Fight Chronic Inflammation With Chiropractic Support

By Sandy Schroeder

If you cut your finger and it turns red and puffs up, you know what inflammation is. If you treat the cut promptly, it should respond and heal, but chronic inflammation is something else.

Chronic inflammation does not soar in and then disappear. Instead, it hangs around trying to deliver toxic blows with serious issues such as diabetes, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, bowel disease, cancer or a stroke. When inflammation is left unchecked, it can trigger illness that could be prevented.

Harvard Health says we should know how to spot chronic inflammation and fight back with regular checkups, a healthy diet and daily exercise.

How to Spot Chronic Inflammation

Look for these common signs and symptoms and discuss them with your doctor.

  • Weight gain
  • Body pain
  • Ongoing tiredness
  • Anxiety, sadness, depression
  • Frequent infections

Fight Back With a Healthy Diet and Exercise

Avoid heavy saturated fats, refined sugars and processed foods. Skip the burgers, fries and pepperoni pizza. Instead, consider a Mediterranean diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, potatoes, whole grains, seafood and extra virgin olive oil.  Only eat sweets and red meat occasionally, and eat moderate amounts of eggs, yogurt, cheese and poultry.

A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may ease aches and pain, and generate an improved sense of wellness. Individuals report better sleep, more relaxation, a sharper mental focus, improved digestion and better metabolism.
