What is Inflammation?
We hear so often about inflammation. There is even a drug commerical which states that it will “block the source of inflammation”. Makes one wonder what causes the inflammation and why isn’t that being targetsd?
Let’s first find out what inflammation is
Why is it necessary and how to combat chronic inflammation
Inflammation refers to your body’s response when fighting against things that can harm it, such as infections, injuries, and toxins. The response is in order to protect the body so it can repair injuries and to fight invaders, such as bacteria and viruses
You can think of inflammation as the body’s natural response to protect itself against harm. It’s a big part of how our body recovers after facing disease or injury.
This response includes the release of antibodies and proteins, as well as increased blood flow to the damaged area. The whole process usually lasts for a few hours or days in the case of acute inflammation.
There are two types: acute and chronic

What is the difference between structural medicine and functional medicine? Structural medicine is similar to parking an ambulance at the bottom a of a cliff because people are falling off. instead of building a fence on the cliff so people don’t fall off.

I’ve heard people say this. It really doesn’t seem to be a thought out comment but one which “everybody knows”. I will sometimes hear it when I recommend natural medicine or remedy.
My question will be – Why would you take a petrochemical pharmaceutical instead of natural medicine? The answer – Because drugs save lives?
Well, when a person has neglected their health to the point where they are about to succumb to a bad infection due to a compromised immune system or succumb to heart disease, or any other ailment, it will save their life – well it will extend their life. But, that is the point at which you need to start building health. And actually building health is a good idea to do before you need to have your life saved by taking drugs.
But my question is why you would take a drug when there are so many alternatives that are safe and work just as well. Why are people so afraid for their health that they would get a “flu shot” or take a “mold” based product (better known as penicillin)? What is the matter with their immune system? Yes, the flu can be very detrimental to someone with a compromised immune system. But what happened that their immune system became compromised.
The missing step is maintaining health, and building health if it is compromised.
I haven’t known many medical doctors who will give you any advice on being healthy other than to tell you to exercise and to eat a healthy diet. A medical doctor works to help you maintain your disease once you have one, so it doesn’t get any worse. They are not in the business of building health.
So, maybe the right approach is building health and not eating what has been referred to as S.A.D. – the Standard American Diet.
Find out what your body needs to be healthy and make sure that you get all the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the foods that you eat. Or supplement if you can not get enough. Eat for your health, not for your taste buds.

I’ve been talking to people about their neuropathy for 13 years. I recently offered a quiz to help people to know what can make the neuropathy worse, or what will slow down building healthy nerves when taking supplements. (Here is the quiz, if you are interested – Quiz
One thing that I get often is that the cause of their neuropathy (nerve damage) is unknown. Not only does that bother me as they could be doing something everyday that creates more nerve damage, but I don’t understand why the cause can’t be found.
So, on that note, here is an article where all the causes of nerve damage is listed.
