It’s about herbs. It’s about health. It’s about life.
Perhaps you can’t see it or feel it, but inflammation could be slowly damaging your body without you even knowing.
Inflammation, also known as swelling, is the body’s natural way of healing itself by fighting infection and injury...
BUT an inflammatory response can even occur within your body when the immune system kicks into action without an infection or injury to fight.
Since there is nothing there that actually needs to heal, the immune system’s cells do the opposite of what they are supposed to, and they begin destroying healthy organs, arteries, and joints.
Why would inflammation happen without an infection or injury?
Dr. V. Pitis, MD, who is an internal medicine physician, says,
“When you don’t eat healthy, don’t get enough exercise, or have too much stress, the body responds by triggering inflammation. Chronic inflammation can have damaging consequences over the long term. So, the food you eat, the quality of sleep you get and how much you exercise, they all really matter when it comes to reducing inflammation.”
The very early symptoms of chronic inflammation are often very vague.
The subtle signs and symptoms can often go undetected for a long time. Sometimes you may just feel very slightly fatigued.
But as it progresses, it will often damage organs, arteries, and joints. And in fact, chronic inflammation can contribute to many familiar chronic diseases including blood vessel disease, heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and other serious conditions.
You can often reverse or control inflammation by taking on a healthy, anti-inflammatory lifestyle and diet.
Certain fruits, vegetables, movement, and good sleep are all important for reducing inflammation. One of the best ways to keep inflammation at bay is, of course, the natural ways of healing like spices, oils, and herbal tea.
Inflammation and oxidation are the most common drivers of physical and mental declines of our bodies.
Wild herbal tea is rich in flavonoids and antioxidants can combat both.
