The word inflammation means “to ignite”. When you think of inflammation, think of a smoldering fire. Unless this fire is put out, you will never get healthy. Our first goal of care is to reduce any inflammatory process in your body as much as we can and as quickly as we can.
- When we use the word “systemic inflammation”, we’re referring to inflammation involving your whole body, brain, or widespread inflammation. Your immune system is made up of white blood cells (WBC’s). Inflammation is an activation of your WBC’s in an attempt to remove what doesn’t belong in the body. There are some key concepts we want you to understand. Why? Because if you are not healthy, then you are inflamed.
Systemic Inflammation is the one common thread in ALL chronic illnesses.
