Many people associate inflammation with all negatives when that is simply not the case. All injuries incur a certain amount of inflammation which is the bodies natural ability to clean up the injury. The body produces Leukocytes which help the injured area to heal. The problem lies in chronic inflammation and how to deal with it. One must undergo a series of tests to check markers and basically find out exactly what the culprit is which is causing chronic inflammation rather then acute. There are many factors attributed to chronic inflammation such as diet, poor sleep, no exercise and many others one must investigate to reach a logical conclusion.
- Inflammation is usually a symptom in any disease from arthritis to depression to Crohn’s disease.
- When hurting the body releases the inflammatory mediator, bradykinin, which alerts us of pain sensitivity so we don’t use the affected area.
- Chronic inflammation causes range from bad diet to low omega 3 and omega 6 intake to poor sleep.
“The blood vessels become more permeable, thus allowing the plasma and leukocytes to flow through the vessel walls and into the injured tissue to do their work. Emigration of plasma into tissue also means fluid buildup, which means swelling.”
