What Causes Inflammation In Our Bodies?

Aug 18, 2007
Okay, so you wake up in the morning and you feel stiff. You think, "I sure feel my age." Even though you may not have arthritis yet, your body sure is giving you some signs of inflammation....swelling up inside.

You also might start to notice things like your blood sugars suddenly are elevated, or your cholesterol levels have changed for the worse.

Even those extra pounds you might have gained is caused by inflammation! All of the above are just systems which are setting the stage for you to have serious inflammatory diseases.

Years ago the word "inflammation" was only associated with Arthritis. Today inflammation is the leading problem and cause of many different types of heart disease, Alzheimer's, and some cancers.

Normally, inflammation helps fight infections and initiates the healing process after an injury. But it doesn't always routinely fade away.

Sometimes, inflammation festers in one part of the body. Perhaps related to allergies or an injured knee, then spreads out and eventually leads to a cluster of related disorders: the inflammation syndrome.

Many people across the United States and the world, suffer from pain. I bet you did no know that the feelings of pain can be caused from just inflammation!

I never thought about it before until I started this research.

This is what happens. When inflammation occurs, chemicals from your own body's white blood cells get released into your blood or the area of your body that is affected....This is the natural process that your body does to protect itself from foreign substances.

When your body releases the chemicals, this will then increase the blood flow to the area of injury or infection. You may then see some redness or feel a warmth around the area.

The pain that you feel is caused because some of the chemicals cause a leak of fluid into the tissues, resulting in swelling. This protective process may stimulate nerves and cause your pain.

Irritation, swelling of the joints, is caused when the increased number of cells and inflammatory substances within the joint cause the symptoms.

Did you know that inflammation can affect also your internal organs? Sure can.

The types of symptoms depend on which organs are being affected.

#1:

Inflammation of the heart (myocarditis) may cause shortness of breath or fluid retention.

#2:

Inflammation of the small tubes that transport air to the lungs may cause an asthma attack.

#3:

Inflammation of the kidneys (nephritis) may cause high blood pressure or kidney failure.

#4:

Inflammation of the large intestine (colitis) may cause cramps and diarrhea.

This is why I believe in natural products to take the swelling down within my body. We can not see what goes on inside our bodies...

We only know something is wrong when we feel the pain.
