Inflammation and Your Body
I'm writing this to inform that chronic inflammation is the underlying cause of most diseases and chronic pain.
The Classic Signs of Inflammation are redness, swelling, heat, or pain, and to those who believe inflammation is due only to trauma and infection and that without the classic signs, inflammation is not present.
The fact is, inflammation is present in your body without these classic signs.
There are also many other contributing factors which cause inflammation in your body, other than from infection or trauma. Factors such as diet, stress, lack of sleep, and lack of exercise can all cause our cells to release the same inflammatory chemicals that are released with infection and trauma. C-reactive protein would be one example of this.
When these factors become a lifestyle, a state of chronic inflammation develops without these classic signs being present.
Pain and stiffness may develop down the road due to this chronicity. Problems that start to arise may be in your musculoskeletal tissue.
Muscles, joints, bones, and spinal discs may degenerate over time, eventually causing pain due to chronic inflammation created by stress or a pro-inflammatory diet.
Diet-induced inflammation transforms the body into a degenerated state. A heart attack is another example of how pain develops without other signs. Coronary arteries become narrow and less flexible (atherosclerosis), causing the pain and sudden heart attack.
