The Anti-Inflammatory Diet

I am a huge supporter of the anti-inflammatory diet for better health. As a an anti-aging professional and holistic dentist, I follow this diet and recommend it to my patients.

These dietary guidelines are designed to reduce the ratio of two essential fatty acids. That is, the arachidonic acid AA, to EPA-DHA ratio. You must begin to eat more Omega-3 fats and less Omega-6 fats which are converted to the very inflammatory A-A pathway.

The Markers: How Do I Know if I am Inflamed?

If any of these apply, you are inflamed:

  1. Being over weight
  2. Birth control pills
  3. Beta blockers or diuretics
  4. Statin drugs, cholesterol-lowering drugs
  5. Sleep deprivation or Obstructive Sleep Apnea, OSA.
  6. Fatigue
  7. Brittle finger nails
  8. Groggy upon waking
  9. Craving carbohydrates
  10. Dehydration

          An anti-inflammatory diet, increases neurotransmitter function

          Smiling also increases NT's. So…SMILE!!!

Dietary Endocrinology - What You Eat Affects Your Hormones

       Food à Macronutrients Proteins, Carbohydrates, Fats àproduce

       Hormonal Responses, ie.  Insulin, glucagon and eicosanoids

What are Eicosanoids?

  • These are SUPER HORMONES that control all other hormones. They change every time you eat affecting Insulin, Glucagon and Eicosanoid ratios.
  • They exist in every single cell in your body and are:
  • Increased by Omega–6 fats. You increase the Arachadonic Acid and you:
  • Decrease: Omega- 3 Fatty Acid consumption
  • Stop eating cheap vegetable oils, these are all omega-6-oils.
  • Hormones produced by silent inflammation, change each time you eat.
  • Pro and Anti-inflammatory hormones, are affected by the type of fat you eat.
  • Dietary eicosanoids, keep your hormones in a range consistent with controlling Silent Inflammation
  • Fat cells: The 1st generator of silent inflammation
  • To decrease INSULIN, decrease ALL REFINED SUGARS!!!

What is the Bottom Line on

What is being produced in the American diet are increasing amounts of Arachadonic Acid. The body then tries to sequester this AA to neutralize it. It does this by increasing your fat storage, say OBESITY. This sequesters or dilutes the AA from the body, BUT, in doing so what happens is this:

As the AA infiltrates the ADIPOCYTES, it causes an increased awareness by the liver and the fat cells to step up production of inflammatory factors (cytokines) causing an:

  1. Increase in macrophage infiltration and an increased production of…
  2. IL-6, causing an…
  3. Increase in CRP in the liver, causing increased production of…
  4. TNF-alpha, thus causing an increase in...
  5. INSULIN RESISTANCE, first in the adipose tissue and then spreading to other tissues (EXAMPLE, KIDS)

The more the OBESITY, the more AA that exists in their fat cells. This is the

"INNATE BIOLOGICAL DEFENSE SYSTEM" that tries to sequester the inflammation before it can spread out and cause damage to the rest of the body.


  • Increase the AA in fat cells, thus, (sequestering the toxic AA in fat cells)
  • Increases macrophage infiltration, (these cells sense inflammation) and causes INSULIN RESISTANCE
  • Eicosanoids interact with Ppar gamma causing:
    • Increased IL-6 production (which increases CRP production)
    • Increased TNF-a production (which increases Insulin Resistance)

                 ~Barry Sears, PHD, A4M Conference DVD, June 2001


Arachadonic Acid Derived Eicosanoids Stimulate adipogenesis by:

  • Stimulating the Ppar-gamma by 15 deoxy-PG1-2, thus causing the body to:
  • Increase insulin sensitivity, (from Ppar stem cells) and cause
    • Weight gain and turn on
    • 15 deoxy-PG1-2, which stimulates Ppar gamma, SO THAT, weight gain becomes preferential to systemic inflammation. This system causes fat cells to be made from stem cells. This is why you’re getting fat!
  • Biological defense, (the innate ability to store excess AA to make less toxic)
    • Weight gain is preferable to systematic inflammation so the body dilutes the toxins by adding H2O to the fat cells to dilute the AA.

