Dr Kaycee Reyes of Luminisce Clinics shares how to reset your family’s lifestyle with a nutritious anti-inflammatory diet

When you’re a parent, you’ve always got lots on your mind. Whether it’s dealing with the chaos that is online learning or breaking the bad news about ECQ to our kids, it’s a never ending job! Our top tip? Take one worry off your plate by embracing an anti-inflammatory diet. It’s a healthier choice and your best defense during these trying times. We spoke to Dr Kaycee Reyes of Luminisce Clinics to get the lowdown on the anti-inflammatory diet and why more families need to get on it.

Why an anti-inflammatory diet?

In times where nutrition and health is a top priority, an anti-inflammatory diet is worth considering. Dr Kaycee explains that inflammation affects our body’s overall performance. When we indulge in too much inflammation-causing foods — think sweets, processed meats, shortening — it could have negative consequences. We’re talking possible major diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression and Alzheimer’s. And yes, some of these conditions are linked as co-morbidities for COVID-19.

What is inflammation?

“The immune system becomes activated when your body recognizes anything that is foreign. That includes invading microbe, plant pollen, or chemicals. It often triggers a process called inflammation which protects the body from these invaders,” Dr Kaycee shares. It can be prevented by eating food that is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols such as fruits and leafy green vegetables. Another source? Turmeric, ginger and garlic — the biggest contributors in any anti-inflammatory diet.
