But why is it so dangerous, after all?
Most people think inflammation is only sore knees, a stiff back, or tightness in the body.
While these are all indicators of inflammation, they are not as alarming as another more serious form of inflammation.
Acute inflammation is your body’s first response to fight off toxins, infections, and injuries. This form of inflammation is healthy and necessary. 👍🏼💯
Chronic inflammation occurs when your body can’t control inflammation and it lingers around for too long. This unhealthy inflammation level becomes alarming to overall health. 👎🏼🚨
That's because it mistakes the healthy cells for sick ones and starts attacking them.
And this is what’s going on for many people who are suffering from joint pain.
The body attacks the cartilage that protects joints from friction and causes inflammation.
This is what we call Rheumatoid Arthritis, an autoimmune disorder for inflamed joints.
This inflammation is not a sign of protection, but rather of harm to joint linings.
Unfortunately, it is also difficult to manage as there are so many things that can trigger flare-ups.
Anything from bad diet, work, health and family issues can all worsen arthritic joint inflammation.
