A SK THE EXPER TS By Patrick C. Toy, M.D.

Successful Joint Replacement + fighting obesity, diabetes, and heart disease Nearly 8 million Americans currently live with implants from hip or knee replacement surgery. Total joint arthroplasty, the technical term for joint replacement, continues to help improve the quality of life for middle-age individuals and senior adults who suffer from limitations commonly associated with osteoarthritis: chronic pain, reduced range of motion and ultimately, a sedentary lifestyle. Half of all patients who receive new joints now are under age 65, which represents a significant change from even a decade ago. Problems associated with reduced mobility can lead to or worsen other more serious complications, namely diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the number of total joint surgeries nationally is projected to grow by nearly 700% by 2030. Additionally, nearly half of all American adults develop knee osteoarthritis during their lifetime, and more than 90% of people who have hip or knee replacement surgery experience a dramatic reduction in pain in the affected joint according to studies. Despite such great results and significant innovation in surgical techniques in recent years, many patients continue to live through pain and elect to not have surgery. An unfortunate cycle often causes a patient to delay having much-needed joint replacement surgery. A lack of mobility reduces activity, which leads to weight gain and significant health problems such as uncontrolled blood pressure, cardiac disease, or uncontrolled diabetes—all preventing a success surgery. Many patients find they can’t overcome these problems to a great enough degree to have surgery because their joints hurt too much to increase their level of exercise. AAOS research also shows that obesity is one of the most common diseases that adversely affects bone and joint health. There is hope, however, for individuals who want to get healthy enough to undergo joint replacement surgery and become more active after they complete physical therapy and rehabilitation. Here are some of the most important and effective things patients should do when preparing for joint replacement:


MAKE SIMPLE CHANGES TO YOUR DIET Eliminate or greatly reduce processed foods by focusing on whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, and lean meat high in protein. Consider ditching sugary drinks and alcohol, and up your water intake. To satiate cravings for sweet drinks, limit it to fruit juices or energy drinks and only drink one per day. Weight loss starts with a healthy diet, and typically patients should have a Body Mass Index (BMI) under 40 for optimal surgical outcomes.

KICK THE SMOKING HABIT Smoking cessation is one of the most important ways to enhance quality of life and ensure a successful surgery. Though difficult, it will help improve heart and lung functions and limit the likelihood of complications. Cutting out high risk factors like smoking reduces the odds of having problems during or after an operation.

BEGIN A LIGHT EXERCISE PROGRAM Even though it may be difficult at first, starting a low-resistance, low-stress exercise routine can improve cardiovascular function enough to withstand the rigors of major surgery and the recovery afterward. Pool therapy is an excellent way to increase pulse rate and improve fitness without putting too much stress on bad joints. Hydrotherapy, such as walking, swimming, or static exercises (such as body squats) in a pool, will provide a nice workout without pressuring joints.

FIND A PHYSICIAN THAT OFFERS A “PRE-HAB” PROGRAM Rehab is critical after surgery on muscles or bones. A comprehensive pre-habilitation program is just as vital to helping prepare your body and mind for surgery. Understanding what to expect after surgery, knowing the types of alterations you should make before and after surgery, and informing family, friends, and caretakers of how they can help your recovery is a cornerstone of a well-rounded approach to surgery. Making basic lifestyle modifications can help reverse the cycle of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease in order to undergo total joint replacement surgery and begin a healthier, more active life free of pain. For more information about total joint replacement and how you can have same-day surgery to begin recovery at home, call Dr. Patrick Toy with Campbell Clinic at 901.759.5537 or visit

There comes a time as your marathon nears there is seemingly nothing else you can do. You have put in countless miles in the wee hours of morning, the dark, and the rain. Your friends are tired of hearing you can’t go out for a drink because you are training. You’ve started checking the projected weather forecast 10 days out. You have tapered and rested and eaten all the carbs. Before you hand your big day over to fate, there are some things to keep in mind to make sure the race lives up to your expectations.

REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE OF MARATHONING: NOTHING NEW ON RACE DAY. • Everything you wear on race day should have been worn before on a long run. That cute shirt you bought at the expo? Save it for after the marathon. New clothes and shoes can lead to blisters or chafing. Stick with what you know so there are no surprises during the race. • The golden rule also applies to hydration and nutrition. Do not experiment with something new because you think it will improve your race. Stick to the same breakfast on race day that you had before your long runs. Eat similar foods the night before as well. During the race, use the same gels and drinks you used during training. Mile 20 is not the time to find out your stomach will not tolerate something new.

TRUST YOUR TRAINING. REALLY, REALLY TRUST IT. • Those Saturday morning long runs? The mid-week speed work? The easy runs with friends? They all had a point—to get you to the start line ready to run. You cannot cram for a marathon. Know that all the miles you’ve run over the past months prepared you for this day. • Your taper is part of your training. Trust it. Remember how I said you can’t cram for a marathon? You can’t cram for a marathon. Squeezing in “just one more long run” a week before your race is only going to make you tired. Your taper should be a time to recover from the months of training so you arrive at the race rested. Respect the taper.


Do you have questions about getting started or finding a plan to work for you? Stop in and talk to anyone on our staff. We’ll be happy to help!

PREPARE YOURSELF MENTALLY. • Imagine all possible scenarios. There will be rough spots, but how you deal with them will make the difference. Have a mantra to repeat to get you through them. Fatigue will hit at some point. Be prepared to fight it when it does. Don’t think of the miles ahead, instead try to pass the next person or run to the next aid station. Marathons are as challenging mentally as they are physically. • H  ave a race day goal. Set an A goal for the perfectly executed race, but also have a B goal in mind if things don’t go exactly as planned. Temperature, wind, and hills will make things harder and slower; adjust your expectations accordingly. Visualize reaching your goal and crossing the finish line in celebration.

HAVE A PLAN. • If you are traveling to a race, make a list and start packing early. Triple check that you have everything you need so that you do not have to resort to breaking the rule of nothing new. Check the weather forecast so that you can adequately plan your race outfit. • M  ake sure you know how you’re getting to the race and where you’ll park. Arrive early. There are certain things in life you don’t want to be late for—the start of your race is one of these. It is better to have a little extra time to go to the bathroom, check your bag, and find your spot on the start line. As race day looms, know that nerves are part of it. Having a plan and believing in the work you’ve done will get you to the start line in great shape—mentally and physically. Remember the golden rule of marathoning: Trust your training and taper, eat all the carbs, and then go check that weather forecast one more time. You never know… it might have changed.

Rachel Randall is the go-to girl for all marketing, media, and events at Fleet Feet Sports. She has run more marathons that she can count, and will be joining many of you on the start line of the 2016 St. Jude Marathon Weekend and the 2017 New York City Marathon.

A Lifestyle of Health How Dr. Julia Kate Webster manages her Type I diabetes By Christin Yates. Photo by Tindall Stephens.

At age 12, DR. JULIE KATE WEBSTER was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and had to adapt to eating healthy and exercising. Her family supported her new lifestyle, and her mother altered how she cooked to meet her daughter’s needs. Through middle and high school, Julie Kate danced with Ballet Memphis, which kept her in shape. She continued to dance while attending Vanderbilt University, where she was introduced to aerobics and running. During the college summers, Julie Kate worked as a researcher at the University of Tennessee to find a cure for diabetes. After undergrad she moved to Chicago, where she earned a Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine and completed her residency.

In addition to exercise, eating a balanced diet is key to managing Julie Kate’s disease, which she has done by counting carbs and fats. However, Julie Kate realized that eating whole foods is the best practice for anyone wanting to be healthy, with or without diabetes. “I cook at home as often as I can so I know what’s going in to my food,” she says. Julie Kate tends to stick to fruits, vegetables, and healthy meats and fats, avoiding processed food as much as possible. Julie Kate and Chad now have two children: Chloe, a freshman at St. Mary’s, and Wilson, a sixth-grader at St. Louis School. “Whether it’s running a race together on the weekend or going hiking while we’re on vacation, we try to stay active and healthy as a family, which is something I also try to teach my patients.” Chad completed his first mini triathlon in 2017, Chloe is currently training for the St. Jude half marathon, and Wilson recently competed at the state championship for cross country.

