Inflammation and Its Role In Chronic Diseases

By now, many of us know that inflammation is at the core of most chronic illnesses that plague us as Americans. And inflammation is caused by a variety of factors. But first and foremost, our diet is to blame. Pro-inflammatory foods (like processed foods, sugars, and artificial flavors) trigger safety mechanisms within our own bodies that cause inflammation and attack our cell walls. When we reduce the inflammation in our bodies, our immune systems are better able to stop and heal the root causes of our illnesses. Many doctors - alternative and mainstream alike - are recognizing the role inflammation plays in our overall wellness and longevity. However, conventional medicine is overwhelmingly targeting treating symptoms rather than addressing the root causes of our illnesses. For instance, when we have arthritis, many doctors will prescribe a pain medication to treat the symptoms of pain, rather than diving in to see where the inflammation is coming from.
