How to Tame Chronic Inflammation- The Silent Killer
Inflammation is considered by many to be the “Silent Killer”. Our lifestyle can play a major role in controlling the amount of inflammation in our bodies.
Inflammation is an immunological defense mechanism that can be a lifesaver when it helps to fight off various attacks from bacteria, viruses, and pathogens. If you cut your finger, the inflammation response takes place at the site of trauma to help heal the injury. In these acute situations, inflammation is necessary and can be a lifesaver.