“You can be healthy if you choose to be healthy.”

“The only excuse I would allow myself for not studying was to exercise,” Julie Kate says. While in graduate school, she gained an appreciation for running, since she could do the sport at anytime or any place. School was also where she met her future husband, Dr. Chad Webster, an avid runner as well.

The couple moved back to Memphis in 2003 and opened their practice, Mid-south Foot and Ankle Specialists. “Foot problems are a common complication of diabetes,” says Julie Kate. “I enjoy being able to relate to my patients and help them live healthier lives despite having diabetes.”


Since being diagnosed, 45-year-old Julie Kate hasn’t had any complications from her diabetes. She wears an insulin pump and checks her blood sugar 6-8 times per day to keep it regulated. “It’s all about staying active,” says Julie Kate. “I have to find time to exercise and eat healthy in order to keep my diabetes under control.”

Sugar Run 5K Dr. Julie Kate Webster is co-founder of the Sugar Run 5k. The 11th annual event is on November 11 and raises money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Fund A Cure. All contributions to Fund A Cure are 100% taxdeductible and go directly toward diabetes research.

Sweat, Stretch, and Laugh:

YOGA WITH GOATS Yoga on the Farm combines yoga and goats—and it’s amazing THE WORKOUT Yoga classes are held once a month on a large grassy area at the Sourek’s farm. Each class is between 45-60 minutes. In the first 30-40 minutes, Becca guides participants through a series of poses known as Ashtanga yoga. The goats are brought out during the cool down, adding an additional element of calm, nature, and fun. Participants have the option of putting food on their mats to give them control over how much interaction they have with the goats. Iris, a goat, particularly enjoys performing the dolphin pose while eating off the backs of posing yoga students. “It’s lighthearted, it’s playful, it’s for all ability levels,” Becca says. “You might sweat a little bit, you’ll definitely stretch a little bit, and definitely leave feeling more relaxed and happy.” The classes are beginner friendly, and Becca takes time to ensure everyone can see the poses, helping individuals make adjustments as needed.



Jackie and Pete Sourek both work full-time jobs in Memphis but live on a five-acre farmstead just 40 minutes east in Rossville. They enjoy the balance of working in the city and raising animals on their farm. Pete spent time on his grandfather’s dairy farm as a child, which may have been a factor when deciding what to do with their land.

Jackie saw videos on Facebook of people doing yoga with goats. At first she thought it was a fad that would fade. When the idea grew in popularity, and she realized they had the space, the goats, and a yoga teacher.

“Pete suggested we get goats to eat the extra brush,” Jackie says. “We bought two or three Nigerian dwarf goats, and we’ve really loved having them. They’re so fun.”

After nearly 20 years of experience, yoga has taught Becca to be open minded, which helped her embrace the idea of incorporating goats.

Jackie’s yoga instructor, Becca Jones, at first said, “You want me to do what?”

Participants need only bring a yoga mat and an open mind, though blocks and bands are encouraged if more advanced positions or modifications are desired. Wear comfortable clothing. The next Yoga on the Farm class is Saturday, Nov. 18 at 9:30 am. The class is $15, including a tour of the farm. Payments can be made in cash or through PayPal. Check their Facebook page or email for information.

