INFLAMMATION AND CHRONIC DISEASE
Research has shown that unchecked inflammation in the body is associated with even the earliest stages of disease development. Inappropriate inflammation is the root cause of many common chronic diseases such as arthritis, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, and even multiple sclerosis.
Yet, the key to reducing the number of people suffering from a chronic disease is to address inflammation through diet and lifestyle changes. In a 2005 scientific publication, T. Edwards writes “we have enough information presently to make the necessary changes in our lifestyle to significantly affect the inflammatory process and potentially live longer, healthier lives, with fewer burdens to an overburdened and failing medical system”.
