fighting inflammation for optimal health

It's well known that inflammation is the normal, healthy response of the body's immune system when tissues and cells are threatened by injury or infection.  However, when chronic, unrelieved inflammation is involved, you are at risk for developing other chronic diseases including heart disease, diabetes, fibromyalgia, arthritis,and autoimmune diseases, to name a few. Inflammation is a sign that a disease process is in progress and worsening.

potential triggers of inflammation

Allergies, anemia, osteoarthritis, pulmonary disease such as asthma, autoimmune diseases, cancer, Alzheimer's, gastrointestinal disorders can cause chronic inflammation. Silent inflammation is another culprit to living a healthy life and can lead to serious health conditions. Some symptoms of silent inflammation are chronic urinary tract infections, recurring sinus infections, chronic fatigue, gastrointestinal issues, headaches, dizziness, mood swings, and joint pain. 

Another point to understand is when your immune system is constantly responding to substances like certain foods that you assume is harmless to your body, but nevertheless cause the immune system to treat it as a threat, chronic inflammation may be the result.
