Being Inflamed Is Good For Our Body
It's important to know why inflammation can be good for you. Normally, to reduce our bodily stress, most ask what can I take for inflammation in my body?
Chronic inflammation physiologically does significant damage to our brain when not kept in check. But there is a fine line between allowing the body to reduce inflammation naturally, and then not being able to reduce it at all so that it remains in a chronic state of constantly trying to fight the issues that have been created. So it's important to address inflammation.
Think of inflammation as your body's response to an assault on your body. Things like proteins, cytokines, and other “toxins” bombard our body from the inside or from the outside. Initially, the body responds accordingly and sends the initial round of “firefighters” to put out the fire caused by the invaders (toxins). This is actually a good thing and beneficial for our long term health. But what happens when the fire gets too large for those initial round of firefighters to handle? We can compare this as what happens if the inflammation that started as a wood-fire has now grown larger and become a gas or chemical fire?
Can't you see how the body could get overwhelmed? This constant or much bigger inflammation puts a significant burden on the cells, and more specifically the mitochondria to address the inflammation. Why are mitochondria mentioned? Mitochondria are important because all of the cells in our body become energized by them. In addition, our brain requires a lot of energy from the mitochondria cells. So by having chronic inflammation, our brain (and also our gut) become inflamed and worn out causing toxins to move unfettered into our central nervous system causing eventual neuro-inflammation, or inflammation of the brain.
The bottom line is figuring out is inflammation good or bad for us. When our body initially responds to toxicity, being inflamed is good for our body and for our health. But it is the constant barrage of toxins that ultimately does our body, brain, joints, and digestion a significant amount of damage that shortens our lifespan and decreases our mental capacity.
