But what exactly is inflammation – and how can you reduce it naturally?
Inflammation: the body’s natural process
Inflammation is the immune system’s response to damage, and helps fight infection and heal injuries. Damage to the body can arise from trauma, infection, genetic abnormalities, deficiency, metabolic disorders and more.
When an injury occurs, the inflammatory response sets in: white blood cells reach the injury site and begin destroying the damaged cells, while sending chemical signals for more help. Unstable molecules called free radicals are part of this process and help attack the damaged area. The inflammatory response can manifest itself as redness, swelling, heat, pain and/or loss of function.
Eventually, the damaged cells are eradicated and the inflammation recedes. However, when the immune system fails to work properly, inflammation continues, and healthy tissue is damaged – which leads to more inflammation. This cycle can go on unabated; this vicious cycle of inflammation is called chronic inflammation.
Although inflammation may show up as redness, swelling and so on, some forms of chronic inflammation are much more insidious. You may not even see or feel chronic inflammation – and it could be causing trouble in your body right now. Types of chronic inflammation that can affect vital body systems include:

Lifestyle conditions such as poor diet, overweight, stress, lack of physical activity, exposure to toxins and smoking can contribute to chronic inflammation.
Reducing inflammation naturally
Before reaching for a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) or prescription drug, consider this: prescription and over-the-counter anti-inflammatories each come with their own set of risks. Prescription drugs can have a long list of side effects, adverse reactions and interactions, and NSAIDs can have side effects that range from inconvenient to deadly: bleeding ulcers, heart attack, stroke and high blood pressure, to name just a few.
