Chronic inflammation can lead to a host of diseases. The good news is that there are different things you can do every day to naturally reduce chronic inflammation and improve your overall health.
Doctors and therapists often recommend the use of heat or cold packs to decrease pain, reduce inflammation, and to increase mobility. These methods for soothing achy and stiff joints are referred to as “thermotherapy.”
Inflammation is our body’s first line of defense in repairing injury or infection and against anything toxic, but that same protection can become problematic if it is too regularly called upon to “guard” us against perceived attack. Chronic inflammation is a high stress state of response in the body that has been associated with a host of diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, mental health issues, arthritis and more, and reducing that stress is an emerging field of research and focus in the medical community.
