Inflammation is both a root cause and a symptom in a wide variety of health conditions. Eating a plant based diet and that includes herbs is in itself anti-inflammatory, as opposed to a meat and dairy heavy diet. Almost all herbs and plants are anti-inflammatory to some degree, some with a more pronounced action than others where the effect is secondary yet still an important part of the overall synergistic effect of the herb. Since this makes a complete listing of all plants with any inflammatory action quite long, the herbs listed below are just a subset of the more potent ones. Anti-inflammatory herbs can be used to decrease inflammation and painful swelling in arthritis , skin disorders, and may have an important role in the prevention of cancers and other serious conditions linked to chronic inflammation.
