Chronic inflammation is a precursor to a myriad of diseases and illnesses, and the foods and lifestyle choices we make are largely to blame. Perhaps the biggest challenge with inflammation is you cannot see it, so it can be a “silent killer,” wreaking havoc without you even aware of what’s going on.
This week’s guest on the Yoga Talk Show hopes to change all that—and more.
Listen & Learn:
- Why internal inflammation can contribute (or even cause) weight gain, aging and disease
- How a simple and cheap C-Reactive Protein test can tell you if this is a problem or not
- How some of the most common foods create a negative reaction inside our bodies
- Why arthritis, skin problems, and digestive issues might be linked to chronic inflammation
- There are two types of inflammation: chronic and short-term/acute
- How your microbiome health is crucial to your health
- Why you should avoid Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs and antibiotics

If you’re a vegetarian, live a high-stress lifestyle and/or are over 50 years of age, there’s a very good chance you need to supplement with vitamin B12. B12 is one of the few vitamins that our body doesn’t produce on its own. If you don’t eat or supplement with B12, you will develop a deficiency that could lead to anemia, nerve damage, mood and mental health problems.
