Inflammation

Inflammation is the body’s natural response to safeguard against foreign bacteria, viruses, and infection. When it senses a threat, the body will trigger the release of chemicals and white blood cells, which are germ fighters. However, there are inflammatory conditions, or autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid or osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. The above conditions trigger an inflammatory response, even when there is no threat. The result damages internal tissues, causes high blood pressure, painfully swollen and stiff joints, and encourages the growth of abnormal cells. To assist in combating inflammation, I have provided a list of food to familiarize yourself with.
