Inflammation is a function of the body’s immunity, but inflammation even slightly more than average, 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 associated inflammation with all significant conditions, including debilitating:
- Alzheimer’s: The Scientific Evidence shows that inflammation in the brain, produced by your own immune system, contributes to illness and increases the risk of other illnesses
- Heart disease
- Signs of aging. Researchers are not sure if the inflammation causes aging or aging causes the appearance of the swelling or both, but I’m sure that the two are connected.
- Diabetes: Research shows that resistance to cause inflammation to develop insulin and insulin resistance causes more inflammation what forms a vicious circle.
How does inflammation appear?
The stress caused by inflammation can come from many sources.
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 raises cortisol levels. (Cortisol increases inflammation)
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 is 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 addresses (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 that 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 conflict 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 right 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 correctly. This is just one of the processes in which inflammation is long-term or chronic inflammation is involved.
How to reduce inflammation:
Inflammation reduction means reducing stress. And as we know, the sources of stress are numerous. There are many ways to overcome them.
Avoid or eliminate certain foods. I.e., sugar, fats, proteins, excess alcohol, and any other foodstuff to which you may be allergic to, or have any tenderness.
Maintain a healthy weight
Exercise: Small intensity workouts or moderate-intensity.
Healthy fats: Most Westerners have a diet with a low omega 3 fats that reduce inflammation. These include the oil and seeds, oils, and seeds of hemp, chia, or Brazilian nuts.
Beets: The red color shows the presence of a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
Leafy greens such as spinach and lettuce contain an antioxidant carotenoid, which reduces inflammation.
Onions and garlic contain quercetin, a powerful antioxidant that helps the body fight inflammation.
Turmeric and Ginger: Many herbs and spices reduce inflammation due to the concentration of antioxidants, but the best one is turmeric.
