In this series of lessons, we will discuss the foods you need to avoid that cause inflammation in the body and prevent the cells from detoxifying. You will learn how to switch from unhealthy foods to foods that are nutrient dense and lower overall inflammation allowing for detoxification of all of your organs. Included is information about Advanced Glycated End Products or AGEs for short, which are very inflammatory that are in some foods and are creating with some cooking styles. You will learn how to avoid the foods that contain a high concentration of AGEs and cooking methods to reduce the formation of them in your body.
In this module we will first focus on:
- What NOT to eat and why
- What to eat and how
- The best way to cook foods to avoid creating Advanced Glycated End products or AGEs
- and more!
