8. Dark Circles And Bags Under The Eyes

If you are getting plenty of sleep but find that you are suffering from those ugly dark under eye bags or circles, this could be due to low level, chronic inflammation. Reduce your inflammation level by consuming more probiotics. You can get these healthy, inflammation fighting, good bacteria through fermented foods, such as sauerkraut, pickles, and miso, or through yogurt that contains live, active cultures.


9. Constant Nasal Problems

If you don’t have allergies, but find that you constantly have a stuffy nose or a runny nose, this is most likely due to inflammation. This is another inflammation problem that can be solved through omega-3 consumption. Eat fatty fish at least twice a week (try trout or halibut for a change from salmon) or consume a good quality fish oil or krill oil supplement after speaking with your doctor about the proper dosage.


10. Itchy Eyes Or Ears

If you feel as through your ears or eyes have a constant itchy feeling that won’t go away, it could be due to allergies. However, if you and your doctor have ruled out allergies, it could very well be due to inflammation. Be absolutely certain that you have removed all GMO and non-organic foods from your diet. This includes high fructose corn syrup, soy beans, and most vegetable oils such as corn oil, cottonseed oil, canola oil, or soybean oil. All of these are GMO products, well-known for causing inflammation.


11. Cough And/or Sore Throat

The most obvious source of most nagging coughs or sore throats is due to a virus of some sort or a bacterial infection. If you have neither of these and most home remedies you have tried do not give you relief, try eating more leafy green vegetables and drinking at least one green juice each day. Try alfalfa or wheatgrass green juices for super anti-inflammatory power and tons of nutrition in one healthy glass.


12. Frequent Diarrhea

All sorts of digestive problems can cause diarrhea. This symptom is also common with other digestive disease such as Crohn’s disease or IBD, but this is also a sign of chronic inflammation. Give an allergen-free diet a chance and see if this solves the problem. Avoid common allergens such as gluten, dairy, nightshade vegetables, and peanuts.


13. Skin Issues

IF you suffer from rough, scaly, or itchy skin, you could have psoriasis or eczema. Alternatively, you could also have chronic inflammation. One method that is known to increase inflammation in the body is by cooking foods in a microwave. You should avoid reheating foods or cooking foods in this manner. If your skin problem persists, please see a dermatologist.


14. Constipation

Just as annoying as diarrhea can be, constipation can be just as irritating. If you have tried all the usual methods, like drinking more water, avoiding the foods that cause constipation, eating more fruits and vegetables, doing more exercises, but still suffer from frequent constipation, you could be suffering from inflammation. Cut out all inflammation causing cooking oils that are filled with trans-fats and GMO products such as corn oil, soy bean oil, and canola oil. Use only virgin olive oil, palm oil, or coconut oil to fight inflammation throughout the body.
