The Role of Inflammation and Diet in Chronic Disease
Monica Aggarwal, MD
Chronic inflammation is thought to be a factor in the development of diseases such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease, yet the mechanisms are not fully understood. Nutrition and stress may play a key role in the inflammatory process, but health professionals may be unaware of the extent of this role and how dietary strategies may be incorporated as part of a standard treatment plan. Learn about the roles of diet, the autonomic nervous system, the gut microbiome and immune system in the inflammatory process as well as specific evidence-based dietary strategies you can recommend to your patients to reduce inflammation and lower disease risk.
