What is inflammation
Inflammation is a process by which the body’s white blood cells protects us from infection caused by foreign organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. It’s the body’s defensive reaction to injury or irritation. This is often characterised by redness, swelling, heat, and pain.
Chronic inflammation, in response to poor diet, stress or pollution, can wreak havoc in our body. Inflammation can show up as bloating or digestive troubles. Many major diseases that plague us including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer’s have been linked to chronic inflammation.
