New Study Shows 5 Causes of Inflammation
American Fork, Utah, United States, August 3 2020 (Wiredrelease) Tork Media LLC –: You may be able to notice inflammation that occurs on the outside of your body, but did you know that you could also be experiencing inflammation inside your body as well? It’s true, inflammation is a common bodily response that can be caused by a variety of different issues. Sometimes you might not even realize what’s going on since you can’t see it, but by learning about the causes and the signs of inflammation, you can take steps to address it and improve your overall quality of life. So here’s everything you need to know about inflammation and what you can do about it:
What Is Inflammation
Inflammation is a natural bodily response to perceived danger or damage. When your body detects a potential issue, it sends white blood cells to the area to help protect it from danger which can create redness and swelling. While inflammation might seem like a bad thing, in most cases, it means that the body is doing its job and is working properly. If you are experiencing things like joint pain, joint stiffness, fever, chills, fatigue, and headaches then these could actually be signs of inflammation.
There are two main types of inflammation: acute and chronic. Acute is temporary and only lasts for a few days. It can be a result of an injury, an infection, or exposure to an inflammatory substance that triggers that response. Acute inflammation usually involves symptoms like pain, redness, swelling, heat, and loss of function. Here are some common causes of acute inflammation:
Physical trauma or wound. For example, you would expect to experience some acute inflammation after the surgical removal of your wisdom teeth because your body sees that as a physical trauma and triggers an inflammatory response by sending white blood cells. Your chipmunk cheeks are a telltale sign of this. A viral illness like the cold or the flu. When your body detects foreign pathogen cells, it triggers your immune response and also inflammation to help fight them off. This can cause things like a fever, a sore throat, chills, and body aches.
Chronic inflammation is the other type of inflammation that lasts for a long time. Sometimes this can be caused by the body perceiving itself as a threat and triggering unnecessary inflammatory responses. This can be a big problem for the body and your overall health. Here are some common causes of chronic inflammation:
Sensitivity to certain substances that consistently triggers an inflammatory allergic response. Autoimmune disorders that cause the body to attack itself, including things like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Chron’s disease, and ulcerative colitis. Autoinflammatory diseases that are caused by a genetic dysfunction in the immune system, including things like Behcet’s disease.
How to Reduce Inflammation
While some inflammation is totally normal and might even be a good sign, it still could require treatment. Your typical treatment for inflammation can range from something as simple as NSAIDs like ibuprofen all the way to intense antirheumatic drugs like methotrexate that are used to treat cancer. However, another way to reduce inflammation is to take supplements or other more natural remedies. For example, the best anti-inflammatory pills might include things like CBD and turmeric to reduce inflammation and pain while increasing mobility and range of motion. This is a great option for those looking for a safe and natural solution to their inflammatory pain.
The cause of your inflammation is the most important thing to understand before you seek treatment. For acute inflammation, anti-inflammatory pills might be a great option. For chronic inflammation caused by chronic diseases, you might need additional treatments but there are still more natural ways to treat the pain and discomfort caused by your body’s inflammatory response.
