Ever wonder why a stubbed toe becomes red and swollen? That's inflammation at work—your body's frontline defense against injury or infection. It's your body's own amazing and complex biological response that initiates healing.
And inflammation isn't just about these visible reactions; it plays a more nuanced role in your health. At its best, inflammation helps repair damaged tissue and ward off invaders. It's a sign that your immune system is doing its job right.
That's right—not all inflammation is bad! It's actually crucial to your overall well-being. However, when it becomes chronic, that's a different story and another reason you want to stay on top of any nagging aches or pains.
Think of it this way. Chronic stress = chronic inflammation. When your body is constantly out of balance it can lead to chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation can lead to an overworked immune system—the list goes on.
