The Benefits of a Low Inflammation Lifestyle
I get asked a lot by people who do not have health issues whether my anti-inflammatory ‘diet’ would benefit them in some way.
People often say ‘diet’ but the Eat Burn Sleep method is so much more than that. It is a holistic anti-inflammatory lifestyle that has more facets to it than just what we eat.
Diets are generally unsustainable and very restrictive. Diets can make you feel guilty if you have an ‘off’ day. Strict diets are generally not good for the body in the long run and some diets are dangerous. I am all about what is the best for your mental and physical health, now and in the future.
What Lifestyle Choice Is Best For Good Health?
A lifestyle choice that is best for good overall, long-term health for everyone would focus on mental, physical and emotional wellbeing; one that focuses on improving gut flora, detoxifying the liver and keeping inflammation at bay.
A sustainable lifestyle choice.
A good lifestyle choice is one that does not activate your weak genes, (hereditary chronic inflammation-related disease) in your DNA.
How Can You Change Your Lifestyle?
It can be rather daunting making a decision to change your lifestyle and very often, immediate barriers are formed before you even start. You can think about commitment issues, patience, giving up things that you love, how realistic it is, the challenges involved and whether it works for everyone around you.
The key to success is down to not aiming for perfection.
Aiming for perfection means that you set unrealistic goals that are really impossible to attain. That means that you are in a perpetual cycle of never feeling satisfied.
This will have you crumbling at the first hurdle and feeling guilty if you don’t stick to the new lifestyle plan rigidly. This is not good for sustainability nor your mental health. Life is to be enjoyed.
Rigid plans are not enjoyable and you can easily break them.
Striving for perfection means that we are so taken with achieving perfection that we miss out on life; being in the moment, living mindfully, breathing, enjoying what is around us.
Look at the whole picture and set realistic goals.
Forming new sustainable and enjoyable habits is key. Being supported with the right exercise and nutrition advice is important. Learning to make good choices when you are out to dinner, or switching off without worrying when on holiday, is essential.
Having the tools to know what is good for your body, mind and emotions, and enjoying the process and feeling the results is paramount to success.
If you enjoy coffee, steak or a glass of wine, to state at the beginning of a lifestyle choice that you can’t have them, makes you feel miserable. Let’s be honest.
When you are in charge, based on learning about what is best for you, and feeling and seeing the changes – and everyone around can see and feel it, too – this is empowerment and you know that it isn’t going to be a lifestyle that you will be changing anytime soon!
How Does Eat Burn Sleep Help With Optimum Health?
Eat Burn Sleep is a unique health education platform that is ultimately empowering; guiding people for long term optimum health, making second nature choices (when away from the plan) and having more autonomy over their health choices.
Following the 80/20 method, it is all about moderation, still having treats and enjoying life more.
Through the right anti-inflammatory diet for you, movement, neuroplasticity methods, forming long term science-backed habits while reducing inflammation, it can be physically noticed quite soon.
So many people that follow the Eat Burn Sleep anti-inflammatory lifestyle say that they look the best that they have ever looked. The reason for this is that they are feeling better.
When we lower chronic inflammation, even if we don’t have any health issues, the first thing that it does is increase our energy levels. Our energy levels are very low, if our diet has gut flora imbalance and lifestyle is stressful.
What Is Optimal Health?
Optimal health is not a standard. It is very subjective to your own circumstances; to how you feel, your age, your genetics, your microbiome that you were born with (and have developed over time).
Optimal health is dependant on where you live, your lifestyle demands and so on.
Why Do We Need Strong Gut Flora?
When it comes to diet, it is important to give our body the right nutrients to have strong gut flora. This impacts your immunity and neurotransmitters like serotonin, GABA, dopamine and melatonin.
It impacts sleep and hormones (whether you are a man or a woman) and as a result, your energy levels.
It also impacts your endocrine response. For example, if you have unstable sugar levels, that will affect your cortisol levels, adrenaline levels and your energy levels.
So, following a low inflammation diet and lifestyle, from a food standpoint, can have a huge impact on your energy levels.
Low inflammation lifestyles has a major impact on your mental wellbeing.
How Can You Fix Your Mental Health Naturally?
It is very important to focus on your gut health and reduce inflammation, through diet and lifestyle, when you want to improve your moods, reduce anxiety and depression and generally, mental health.
