NMutri­tion­ist Hannah Kaye ad­vises five diet tips to help re­duce stress-in­duc­ing in­flam­ma­tion: 1. Fol­low a diet that is at least 50% raw. 2. Avoid gluten, an in­flam­ma­tion cul­prit. 3. Side­step glu­tamic acid, as­par­tate and glu­ta­mate (an ex­ci­ta­tory neu­ro­trans­mit­ter linked to anx­i­ety). 4. Cut down on caf­feine – it stresses the adrenals. 5. In­cor­po­rate anti-in­flam­ma­tory co­conut and turmeric.
