Inflammation is your body’s response to stress – whether from your diet, lifestyle or environment. It can even begin with an injury. Stress of some sort is always the trigger.
Because, the job of inflammation is to start the healing process within the body. It’s role is to remove a pathogen and the tissue that was damaged as a result of the pathogen in the body. You see, it actually performs a critical role in the natural health and functionality of the human body. Like Martha Stewart says, “It’s a good thing!”
Inflammation keeps us alive!
So, why do we keep hearing such bad and negative things about it? Because when there is excess inflammation in the body, when your body is fighting overtime to heal itself and the immune response is triggered continually, it has the opposite effect.
It no longer heals, but begins to do damage instead. In an effort to heal, it harms. Too much is a bad thing!
Additionally, high levels of inflammation in the body have been found to be related to aging and many kinds of diseases. It’s even been found to be related to things like Alzheimer’s, arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, depression, and much more.
And so, reducing any excess inflammation is important and can be done with certain foods, supplements, essential oils, and medications. We’re learning more about using natural remedies to fight it in this series.
