UAB's Lauren Whitt suggests that the inflammatory responses can be correctly regulated by eating food items that are naturally inflammatory. According to Whitt, eating food items such as dark and leafy greens, tomatoes, citrus fruits and wild-caught salmon could help reduce inflammation in the body.

"Americans are constantly on the lookout for a quick-fix, so when our immune systems kick into overdrive, we would generally prefer to pop a pill and keep moving. But if we focus on our diets, we can alleviate the need for the anti-inflammatory medications in many cases", Whitt said.
