The media seem to be full of talk of inflammatory disease these days, but still many people are none the wiser. This is not some new type of disease, inflammatory disease has been with us since the beginning of our evolution.
As a matter of fact, inflammatory disease is not a very accurate description. Inflammatory diseases would be a much better term to use as this is a range of diseases. However, the concept behind the majority of inflammatory diseases is the same, and most of our illnesses are caused by inflammation.
What is Inflammatory Disease?
We actually need inflammation. That may sound crazy but inflammation is an important part of the physiology of our bodies. Most of the time the body can fight of inflammation by itself, and does not need us interfering, but on occasion it might need some help to fight of inflammation.
