I am sure you have experienced inflammation at some point in your life. A cut, fall or any other injury is quickly followed by pain, swelling and reduced mobility. This type inflammation is a necessary process and is in fact the first step in healing. Without it wounds would never heal and, as we acquired more injuries, we would inevitably become more debilitated as time progressed.

Internal ‘wounds’ caused by the constant bombardment of free radicals, infections and other foreign substances, never get a chance to fully heal and do just this – resulting in chronic, persistent inflammation that never subsides.

Inflammation now transforms from being an acute healing type of inflammation to one that is destructive in the long run, contributing to a whole host of chronic diseases.

Chronic inflammation is touted as the silent killer because it often presents subtle, almost undetectable symptoms that can be potentially fatal. Once symptoms do become present, they are usually treated without properly evaluating the degree and origins of the inflammation present in the body.

This is unfortunate because it is well known that there are many factors that promote inflammation in the body.  Once these are identified and removed, the inflammatory response has a chance to normalize and the associated symptoms will subside.

Things that promote inflammation:

  • Processed food
  • Chronic infections (bacteria, yeasts, parasites)
  • Food allergies
  • Leaky gut or malabsorption syndrome
  • Blood sugar imbalances – hypoglycemia, pre-diabetes and diabetes
  • Free radicals from environmental toxins
  • Low antioxidant intake
  • Certain nutrient deficiencies
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Stress
  • Virtually all chronic health conditions

Inflammation is an underlying culprit behind virtually all age-related diseases and is directly related to most of the leading causes of death of North America. In addition to obvious diseases such as arthritis, chronic inflammation is also heavily involved in the following health conditions:

  • Inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s, colitis and Celiac’s disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain
  • Reduced joint mobility/loss of joint function
  • Asthma
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Type 2 diabetes

Once we identify the sources of inflammation, we can create a personalized functional medicine and lifestyle program that integrates the necessary dietary, supplement and lifestyle changes needed to reduce pain and inflammation. This is far superior to band-aiding pain with potentially harmful painkillers and steroid medications
