in my early 40's. I have found an anti-inflammatory diet to be a key component in pain relief. If you suffer from RA or any inflammatory disease, I hope you'll find this article useful!

The human body uses inflammation to help fight illness and also protect areas from further harm. In most cases, inflammation is a necessary part of the healing process. However, some medical conditions cause faulty inflammatory responses. These are called chronic inflammatory diseases.

One of the best measures a person can take to prevent or reduce inflammation is to try an anti-inflammatory diet. An anti-inflammatory diet involves eating certain foods and avoiding others in order to minimize the symptoms of chronic inflammatory diseases.

You likely know me from my Buns of Steel® workouts, and have the impression that my life is all smiles and no stress. I've been truly blessed by the tremendous success of my career with Warner Brothers and then owning my own Yoga Studio, but it all came with a price. Along the way, I took on far too much and hit many road blocks that took a hazardous toll on my health -  physically and spiritually.  The storm was a mix of a hip fracture, back surgery, an RA (rheumatoid arthritis) diagnosis, chronic pain, sleep deprivation and anxiety.  I had to take a huge step back and reevaluate my my path. I had to slow down. Tremendously. And not even by choice, but rather survival. Now, I'm proud to say that I've weathered the storm and am stronger than I've ever been. I've learned SO much along the way and am honored that you're here for me to share my journey of self love, stress & toxin reduction, anti-inflammatory nutrition, simple fitness routines & more! #EatingBetter #Diet #Nutrition #Exercise #bunsofsteel #LeisaHart #Fitness #CleanEating #Food #Cooking #MyWellnessbyNature #HomeandLifestyleTV #TVhost #Television #Celebrity
