Foods that will help lower your inflammation level include organic strawberries, avocados, blackberries, dark green vegetables, cherries, blueberries, parsley, and garlic.


2. Whole Foods

No, we don’t mean the supermarket, but rather whole foods that are minimally processed. This means eating as many fresh, organic raw vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, and seeds as you can.
