What's the Connection between Disease and Inflamation?

Inflammation is the bodies way to protect itself for diseases. Working correctly it is one of our bodies natural and best defenses. But like so many other things affected by out modern lifestyles. The inflammatory response is messed up too. Rather than protecting us from disease there are many indications inflammation causes or encourages their spread.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a perfect example of the body perceiving an injury where none exists and launches a sustained attack on cartilage and healthy cells. High levels of inflammation are associated with diabetics and heart problems. And while inflammation doesn't cause cancer. Cancer does need inflammation to grow and spread.

Fat, because it leads to chemical changes in the liver is a primary cause of inflammation. All the foods that lead to Insulin Resistance raise inflammation levels.

So once again, the same song I keep on singing. We have to get back to basics. You need a program that includes eating good food every 2 1/2- 3 hours, drinking 80oz. of pure clean water, getting proper cellular nutrition, eating 6 super foods a day and getting moderate exercise. It is not natural for our bodies to swim in inflammation. We do not have to live with degenertive disease. It's simple to be healthy but most people find it hard to do. Most of us need help. What we can't do alone we can do together. Reach out - there are lots of hands waiting.
