As you already know, inflammation is the root cause of many chronic illnesses, from arthritis to cancer. What you might not know is that majority of these illnesses start in your gut as an autoimmune reaction that develops into systematic inflammation.
Needless to say, keeping inflammation at bay is key to optimal health and preventing disease. But are there any drug-free ways to achieve this? According to Lee Holmes, an Australian nutritionist and author, there absolutely is!
Read on to better understand how good gut health is essential to preventing chronic illnesses and for Lee's supercharged anti-inflammatory toddy extracted for her latest book, Heal Your Gut.
The importance of your gut health in fighting chronic illness
As I've already mentioned, inflammation is the culprit of most chronic illnesses – most of which begin as an autoimmune reaction in your gut, which later turns into systematic inflammation.
When inflammation occurs, you’re conditioned into reaching for a quick-fix in the way of over-the-counter or prescribed drugs like ibuprofen or aspirin. The problem with this is that in the long-term, taking drugs comes with its own adverse side effects. In fact, they can create a host of health problems independently, including depression
, kidney damage, stroke and heart attack.
But not all inflammation is bad. Acute inflammation, which is your body’s protective, localised response to injury or infection, is actually beneficial. When you’re in a car accident or feel your glands swelling as you fight off the flu, the inflammation you experience is designed to help restore your tissue function and heal your body.
It’s when inflammation persists due to an autoimmune reaction, allergy or other health complication, that chronic inflammation arises and can cause severe long-term problems.
