Nearly everyone in the medical community agrees that chronic systemic inflammation is the root cause of many, if not most serious illnesses. These include, but are not limited to:
Ironically, inflammation is nature’s way to repair your body’s damage. So as a normal metabolic response to certain conditions and a part of your natural healing process, it is a ‘Positive.’ For example, the local redness, heat, swelling and pain you’ve seen and experienced on your skin from time to time – acute inflammation is actually a ‘positive inflammatory response’ intended to deliver nourishment and immune activity to your injury site or infection.
So inflammation is a good thing, right? “Yes,” at least when you’re young and when you’re injured at any age. But when it persists or serves no purpose, it can prematurely age you, damage your body and cause a wide array of illnesses.
When this is the case, it is called chronic inflammation. It can be caused by any number of things, some within your control and some not – your genetic makeup, stress, lack of exercise, obesity and exposure to toxins (like secondhand tobacco smoke). Dietary choices play a big part too.
Chronic inflammation can last for decades, eating away at your health, well-being and longevity – even as you sleep; it can target specific areas such as your skin, sinuses, bladder, prostate (in men), gums and more. You might recognize these as diseases that end with “itis” such as arthritis. And all too often, chronic inflammation can become systemic, meaning your entire body becomes inflamed.
Lowering chronic inflammation is one of the most effective anti-aging and overall wellness strategies on the planet. As we age, our bodies slowly self-destruct, partially by turning the inflammation process against healthy tissue. All the diseases of old age are linked to chronic inflammation.
Therefore, your best line of defense is to simply reduce inflammation and lower your risk of all these diseases. By the time we reach 50, inflammation already causes more harm than good, and in many cases, it strikes earlier, compounding the negative effects.
How to test for Inflammation
Now that nearly every physician finally realizes the serious and deadly dangers of inflammation, the most popular way to test for it is a simple blood panel that measures your levels of C-Reactive Protein (CRP). However, the most comprehensive panel is offered by Life Extension and is surprisingly affordable if you’re a member.
So once you know you have it, how can you reduce your chronic inflammation? Fortunately, much of it is under your control. You can often cool your body’s inflammatory response and boost your overall wellness by taking one step at a time at your own pace, but you must begin somewhere!
At Age Reversal, Inc (ARI) we have invested an enormous amount of time and money in developing a proprietary artificial intelligence technology that has isolated the genes involved in inflammation. The next initiative we took was using AI to determine how to control these genes with networks of Chinese herbs. With any supplement support, there is still much you can do on your own to reduce your inflammation in conjunction with recommended nutritional supplements.
Please note that if you have moderate to severe inflammatory symptoms which you can’t control, we strongly recommend you consult with a qualified integrative medicine physician to help your unique situation.
Anti-inflammatory Diet Suggestions
First general rule is to center your diet around plenty of fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and wild seafood (if you eat meat). Include as much of the following as you can:
Eliminate as much of these foods and additives from your diet as possible:
Monica Reinagel is a noted nutritional researcher who created the IF (Inflammation Factor) Rating™ system. This may be the most sophisticated approach to date for predicting the inflammatory effects of foods. Before creating it, Monica spent years studying systemic inflammation, and compiled data from hundreds of different research studies.
She authored The Inflammation Free Diet Plan, which gives you simple guidelines to use her system for planning your diet. It includes IF Ratings for 1,500 common foods. We recommend Monica’s book. You can learn more by visiting InflammationFactor.com. Nutrition Data provides IF Ratings for most foods in its database.
The Ratings deliver estimates of each individual food's effect on inflammation.
Monica recommends a diet with a positive (anti-inflammatory) composite IF Rating.
How to your trigger your body’s natural anti-inflammatories
Exercise. Start slowly and build up to 20–30 minutes of activity, five times a week.
Have fun. Lowering stress is a key anti-inflammatory strategy
Rest. Get enough quality sleep every night.
More anti-inflammatory steps
Break your bad habits. That includes excess alcohol and caffeine and nicotine and marijuana.
Make your life “green.” That includes natural cleaning products and detergents, limited dry cleaning and air fresheners, high-quality water and air filters and houseplants.
Gently detox a couple of times a year.
Manage your pain. If possible, do it naturally through acupuncture, massage, bio-feedback, water therapy and other mind–body treatments.
Lose Weight. Obesity is a major contributor to inflammation
Natural Inflammation Supplements
Before considering taking an NSAID or other drugs with potentially dangerous side effects, why not consider safe natural alternatives?
Another inflammation management approach is supportive products that promote stem cells and other systemic factors that degrade stem cell niches.
