Cellular Inflammation - The Cause of All Disease
Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury or infection. When left unaddressed, excessive or prolonged inflammation can lead to damage and chronic diseases. Autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto’s, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, ulcerative colitis, are all caused by inflammation at the cellular level.
Fortunately, there are several natural ways to reduce and eliminate cellular inflammation which is the path to complete healing and optimization of health and longevity.
Types of Infections That Cause Inflammation
Lyme and Lyme co-infections
Overgrowth of candida, fungal, bacteria, viruses
These infections and toxins cause inflammation at the cellular level, and can be anywhere in the body. They can even burrow themselves deep within the tissues of any organ, including the brain.
If you have a disease or symptoms, it means that toxins and interferences have bio accumulated over time from birth until today. And unfortunately in our modern toxic world of over 90,000 toxins since WW2, our bodies are unable to keep up their normal amazing detox ability anymore. So these toxins stay locked in and trapped in the body until they are identified and proactively removed.
This is why I see so many people younger and younger today getting autoimmune diseases, infertility, and on many many medications so early on in life.
There is a process to learn in order to have your body heal itself naturally, and then learn how to do maintenance, and optimization to have prevention and longevity for life.
Here are 9 Things to Resolve Inflammation that you can implement now:
#1 - Eat an Anti-Inflammatory Diet
An anti-inflammatory diet is rich in organic fruits, vegetables, fatty fish, grass fed beef, pasture raised chicken and healthy fats such as butter, ghee, tallow, coconut oil, olive oil, and avocados.
#2 - Detox Properly
Identify exactly what are the toxins and interferences that have bio accumulated in your unique body. Then, target them and clear them out. Many people try to do this prematurely, and before they open up their drainage pathways. This is dangerous, and can result in re-toxification of the body.
We have 50-70 trillion cells, and the goal is to ensure that they are all healthy. Cells replicate, and if yours are unhealthy, they are each producing more unhealthy cells. Healthy cells also replicate and it is possible to replace unhealthy cells with healthy ones.
#3- Get Restorative Sleep
Sleep deprivation can increase inflammation in the body, making it more difficult to heal from injuries and illnesses. Adults need between 7-9 hours of restorative sleep per night to give your body the rest it needs to repair and regenerate.
#4 - Manage Stress
Stress causes our own bodies to generate toxins internally, which triggers inflammation and disease. It's important to find ways to manage stress in your daily life. Do SELF care, to keep your stress levels low, like getting a massage, take a warm bath, read a book, go outside, be in nature, listen to peaceful music, practice yoga or meditation, go for a walk in nature. Engage in activities that you enjoy. Have social interaction with friends, family, and love your pets.
#5 - Stay Hydrated
Drinking enough high quality toxic free water can help flush out toxins and reduce inflammation in the body. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water per day. Also, consume daily electrolytes to drive the water inside the cells for true hydration. Such as 1 tsp sea salt, 2x/day or LMNT packs.
#6 - Exercise Regularly
Regular physical activity can help reduce inflammation, boost immune function, and promote overall health. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per day, such as brisk walking, cycling, or swimming. Incorporate resistance training each week as well.
#7 - Create a Toxic Free Environment
What? Is that possible? We can minimize and eliminate what we can control, and we actually have a lot of control over many areas of our environment.
Improve your air quality and eliminate mold exposure. It is important to use a high quality air purifier, especially in rooms in which you spend the most time. And, if you suspect mold in your environment, ensure that you use the right professional to remediate.
Use only non-toxic household and personal care products. Clean your environment often and only use non-toxic household cleaning products. Check and replace any commercial personal care products with non-toxic options.
#8 - Clear Infections from the Collar Bone Up
So many diseases are hidden in the lymph, sinus, ears, eyes, and mouth that then leak systemically through your body. This shows up as symptoms or disease somewhere else. Trace infection from the collar bone up and then clear out all traces of it.
#9 - Shift Your Mindset
Keep your mind shifted to focusing on creating a life you love. Shift away from focusing on fixing yourself and problem-oriented thinking. You are not broken. You're perfect the way you are, and have the ability to use your superconscious to create what you want.
