A Message from our Founder

More than 30 years ago I realized the future of medicine did not lie with developing new magic bullets for any particular disease but developing an overall dietary program to keep inflammation in a zone.  This would allow us enough of an inflammatory response to defend ourselves against microbial invasion and help heal our injuries, yet at the same time prevent excess inflammation from attacking our organs.

Our History

Founded in 2003, the Infammation Research Foundation has published a number of seminal studies on the use of anti-inflammatory nutrition to treat various metabolic and neurological conditions. The Foundation is unique in that its founder, Dr. Barry Sears, pays all of its overhead expenses. This allows 100% of all donations to the foundation go to research programs.
