Inflammation is a general term that refers to how your body responds when it is disturbed. The response comes in the form of internal chemical reactions. There are too many to mention here, and I wouldn’t want to bore you with a bunch of biochemistry. Inflammation could often be a good thing. When you are injured or ill, you need an inflammatory response to help you repair tissue or fight illness. However, inflammation also has the potential to damage tissue and interfere with metabolism, detoxification, and immune function, so you don’t want it going on all the time. It’s sort of like inviting a contractor into your house. They can build or repair things, but they also disrupt your house and life while they’re there. You wouldn’t want them around all the time. Unfortunately, something as ordinary as eating can generate unhealthy inflammation. If you eat foods that are high in sugar or eat foods to which you are sensitive, you will generate inflammation. Long term inflammation can lead to a variety of problems, such as:

As you can see, it is vitally important to control inflammation. The first step is trying to identify the source of any chronic inflammation and try to eliminate it. Once inflammation is found, it is a constant battle to keep it under control but can be done through a comprehensive health maintenance program.
