While inflammation is a natural and essential process of our body whenever it encounters foreign invaders, chronic inflammation is now being seen as a cause of many diseases such as atherosclerosis, arthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, food intolerance, diabetes, heart disease and in some cases even cancer. It also accelerates the aging process. (Source – Department of Health and Human Services and American Heart Association)
Apart from unavoidable conditions, chronic inflammation is caused by our modern lifestyle and eating habit. Stress, Lack of Sleep, Pollution, Smoking, Improper Diet (Sugar, Refined Starch, Trans Fats, Processed Corn, Chemical Additives) are just some of the contributors towards this condition.