Omega oil, 10 grams per day decreases bipolar depression. ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) improves greatly also?


  • Maintenance dosing                3 grams per day (tbsp of cod liver oil)
  • Improving heart function        5 grams per day
  • Txt for chronic pain                7.5 grams per day
  • Txt for neurological disease   10 grams per day or more

Key:     The more you control insulin: the less Omega 3’s you need

            The less you control insulin: the more Omega 3’s you need

Dietary Strategies for the rest of your life

  1. Short term (every day 3-4 hours) Balance the PR-to CHO ratio (Plate of food)
  2. Longer term (7-14 days) Balance AA- EPA ratios

What is the Best Anti-Inflammatory Diet?

            Way of Life (Greek root meaning of Diet)

You MUST balance the Carbohydrate to Protein ratio at every meal.


  1. Very low Carbohydrate Diets
  2. Moderate Carbohydrate Diets
  3. High Carbohydrate Diets
  4. Very high Carbohydrate Diets

Variations on the 4 diet types include:

  • Atkins Diet causes X’s glucagon and X’s cortisol
  • Zone Diet (10 times better at decreasing silent inflammation)
  • Standard American Diet (SAD): Causes increased insulin and fat storage and is highly inflammatory  

Controlling insulin also depends on the PR to CHO ratio (link and balance)

Clinical benefits of high dose Omega-3 oil:

Decreases silent inflammation and increaseswellness in:

  1. Heart Disease
  2. Cancer
  3. Bipolar Depression, (10 gm a day, begets a 500% greater reversal).
  4. ADD, ADHD
  5. Multiple Sclerosis

(EPA, DHA can start reversing MS in 2 years Norwegian Study)

  1. Alzheimer’s
  2. Chronic Pain
  3. Skin Disorders
  4. Autoimmune Disease
  5. Brain dysfunction
  6. Pain and Arthritis control. Use molecular distillation and ultra-refined EPA- DHA concentrates. Omega-3 oil is far better than statins in reducing heart disease. Use Weapons Grade Omega-3 oil

Lifetime Anti-Inflammatory Diet Rules

  1. Eat small meal portions throughout the day (every 3-4 hours)
  2. Have some protein at every meal.
  3. Eat primarily low-glycemic fruits and vegetables.
  4. Take your proper dosing of Omega-3 oil.

    21st Century Anti-Aging Medicine will consist of…

  • Reduction of silent inflammation
  • Hormonal control through, “Dietary Endocrinology”
  • Diet will be the primary drug
  • High-dose “pure” Omega-3 oil is the key. No Hg++, No dioxins, No PCB’s etc.
  • Return to Hippocrates, “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”.
  • Food can control Hormones and Hormones can cut inflammation.  You have   just slowed down the aging process.
  • Food also controls your Genes (Nutrigenomics)
  • Control of  NFk-B

THE LOW GLYCEMIC DIET and WHY DO I NEED IT?    ~Shari Lieberman, PhD.

  • To control weight management, inflammation and body composition
  • We were designed to eat a low G-I (Glycemic-Index) diet
  • Traditional diets have had a low glycemic- index content
  • HIGH GLYCEMIC CONTENTS, throw the metabolic switch to store fat
  • We were NEVER genetically-engineered to tolerate massive swings in glucose
  • G-I: is a measurement of the impact of carbohydrates on BLOOD SUGAR levels
  • There is no calorie counting or restriction
  • CR (Caloric Restriction) slows BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) some 10 -15 %,
  •       then you lose muscle and it returns as fat
  • Children are fat because their parents are fat
  • Most people eat a glycemic index of 80 or more
  • Low GI diets, give you time-released energy
  • You stay in the fat-burning zone
  • Low GI diets: decrease C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and fix Insulin Resistance and DO NOT LOWER BMR!
