(NaturalNews) Inflammation is a normal response of the immune system designed to help aid the healing process. Acute inflammation occurs when people stub a toe, get a slight infection or even a sunburn. For a few days or so, the inflammation in the body is an indication that the system is undergoing repair. However, as many people know all too well, it's when the inflammation goes from acute to chronic that it becomes problematic.

Chronic inflammation means that the body is essentially overwhelmed as it continues to stay in a constant state of repair. In turn, regular bouts of fatigue ensue, typically followed by a host of serious health conditions ranging from rheumatoid arthritis and irritable bowel syndrome to digestive disorders and cancer.

Several kinds of foods can fend off the body's response to inflammation, many of which have been suggested by the popular Dr. Oz. In fact, he advises people to swap out certain foods in exchange for ones that directly fight the problem. In most cases, the change means going from traditional, modern-day eating habits to ones that are significantly healthier.

Top food swaps recommended by Dr. Oz to reduce inflammation

Here's a look at some of the ways people can reduce inflammation without compromising the tastes and textures they've become familiar with through the years.

Select cinnamon over sugar. It's no secret that refined sugar wreaks havoc on the body. Cinnamon has inflammation-reducing compounds that provide a similar sweetness, so both the body and its tastebuds are rewarded.

Choose walnuts over cereal. Health Ranger Mike Adams has clearly demonstrated that many supermarket cereals are riddled with toxins. His groundbreaking research and videos showing shards of metal fragments in the well-known Wheaties cereal caught the attention of health-minded individuals. Obviously, toxins in our cereal, or any food for that matter, isn't good for inflammation. Walnuts satisfy that cereal crunch craving, but are instead loaded with anti-inflammatory fats that fight inflammation.

Use extra-virgin olive oil on salads instead of creamy dressings. Ordinary supermarket salad dressings are high in the fats that cause inflammation. No one wants that. Instead, choose extra-virgin olive oil. It offers moistness and light flavor that creates a nice substitute for other dressings while also fighting inflammation with its anti-inflammatory polyphenols.
