Find relief for your chronic inflammation with your Ries Chiropractic And Body Work
Have you known anyone suffering with pain from chronic inflammation? Inflammation can be chronic or acute. Acute inflammation is the body’s normal, good response to help heal a new injury. Chronic inflammation however, often indicates a problem and can itself lead to serious disease. Anti-inflammatory drugs will fix it, right?
Ask yourself, is inflammation caused by a lack of drugs in the body? Of course not. Anti-inflammatory drugs may cover pain, but they do not fix the cause. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are not without side effects. Long term use side effects include digestive troubles, stomach ulcer, gastrointestinal bleeding and anemia.
Quiz time. The acronym for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug is? Answer NSAIDS.
Common NSAIDS include aspirin and ibuprofen as they are over the counter. If NSAIDS make someone feel better, what makes them so bad? Let’s talk science. They work for blocking enzymes that make something called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins cause pain. The problem is prostaglandins are needed to protect the stomach from indigestion and ulcers.
Oh no, is there a natural way to reduce chronic inflammation and what does this have to do with chiropractic?
First, let’s play jeopardy. Found in your favorite desserts, this ingredients is highly inflammatory. It’s one of the many bad foods that cause inflammation. What is it?
Clue, it’s commonly mixed into hot beverages. What is: Sugar.
A rise in blood sugar caused by refined carbohydrates increases cytokines, an inflammatory messenger.
Are there foods that reduce inflammation? Yes. Good fats help. This include coconut oil organic raw is best, butter organic is best, sesame oil, cod liver oil, olive oil in moderation of course, as well as avocado in moderation.
What if instead of covering the pain with anti-inflammatory drugs, the cause of inflammation was removed. Smart idea. Where does inflammation come from? Inflammation is created by the immune system. Chronic inflammation indicates a probable immune system malfunction. The immune system is controlled by the nervous system. Nerves come from the spine. If the spine is misaligned, interference to the nerves occurs. The immune system becomes weak. It’s called a spinal subluxation.
Restoring full nervous and immune system function is achieved by having a chiropractor remove subluxations. Without subluxation, chronic inflammation has a chance to reduce naturally. Reduced inflammation eliminates the production of something called neuropeptides which can cause chronic inflammation. What if chronic inflammation is untreated? Diseases rooted in inflammation include lupus, fibromyalgia, congestive heart failure, alzheimer’s and kidney failure.
Do you have a fried or love one with symptoms of chronic inflammation? Ask your chiropractor for a copy of chronic inflammation information to pass along so your loved one can address the cause of the problem naturally and fight disease. You can help change someone’s life. What could feel better than that? Stepping into extreme longevity requires strategy, knowledge, spiritual research, emotional release work, inspired dedication and determination – David Wolfe.