George Woodbury Jr. M.D. Rheumatology and Dermatology Associates PC celebrated its 24th birthday June 13th 2017 at our office at 8143 Walnut Grove Road, in Cordova TN. I’d like to comment upon who we are, and what we’re about. We are a two-physician practice dedicated to helping people to feel better about themselves and to function better at home and at work. The dermatology end of the company is chaired by yours truly – George Woodbury Jr. M.D. I decided to enter dermatology when in my third year of medical school at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, in 1986. I liked the fact that the specialty involved people of all ages, and that is used a combination of medical approaches and surgical approaches. Many of the therapies used by the specialty were also pretty effective in helping people to get better. I also had some perspective on the specialty, having grown up in a dermatology and ophthalmology household, my mother Linda Woodbury MD having been a dermatologist since 1965 – and my dad George Woodbury Sr. – having enjoyed the practice of ophthalmology – medical and surgical treatment of the eye just about a long. My family gave me an idea what life in the world of medicine was all about. My life changed pretty dramatically after I met my wife Cathy Chapman MD at the University of Chicago Medical School. We fast became friends, then fell in love and married the day after she graduated medical school in 1988. We came to Memphis after Dr. Chapman completed her specialty training in rheumatology – which is the study of arthritis and connective tissue diseases like lupus and scleroderma – at Strong Memorial Hospital, in Rochester New York – in 1993. We’ve been practicing together in Cordova TN since 1993.

We participate in a spectrum of medical organizations, Dr. Chapman being a member of the American College of Rheumatology and myself a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, as well as the Tennessee Medical Association and the Memphis Medical Society. My dermatology practice includes both medical and surgical treatments for common skin conditions – acne, seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis, and both precancerous and cancerous skin lesions, including melanoma, basal cell skin cancer, and squamous cell skin cancer. I perform Mohs surgery – Mohs Micrographic Surgery – for skin cancer – to allow me to check the margins while the patient is having the surgery. I also offer both sterile and clean surgeries in the office. And I offer allergy patch testing to try to identify what chemicals a person may be allergic to. I use systemic therapies for severe skin conditions – including Accutane (isotretinoin) for severe or resistant acne, and biological injections for psoriasis. These therapies help to improve patient’s self-image, a key factor in their success in life. So it’s all about helping people to heal both medically and emotionally. Rheumatology is the study of conditions of the connective tissues of the body – focusing particularly upon the joints – but also covering the tendons and ligaments. And Rheumatologists – like Dr. Cathy Chapman in our practice here in Cordova – are all about keeping people able to function in their lives to the fullest of their capacity.

Dr. Chapman and I practice different medical specialties, but our practice philosophy is similar: strong patient engagement. We believe that a patient who has a deeper understanding of the disease is better able improve quicker. Better patient understanding supports a solid treatment plan.

Dr. Chapman uses systemic therapies to help her patients with rheumatoid arthritis and connective tissue diseases like lupus and psoriatic arthritis. She offers joint ultrasound, as well as in-office X-rays and labwork. Since there are over 300 separate diseases in rheumatology, these tests greatly help Dr. Chapman to diagnose joint conditions and disorders and also to measure a patient’s progress.

We spent five years – between 1996 and 2001 – designing our own computer system at Rheumatology and Dermatology Associates – to enable us to become paper-free – thereby saving time that we could spend with patients. Our system is called

So welcome to Rheumatology and Dermatology PC, as we enter our 25th year in Memphis. We look forward to working with you.

Taylor Somerville, siblings Caroline, & Cole Giovannetti hang tough By Christin Yates. Photo by Philip Murphy.

Iron Tribers Take on World’s Toughest Mudder raising money for the Jason Motte Foundation In January, Cole Giovannetti decided he wanted a long-term goal to achieve in 2017. An Ironman finisher with a passion for long distance races with year-long training cycles, he discovered the World’s Toughest Mudder, a 24-hour race in November 2017.


Before his wife had a chance to talk him out of it, Cole reached out to several others who attend Iron Tribe Fitness classes with him. He got a couple others on board—his sister, Caroline Giovannetti, and longtime training partner, Taylor Somerville. They teamed up to complete a qualifying race in April that took place from 12-8 am. Each ran over 25 miles in that eight-hour

period, successfully qualifying for the big race in November

The Training Cole, 36, and Taylor, 38, met through Iron Tribe classes two years ago. Caroline, 30, started Iron Tribe Fitness about six months later after she and Taylor started dating. “Our relationship kindled through fitness,” she says. All three have their own approach to training, but they usually do long runs together on the weekends and go to River Fit in Tom Lee Park to get in hills, burpees, and stairs. Cole’s workout routine is made up of about 90% running and 10% strength training. He takes a typical marathon training plan and tweaks it to meet the demands of longer races. Leading up to

