Let’s face it, we live in a very stressful time. Our lives are busy and there never seems to be enough time in the day to fit everything in that needs to be done. Our hectic schedules often increase our stress levels. While some stress is good for you, too much stress can lead to serious and life threatening medical conditions.
Inflammation is a part of life. While acute inflammatory conditions protect the body, chronically inflamed tissues will become harmful over time. Swelling of tissues is the body's natural way to defend itself from internal or external trauma. Acute or primary inflammation naturally protects the body from illnesses or injury. Chronic inflammation, however, can lead to illness and disease if not treated.
