There's no need to live with Chronic Inflammation and Pain

There's no need to live with Chronic Inflammation and Pain | Mr Vitamins
Inflammation is a natural immune response that serves as a self protection mechanism. Acute inflammation is healthy and necessary for our survival. The problem begins when this process goes unchecked for too long as this is when tissue damage may occur. Pain is one of the symptoms you may be experiencing as a result. Living with chronic pain can be very debilitating. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many natural ways to address the underlying inflammation and improve the quality of your life.

What does gut bacteria have to do with inflammation

Recent scientific research is proving that gut bacteria (microbiome) play a huge role in many functions of the body including controlling inflammation. Gut bacteria communicate with your immune system, which is involved in regulating inflammatory responses. A new science is also showing that pathogenic (bad) bacteria can change how you perceive pain. The more “bad” bacteria you have in your gut the more sensitive you may be to pain.

Chinese and Western herbs that help to reduce pain and inflammation

In traditional Chinese medicine herbs such as Turmeric, Gingerand Boswelliahave been used for thousands of years to help invigorate the Blood and Qi(vital energy) to ease pain due to stagnation. Scientific evidence on the therapeutic use of Turmeric extract has grown significantly in the last few years. The extract of this herb otherwise known as Curcuminmay be used for chronic inflammatory conditions and pain.
