Inflammation

The Unrecognized Epidemic

 

What does cancer, heart disease, autoimmune diseases and the aging process have in common? They seem to  be separate but they all have one common denominator: inflammation. Inflammation can be a good thing. When something is not right, your immune system will protect you as best it can. It is the body’s defense mechanism and makes you heal. But it is bad when it goes out of control . Why then has our immune system gone awry? It wasn’t supposed to be this way.

 

What is Inflammation? When something is not right in the body, the immune system releases chemicals called prostaglandins and leukotrienes. In large numbers these chemicals cause inflammation which enhances the damaged tissue’s ability to kill invading microorganisms and sets the stage for repair and defense against injury or infection. It is when the body continually releases these inflammatory chemicals even when there are no invaders to fight that the problem arises.

 

Types of Inflammation.  There are three types of inflammation:

 

Triggers and Causes of Inflammation: Inflammation is quite common and caused by more than just pathogenic organisms.

 

 

Another cause is a high sugar diet. When you eat high sugar foods, the pancreas secretes insulin and the higher the amount of insulin the more it signals acid to be converted to immune cells that cause inflammation.

 

 

 

The Natural Approach to Reducing Inflammation. The seeds of chronic inflammation and a lot of other health issues have its roots in the digestive system. Two-thirds of the body’s defenses reside in the gastrointestinal tract. The immune system first goes into hyperdrive in the digestive tract where it is designed to eliminate viruses and bacteria from your food before they infect your body.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is important is to understand that inflammation can be prevented and reversed by making dietary and lifestyle changes now. Our bodies are complex and resilient but it needs nurturing. Help your body heal itself. It is after all our permanent home.
