| TRUTH ABOUT INFLAMMATION | Inflammation—you’ve probably heard this term thrown around, and, whether you were aware of it or not, you’ve most likely experienced some type of inflammation during your lifetime. At present, the word inflammation is used liberally in medical communities. If you are suffering from pain in certain areas, a medical professional may deem it inflammation. “There’s inflammation in there,” a doctor may remark after reviewing MRI results. Or, “you’re inflamed,” a practitioner may say when you share you have joint pain, a rash, or strange pains. Really inflammation is a “lazy term,” because inflammation is the result of a deeper issue, it is never the answer itself. While I support medical professionals observing and attempting to relieve inflammation, I want these experts and you and your loved ones to know that inflammation is not the cause of any issue. Nor is it an independent issue. There is something else going on if you have inflammation— it doesn’t operate alone. This mistaken belief needs to be rectified.
Inflammation is a sign that there is a greater problem taking place in the body. If an individual is complaining of back pain, knee problems, or gut issues, his or her doctor or practitioner may suggest that inflammation is to blame. And, while inflammation may be present, it is never the answer. It is simply an indication that something else in the body needs to be addressed. The mistake here is not the medical communities wanting to address and relieve the inflammation— although the methods suggested to find relief are not always helpful— the great mistake is regarding the inflammation itself as the answer to someone’s symptoms and conditions. I delve far more deeply into this topic in my third book, Thyroid Healing.