the World’s Toughest Mudder in November, he does back-to-back 10- or 12-mile runs on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesdays he does strength training and goes to an Iron Tribe Fitness class. Thursday is another 10-miler, followed by back-to-back long runs over the weekend. Recently he did a 13-mile run the night before the Chicago Marathon, which he used as a training run for the 24-hour race. Taylor does more high intensity interval training, similar to Iron Tribe Fitness classes, several days a week and incorporates strength work with squats and deadlifts into his routine. He does yoga and a track workout once a week. Saturdays he typically runs for 3-5 hours at Shelby Forest, followed by a short run on Sunday morning. While he admits he didn’t train specifically for the 8-hour race in April, his fitness base of Iron Tribe and strength training helped him finish strong.

COVER PROFILE Caroline believes in changing up her fitness routine to keep it interesting. She runs to Iron Tribe Fitness four days per week, does the workout, and runs home. She also does a long run on Wednesday mornings with a group. On weekends she changes it up between running, Iron Tribe, River Fit, and trail runs at Shelby Farms. Cole, Taylor, and Caroline completed another Tough Mudder race in September. As a busy attorney, Caroline has had to scale back her training since then because of work and travel commitments. However, she will be Cole and Taylor’s “Pit Chief” for the World’s Toughest Mudder. As Cole and Taylor complete each 5-mile loop, she will be on the sidelines with food, extra clothes, fluids, etc. to help them meet their goal.

Their Diet

Get started with Iron Tribe! The 45-minute “PUSH” class offers a high-intensity workout that focuses on simple movements to burn calories, build lean muscle, and improve overall conditioning. For more information visit or call 901.590.2095

Taylor and Caroline eat healthy during the week and allow indulges on the weekends. Breakfast is usually eggs or yogurt with granola followed by protein and/or a salad for lunch. Dinner is vegetables, meat, and healthy carbs. Caroline is new to counting macros and snacks on protein bars or Larabars to ensure enough protein and healthy fats in her diet. With two young children at home who like snacks and Chick-fil-A, Cole admits his diet isn’t as strict. Part of his love of running is to balance his love for food, including Gibson’s Donuts and Garibaldi’s Pizza.

Running for a Reason Cole and Taylor are running the World’s Toughest Mudder to raise money for the Jason Motte Foundation. With a mission to Strike Out Cancer, the foundation provides comfort and care where there is a need for those affected, directly or indirectly, by cancers of all kinds.

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Amanda Torres

is the founder of the food and health blog, The Curious Coconut. In 2010, Amanda was diagnosed with health issues including obesity, prediabetes, hypertension, and an autoimmune skin condition. After adopting the Paleo Diet, she achieved life-changing results and lost 80 pounds in one year.

Pumpkin Boniato Crustless Pie Recipe courtesy of Amanda Torres, author of “Latin American Paleo Cooking.” Serves 9-12

In her new cookbook, “Latin American Paleo Cooking,” a collaboration with her mother-in-law Milagros Torres, Amanda shares an adventurous side of Paleo that embraces authentic Latin American comfort foods completely free of gluten, dairy, and refined sugar.


Defensive Dining

q 4  Tbsp (60 g) unflavored gelatin

“The hardest things in restaurants to avoid are bad oils. Most still cook everything in unhealthy soybean/corn/vegetable/canola oils and hydrogenated trans-fat oils to fry. But some cook only with extra virgin olive oil or even butter. I just have to accept that I’m eating some bad oils when I dine out at most places. “Since I am seven years into Paleo and making it a sustainable lifestyle, I follow the 80/20 approach. I follow it about 80% of the time and use dining out to allow things like corn and beans in that 20%. I often enjoy a gluten-free bun with my burgers and will eat rice, beans, and corn. Arepas are one of my favorite foods!”

Favorite Local Flavor “At Beauty Shop I order the Ancho Garlic Charred Beef Carpaccio (hold the cheese) and Maple Glazed Bacon-Wrapped Steak Frites. At Lyfe Kitchen I like the grass-fed burger (lettuce wrapped or with a gluten-free bun) or the Turkey Meatball Martini (hold the cheese) with a side of the sweet potato fries. I dump the meatballs right on top and eat it like pasta.”

