Chronic Inflammation: The Root Cause of a Multitude of Diseases

Inflammation is more common than you would think. It can cause stroke, heart attack and even cancer. It starts as a slow burn inside of your body and acts like an emergency responding to an infection and injury.

The tender throbbing hot spots that we feel uncomfortable are actually part of your body’s natural response. It means your immune system is sending the internal signal to watch white blood cells and protein to destroy infection and heal injuries. But if the inflammation lingers after the job is done or your immune system becomes confuse and misfires by accident, what once your best friend can quickly become your worst enemy.

When inflammation becomes chronic, your body’s natural defense system takes a turn for the worst by starting a sneak attack on your joints, tissue and blood vessels wreaking havoc on all of those areas that were once pain-free. That’s when the slow burning drop becomes a five-alarm fire.

For years, researchers have found that chronic inflammation can be linked to rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and asthma. But the newest and most modern research shows a lot more. Chronic inflammation can very well be at the heart, the life threatening diseases that we all fear the most – cancer, heart attack, diabetes and even Alzheimer’s. Is chronic inflammation eating away your body?
