Natural approaches to whole body inflammation
Inflammation occurs as a reaction to injury or infection. It is accompanied by pain, redness, swelling, and sometimes loss of function. It was, in fact, is part of our natural protection from invasion of microorganisms. When inflammation of the white blood cells flock to the area to destroy harmful microorganisms and dead cells, thus preventing the spread of irritation and allowing the tissue to recover on their own.
But sometimes inflammation can lead to serious consequences, and that’s the problem. Chronic indolent inflammation plays a major role in many diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease and osteoporosis.
Inserting knee, you can easily see and feel the inflammatory response. But the chronic smoldering inflammation, known as “asymptomatic inflammation”, takes place more hidden. To determine the extent of the problem, doctors measure the levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) in the blood. For this reason, I recommend adding a CRP test to your yearly test physical condition. It is, in fact, a stronger indicator or a prognostic factor of heart attack than cholesterol
Diet plays a role in triggering the inflammatory response. Studies have shown that levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), usually higher in people with a high sugar content in the diet. Conversely, a diet rich in fiber, and low in refined carbohydrates is associated with lower levels of CRP.
In General, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables are the most useful. It is also important to avoid refined or simple sugars, which increase the glycemic load associated with an inflammatory response.
Put Out The Fire Additives
Vitamins C and E, zinc, selenium, and extracts, rich in flavonoids, such as extracts from grape seed or pine bark (Pycnogenol) are the most important antioxidants in the fight against inflammation. Products supplements of fish oil providing a daily combined dosage of 3 grams of fatty acids EPA+DHA have also been proven effective in reducing inflammation and getting positive changes in numerous studies.
Preparations of proteolytic enzymes, including chymotrypsin, trypsin, bromelain, papain, fungal proteases and serratiopeptidase proved useful in a wide range of inflammatory conditions. Look for products containing the combination, and follow the instructions on the label. You can also find serratiopeptidase as a standalone product to relieve inflammation.
Microlactin, a special milk protein, is gradually gaining recognition as a natural treatment of inflammation of the joints. During inflammatory reactions, the “connection” between the cells lining the articular slits are increased, which allows leukocytes to enter the joint. Once inside these cells cause even more inflammation and ultimately more damage to the joints. Tightening these cellular connections, Microlactin prevents the migration of white blood cells in the interarticular space. This mechanism of action is similar to the mechanism of action of drugs such as prednisone, but without side effects.
A holistic Approach to the Entire Body
Reducing inflammation of the whole body, especially in severe cases, requires a truly integrated approach. The examples above are just some of the possibilities. Consultation with a dietitian will help to develop an optimal treatment course.
Microlactin get through a unique process by which a small fraction of milk with a low molecular weight is subjected to over-concentration in such a way that it can be delivered anywhere in convenient dosages. Two clinical trials conducted independently from each other, confirmed that this drug is very effective in improving joint function in case of inflammation. In a double-blind study, Microlactin gave significantly better results in the treatment of joints compared to placebo than glucosamine. These results of treatment with Microlactin showed overall improvement in joint function in six weeks was 60 percent higher than in the treatment with glucosamine. The usual dose for Microlactin is 2 grams twice daily for the first 7-10 days and then assigned to maintenance dose of 2 grams once a day.
