Why You Should Think About Inflammation

Everyone experiences inflammation, whether they are aware of it or not. The immune system creates inflammation to protect the body against infection, injury, and disease. Without inflammation, your body won’t heal. But why is there so much talk about inflammation? Most of us are busy in our daily lives and we all know that stressors like work, family, finances, and health are part of life. But what most people don’t know is that these types of stressors can trigger a cascade of changes in your body called Inflammation that can lead to major health issues like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and early death. Your doctor may not be focused on inflammation as part of your regular care and if you’re worried you may be fighting inflammation, here’s what you need to know.

What is Inflammation?

Inflammation can be Acute or Chronic. Acute inflammation happens when you hurt yourself or are sick. This type of inflammation doesn’t last very long, less than six weeks on average and can be attributed to an accident, injury, or illness. The symptoms can be severe, but short and once our body heals, we don’t think about it much. But inflammation that is chronic can be far less noticeable and can silently damage your cells, your health and even your life.

Inflammation is not always a sign of healing. Most chronic inflammation lasts for months or years and can even happen when you’re feeling well. Chronic inflammation has been linked to extended periods of stress and autoimmune disorder and doctors may not tell you, inflammation damages your cells, and it puts you at risk for major health issues like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. You can have low-grade inflammation that continues for years undetected, and inflammation can affect anyone.

Low-grade inflammation keeps your body from functioning at peak levels and doctors now recognize it as a major cause of illness. Inflammation can affect anyone, and it puts your well-being in danger.

How inflammation can make you fat

Chronic inflammation blocks your brain’s response to Leptin, the hormone that lets you know when your stomach is full, and when to stop eating. Inflammation blocks these important messages. Without Leptin’s signaling, many people will gain weight.

There’s no denying most of us have been under more stress than is normal in the past year or two and the persistent worry can trigger a cascade of stress hormones that cause your body to respond with physiological changes. Psychological responses to stress help us fight when we need to flee to safety, but the body can also overreact to stress, and the result can be deadly. Research proves that long-term exposure to repeated stress activates your stress response, and the result can be inflammation that damages your cells. Chronic stress can cause high blood pressure, anxiety, and depression at its effect on the heart can be devastating.
