What Is Inflammation And How To Get Rid Of It
Inflammation is a trending topic in the health & wellness world lately, and for good reason.
You may be hearing it from your doctor, a family member, a colleague, but let’s clear up what it is, how to recognize it and what to do about it.
According to LiveScience, “inflammation is a vital part of the immune system's response to injury and infection. It is the body's way of signalling the immune system to heal and repair damaged tissue, as well as defend itself against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria.”
Sounds like a pretty beneficial and necessary physiological process, right? So, is there actually a downside to inflammation?
Yes! The downside is when inflammation becomes widespread and unrelenting in the body.
However, there’s a pretty big difference between acute inflammation, as described above, and the more detrimental, disease-promoting type of chronic inflammation.
