WTF is Inflammation (Why The Fuss of course)
Inflammation – often the cause for diseases we experience.
The tricky part? It can come from any number of lifestyle factors.
So, how do we ensure we maintain our health? Well, we need to know:
· What inflammation means
· Where it’s coming from
· And what we can do about it that is easy and sustainable.
From a simple bump on the knee, a bacterial infection, a persistent illness we can’t quite put our finger on, to a stressful day at work or a broken heart. Whether its pain, injury, or illness, our bodies respond with this magic word: inflammation.
The term is often flung around like its going out of fashion, but for very good reason.
Heart disease, obesity, depression, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, insulin resistance are all linked to inflammation.
It’s important to note that inflammation is a common, natural, innate response to injury, pain, illness, stress and in fact is quite necessary for our survival.
Inflammation is our body’s way of saying it isn’t gonna take on injury or illness without a fight. The first responder is the inflammatory process. That includes pain, swelling and redness. It’s essential we experience it.
