One of the most important health discoveries of the past 20 years has been that many physical and mental health problems are caused by inflammation.
It’s safe to say that chronic inflammation is a leading cause of chronic disease.
Why it Matters:
Chronic inflammation is a condition that can affect your immune system and can influence all of your organs, tissues, and cells.
Unlike the normal inflammatory response that happens after an injury and goes away within a few days, chronic inflammation is an abnormal response that can last years.
Here are just a few of the ways chronic inflammation can affect your body:
- Chronic inflammation can cause your immune system to function sub-optimally.
- Fatigue, increased blood pressure, insulin resistance, and poor appetite have also been linked to chronic inflammation.
- Heart disease and other neurodegenerative disorders have been linked to long-term chronic inflammation.
It’s true. It’s impossible to prevent chronic disease completely, but you have the power to reduce your risk every day.
Eat Bette and exercise well and you’ll lower your levels of inflammation. You’ll also decrease your likelihood of developing a chronic disease.
