Episode Summary

One of the biggest causes of disease today can be directly linked to inflammation in the body. While inflammation is not always a bad thing, it can rage out of control quite easily and needs to be addressed early. Everything from joint pain to anxiety can be linked back to inflammation, and it is only by figuring out where you are on the inflammation spectrum that you can start to create a customized health program that works for you.

Dr. Will Cole specializes in clinically investigating the underlying factors of chronic inflammation and helps his patients and readers create custom health programs to fit their own unique body. Dr. Cole’s new book, The Inflammation Spectrum, is all about educating people on where they are on the inflammation spectrum so they can find their triggers and take on their own health responsibility.

Dr. Cole is here to ease your mind around inflammation, take the fear out of one of the leading causes of disease, and help you create balance and sustainability for your body to live a long, healthy and enjoyable life.

If you want to learn how to use food as a tool to fight inflammation, figure out which labs and tests are right for your unique symptoms, or gain tools to create a balanced inflammatory system in your body, you need to listen to this episode. Even if you feel like you are dealing with something colossal at the moment, Dr. Cole is here to help show you that it doesn’t mean you have to feel like this forever.

“Just like so much in functional medicine, we have to tailor our approach to wellness based on where we are on this inflammation spectrum.” (8:19)

“We wield so much power over our physiology by the choices that we make. So most of these issues are improvable, manageable, reversible, healable things.” (12:11)

“Every food we eat is either feeding inflammation or calming it, there is no ‘Switzerland meal’.” (17:52)

“If you want to keep it super simple, start with food. Food wields a lot of power over our physiology. And the overwhelming majority of people that are listening and for the overwhelming majority of people going through chronic health problems, food is primary.” (26:13)

“You have to kind of put the work and the intention in to get there, but the other side of it is grace and lightness for your wellness.” (30:30)
