If you are dealing with chronic pain or arthritis there are foods you should not eat because it can cause inflammation in the body. Research shows that people over 50 have a harder time reducing inflammation in the body, so it is important to watch what you eat. Here are a few foods you should stay away from to help keep inflammation levels low. Staying away from refined carbs (or anything with gluten) can help to keep inflammation levels low. This means no more bagels, muffins, pastries or pastas. French fries or other processed foods are also something you want to stay away from. Make sure you are staying away from fast foods as well as foods that are packaged. Check and read labels to ensure there are no added preservatives.
Taking over the counter medications can be helpful to reduce pain but it isn’t correcting the issue or helping reduce inflammation.

Watching your diet as well as taking other natural remedies such as getting adjusted and exercise can help to keep inflammation levels low.
