What is inflammation?

Inflammation is a process that is activated by the body's immune system to protect itself and promote healing. Inflammation can be acute or chronic, and can involve redness, swelling, heat, pain, and changes in function of the affected area.

Acute inflammation is a normal and healthy response to injury or infection. It is usually short-lived and resolved once the underlying cause has been addressed. Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, is a prolonged state of inflammation that persists for a long time and can lead to the development of various diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune disorders.

Managing inflammation is an important aspect of maintaining good health and preventing the development of certain diseases. This can be achieved through lifestyle changes, such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, stress management, and avoiding exposure to environmental toxins. In some cases, medication may also be prescribed to manage inflammation.
