Everybody was Inflammation Fighting

Dr. Devin talks about the foods that cause inflammation. Inflammation causes pain in the short term and autoimmune disease in the long term. If you are in pain – stop eating these foods now. Welcome to Dr. Devin’s Wellness Wednesday Workshop where my goal is to help you maintain or improve your active lifestyle. We will answer these questions today:

  1. What is the difference between acute and chronic inflammation?
  2. Are there any diseases associated with long-term chronic inflammation?
  3. C2 controls what?
  4. What foods cause inflammation?