Thanksgiving Dinner


By Hailey Thomas

“You can have all of the traditional Southern Thanksgiving fixings while following strict Paleo. I’ll be cooking a pastured turkey from Renaissance Farms, giblet gravy (thickened with cassava flour), gluten- and dairy-free green bean casserole (complete with Paleo fried onions on top), sweet potatoes roasted in coconut oil and seasoned with cinnamon, and maple bacon roasted Brussels sprouts (on my blog). For dessert, I’ll make the crustless Puerto Rican pumpkin pie from my cookbook and my adaptation of my Grandma’s coconut pie with cassava flour crust.”

q 1  ¾ cups (394 g) mashed boniato, or white or yellow sweet potatoes

(use about 1 lb peeled and cubed) q 1  ¾ cups (394 g) mashed calabaza squash (from about 1 lb peeled

and seeded squash), or a 15 oz can of pumpkin puree q 1  ½ cups (355 ml) coconut milk

q ½  to ²/³ cup (115 to 150 g) coconut sugar q 1  tsp (2 g) ground cinnamon q ½  tsp ground ginger q ½  tsp aniseeds q ½  tsp ground cloves q ¼  tsp fine Himalayan salt

Directions: 1. Place the peeled and cubed boniato and calabaza in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until all the pieces are fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, place in a mixing bowl, and mash into a smooth consistency. If the boniato is particularly stringy, puree the mixture in a food processor or with an immersion blender until very smooth. 2. Pour the coconut milk in a small pot and gradually sprinkle in the gelatin, whisking frequently until wetted. Do not allow clumps to form. Once all the gelatin is incorporated, heat over medium heat, whisking often, until all the gelatin dissolves smoothly. 3. Combine all the remaining ingredients with the boniato mixture and pour in the coconut milk mixture. Add the sugar gradually and taste the batter until it reaches your desired sweetness. Pour the batter into an 8-inch (20.5-cm) square glass dish. Cover and refrigerate for several hours until set. Serve chilled. Omit the aniseeds and optionally replace with ½ tsp of ground mace for Autoimmune Paleo.

COLLIER VILLE (TN) - THIS REPORT is for the person who is suffering from the stress of daily, annoying, knee pain. The type of “ache” and/or even “sharp pain” where you get so mad or even physically nauseated that you feel your only option is to stop what you’re doing completely, reach for the pain medication and wonder how long you’ll be told to rest up for this time! The thing is, all of those pain medications are not good for your stomach - and the long periods of rest you’ve been told about, is not likely to be doing you much good either. Over the last 10+ years I’ve been working on a daily basis to help people aged 35+ find relief from chronic knee pain - and what I can tell you is that the cocktail mix of more rest and more painkillers or even “a quick injection” will do absolutely nothing to get to the root cause of knee pain... No matter what most Medical Professionals say! And it’s because I’m growing increasingly frustrated with the number of people suffering unnecessarily that I’ve written an 10 page report that details the 8 things any person can do to relieve knee pain naturally... And I want to send you this report completely at no charge. Now, I don’t know if these 8 things will relieve you of your knee pain completely. And I can’t promise that what has worked for most of my patients and clients over the past 10+ years, will work for you too. However reading my free report is definitely better than spending another day “resting”, “accepting it”, thinking “it’s your age” or worse yet, masking it with pain medications. If your recurring knee pain is affecting your job, your ability to keep active, threatens your independence, or hinders your family leisure time... Then you really need to read this free report.

