Anti-Inflammatory Herbs and Spices

Lately, I have been working with a lot of clients to incorporate an anti-inflammatory diet.  They have Arthritis, Ulcerative colitis, IBS, Chronic ulcers, Sinusitis, and many other conditions that cause pain and unpleasant symptoms.  I was thrilled when this study came out showing scientific evidence that adding herbs and spices to foods can significantly reduce inflammation markers!

The researchers used a particular blend of herbs and spices to create this effect.  These herbs and spices likely have their own unique benefits, but when they are combined together, they produce amazing reductions in inflammation!!!

Herbs and Spices have so many wonderful benefits!  They are shown to help reduce symptoms for many digestive conditions and they make our food interesting and colorful!

These baked chicken strips are a little spicy, but full of flavor and super delicious!
