Inflammation is your body’s response to stress and foreign invaders (bacterial, viruses, metals, inorganic compounds, or contact with the outside world in the form of a wound or trauma. )In the case of trauma or acute infection, inflammation is good and protective. However, in our modern increasingly busy and stress filled lives, along with the alarming amount of toxic chemicals in our environment, most of us live with a chronic, low-grade inflammation, that over time, destroys the balance of our bodies and provides fertile ground for serious disease to fester and develop.
In addition, the same chemical environment that exists in your body when you are sick, is the same chemical environment when you are stressed, anxious, angry, sad or depressed. Whether from your diet, stress, infections, or your environment, your body has a common way of mounting a response to what feels harmful.
Once known, we can eliminate these causes of inflammation, and alter the environment known to increase genetic predispositions towards disease states.
