Inflammation, A Phenomenon That Kills Slowly But Certainly

Inflammation is a function of the body’s immunity, but inflammation even slightly more than normal, it may seriously damage health.

Too much inflammation in the body does not mean you have to feel pain or swelling. Inflammation is the body’s reaction to stress, disease, and problems with which each of us faces every day.

Inflammation may be a trigger factor in many serious diseases. Researches associate inflammation with all major diseases, including debilitating: 


  1. Alzheimer’s: The Scientific Evidence shows that inflammation in the brain, produced by your own imnuitar, contribute to disease and increase neonate neuropa risk it.
  2. Arthritis
  3. Heart disease
  4. Cancer
  5. Signs of aging. Researchers are not sure if the inflammation causes aging or aging causes the appearance of the inflammation or both, but I’m sure that the two are connected.
  6. Diabetes: Research shows that resistance to cause inflammation to develop insulin and insulin resistance causes more inflammation what form a vicious circle.

How does inflammation appear?

The stress caused by inflammation can come from many sources.

These include: 

Physical Stress: (Stretching the muscle Damage or burns, and frostbite is.) Minor infections bacterial, viral and fungal. Food allergies or food sensitivities, chronic minor. Emotional stress-that raise cortisol levels. (Cortisol increases inflammation)

Physical Stress

Environmental toxicity: Metals and other contaminants from water and from the air. Toxicity from eating: too many fats, protein, and alcohol.

Obesity: Fat cells produce chemicals that lead to inflammation.

Inflammation in the body acts as: Regardless of the source of inflammation, the body’s response is the same. The immune system reacts and struggling with all outsiders.

For example: When you cut yourself your body automatically sends the blood in that area and send (among other things) the killer white blood cells that surround any bacteria that would occur in the area and a ‘ burn ‘ with oxidative chemicals. It’s like a defensive army which destroys invaders. This type of inflammation is called acute inflammation-an amazing process that protects health.

Unfortunately, we have so many stress factors in life that this ‘ war ‘ can last forever. In any war appears collateral damage and, in this case, a portion of these damages can be healthy tissues.

Sometimes, the body doesn’t know when to stop. Loses the ability to distinguish between the good parts and the bacteria and viruses that invade the body. It attacks the healthy tissue and destroys sensitive substances and hormonal balance which do all systems of the body to function properly. This is just one of the processes in which inflammation is long-term or chronic inflammation are involved.

How to reduce inflammation:

reduce inflammation

Inflammation reduction means reducing stress. And as we know the sources of stress are numerous, there are many ways to reduce them.
