Could a Better Diet Cool Your Inflammation?
Inflammation in the body causes chronic pain and poor sleep habits. But, if you take away inflammatory foods, inflammation decreases, as does the pain. When pain doesn’t keep you up at night, you sleep better. 

By removing toxic foods from your diet, everything runs more smoothly. Dr. Lynn Lipskis shares tips for how to make healthier food choices to reduce pain and improve sleep. She explains how certain foods can cause inflammation in your airways, making it harder to breathe when sleeping. Eating too much before bed will increase your body temperature, making it hard to fall asleep. 

She also covers the five food groups that cause inflammation -- gluten, dairy, processed carbohydrates, alcohol (specifically red wine) and refined sugars -- and what to eat to get the best night's sleep. 

Listen as Dr. Lynn joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss what and how to eat for a good night’s sleep.
