According to best-selling author Jonny Bowden, PhD, The Causes of Chronic Inflammation are Everywhere... They're in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the powders we wash and clean with, the list goes on. And even a lack of sleep or excessive stress can prompt an inflammatory response that is difficult to turn off.
Is this Silent Killer Lurking Inside You?
We are all smart, health-conscious adults who want to live a long, healthy life. And we want the same for our family and friends.
So we try to eat the right foods and exercise a few times a week, even take vitamins and other nutritional supplements, all in an attempt to look and feel our best.
But did you realize there's a killer lurking throughout your body right now that is so powerful, so deadly that it can reduce all of your well-intentioned efforts to absolutely nothing?
It's linked to a wide variety of diseases, is a major cause of aging, and demands your attention.
In a cover story a few years ago, Time magazine referred to it as the "silent killer," because you usually don't know you've been attacked by it until it's too late and you are diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes or worse, even cancer.
Doctors may never find it, partially because they don't run the right medical tests to detect it, yet it could be operating "undercover" in your body right now.
It's Called Chronic Inflammation
Some inflammation in your body is necessary.
You know when you scrap your knee the affected area gets red and swollen, right? Well, that's inflammation working appropriately. It presents itself, just when you need it most, to help initiate the healing process and when its job is done, it retreats.
Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, doesn't retreat. Like the Energizer Bunny, it "just keeps going and going" and that's when serious health problems arise.
Chronic Inflammation Threatens Every System in Your Body...
Yes, chronic inflammation destroys tissues and severely compromises the health of your heart, brain, immune system, and more. In essence, it hinders your ability to maintain overall good health.
In addition, chronic inflammation is a root cause of unhealthy aging.
Its' part of the reason why some people wrinkle and others don't... why some people have age-related aches and pains and others don't... why some people age gracefully and others don't.
