Supplements Q & A

What are anti-inflammatory supplements?

Vitamins, herbs, and other supplements are a popular and natural way to relieve the pain and symptoms of rheumatic diseases such as arthritis. But with the abundance of supplements available today, deciding which ones are right for you can seem overwhelming.

Dr. Khaleghi conveniently provides supplements in his office so you can be sure you’re taking something recommended for your specific condition. Common supplements that reduce inflammation include:

  • Turmeric
  • Ginger
  • Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA)
  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Xanthohumol
  • Resveratrol

Depending on your particular needs, he may also recommend vitamin and mineral supplements, such as calcium and vitamin D.

What is CBD oil?

CBD has gained recent acclaim for its ability to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote restful sleep. Though CBD is the second-most prevalent chemical in cannabis, it doesn’t cause the psychoactive effects that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) does. That means you won’t get high by taking CBD alone.

Studies have found CBD to be a safe and effective treatment for many conditions, such as:

  • Epilepsy
  • Arthritis
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

You can use CBD in many forms, including capsules, topical salves, extracts, and edibles. Dr. Khaleghi helps you decide what type of CBD supplement works best for you.

What is the ProLon diet?
