Inflammation influences many aspects of your physical and emotional health. Whether you are dealing with ADD/ADHD, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, pain, peripheral neuropathy, stroke, migraines, thyroid issues, dental issues, or cancer then you are dealing with inflammation.

Most of us are shocked to hear this. We usually think of inflammation as heat or swelling, but it is more complex than that. Inflammation (from Latin inflammatio) is part of the complex biological response of body tissues to harmful stimuli, such aspathogens, damaged cells, or irritants,and is a protective response involving immune cellsblood vessels, and molecular mediators. The function of inflammation is to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury, clear out necrotic cells and tissues damaged from the original insult and the inflammatory process, and to initiate tissue repair.

The classical signs of inflammation are heat, pain, redness, swelling, and loss of function. Inflammation is a generic response, and therefore it is considered as a mechanism of innate immunity, as compared to adaptive immunity, which is specific for each pathogen.[2] Too little inflammation could lead to progressive tissue destruction by the harmful stimulus (e.g. bacteria) and compromise the survival of the organism. In contrast, chronic inflammation may lead to a host of diseases, such as hay feverperiodontitis,atherosclerosisrheumatoid arthritis, and even cancer (e.g., gallbladder carcinoma). Inflammation is therefore normally closely regulated by the body. There are also many health problems that are a response to  inflammmation

Many  of us are suffering from one or more of these disorders but have no idea how to eliminate inflammation. Most doctors are utilizing pharmaceuticals in lieu of getting to the root cause.

It often seems extremely foreign to most people when they realize the majority of inflammatory diseases start in the gut with an autoimmune reaction which progresses into systemic inflammation. To truly be effective at managing or hopefully overcome a disease it needs to be addressed on all levels. Taking a look at where this process starts is the key.
