INFLAMMATION: WHEN A GOOD THING GOES BAD
Inflammation is a natural, thriving mechanism of the immune system. Acute inflammatory response is a way to fire at and ward off disease and infection, as well as to fuel cellular regeneration. We all require a healthy measure of inflammation in order to survive. What happens when the body feels as though it is constantly under an attack of some sort? What if the inflammatory response persists and you are plagued with an incessant slow burning fire inside of you? This is precisely when a good thing, goes bad. The body is amazingly resilient, but relies solely upon communication between the major systems within the body (the endocrine, digestive, respiratory/cardiovascular, and the central nervous system) in order to function and heal properly. When chronic inflammation is present, these systems can no longer communicate, and disease is virtually inevitable. Which system in the body is affected most can determine the type of disease that will befall you personally. In any event, inflammation is often linked as an underlying cause leading to several serious conditions from Asthma to Arthritis and many others in between, even as far-reaching as Obesity and Alzheimer’s.
Symptoms of chronic inflammation:
• Chronic body aches and pains
• Joint pain and stiffness
• Visible aging signs
• Fatigue & Irritability
• Indigestion/Acid Reflux
• Frequent infections & Slow Healing
• Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Problems
• Dry Eyes & Blurry Vision
• Skin conditions (acne, psoriasis, etc.
• Weight changes/Obesity
• Urinary tract infections
INTERNAL INFLAMMATION AND ITS PATH OF DESTRUCTION:
Causes of chronic inflammation:
• Environmental Toxins
• Low grade viral, fungal, and bacterial infections
• Chronic, low-grade food sensitivities
• Digestive bacteria imbalances
• Diet and Lifestyle
• Gout/Arthritis/Osteoarthritis/Rheumatory/Lupus/Fibromyalgia/Undiagnosed Joint & Muscle Pain- Inflammatory cells called cytokines lead to the production of enzymes that attack the tissues and break down cartilage in joints. (click article links below to learn more on this subject)

• IBS/Colitis/Crohn’s- Inflammatory cells are found in abundance in either or both the large and small intestines producing results that could determine your symptoms and in turn your diagnosis.

- Is inflammation at the heart of Crohn's Disease?
• Asthma & COPD- Both driven by inflammation of the lungs and airways. Asthma is typically the result of allergies (again still inflammation) and often referred to as a "rash" in the lungs. COPD is the result of long term inflammation that has caused destruction actually plugging the airways.

• Alzheimer’s- Chronic inflammation revs up the transportation of a protein known as amyloid beta protein into the brain leading to neurological damage.

• Cancer- a multi-faceted link driving cancer initiation and promotion as a result of increased production of pro-inflammatory mediators that mediate tumor cell proliferation, transformation, metastasis, survival, invasion, angiogenesis, chemo-resistance and radio-resistance. These molecules are activated by a number of environmental and lifestyle-related factors, which together are thought to drive as much as 90% of all cancers.
