‘When the body is finally listened to ……. It becomes eloquent.
It’s like changing a fiddle into a Stradivarius’
Is poorly managed pain and inflammation slowing you down and impairing your quality of life?
The feeling of pain is your body’s way of telling you that there is inflammation present.
Inflammation is associated with the classic symptoms of pain, redness, heat and swelling. It frequently accompanies injury and tissue trauma, such as sprains, strains, cuts, bites and
stings. However, what you may not realise, is that inflammation can be a contributing factor to many health conditions and is a key component in the joint pain of arthritis, back pain and
muscular aches, digestive disorders such inflammatory bowel disease, period pain, and many types of headaches.
The Firelighters Within
The term inflammation comes from the Latin word, ‘Inflammatio’ which means to set on fire. Inflammation is like a small biological fire designed to ‘burn away’ harmful stimuli
such as pathogens, allergens, injury or other irritants. It is a protective mechanism designed to remove these causative factors and initiate the healing response. Inflammation can also be the result of diet, lifestyle factors and stress which can ignite, and keep this fire burning.
Inflammation Inside and Out
Inflammation can be easily identified when there are external signs of pain from arthritis, or joint and muscle injuries. However, inflammation can be occurring inside the body even when the warning signs are less obvious. For example, did you realise that obesity is an inflammatory state? Many digestive disorders such as food intolerances, irritable bowel disease, and coeliac disease are inflammatory conditions.
Putting Out the Body’s Fire
For optimal health, it is important to dampen down the inflammatory response and put out this fire. Pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories are commonly used to help relieve pain and inflammation, however many of these carry risks such as causing damage to your digestive tract. Fortunately there are some safe and effective natural anti-inflammatory and pain relief solutions available.
Food Can Produce or Reduce Inflammation
The typical Western diet may actually promote inflammation; high amounts of sugar and refined carbohydrates break down quickly into glucose and have been shown to induce inflammatory changes that are linked with many chronic diseases. In some susceptible people, foods such as dairy products and gluten-containing grains can trigger an inflammatory response within the digestive tract and throughout the body.

YOU JUST HAVE TO START
You can start at anytime if you
want to be successful or make changes.
But you have to start.
You won’t accomplish anything
if you wait for all the possible
objections to be overcome.
Don’t wait for the perfect time.
Doing something new, is what people fear most.
Don’t wait for things to change.
For things to change, you have to change.
Don’t wait until you have more time,
until you are less tired, until you get the promotion,
until you settle down, until, until, until.
Don’t wait for a major event in your
life to occur before you begin.
Begin where you are.
When you take the first step,
the second one gets easier.
The only way to start down
the road to success is to start.
