Inflammation and its long-term side effects are something I've been investigating  because of the issues that I've been experiencing with my shoulder joint stress and the bursitis in my elbow. According to Jonny Bowden, PhD and board-certified nutritionist, there is inflammation that hurts and the kind that can kill.

The pain I've been experiencing is considered 'acute'. This means it can be relieved with an anti-inflammatory drug. 'Chronic' inflammation is not associated with a pain so its harder to recognize but can be deadly. It seems to play a part in every major degenerative disease such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimers. It causes damage to arteries which is why it is associated with heart disease.

Inflammation is also associated with obesity. The fat cells marked in conjunction with obesity release "inflammation cytokines". That causes inflammation around organs in obese patients. This causes additional stress on those organs.  Try moving your eating plan to a clean eating plan (details can be seen on the author page of my profile).

Consult your physician to discuss remedies for your type of inflammation. If inflammation is caused by over-use, rest that joint where possible.

Reduce stress and search out meditation techniques to try and manage stress, which can create inflammation.

Tip of the day:  Don't eat in front of the television.  It leads to 'mindless' eating, and you may end up consuming more calories because you didn't hear the signals that you were full from your stomach. Try and create a leisurely atmosphere when you eat ( especially dinner).  Enjoy the smells, texture and presentation of your food.
