What is Inflammation? Everything You Need to Know and How to Reduce It

Inflammation is the body’s natural healing response to tissue damage – it helps to fight injury and infection, it can be caused by anything from bruised elbow to an aggravated gut barrier. However, inflammation can be both good and bad.

Inflammation, sparked by poor diet, toxic chemicals, and stress, is an inflammatory response that can cause a variety of health symptoms.

Research has shown associations between inflammation and heart disease, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, and more. You may even have symptoms like breakouts, joint pain, or digestive issues without being aware that inflammation is really the cause of it. Not all inflammation will have a major effect on your health, and not all inflammation is permanent, either.
