Nutritional Support For Chronic Inflammation

You Can’t See It…But There’s an Invisible Civil War Raging Inside Your Body That Can Go Undetected for Months…EVEN Years…slowly spreading disease! 

It’s more common than you think and it causes heart attacks, stroke, even cancer.

Inflamation sitesIn its role as a facilitator of the healing process, inflammation is generally either in ‘attack’ mode or ‘heal’ mode. In the attack mode, inflammation recruits the immune system to protect the body from an injury and to mitigate infection.

In the heal mode, inflammation works to re-grow damaged tissue as it facilitates the healing process.

With this knowledge in mind, it is easier to understand the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ inflammation. Acute inflammation—which occurs immediately after an injury and is almost always short-lived—would be considered ‘good’ inflammation.

In contrast, chronic inflammation—which is an unhealthy inflammatory over-response is ‘bad’ inflammation because it can linger for weeks, months or even years.

In addition, chronic inflammation can be linked to a number of dangerous diseases. In fact, a growing number of experts believe that chronic inflammation may very well be the underlying root cause of a multitude of diseases and life-threatening health conditions.

According to Yahoo Health: “In a medical version of the “unified field” theory in physics, many scientists now believe that most—or perhaps all—chronic diseases may have the same trigger: Inflammation. This fiery process has been linked to everything from heart attacks and strokes to type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer.”

Systemic inflammation is also considered bad inflammation. Systemic inflammation is generally thought to be caused by a massive release of cytokines that spreads throughout the entire body.

SymptomsLeft unchecked, systemic inflammation can result in organ failure and even death in some cases.

Now that we know the difference between acute (good) inflammation and chronic (bad) inflammation, the next step is to understand some of the causes of chronic inflammation and the steps we can take to prevent it.

5  Signs Your Body Is On Fire or Inflamed!

You can get your CRP levels checked at your doctor’s office, but if you’d like to try something right now….. Ask yourself the following question and mark down how many of them you respond “yes” to:

  • Do you feel stiff when you get up from sitting?

  • Are any of your joints sore when you full move them?

  • Do your hands feel stiff?

  • Do any of your joints feel swollen?

  • Do you have unexplained nasal congestion?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, there is a very good chance that there is a fire inside of you and you have signs of chronic inflammation.

Environmental variables such as stress, smoking, certain chemicals or substances and certain foods have all been shown to support the onset of chronic inflammation. These are all factors we can—for the most part—reduce or eliminate from our lives (e.g., learn to manage stress, don’t smoke, reduce exposure to harmful chemicals, etc.). And of these, diet is the single most important controllable factor in regards to whether or not an individual experiences chronic inflammation.

Food is the most important element because this is of course how our bodies obtain the nutrients necessary to support life. Food also sets the stage for the functioning of the body’s metabolic systems. Healthy diets support healthy metabolic system functioning and likewise, unhealthy diets result in unhealthy metabolic system functioning—and the onset of illness, disease and conditions such as chronic inflammation.

Superfoods That Help Beat Pain & Inflammation
