Is Inflammation A Friend or Foe?
Inflammation is a natural part of your body’s defense system.
Inflammation occurs when white blood cells are activated for a specific purpose, but problems arise when the process does not turn off. For example, when the immune system is chronically on high alert. It’s a problem of persistent immune activation, which can be the result of many factors from environmental toxins to high stress to genetic predisposition.
There is more than one type of chronic inflammation. The kind of inflammation that is associated with one disease may be different from another. Leaders in science are only at the beginning of learning how to resolve inflammation through nutrition, nutrigenomics, and personalized lifestyle medicine.
Chronic inflammation is at the root cause of many chronic diseases that we are familiar with, such as: heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes. It may also be the reason you are struggling to lose weight due to the effect of chronic inflammation on the thyroid, or further upstream by inflammation's effect on the hypothalamus.
Hypothalamus is the master controller of the brain. Your hypothalamus makes many essential hormones and orchestrates behavior as a result of environmental and body cues, so that means it governs body weight set point and hunger, as well as other tasks such as sleep, body temperature, and sex drive.
