You can make flaxseed or chia seed water to reduce inflammation. In a glass of water of approximately 240 milliliters 8 ounces place 1 teaspoon of flaxseed or chia and stir. Wait for it to soak for 6-12 hours so that it forms a gel. When 6-12 hours have passed use a strainer (separate the water from the seeds) to only drink the water with the gel from the seeds and then consume.
