5 steps to combat chronic inflammation

Inflammation is the body’s natural response to try and heal itself from illness or injury.

When something damages our cells, our bodies release chemicals that trigger a response from our our immune system.

However there are 2 types:

  • Acute Inflammation.
  • Chronic Inflammation

Acute inflammation usually only lasts a few days or maybe even hours, whereas chronic inflammation remains longer and can lead to other serious symptoms such as:

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Some cancers
  • Mood disorders like anxiety & depression
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Joint pain
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Frequent infections and illnesses

In this video I talk you through 5 things you can do right now to reduce inflammation in your body:

Or if you’d prefer a brief overview, keep reading…

1: Stop smoking. Not only does smoking cause inflammation in the body, it also increases the risk of allergic conditions, the likelihood of developing an autoimmune disease and decreases the immune response to infectious diseases.

2: Exercise moderately daily. Just as too little movement is not good for our health, neither is too much exercise at high intensity.

3: Reduce stress. This is our responsibility to manage. Set boundaries and get better at time management.

4: Quit / reduce alcohol. All alcohol causes inflammation in the gut. The less you drink, the less inflammation.

5: Lose weight. Even being slightly overweight causes inflammation in the body – extra pressure on joints, overload on the digestive system, pressure on the cardiovascular system etc.

Losing weight will reduce inflammation in your body and can solve MANY medical issues!
