What is Chronic Inflammation?
It's what happens when the body's natural healing process of inflammation becomes harmful and continues long after the original response was first needed. Chronic inflammation can occur everywhere in the body and plenty of research indicates it is a common trigger and contributor to multiple chronic diseases. It may also be the result of poor lifestyle and dietary choices and/or environmental factors.
Testing for Chronic Inflammation is Simple
This silent attack on the body can now be detected with a simple, non-invasive urine test. The Chronic Inflammation Test is an indirect measure of inflammation in the body enabling you to identify and monitor inflammation risk. The Chronic Inflammation Test Score™ may alert you to recommend changes in diet and lifestyle or indicate the need for an appropriate medical diagnosis and timely treatment.
As a doctor, my job is to find those inflammatory factors unique to each person and to see how various lifestyle, environmental, or infectious factors spin the immune system out of control, leading to a host of chronic illnesses.
The presence of inflammation is what makes most disease perceptible to an individual … How long it has been smoldering really determines the degree of severity of a disease and often the prognosis assuming the inflammation can be controlled.
...uncontrolled inflammation plays a role in almost every major disease, including cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and even depression.
The definition of cellular inflammation is increased activity of the gene transcription factor know as Nuclear Factor-kappaB (NF-κB) … This also means that appropriate use of the diet can either turn on or turn off the activation of NF-κB. This new knowledge is the foundation of anti-inflammatory nutrition.
All of the knowledge that we have gained over the years has now come together to one central theme. Most chronic diseases, including cancer, result from inflammation. Reducing inflammation reduces all kinds of problems. Our efforts must be focused in that direction.
