The Number 1 Killer Of Cells In Your Body
Chronic, low-grade inflammation may wreak havoc on ALL the systems in your body.
In fact, many diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer’s, may be preceded by some degree of inflammation.
Now, you may be wondering how you get low-grade inflammation in the first place.
Which is a GREAT question!
Low-grade inflammation, which is different than your normal inflammatory response, may be caused by poor diet, lifestyle and job stress, and physical stress (like when you work out too long!).
Now, if you DON’T change your diet…
Or take care of interpersonal stress…
And you keep working out HARD…
Then you could increase, or even, worsen your levels of inflammation, without even knowing it!
And this could be VERY BAD for your health, especially the health of the cells in your body!
Chronic Inflammation vs. Inflammation
There is a very BIG difference between low-grade, chronic inflammation and your normal inflammatory response.
Now, inflammation itself may help to protect your body, cells, and organs from further injury or damage.
Take for instance when you sprain your ankle.
After the injury occurs, fluid and nutrients rush to the injury to prevent movement from occurring at the joint.
This type of inflammation may be considered acute inflammation, because it occurs when there is an acute injury, and quickly leaves when the injury starts to heal.
Low-grade inflammation, on the other hand, may stay in your body for longer periods of time.
If you don’t think you have experienced chronic inflammation before, then think again!
Some signs of chronic inflammation are:
• Heart disease
• High blood pressure
• And many, many more
There are many factors, such as diet, genetics, lifestyle choices, and your environment that may WORSEN chronic inflammation.
However, there are THREE areas that you need to remedy NOW, if you want to reduce your risk for MORE inflammation, accelerated aging, and increased risk for chronic diseases…
Three Areas of Concern
So here is what may worsen chronic inflammation:
Diet – a diet high in fat, sugar, processed foods, and cholesterol, may increase and worsen your levels of chronic inflammation.
Not only does it increase inflammation, but it may also impair your digestion, health of your intestines, and create other, sometimes serious, conditions in your digestive system.
Environmental/mental Stress - this is a biggie!
Everyone, from time to time, has to deal with stress at your job or in your personal life.
And this stress may lead to increased tightness in your muscular system, constriction of your veins or arteries, and MORE inflammation.
Physical Stress – this is the type of stress associated with overdoing it at the gym.
Working out too hard may lead to damage to the muscles and cells in your body.
And this may also increase your inflammation levels.
What You Can Do
So now that you know a little bit about chronic inflammation and what causes it, now it’s time for the SOLUTION!
If you do these THREE things, you may reduce your inflammation levels, therefore potentially improving your health in the process.
Step 1: Change your Diet
Of course, you already know that diet plays a very large role in your body’s ability to control your inflammation levels.
By cutting or AVOIDING added sugar, trans-fats, cholesterol, and processed foods could limit damage to your digestive system.
And this may lead to lower inflammation levels, weight loss, and overall better health.
Step 2: Reduce Your Stress Levels
Stress plays a larger than life role in your body’s ability to manage and reduce your inflammation.
By taking a relaxing walk, meditation, massage, or hot baths, you may reduce your stress levels.
And this could positively affect your levels of inflammation in the process!
Step 3: Exercise
Exercise, when you don’t overdo it, has been shown to reduce inflammation and stress levels.
Working out has been linked to increased production of GOOD hormones in your brain, which may change and enhance your mood.
Plus, it may reduce your blood pressure and may even reduce pro-inflammatory molecules, which could lower your inflammation levels.
