On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Dr. Monica Aggarwal and Dr. Jyothi Rao join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to discuss inflammation and how it can trigger chronic diseases that take years off of your life. 

The authors of Body on Fire will make you rethink what it means to have a Big Mac attack. It’s not just a craving for two artery-clogging all-beef patties, not-so-special sauce, lettuce, high-fat cheese, pickles, and onions on a sesame seed bun. A Big Mac attack is actually a highly inflammatory all-out assault on your health that fans the flames of disease. 

The standard American diet is filled with foods just like the Big Mac that serve as the gasoline poured on an unhealthy fire!

So what can you do to bring the blaze under control? Doctors Aggarwal and Rao share the anti-inflammatory foods that can help get you back on track, including specific spices! You will also learn how quality sleep and exercise can help to control inflammation and improve your health!

Plus, Dr. Neal Barnard talks with Chuck about the link between COVID-19 and inflammation. Can a person reduce their risk for severe COVID outcomes by shifting toward a more anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle?
