Inflamation hurts Overtly and Covertly

When you sprain an ankle, the pain you feel is inflamation. Thats pretty straight forward and understandable. Your ankle may swell and hurt for a while, but you expect that swelling to go down and the pain to subside.

But what about other conditions internally that cause pain, is it also inflamation? Recent research suggest that it is. In fact, there is at minimum a low grade amount of it going on in our bodies all the time.

Toxic pollutants are everywhere, in our water, food, and the environment where we live, work and play. Actually, Inflamation is a response to all manner of stresses, i.e. emotional, physical, and mental.

It has to be understood that attacks at the cellular level is at the root of all disease and discomfort. Healthy cells get attacked by toxins and free radicals and the inflamation process begins.

At the cellular level is where everything takes place. New cells are born, old cells die, toxic contamination occurs and so on. Keeping cells healthy will control all diseases and chronic conditions. This is a quantum leap in knowledge from just 10 years ago.

Scientists are now drawing links to a variety of chronic conditions:

  • All Types Of Pain
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer's Diaease
  • Gum Disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Respiratory Problems

At the lower levels, you may not see or feel the effects of inflamation. It could over time contribute to the formation of plaque in blood vessels, play a role in Alzheimer's disease, distroy ligaments and tendons as well as joint cartilage, and so on.

The more we learn about cellular biology, the more control we can have over disease and inflamation, and it's warning signs.
