Inflammation 101

Inflammation isn't necessarily a bad thing. Its primary purpose is to help protect injuries so they can heal faster without reinjury. It's also an essential part of your body's inflammatory system as well.

However, when inflammation gets out of hand and becomes chronic, it can lead to inflammatory diseases and other disorders. Keeping inflammation in check is one of the best ways to enhance your overall well-being, since it can negatively impact every aspect of your health.

Chances are, you're probably experiencing low-grade inflammation right now. This type of inflammation is very common, and can inhibit the function of your cells, organs, and more. It can be caused by poor diet, lack of sleep, anxiety, and oxidative stress.

This is why it's a good idea to build habits that are centered on lessening inflammation.

 
 
4 Ways Inflammation Hurts Your Health
Interrupted Gut Biome
Overproduction of inflammation can hurt your gut, contributing to diseases like Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). This inflammation can be caused by genetics, diet, pharmaceuticals, and oxidative inflammation.
Cardiovascular Disease
Chronic inflammation is a major contributor to heart disease. In some cases, those who don't have elevated cholesterol, but had elevated inflammatory markers, were found to be at risk of developing heart disease.
Insulin Resistance
Inflammation may contribute to insulin resistance, make it more difficult to lose weight, and can be a risk factor for diabetes. Insulin resistance can also lead to increased inflammation, causing a vicious cycle.
Brain Fog
Oxidative stress-induced inflammation can also impact the cells in your brain. As your cells' mitochondria struggle with the effects of free radical damage, energy production can suffer, leading to brain fog.
 
WHAT ARE YOUR NEXT STEPS FOR RELIEVING INFLAMMATION?

AT WELL THEORY, OUR GOAL IS TO HELP YOU CURATE A LIFE LIVED WELL – IN A LASTING, HOLISTIC WAY.

1. PRIORITIZE HEALTHY SLEEP HABITS
As you rest, your body produces antioxidants and filters out inflammatory toxins. Getting the right amount of sleep every day allows your body to perform these essential tasks and reduce low-grade inflammation.
2. IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH
Recent studies have linked high levels of inflammation with mental disorders such as anxiety and depression. Inflammation is a type of biochemical stress that can impact your mental health.
3. EAT ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOODS
We all know that excess sugars, fats, and simple carbohydrates aren't good for us. But instead of focusing on what you can remove from your diet, think about what you can add to make it more healthy - like antioxidant fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and more. The Mediterranean Diet is a great place to start!
4. EXERCISE & RECOVER
Exercise is great for reducing inflammation - but recovery is just as important. Make sure to get plenty of rest, and eat a well-rounded diet that gives your body the nutrients it needs to fully repair itself after activity.
5. Consider Supplementation.
When choosing anti-inflammatory supplements, keep in mind that inflammation can reach every part of your body. NSAIDs only soothe surface inflammation temporarily. To address chronic inflammation, look for supplements that fill gaps in an otherwise healthy diet, or are rich in antioxidants.
