It can be very painful and upsetting to have inflammation and PF. In fact, in our support group and online community, people often ask, “Why me? Why this?!” Though there is still a lot more to discover about chronic inflammation and PF, there are countless researchers dedicated to answering the most difficult questions. We hope the research below brings you encouragement and empowerment with these topics. 

Research shows that dietary supplements can help. 

Several dietary supplements can help fight inflammation. Please consult your doctor to determine which options and doses are best for you. Some examples are described below:

Research shows that certain foods – known as “superfoods” – can help in amazing ways.

Even if you don’t take dietary supplements, you can find many nutrients naturally in healthy foods. For example, Vitamin D can be found in foods like fish, egg yolks, cheese, and soy milk. Additionally, Vitamin E can be found in certain foods too – like sunflower seeds, nuts, avocados, and green/leafy vegetables. Eating superfoods is a great way to improve or maintain your nutrition. 

Research shows that there are multiple ways to reduce inflammation. In addition to nutrition, getting exercise and regular physical activity is one important step to take. Interestingly, getting physical rest and enough sleep is just as important. Stress-reducing techniques, such as mindfulness, meditation, and yoga are well-researched ways to reduce inflammation too.
