Chronic Inflammation has been shown to be responsible for autoimmune diseases, problems in the gut, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer. Drug companies have performed studies trying to show that the use of anti-inflammatory medication does improve inflammation however, their studies on lower back pain have shown these drugs worsen the conditions and pain over time. On the other hand, in our office, we carry Deflame based on Jeffery Bland Ph.D.'s diet will help you reduce inflammation naturally over time with its unique formulation.   Hight dose Tumeric use, also known as Curcumin is often used in our office to reduce inflammation as well however the intention is different. The journey of reducing inflammation should begin in the gut.  Eating the right green leafy vegetables feeds the gut and helps you develop a better normal flora which improves health and reduces the likelihood of chronic disease development. The idea that you have this or that disease and you must take a drug to manage it when moving toward better health through food is insane when you think about it. The problem is that management rather than curing conditions safely is often how our medical system approaches care. Curing means there is a treatment and it solves the problem.  Managing means they give you a drug to manage the symptoms or condition which over time usually results in another drug.  This type of treatment construct has resulted in people seeking out other professions for cures.   This may be why so many people are looking for alternative approaches to care to solve and properly diagnose why they have inflammation. Chronic inflammation. leads to the gut. I recently came across a great blog post that discusses the effects of systemic inflammation and what you can do about it.

Chronic Inflammation is Insidious and Dangerous. You May Not Even Know You Have It.

This is “acute” inflammation, a beneficial immune system response that encourages healing, and usually disappears once the injury improves. But chronic inflammation is less obvious and often more insidious. Chronic inflammation begins without an apparent cause — and doesn’t stop. The immune system becomes activated, but the inflammatory response isn’t intermittent, as it is during an acute injury or infection. Rather, it stays on all the time at a low level. Experts think this may be the result of an infection that doesn’t resolve, an abnormal immune reaction or such lifestyle factors as obesity, poor sleep or exposure to environmental toxins. Over time, the condition can, among other things, damage DNA and lead to heart disease, cancer and other serious disorders. Read more
