Dr. Bill's "Six-S" Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Dr. Bill's "Six-S" Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Following my own life-threatening “itis” illness, I thoroughly researched what diet would best balance my inflammation. After a few years of experimentation – and taste-reshaping – I came up with a simple, delicious and nutritious diet. We’ll call it the six-S diet. (“Diet” simply means a way of eating. We’re all on a “diet.”) Instead of a diet, call it a “do-it.”

  • Seafood: primarily wild pacific salmon
  • Smoothies: multiple dark-colored fruits, berries, organic yogurt, ground flaxseeds, and more. The sipping solution is one of the best inflammation solutions. (See “sipping solution,” page 000).
  • Salads: go as deeply colorful as you can: go green, such as organic arugula, kale, spinach; go red, such as tomatoes and red peppers; and red and black beans
  • Spices: turmeric, black pepper, ginger, garlic, rosemary, chiles, and cinnamon · Satisfying snacks: graze to your body’s content. (See “why grazing is good for you,” page 000)
  • Supplements: The three inflammation-balancing ones I use in my medical practice and those supported by science:
    • Omega-3 fish oils, primarily salmon oil from Alaska
    • Astaxanthin, the natural anti-inflammatory nutrient that makes salmon pink. We recommend BioAstin® Hawaiian Astaxanthin®
    • Juice Plus®, a whole-food-based concentrate of many fruits and vegetables

These science-based supplements are meant to fill in the gaps in the first three Ss: seafood, salads, and smoothies, since few people consistently eat an average of 3 ounces of wild salmon every day and ten servings (ten fistfuls) of combined fruits and vegetables every day. (On page 000, we’ll discuss each of these supplements in scientific detail.)

For more about these supplements, see:

  • The Omega-3 Effect: Everything You Need to Know About The Supernutrient for Living Longer, Happier, and Healthier (Sears and Sears, Little Brown 2012)
  • Astaxanthin: The Supernutrient in Seafood, by William Sears, 2013
  • The Juice Plus Effect, (see AskDrSears.com/JuicePlusResearch)

Consider the “savory six” as peacekeepers of the inflammation war going on in your body. They quench the fires of inflammation, blunt the sugar spikes of glycation, and soften the wear and tear of oxidation. Remember, for good health, keep the excess “shuns” out of your body.
