How to know if you have inflammation

  1. 1. Magnet For Disease? In the past few years, the root cause of many health issues has been attributed to chronic inflammation. There have been studies suggesting that in many of the complaints and diseases we as a culture have seen a rapid rise in; such as osteoporosis, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and the skin disorder, psoriasis; chronic inflammation lies at heart of it all.
  2. 2. What Is Inflammation? Everything is about balance. Our bodies need a small amount of inflammation to maintain good health. This is known as Acute Inflammation. There’s a delicate balance of give-and-take when our bodies are working smoothly and properly. For instance, with an allergic reaction or infection, the release of these pro- inflammatory compounds is done easily and efficiently.
  3. 3. However, infection or injury trigger a chain of events — heat, pain, redness, and swelling — the familiar signs of normal inflammation. This is called the Inflammatory Cascade; and is the first signal that your immune system is being called into action.
  4. 4. It is like the militia. The war starts when inflammation (the battle) begins. Pro-inflammatory hormones (the captains) in your body call out (give an order) for your white blood cells (your soldiers) to come and clear out infection and damaged tissue (the threat). Once the threat is neutralized, equally powerful, closely related anti-inflammatory compounds (medics), move in to begin the healing process.
  5. 5. How Can You Tell If Your Inflammatory Response is Healthy? When needed, our bodies are programmed to respond to the threat to repair any resulting damage. When the identified infectious or dangerous substance has been addressed, anti-inflammatory compounds are released and our bodies return to a balanced state.
  6. 6. The Difference Acute Inflammation is inflammation that ebbs and flows as needed. It signifies a well-balanced immune system. Chronic Inflammation is when symptoms of inflammation don’t recede. Even when you aren’t in imminent danger, it’s poised on high alert. The “on” switch to your immune system just won’t shut off — it’s stuck.
  7. 7. Is There a Test? Currently there is no definitive test for inflammation. Conventional medicine doesn’t have a diagnosis or test available to determine the cause of chronic or systemic inflammation.
  8. 8. If There Is No Test, How Do I Know? You have to look for the symptoms which can be associated with low grade chronic inflammation.
  9. 9. What To Look For  Skin outbreaks  Diarrhea  Shortness of breath  Body aches and pains  Weight gain  Swelling  Dry eyes  Stiffness  Congestion  Frequent infections  Fuzzy thinking  High triglycerides  High cholesterol  Overweight  Unhappy and stressed  Flushed  Fluttery and agitated  Irritable bowel symptoms  Lack of exercise  Unhealthy diet Some practitioners believe that on the surface, this is the look of a heart disease candidate — on fire from the inside out.
  10. 10. The Good News Because inflammation can present in so many different ways, it’s safe to say that a large part of the population is walking around on “simmer.” There are so many people with symptoms of inflammation; that it’s becoming the norm, not the exception. This means we are setting ourselves up for problems as we age. The sky-rocketing rates of allergies, obesity, IBS, and chronic pain don’t lie. The good news is, once we understand what causes inflammation; we can choose actions that can either fan or cool the flames. We can choose daily to make better choices that bring us back into balance.
