THE KEY TO REDUCE INFLAMMATION

Updated: Sep 5, 2019



“Everything we do is either inflammatory or anti-inflammatory."


-by Bess O’Conner


The Good…


Everyone throws the word "inflammation" around these days as something bad or like a new catchphrase to highlight newfound self-awareness. In reality, inflammation is the body's natural initial response to an infection or an invader. It is the process by which the immune system recognizes and removes harmful stimuli and begins the healing process (1).


The goal of the inflammatory cascade is to increase the blood circulation immediately around the infected area for healing, thus there is an increase in body heat to the site as an antibiotic effect.

Usually, the area of the body is:


  • Red and Warm because of the increase of blood to the site.

  • Swollen because of an increase in blood and proteins to battle.

  • Painful due to the expansion of tissues causing mechanical pressure on nerve cells, which carry the sensation to your brain.

The inflammatory response ends when the infection that caused it is eradicated. 



The Bad…


If the foreign bacteria or infection is not eradicated from the body on time, then chronic inflammation that can go from months to years sets in.


The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks chronic diseases as the greatest threat to human health says the prevalence of some specific chronic inflammation-mediated disease is anticipated to increase persistently for the next 30 years in the United States (1).


The Ugly…


Chronic inflammation is the Agent Provocateur of many challenging diseases. Medical professionals come across many patients who have suffered from chronic pain, arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, dermatitis, asthma, colitis, Crohn's disease and autoimmune disease. Worldwide, 3 of 5 people die due to chronic inflammatory diseases like stroke, chronic respiratory diseases, heart disorders, cancer, obesity, and diabetes (1).


The Cure.


Their diet (ant inflammation foods, lots of Turmeric!!!); What time they went to bed and what time they woke up in the morning (before sunrise…a consistent routine); their Mindset (stress-relief and strictly eliminating people who elicit a stress reaction); Exercise (high intensity and weight training regimen 3 x a week).


They also didn't mention they had an issue and stopped telling negative stories about themselves. Sometimes the most natural cure is to heal your soul because you are the only person who can do it best.


Eat Food that is also Medicine.
