What exactly is inflammation, and how do the foods we eat play a role in it?

In this episode with Ocean Robbins, our conversation centers around an anti-inflammatory diet, the overwhelming health benefits of this lifestyle, and the top foods to eat to support it. Ocean explores the key factors that contribute to inflammation and, if left unaddressed, the long-term implications of chronic cases.

It surprises people to know that inflammation is actually a naturally occurring reaction in the body. This process allows the body to heal itself when we get a cut, bump, or bruise. What isn’t normal, or isn’t ideal, is long-term chronic inflammation. Our bodies aren’t built to withstand that kind of pressure, and often this results in the development of chronic disease. That’s why it’s essential that we begin to shift towards an anti-inflammatory diet.

Ocean Robbins is a passionate advocate of food as medicine. Alongside his father, John Robbins, he is the founder of Food Revolution Network, an online-based education and advocacy-driven organization committed to healthy, ethical, sustainable food for all.
