Many conditions are characterized by inflammation – and, in many situations, inflammation serves a vital role. When caused by an injury, for instance, inflammation signals the body forming a ‘protective barrier’ around the site of the injury, in order to ensure that it can heal properly without contracting an infection. It is, for this reason, a necessary part of a healthy immune response, and is not something that needs to be treated.
If, however, inflammation becomes chronic, then we can begin to experience some debilitating effects. Arthritis, diabetes, and certain mental health issues are characterized by chronic inflammation. In cases where no definitive cause is found, a long list of more general side effects can occur, such as chronic fatigue, interrupted sleep, digestive troubles, and pain.
