Inflammation is the latest buzz word, popping up everywhere in the world of nutrition and health. Why eat an anti-inflammatory diet? What's food got to do with it? Let's begin with the typical definition of inflammation: acute inflammation is a cascade of metabolic immune system reactions in response to harmful stimuli. In other words, something causes harm to bodily tissues. It could be a specific trauma like a cut, or it could be viruses, bacteria, or chemicals that become too numerous. The signs you might notice are pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function. You feel the heat because blood flow begins to increase in the site of inflammation, fluids build up and this pushes on nerve endings causing pain. There are some cells the immune system sends to the site that will try to eat the bad stuff, while other cells are like soldiers sent in with guns that shoot chemicals to kill the bad guys. If it is not resolved, you lose function… If resolved properly, the cascade stops and goes back to normal, and healing results. Inflammation is meant to protect and initiate healing in the tissues. That is the kind of inflammation we are most familiar with. There is also chronic inflammation, or unresolved and continuous low grade inflammation. The continuous cascade of immune reactions never stops, and can actually cause the body to begin attacking itself, as in all autoimmune disorders. This kind of inflammation is also responsible for most chronic degenerative conditions like cancer, heart disease, diabetes I and II, psoriasis, fibromyalgia, and more. The conditions on the top of list, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes are poised to break our health care system in unbearable amounts of cost in treatments. And for the most part, they are preventable with proper lifestyle habits! You can see problems in our health care system happening right now if you look closely… Insurance is so expensive, hardly anyone can actually afford to be covered. Then when you are covered by some detailed and fancy sounding, outrageously expensive policy, they don't actually want to pay for anything. They will catch you on little details, make you pay part of the cost, or decide to not pay at all. Managing and reversing inflammation on your own, through natural means is far less expensive than getting hooked to pharmaceuticals, that appear to help, as you continually climb to the next rung on the disease ladder and add more drugs to manage more symptoms as time goes by. Starting with square one; your diet, can be the most socially responsible and personally empowering thing you do. What do foods have to do with inflammation? Food sensitivities, undigested foods, dead dried up, chemically laden processed, over heated poor food-like substances can cause the cascade of inflammation to rip through your system; stemming from various causes like leaky gut, not enough stomach acid, compromised liver, gall bladder, pancreas, or the foods are simply rejected by your immune system. Everyday, the wrong foods add to inflammation, stir up old inflammation, continue the cycle of inflammation over and over until your body can't stop the runaway train that becomes a chronic condition. Can you reverse it? Yes and, how much function you can recover depends on the damage done. The body has an beautiful and innate ability to heal on it's own under the right conditions. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet puts your immune system at ease and helps to allow the body to begin the healing process. If your immune system is continuously firing off in inflammatory cascades, it has less ammunition to contribute to fighting colds, flu, respiratory infections, stomach bugs and so on. You may notice that you get sick more often and more severely. How often are you home sick? How often do you find yourself needing those antibiotics? Am anti-inflammatory diet also means immune boosting because the immune system can finally work on other things. David Ogden CEO TheInterbiz LLC
