3. Headaches

This symptom is so vague it can apply to many different diseases; however, it is also a symptom of low grade, chronic inflammation. Try eating more antioxidant rich foods or foods that have been enriched with additional antioxidants. Focus on eating plenty of green vegetables, purple sweet potatoes, and enriched sources of antioxidants, such as coffee or tea.


4. Excessive Belching

Like excessive gas, this one can be quite embarrassing and annoying as well. Although this symptom is also indicative of various stomach ailments, many times it is simply due to inflammation of the digestive system. Consuming more omega-3’s can often help stop inflammation in the stomach and intestines. Eat at least two servings of fresh fish each day. Fatty, cold water species such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines are the good fish to eat, because they are the terrific sources of omega-3s. Alternately, you can consume an omega-3 fish or krill oil supplement, but please check with your doctor for the proper dosage for your situation.


5. Chills Or Unexplained Fevers

Most people think that unexplained fevers, usually of short duration, or frequent chills are a sign of an oncoming cold or flu virus. Sometimes this is the case, but more often than not, it is a sign of inflammation. If you suffer from frequent bouts of unexplained fevers or fever-like symptoms, such as chills, try removing all sources of refined sugar, especially high fructose corn syrup, from your diet.


6. Burning Skin

This is a symptom to which you should pay attention. If you feel a burning sensation on your skin, or a prickling feeling like pins and needles, especially on the feet, this could be a sign of diabetes. If you are experiencing these feelings, please see your doctor immediately. However, if your doctor says that you are not diabetic, then you are most likely feeling the effects of inflammation. For this symptom, try getting more vitamin D. This is difficult to get through food sources, but eating more fish can help you get the vitamin D you need. The best source of natural vitamin D, however, is plain old sunshine. Our bodies convert sunshine into vitamin D. Get 20 to 30 minutes of natural sunlight each day. If you cannot do this for whatever reason, ask your doctor about a vitamin D supplement.


7. Lack Of Appetite

If you have a sudden loss of appetite, you should see your doctor to be certain that you do not have another type of health problem. If you doctor does not find any real cause for this symptom, you can stop the inflammation that is probably the root cause by adding more anti-inflammatory spices to your diet. The best anti-inflammatory spices are rosemary, oregano, garlic, ginger, and the king of anti-inflammatories: turmeric.
