While there are numerous chronic ailments and a variety of aches and pains you might suffer from, all of them have one thing in common – they all begin with inflammation. This does not mean that inflammation is a bad thing. It is the normal response of the body to any kind of tissue damage. Whenever tissuss are injured, biochemical messengers are released that initiate an inflammation repsonse. This response activates the immune system to check the injured area for invading microbes. It also sequesters the damaged area to slow the spread of any toxins introduced via the injury and triggers pain to alert you of the problem.
Once infection is contained and toxins are neutralized, a new set of biochemical messengers are released. These messengers turn off the inflammatory response and begin the process of healing. When this doesn’t happen, inflammation starts to become chronic and that’s not good.
In cases of chronic inflammation, what was intended as a mechanism to slow the spread of irritants and control infection now becomes an impairment to normal tissue function. it inhibits circulation, depriving the affected tissues of vital oxygen, nutrients, and waste removal. The chronically activated immune system can also begin damaging otherwise healthy tissues. This can lead to autoimmune reactions and degenerative disease. Furthermore, the sharp pain associated with acute inflammation, which informs you that you have been injured now becomes dull aches and constant discomfort.
