New Study Finds Inflammation Is Cause Of Almost Every Disease: What You Can Do About It

Written by: Kat Gal

Did you know that there’s one major thing that contributes to heart disease, cancer, neurodegenerative disease and disease of the gut, all top killers on our planet? It is chronic inflammation in your body.

If you are experiencing pain, fatigue, sluggishness, lack of motivation, disease and other health complaints, there is a good chance that you may also be dealing with chronic inflammation. Read on to learn more about chronic inflammation and how to put an end to it.

Ancient medicine across the world from China to India to South America has believed that inflammation is the main cause of disease and stopping it is the best way to prevent its progression. Today even modern medicine agrees that inflammation has a contributory role in disease. A recent anti-inflammatory drug tested on 10,000 patients in a global clinical trial has shown its potential to reduce the risk for heart attacks, strokes and lung cancer.

While the study shows evidence that reducing inflammation can reduce the development and progression of disease in your body, it doesn’t mean you have to reach for anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals. You can learn from ancient wisdom and reduce inflammation naturally instead.

Inflammation Is the Root Cause Of Disease

Inflammation is a normal physiological response to injuries and foreign pathogens entering your body.

While modern medicine understands that reducing inflammation is crucial, they tend to focus on the symptoms of the disease, throwing medicine to treat those symptoms or to mask them instead of looking at the underlying causes.

Traditional medicine, like Chinese and Ayurvedic traditions, focus on the root issue and your whole system instead. For example, the underlying cause of heart disease is inflammation of the arteries, arthritis happens because of inflammation in your joints and depression may be caused by inflammation in your gut.

What do you think the common root cause of illnesses is? You’re right, it’s inflammation!

Acute Vs Chronic Inflammation

Inflammation is not always bad. It is your body’s natural response to fight viruses, bacteria and other invaders and to repair damaged cells in your body. It can help your body to heal. 

You see, there are two kinds of inflammation: acute and chronic.

Acute inflammation is a friend. If you cut yourself or fall, for example, the redness, bruising, swelling and pain are all there to protect you and to speed up the healing process. Same thing if you catch a cold or a tummy bug. Acute inflammation only lasts for a few days to a few weeks, until the issues are resolved.

Chronic inflammation, however, is a sign that things got out of hand. Chronic inflammation is caused by lifestyle choices, like a toxic diet, lack of exercise, lack of sleep, too much stress, an altered gut flora and so on. Your body sees the bad food, all the stress, the environmental distress and the lack of care as invaders and tries to fight them through inflammation. The problem is that these bad guys are not going away, so your body keeps fighting and fighting them without results and ends up mistaking inflammation itself for a disease, killing off its own tissue and mistaking it for a foreign pathogen.

It’s crazy, but it’s true that chronic inflammation is your body’s way of attacking itself, leading to weird symptoms like unhappy joints, tummy troubles, depression, brain fog, pain and more.

Chronic inflammation can last for months, years and even a lifetime unless you put a stop to it with better food and good lifestyle choices.

The power is in your hands. You can take charge of your health and fight chronic inflammation naturally.
