Anti-inflammatory

So let's look at the obvious, what does anti-inflammatory mean?

Anti - to go against or opposed to

Inflammation - a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection.

So how do we go against inflammation or be opposed to inflammation? We must first understand where the inflammation has started from.

Inflammation is a vital part of the body's immune response. It is the body's attempt to heal itself after an injury, defend itself against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria and repair damaged tissue. Without inflammation, wounds would not heal and infections could become every serious or even deadly.

There are two types of inflammation: acute and chronic (sometimes called systemic) inflammation.

Acute inflammation arises after a cut or break in the skin, an infected ingrown nail, a sprained ankle, acute bronchitis, a sore throat, tonsillitis or appendicitis. It is short-term and the effects subside after a few days.

Chronic inflammation is long-term and occurs in “wear and tear” conditions, including osteoarthritis, and autoimmune diseases, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn’s disease,

Habitual or environmental factors, such as excess weight, poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, smoking, pollution, poor oral health and excessive alcohol consumption can also lead to chronic inflammation.

Often acute inflammation is perceived as "good," because it is the body’s attempt to heal itself after an injury, and chronic inflammation as "bad". Whether acute or chronic, inflammation “is the body’s natural response to a problem, so it makes us aware of issues that we might not otherwise acknowledge.

So you can see inflammation in the body is necessary to give us the signs that there is something wrong, it is also the amazing part of our body that goes into fighting and protecting yourself through the immune system.

 

When we think of an anti-inflammatory we can sometimes go straight to the thought of taking a medication when really our best anti-inflammatory is our own immune response. If we are able to lift our immune response to the best fighting ability it can be, that is the most perfect natural anti-inflammatory that we can offer ourselves.

 

As discussed above environmental factors external to the body like pollutions and internal factors like diet and lifestyle all play a role in how much our body is able to fight infection.

 

The best anti-inflammatory we could take for ourselves are the ones that are naturally provided through our foods.

 

These include Turmeric, Garlic, Ginger, Berries, Paw Paw, Lemon, Lime, Capsicum

 

Tumeric is a big Focus Point in the industry at the moment and by rights it should be. The anti-inflammatory properties that turmeric offers have been there for thousands and thousands of years, not only does it have anti-inflammatory properties but also helps the body's whole state by giving support through other systems and organs like digestive and liver.

 

By introducing these foods into your daily diet you are giving your body a huge boost in the support mechanisms needed when fighting any inflammation in the body.

 

With the amount of research done on turmeric the quality you can get through supplementation these days is fantastic and with chronic illness, arthritis and pain so prolific in today's modern world taking a quality supplement is highly recommended to give your body the boost it needs.

Testimonial

"After more than 35 Years of emotional and physical heartache which has manifested into years of ill health, I can finally say I AM FREE.. WOW!! Even writing that makes me smile. Obviously I still need medical treatment, but to have that clarity is so over whelming. I am crying with joy now not sadness and frustration."
