The complexity of inflammation is often overwhelming. It is only now that chronic inflammation is becoming appreciated as the underlying cause of chronic disease.
What is Anti-Inflammatory Nutrition?
Both the initiation and resolution phases of inflammation are under strong dietary control. The goal of anti-inflammatory nutrition is to discover which combination of nutrients and what levels are required to manage the inflammatory response for optimal wellness. This becomes the basis for “evidence-based wellness”.
Areas of Research
Although inflammation is central to understanding every chronic disease condition, the Foundation has focused its research in the following areas:
- Metabolic diseases (Obesity and diabetes)
- Neurological disease (Depression, brain trauma, ADHD, and Alzheimer’s)
- Auto-immune diseases (Multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus)
- Ocular diseases (AMD, retinopathy, and optical nerve damage)
