Most people believe that inflammation is the cause of many of their ailments. But, is all inflammation bad, or do we need some inflammation for healing? How much is too much or too little? In this video, I'm going to answer those questions and so much more...
One thing to keep in mind is how certain foods can cause inflammation in the body. This is especially important when it comes to healing from injuries. If we are eating inflammatory foods while trying to recover, we may be prolonging the whole process.
Inflammation can also affect our minds. Some people even experience brain fog which makes it hard to think clearly and make decisions.
Sometimes we need a little inflammation to help us heal. In physical therapy, I have used several techniques that cause a low-grade inflammatory response in order to remodel injured tissue.
The main thing to remember is that most people are exposing themselves to foods, relationships, the environment and other substances that cause an excess inflammatory response which can make it hard to reach optimal health and heal from injuries.
