Inflammation is a process where the body releases white blood cells and chemicals to protect from injury, infection and foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses.
Symptoms of inflammation as a result of an injury may involve:
- Pain Redness Swollen joints Loss of joint function
Inflammation is a life supporting mechanism that helps the body cope as a result of an injury whether it is physical or by a foreign invader. Chronic inflammation can be a problem and often prevents proper regeneration and repair.
Inflammation symptoms are generally linked to the organ or area of the body that is inflamed. For example if you have an irritated digestive system or food intolerance, then your symptoms may show up as gas, bloating or cramping.
- Avoiding foods that aggravate your system can help. Taking a digestive aid such as Advanced Digestive Enzymes can help the body break down the food that is causing the problem.
- The key is to decrease inflammation in the area of the body that is irritated. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower the risk of some chronic diseases. Deep sea fish such as salmon, cod, or halibut are high in omega-3 fatty acids.
- Advanced EPA/DHA is a natural supplement that is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Healthy fact: Eat or avoid certain foods that may aggravate the system. Take natural supplements that help reduce inflammation.
