Role of Inflammation

The inflammatory response of the human body is implicated in many diseases and disease progression. Despite its design to help eliminate disease. Inflammation is the body’s response to heal damaged cells, fight off infection, eliminate toxins and more. This mechanism is vital to our survival yet it is identified as the key factor in many chronic diseases. Errors in this process leads to the body mistaking healthy tissue as diseased, causing it to attack. Autoimmune conditions have a genetic link while others seem to be triggered by environmental factors such as toxins in food sources and the environment. In general, Inflammation is non-specific and can target the surrounding healthy tissue at the site of injury. The presence of prolonged inflammation in healthy tissue leads to fibrotic changes and aging of those otherwise healthy tissues.
