Inflammation & You......

Updated: Mar 18

What you need to know.......

Inflammation is a natural process that occurs when the body's immune system responds to an injury, infection, or irritation. It is an essential part of the body's defense mechanism and helps to protect the body from further damage by initiating the healing process.

During the inflammation process, the body releases chemicals, including cytokines and prostaglandins, which cause blood vessels to dilate, leading to increased blood flow to the affected area. This increased blood flow causes redness and warmth at the site of inflammation. The immune system also sends white blood cells to the area to fight off any infection or foreign invaders.

While inflammation is usually a normal response to injury or infection, chronic inflammation can lead to a range of health problems, including autoimmune disorders, allergies, and chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.
