- Don’t eat sausages or fried foods.
- Reduce the amount of refined flowers and sugars you eat.
- Reduce your coffee and tea consumption as much as possible.
- Control your portion sizes. Try to make sure that you don’t eat too much. It’s better to eat several meals of smaller amounts over the course of the day.

Foods that are rich in flavonoids
All inflammation is related to an excess of acidity in your body.
