We’re excited to be launching our inaugural Anti-Inflammation 30-Day Guided Reboot, which will begin on August 18. This program is designed to support weight loss while reducing chronic inflammation, which is known as the silent killer and linked to many diseases and aches and pains.
Abigail Hueber, a Registered Dietician and believer in the power of a plant-based diet to increase overall health and well-being, will be coaching this brand-new Guided Reboot. She spoke with us about what happens when inflammation goes wrong, and how juicing on a Guided Reboot can help decrease excessive, chronic inflammation.
Q: Abigail, what are the most important things to know about inflammation?
Inflammation is an important part of our body’s normal function — acute or short periods of inflammation are what drive our bodies to heal. Think about what happens when you get a small cut: the area turns red and inflamed as a means to brings attention from our body and begin the healing process.
The issue with inflammation arises when it becomes chronic, and the inflammation response is overly active for long periods of time. All people have inflammation in their bodies — what’s important to control is amount of inflammation. Diet and exercise are the best tools to support a healthy inflammatory response in the body, which is why a Reboot can have such a powerful impact.
Q: What happens when chronic inflammation is left untreated?
Inflammation is driven by the release of cytokines, a natural chemical that stimulates damaged cells to heal and repair. When inflammation is chronic, these chemicals can be released systemically, throughout the body and actually irritate and damage healthy cells. Over time this can increase the risk of degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
Q: How much of an impact do you believe juicing has on chronic inflammation?
Fruits and vegetables are rich in anti-inflammatory compounds, such as phytonutrients, antioxidants and many other vitamins and minerals, which help to reduce inflammation. Juicing is an effective method to increase the consumption of these beneficial compounds and help decrease excess inflammation in the body.
Q: How does this Guided Reboot benefit people with chronic inflammation?
The best treatment for chronic inflammation is to remove the major sources of inflammation and focus on increasing anti-inflammatory sources. The Guided Reboot eliminates the most common inflammation triggers, such as processed food, sugar and refined grains. In their place, the Reboot emphasizes nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables which support the bodies mechanisms to reduction chronic inflammation. The Guided Reboot also promotes weight loss, blood glucose control and lifestyle changes that further promote anti-inflammatory processes in the body.
Q: What are the most common and notable improvements you’ve seen from participants’ health?
The Guided Reboot program promotes weight loss, taste changes and increased preference for healthier foods, mental clarity, blood glucose control, better quality sleep, improved digestion as well as overall feelings of calm. Many Rebooters find a Guided Reboot to be the kick start they need to launch into a healthier lifestyle!
