Inflammation is a silent killer behind virtually all age-related diseases.
If you have absolutely no idea about inflammation, it is a natural body response that’s triggered when you experience any type of injury, allergy, or infection. A certain degree of healthy inflammation is needed to protect us when the body encounters foreign invaders or malignant cells.
However, for most people, the problem arises when the response is too intense or doesn’t “turn off” on cue and your body builds up an excessive amount of inflammation that spreads to every cell.
That’s when inflammation becomes the lethal killer that destroys tissues, causing serious sickness, disease, and pain.
As you age, the delicate balance between protective and destructive inflammation is destroyed, and your immune system against infectious agents is significantly reduced.
And here are some of the common diseases most people are facing because of inflammation
Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints. Nearly 52 million modern Americans suffer from some form of the disease, almost 23% of the adult population.
Both major forms of arthritis, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, involve excessive inflammatory responses.
The synovial membrane (synovium) is attacked, resulting in swelling and pain. If left untreated the arthritis can lead to deformity. Scientists know that the enzymes cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) are major causes of joint inflammation.
That’s why you may take medications – such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which block COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes, or COX-2 inhibitors – to treat your arthritis.
The most common side effect from all NSAIDs is damage to the gastrointestinal tract, which includes your esophagus, stomach, and small intestine. More than half of all bleeding ulcers are caused by NSAIDs.
Eight percent of Americans—18 million people—endure environmental allergies such as hay fever. Another 8.2% of Americans—18.7 million—suffer from asthma.
These conditions are related. Both are driven by an overreaction of the immune system and resulting inflammation.
Nasal congestion and weepy eyes are the recognized symptoms of hay fever, the most common environmental allergy. Underlying these symptoms are marked increases in a host of pro-inflammatory factors.
These inflammatory factors include cytokines, such as interleukins, antibodies called IgE, and immune cells called eosinophils.
About 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year – that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.
Dr. Dwight Lundell, a heart surgeon with 25 years of vast experience, states: “The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated”
Without inflammation, cholesterol might not be harmful at all. Cholesterol may actually play an important role in inducing an inflammatory responses in the arterial wall. Thus, without cholesterol there would probably be no inflammation. Therefore, it is quite likely that cholesterol and inflammation both play an important role for the genesis of cardiovascular disease.
It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to be trapped.
These are just 3 common yet painful illnesses and diseases that affect most people and the sole reason behind all of these are destructive inflammation.
Fortunately, scientists have discovered a formula to reverse this deadly process... Continue reading in the next page..
