Inflammation is the bodies innate immune response to some form of stress.

There are two types of inflammation: Acute & Chronic

Acute inflammation is immediate like when you scrape your knee and it get red and inflamed which is the good kind of inflammation

Chronic inflammation occurs over time and can manifest itself in many ways both external and internally.  It could be caused by toxins, bacteria, viruses, sugar, highly processed foods, etc.& this is the bad inflammation.

If chronic inflammation is left on its own, it could produce negative conditions that you don’t want.

Good news is that you can apply healthy food & lifestyle approaches which can help mitigate chronic inflammation.
