      What is Inflammation?

      Inflammation is actually your body’s natural response to an invader as a defense mechanism.

      During an acute attack on your body, your immune system will send white blood cells to the injury site to begin the healing process or to fight off any infectious disease. This positive response protects your body and helps you heal faster. When the injury is healed, the inflammation process ends.

      However, there are times when inflammation lingers for too long, causing uncomfortable symptoms. This is known as chronic inflammation and is the root of many conditions.

      Our job at Water’s Edge Natural Medicine is to find what is causing your inflammation so we can help you regain your vitality and feel great again.

      What causes inflammation?

      If you are experiencing the constant fire throughout your body that chronic inflammation causes, there are a few reasons why your immune system may be under attack. This may be anything from lifestyle choices to an underlying autoimmune disorder. Additional factors that may contribute to chronic inflammation include:

      • Obesity
      • Smoking
      • Chronic stress
      • Alcohol
      • Common allergens
      • Long-term exposure to toxins or air pollution
      • Poor gut health

      At Water’s Edge Natural Medicine, we go above and beyond for our patients, ensuring they receive the answers they’ve been missing. To learn more about Chronic Inflammation, schedule an appointment with one of our naturopathic experts today.

      Signs and Symptoms of Inflammation

      If you are dealing with acute inflammation, you will see visible signs of the healing process, including redness, swelling, or heat at the injury site. Chronic inflammation, however, can manifest as many different symptoms that may be subtle at first, which is why it is often overlooked.

      If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms that last longer than normal, you may have chronic inflammation:

      • Weight gain or weight loss
      • Depression
      • Anxiety
      • Irritability
      • Body pain
      • Fatigue
      • Diarrhea
      • Constipation
      • Frequent infections

      It is vital to get your chronic inflammation under control so you do not experience more complicated health conditions in the future. Our team of experts will work with you to bring back the balance to your body.

      When left untreated, chronic inflammation may lead to:

      • Heart disease
      • Cancer
      • Obesity
      • Asthma
      • Peptic ulcers
      • Hepatitis
      • Lupus
      • Crohn's Disease
      • Fibromyalgia