It is all linked because by improving gut flora, you are producing certain mood modulating hormones, mentioned above.
The way that you think changes.
60% neurotransmitters are allocated in the gut. 90% of serotonin is produced in the gut, and serotonin is responsible for wellbeing, happiness and reducing anxiety and mood swings.
It is a precursor for melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep.
Eat Burn Sleep improves your mental wellness, scientifically
How Do I Improve My Body Composition?
Many people see an improvement in body composition on this anti-inflammatory lifestyle.
The reason being, is that you are eating foods that are supporting the healing of soft tissues, your bones, your muscles and your skin.
Also, because the exercise on the platform is not inflammatory, the shift in better body composition is also healthier and doesn’t ‘invite’ conditions, in the long run.
A lot of people say that they get the ‘Eat Burn Sleep Glow’. It is all linked.
Your body will become stronger because of what you are feeding your body as well as the correct exercise that you are doing daily. Doing the right anti-inflammatory movement will greatly influence your energy levels and will influence liver detoxification pathways.
The anti-inflammatory program also influences your mental wellness, encourage you to go for a walk in the fresh air and getting vitamin D, along with guided meditations and lifestyle tips. Have you seen the videos to support optimum health and happiness?
The optimum health guidance will influence how you feel and look.
What Is The Ideal Healthy Lifestyle?
You don’t need to have a health condition to feel the incredible benefits of a low inflammation lifestyle.
A low inflammation lifestyle can make you feel better. You will have great energy levels, better mood, better body composition, sleep better, better skin and just feel like you are the best version on yourself.
This all is achieved quite quickly when you reduce chronic inflammation in your body (although I am not into quick fixes).
It is the long run that matters.
One super important piece of information to know, which I speak about all the time, is:
Chronic inflammation switches on your poor, weaker genes.
So, if there is family history of disease like heart attacks, autoimmune disease, diabetes, Alzheimers, hormone issues, cancer and so on, they all are linked to chronic inflammation.
Any disease that you cannot transmit, the expression of those genes will be dependant on the levels of chronic inflammation in your body.
Such a lifestyle plays a huge role in prevention.
How Do I Prevent Disease and Health Issues?
An anti-inflammatory lifestyle really helps people prevent potential health issues.
For example, like for me, because I have autoimmunity in my family, this is my weak gene.
When I had inflammation running through my body, I developed one autoimmune disease, and then I developed another autoimmune disease.
What I have realised is that once you have one autoimmune disease, you can have multiple autoimmune diseases. You can develop so many.
You can have hashimoto’s and multiple scelerosis or cancer and colitis because they are forms of autoimmunity.
How Do You Fix Autoimmune Disease Naturally?
How I went about fixing my autoimmune diseases (putting them into remission) naturally began with thinking about what I needed to do to stop the hemorrhage; stopping the bleed.
I was thinking about all of the medication that I was on and what it was doing to my body. It was like a building with cracks all over it and having medication was just putting plasters on the cracks.
It wasn’t fixing the foundations, so more cracks were appearing.
I needed to fix the foundations, so that more cracks didn’t appear.
Autoimmunity expresses itself pretty early in people’s lives generally. Other issues like cancer and heart attacks, generally express themselves later in life.
By then, it can almost be too late because they are so inflamed because they have been inflamed a long time.
Some people are lucky and have reversed their disease pretty quickly on this anti-inflammatory lifestyle.
It is the long journey that is important though, not the quick fix.
So, you can’t just go on a low inflammation diet for a while and that will sort it out quickly. It isn’t just diet, remember and it can take some time to see results, so prevention side is huge.
There is so much misinformation when it comes to health, out there.
How Do You Take Care of Your Body When You’re Sick?
Frankly, if I had found an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle when I was sick, it would have saved quite a few years of pain.
That is why I created the Eat Burn Sleep anti-inflammatory lifestyle.
It isn’t just for when you are sick, though. This is the best diet and lifestyle to keep sickness at bay; keeping your body and mind free from inflammation.
I am on a mission to ensure that everyone is living at their optimum health, for now and for the future, physically and mentally.

In the meantime, keep healthy, keep happy and keep the inflammation down.
I hope that you have a wonderful day!
