One of the pillars of good health in life is keeping chronic inflammation at bay in the body. Its the root cause of life's most painful ailments and attributes to some of the most debilitating digestive conditions that we encounter. Whether we are at the gym pumping iron possibly tearing muscle fibers or eating food containing allergens that totally inflame our digestive tracts, inflammation is present as much as anything in our lives. It is responsible for most all aches and pains that we experience.
Inflammation is defined as the body's attempt to heal itself, defend against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria; and repair damaged tissue. It is a tool used for healing in the body. Chronic inflammation, however, is swelling that is constant and over time disrupts cell to cell communication within our cellular network and hinders the ability for us to absorb and transfer vital nutrients. This can be systemic and affect our whole being or it can also be acute and concentrated locally in one area of the body. We can almost look at chronic inflammation as a car accident that causes horrible traffic delays in the paths in front and behind them. Stopping the pathways from absorbing nutrients and communication is a deadly cocktail and the initial cause of some of the worst diseases that we know today.
Inflammation found acutely within the digestive tract can lead to serious digestive disorders such as; Colitis, Gastritis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS and Diverticulitis. When the gut is inflamed, it does not absorb nutrients and foods properly and so fatigue and bloating can occur. Chronic inflammation that is systemic and found throughout the body can lead to a very painful and debilitating conditions such as Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis and many others. It is here where Americans face a disastrous reality. Many of these ailments are treated with pills and medications that may take pain away temporarily, but in turn end up causing more harm to the rest of the body. Treating chronic inflammation with pain medication can and will lead to more pain stemming from constipation and more inflammation!!! The next time you hear someone say they were diagnosed with any condition that ends with the letters "itis" at the end, it is an inflammatory based condition. Time Magazine even called chronic inflammation "The silent killer for Americans".
The choices that we make with food and nutrition play a major role in how much inflammation we face. This, in turn, affects our quality of life. We make bad decisions because we feel bad. If everyday we choose to begin our days by consuming donuts or bagels with coffee, our digestive process becomes irritated with horrible acidity and allergens that reek havoc in our digestive tracts with inflammation. We should all strive for balance with the foods we consume. So if one eats a lot of good alkalizing dark leafy greens, sweet potatoes, brown rice, vegetable juices and flourless breads, they can include in moderation a mix of the bad stuff including coffee, sugar, meat, breads and pasta. Simple choices that pack a nutritional punch will allow us to feel good enough to make good decisions throughout the day.
It's not always easy or convenient to choose the right foods to eat due to busy schedules and being on the go.

We offer 3 products that can be consumed in a variety of ways, including smoothies and teas, or you can check out our website for delicious recipes using these same products to make brownies, cereal bars, oatmeal, trail mix, etc. Rockin' Wellness contains potent and powerful herbs, spices, greens, mushrooms, beans, seeds, root vegetables, fruits and leaves that all have qualities about them that are excellent weapons of choice in the battle against what is known as chronic inflammation, aka "Getting Old Faster". All of the ingredients in our delicious smoothies and teas are known to contain naturally occurring anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce swelling and redness in our digestive tracts allowing us to process food nutrients properly. When our stomach is in an inflamed state from eating TOO MUCH dairy, sugar, meat, coffee, beer, sodas, etc our bodies do not break down food well, absorb nutrients nor assimilate them.
The stomach is known as our "second brain" and performs functions that are vital to the health of the rest of our systems in the body such as producing brain "feel good" chemicals (serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine) that help keep us emotionally stable. If our digestion system is always battling inflammation caused from our bad food and lifestyle choices, it is going to have a difficult time tending to these very important functions that keep us healthy. The easy, nutritious and delicious choice would be to drink a Rockin Wellness nutritional smoothie or tea daily. You will feel satisfied and well enough to make good decisions for the rest of the day. We all want to stay healthy and grow old slowly...