Knee Pain “Truths” Finally Exposed

3040 Forest Hill Irene Rd #109 (Poplar @ Forest Hill in Germantown)

This report exposes how pain medications and injections might be cheaper (for your insurance!) and easy for a Doctor to prescribe, but

may not necessarily be right for you in the long run... Have you seen the list of crippling side effects these days? This 100% FREE report, titled: “8 Proven Ways For Runners To Stop Nagging Hip And Knee Pain! Run Faster And Longer Pain Free Without Stopping Your Training routine” (Value $28!) reveals the leading cause of knee pain that is overlooked by 95% of Doctors (hint: there’s a chance you do it everyday without realizing!), and even shows how you can get to the bottom of knee pain quickly, naturally, for FREE, and without needing a referral from a Doctor!... More: The report also exposes what most Doctors fail to recommend people aged 35+ when treating knee pain, and reveals for the first time to the residents of Collierville simple, yet often overlooked routines that help make knee pain go away fast... as well as improving posture, all at the same time - I’d say they’re perfect if you’re a lady aged 35+ and worried about looking “awkward” or losing your confident, healthy posture at the hands of chronic knee pain. I want you to imagine how life will be in five years from now if you DON’T get a grip on your knee pain now. How will your knee pain affect your job? Your preservation of self worth and your independence? Will you be a fun person to be with? Or live with? Ok, you get my drift...

By Blair Mize, MS, RDN, CSSD, LDN

A natural response to injury, pain, stress, or illness—inflammation isn’t all bad. Acute (or short-term) inflammation is a sign the body is taking care of itself after an affront. An acute response may occur during recovery from a hard workout, while fighting off an infection, or through healing from a burn or an allergic reaction. Inflammation becomes problematic when it is chronic (or long-term), potentially leading to cell damage and chronic disease. In fact, it may be a root cause of metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis, and Type 2 Diabetes, among others. Individuals who are overtraining or have various types of arthritis may also be inflamed.

The following foods can help combat inflammatory processes:


Collegiate athletes across the country enjoy tart cherry limeades after tough practices. Though research suggests a person likely needs 1.5 cups of tart cherries or 1 cup of tart cherry juice per day to see benefits, they’re worth including because they contain anthocyanins and catechins, powerful antioxidants that help fight inflammation.

Avocado This rich, creamy fruit enhances toast, salads, and sandwiches and is an excellent source of inflammation-reducing monounsaturated fat and antioxidants. Turmeric

Curcumin, a potent compound found in turmeric, is touted for its antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory effects. Possibilities for cooking with turmeric are endless, and the bright yellow spice is often used in Indian and Asian recipes. It can also elevate egg dishes, roasted vegetables, or sautéed shrimp.

Nuts & Seeds

Add walnuts, ground flaxseed, pumpkin and sesame seeds to salads and stir-fries or enjoy as a quick, convenient snack for an added boost of omega-3s. Some nuts and seeds have been shown to lower C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation linked to increased chronic disease risk and arthritis).


Contrary to popular belief, dairy can play a role in reducing (versus promoting) inflammation. Specifically, live active culture yogurt packs a probiotic punch that tends to reduce inflammation and maintain gut health.


The equivalent of 1½ cups lentils, chickpeas, beans, peas, and edamame per day delivers a healthy dose of magnesium that has been shown to aid in reducing chronic inflammation.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Fatty Fish

Plan salmon, tuna, mackerel, or sardines into a couple meals per week for a satisfying dose of omega-3 fats, which are essential for a healthy inflammatory response.

Tomatoes Before shying away from all nightshades (which have been widely blamed for arthritis inflammation), it’s important to note the research is inconclusive around this family of vegetables, which includes tomatoes. The evidence is solid that lycopene-packed tomatoes help reduce inflammation, in turn lowering cancer and cardiovascular risks.

Incorporate veggies from this powerhouse category to ensure a diet rich in inflammation-fighting phytochemicals. Roast broccoli, Brussel sprouts, or cauliflower or try sautéing or adding kale and cabbage to salads several times per week.

Berries Though berries like blueberries and goji berries have become more famous than others for anti-inflammatory properties, there are no bad berries. A great source of antioxidants, their flavor isn’t the only sweet thing about them! Pick up bags of frozen berries at the grocery store to enjoy during fall and winter months when berries are not in season.

A balanced, varied diet that includes mostly whole, minimally processed foods is key for long-term health. There are plenty of other foods that could be added to this list, but regularly planning in these therapeutic foods fuels the body to prevent and manage chronic inflammation.
