Waking Up to an Invisible Epidemic

As human beings, we have been unaware of one of the greatest epidemics of the twenty-first century. This modern plague is caused by complex yet subtle responses in the body. In medical terms, this definitive two-edged sword is inflammation

Inflammation is both good and bad for our bodies. On the plus aspect, our body can’t heal and mend without inflammation. Body injuries or ailments need inflammation as those areas are flooded with additional blood and immune cells – the natural healing signs are redness, puffiness, and on occasion, the sensation of warmth or burning.

Inflammation’s negative side presents itself when it tips the balance against healing – when the suffering individual dies of extreme burns or out-of-control fever.

This good and bad side of inflammation has been recognized since the beginning of medicine. However, most medical practitioners have been focused on acute inflammation, the more severe kind triggered by bodily wounds and diseases.

The epidemic alluded to by a growing collection of medical professionals and practitioners is of a different kind. It involves the often overlooked condition of low-grade chronic inflammation that has a potentially massive impact on the body’s health and well-being.

Chronic Inflammation is Dangerous

It is now acknowledged that what makes this seemingly harmless chronic inflammation so dangerous is a matter of time. Modern society’s lifestyle disorders like hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and most probably many cancers take a very long time to show their ill effects.

These kinds of health issues take years before any symptoms appear.
The same can also be said for Alzheimer’s. This recent discovery pushes back the onset of most illnesses that detection is can be troublesome and difficult without the help of sensitive new devices.

The latest research on different kinds of disorders shows a consistent trend. Regardless of how any disease differs, they have a single common factor — markers for inflammation.

This new discovery was startling and groundbreaking when you consider that hypertension looks nothing like Alzheimer’s nor diabetes, like cancer. Still, in looking at the microscopic functions of a healthy cell, the most important, and often the only link; points to the chemicals that trigger inflammation.

Based on facts, a majority of all deaths in the United States can be attributed to inflammation. It likely makes it the most deadly condition in the advanced world. It puts in danger billions of lives in both developed and developing countries.

 The mass media have begun to recognize the ill effects of inflammation and bring awareness to the public. For instance, you can now see and read about a lot of information on topics such as anti-inflammatory diets.

However, a couple of hurdles are in place, originating from the fact that

a) Inflammation is holistic, encompassing all aspects of the body, and

b) Solutions to overcome chronic inflammation are a continuing life-long
commitment.

The second consideration is underlined by the fact that most anti-inflammation therapy a person initiates most often than not, won’t show any observable benefits. An invisible plague would need practically an invisible cure.

It is a Serious Epidemic

What tools would you use against a disease that has been referred to as the “smoldering inflammation?”

This epidemic potentially involves the whole body, including the endocrine system’s organs and tissues, cardiovascular system, brain, and immune system.

The new paradigm is all about the whole body-mind, with the intent of making each day a healing experience.

Serious medical problems such as impaired organ function, cellular death, aging, and recovering from serious injury or illness may arise from chronic inflammation.

But generally, habits and a lifestyle that allows the whole body to naturally flourish is the solution. A prospering homeostatic system is supported by the following:

-A balanced way of life without extreme changes
-Restful sleep
-A diet of healthy, whole foods
-Paying attention to everyday activity, including walking and standing
-Stress reduction
-Minimal (or absence) of anxiety, depression, and emotional upset
-Strong support from family, friends, and community
-Feeling loved and wanted
-A peaceful and calm mind
-Proper hydration
-Anti-inflammatory diet

The factors above are all practical lifestyle practices. These are not new nor groundbreaking. The revelation that we now have a veritable plague flourishing in our human society makes our choices urgent and precedent.
