Low-grade, chronic inflammation is systemic and can last for months or years. It is linked with a host of medical conditions and diseases including: a variety of autoimmune diseases, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, asthma, autism, cancer, celiac, colitis, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, neuropathy, psoriasis, under- or over-reactive Thyroid, and so on. This is partly due to an excessive production of free radicals that can be damaging to cells in the brain and the body. This points out the importance of preventing chronic inflammation whenever possible. There are multiple contributions to chronic inflammation including:  inadequate amounts of sleep, chronic stress, reoccurring or chronic infections, what you eat and drink, blood sugar imbalances, leaky gut syndrome, and excessive alcohol intake, etc. More tomorrow.
