Inflammation is a process by which the body’s white blood cells and substances they produce protect us from infection with foreign organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. However, in some diseases, like arthritis, the body’s defense system — the immune system — triggers an inflammatory response when there are no foreign invaders to fight off. Inflammation is your body’s response to stress – whether from your diet, lifestyle or environment. The modern epidemic of chronic, low-grade inflammation destroys the balance in your body. When your body’s systems experience a constant inflammatory response, you become more susceptible to aging and disease. Examples include multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, Crohn’s disease, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
