Stop your decline into harmful inflammation

We Americans are an inflamed bunch.

Our levels of chronic inflammation continue to skyrocket and trigger diseases of all kinds, including our two main killers—heart disease and cancer.

But chronic inflammation doesn’t just POOF! appear out of nowhere.  Instead, it’s a gradual process, and once you know how it happens, you can do a lot to fight and prevent it…and avoid being another morbid statistic.

It all starts with warning signs called irritation…

Something wrong in there?
When something is wrong in your body, you typically don't jump from feeling great one day to flat on your back the next.  Instead what you get first are subtle warnings from your body that something is not quite right, and these warnings come in the form of "irritation." 

Irritation can be things like skin rashes, hives or acne.  An itchy nose is another form of irritation, and so is frequent flatulence!

Other examples of irritation are sleeping difficulties, increased body odor, bad breath, nervousness, lethargy, moodiness, loss of appetite and nausea.  These are all gentle nudges that your body gives you to let you know something isn't right.

Now, when the average person gets symptoms of irritation, what do they usually do?

Yup--it's off to the drug store you go.  Over the counter drugs and products are available for just about anything that's bugging you.  Pain relievers.  Gas or acid reducers.  Skin creams. 
Mouthwashes.  Scented body washes.  Laxatives.  Energy pills and drinks.  Sleep or relaxation aids.
Unfortunately, these chemicals only mask the symptoms of your particular irritation--they do positively nothing for what's really going on inside of you.

Your graduation to inflammation

If you continue to simply rely on drug store remedies and do nothing to address what's truly behind your irritation, the situation can deteriorate into full-blown inflammation.

Now, it's important to note that all inflammation is NOT created equal--it can be acute or chronic.
Acute inflammation is your body's natural response to challenges like infections, injuries or insect bites.  It's a sign that your body's "repairmen" (including your immune cells and cholesterol) have come to your rescue and are doing their job to "fix" the problem and get you back to normal.

Once the healing process is underway, acute inflammation naturally subsides.

But chronic inflammation is another story.

This is when inflammation is NOT related to an isolated, temporary health challenge, but instead is caused by other underlying factors and becomes more constant and long-term.

In addition to heart disease and cancer, chronic inflammation manifests itself as conditions like:
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Eczema
  • Crohn's disease and colitis
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Migraines
  • Myositis (muscle pain)
  • Accelerated aging
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Degenerative joint disease
Unfortunately, when you get to the point where you're facing one of those monsters, that's when the "big guns" come out.  

Prescription drugs.  Pharmaceuticals.    

And it's all downhill from there!

Because the underlying problem just continues to progress.  So your symptoms can get worse and worse and you'll need stronger and stronger drugs.

That vicious cycle of more symptoms-stronger drugs, more symptoms-stronger drugs is exactly what millions of people are living every single day.

Am I talking to you?  If so, listen up!  Because I am about to tell you how you can help fight chronic inflammation.

NOT with more drugs or chemicals.

Instead by listening to your body and giving it the help it needs:

Curb acid-triggering wastes

Acid wastes that are absorbed into your bloodstream and travel through your body are a significant cause of inflammation.

Acid wastes can be the result of poor digestion, chemicals, and preservatives in processed foods, normal cell metabolism, and medication residue.  When these waste products become more than what your body can effectively eliminate through the colon, kidney, liver, or skin, they build up and trigger inflammation.

So reducing acid wastes is crucial to controlling inflammation!

You can start by having an alkalinizing diet.  Try to make at least half of your plate alkaline foods (fruits and vegetables) and eat a tossed salad every day.  Certain acid foods are OK, but you have to know the good from the bad.

Good acid foods are meats, poultry, fish, and dairy.   Bad acid foods to avoid are refined carbs, sugars, soda, processed foods and excessive alcohol intake.

Also, drink at least eight 8 oz. glasses of water a day, and if you must have coffee, try to limit your consumption to one cup in the morning.

Lastly, although medications are sometimes necessary, we’ve gone WAY overboard with our reliance on them.  If you are on any medications, talk to your doctor about reducing your dose or trying natural alternatives, such as fish oil for high blood pressure.  If your doctor refuses to discuss your meds, find one who will.

Get enough Omega-3 essential fatty acids
A deficiency in Omega-3 essential fatty acids is also a leading cause of inflammation, and our typical modern processed food diets are grossly lacking in these natural anti-inflammatories.

Although fatty fish are a good source of Omega-3s, much of the fish in the supermarkets is farmed and contaminated with disease and pollutants, which makes them more harmful than helpful!

So to make sure your body maintains a health-supporting level of Omega-3 EFAs, supplementation with a top-quality pharmaceutical-grade fish oil formula is essential.

Beef up your intestinal microbiome
The vast majority of your immune cells reside in your gut microbiome, and since inflammation is an immune response gone haywire, it’s important to encourage healthy immune functioning by starting with a healthy gut.

In addition to a nutritious alkalinizing diet, supplementing with a full-spectrum, multi-strain probiotic formula can help ensure that your intestinal flora balance is one that supports sound immune functioning.
