2. Reduce Pain and Inflammation

Much of the common Western diet, with processed and refined grains, does little to help inflammatory problems. If you’re not sure what kinds of problems these are, take a look at the following list, that have their source in inflammation of some kind:

Alzheimer’s

    arthritis

    asthma

    atherosclerosis

    Crohn’s disease

    colitis

    dermatitis

    diverticulitis

    hepatitis

    irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

    lupus erythematous

    nephritis

    Parkinson’s

    ulcerative colitis

Pain is very often caused by inflammation of some kind, and therefore if the source of the inflammation can be reduced, then in turn, so can the pain.

The slow carb diet, with it’s lean proteins, green vegetables and legumes is, in fact, an anti-inflammatory diet. This means it can help reduce inflammation symptoms around the body. This is good news for anyone with any of the above conditions, or any of the hundreds of other ailments that have a root in inflammation.

Specifically, because sugars, high amounts of fat, refined grains, and potatoes are excluded, and because all of these foods can increase inflammation, this diet can be very effective for people transitioning from a traditional Western diet.

Using this diet, if only to reduce inflammation, has the potential to change your life, or the life of someone you know. Consider testing it for 4 – 6 weeks, and taking a diary of your symptoms over that time. Then you’ll be able to see if a pattern or change emerges.
