Try these foods to help fight inflammatory conditions in your body and improve your health.

  1. Whole grains
  2. Dark, leafy greens
  3. Nuts
  4. Low-fat dairy
  5. Peppers
  6. Tomatoes
  7. Beets
  8. Ginger and turmeric
  9. Garlic and onions
  10. Olive oil
  11. Berries and tart cherries

Always consult your doctor before changing your diet to manage an inflammatory condition.
