When you are healthy, inflammation is actually the immune system's first reaction to infection or irritation. It is a good thing!
However, rash, chronic or systemic inflammation is a distinct kind of BAD soreness, the troubled side of what should be a healing process. thereafter, chronic inflammation ensues. This is how what should be a healthy defense system turns into an evil, potentially fatal destroyer, and why the treatment of inflammation is so significant.
Here is what happens in more detail Inflamed tissue is flooded with macrophages looking to get rid of the damaged cells from the hurt tissue. These cells are strong defenders for the body, but in an unhealthy, or more particularly, an unbalanced body, bad things can happen. Dr. William Meggs, in his book'The Inflammation Cure' explains it this way: 'Ideally, soreness should decline when the pathogens are snuffed out, or when the insult is removed and the body tissue heals. The chemical messengers stop ringing the redness alarm, and arteries and the lymphatic system carry the excess fluid, dead pathogens, damaged cells, and leaked blood cells away from the location of redness. Unfortunately, when the body becomes unbalanced, the system can overreact, or stop working, or turn against us, or simply continue fighting small battles each day so that soreness continues indefinitely.' This is why rash or protracted soreness is almost always accompanied by tissue destruction. Typically, inflammation is indicated by redness, distended joints that are warm to touch, joint agony, joint rigidity, or loss of joint function. However, soreness might also be associated with general'flu-like' symptoms. But, most apparently and doubtless most applicable to us, rash swelling can affect internal organs in the same way that it affects the other tissue in our body like the joints. Scientists have been working the treatment of inflammation and studying glutathione's role in prevention. The symptoms you may feel depends on which organs are affected. For example: Inflammation of the heart ( myocarditis ) may lead to shortness of breath or leg swelling. Inflammation of the little tubes that transport air to the lungs may cause an asthma attack. Soreness of the kidneys ( nephritis ) may lead to hypertension or kidney failure. So, the goal should be, not only the treatment of inflammation, but to stop it.
How? By keeping your body balanced. Everyone knows that vitamins and supplements are beneficial. Maybe you are one of them.
Understanding a little known, but increasingly mentioned, molecule produced naturally by our bodies is the key to a true discovery in fighting rash inflammation. This molecule is named glutathione or GSH. A chemical or substance our body produces by itself that has been called the'master antioxidant'. Understanding what glutathione is, how it works and how to increase the bodies ability to supply this life sustaining molecule has latterly transformed the standard of life for many .
