Do you know what cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, Crohn’s disease, asthma, and diabetes all have in common? Scientists have linked all of these to the presence of chronic inflammation in the body!
Inflammation is part of the body’s natural immune response. It's a way for the body to protect itself from harm and begin the healing process. Acute inflammation starts rapidly, is severe, and lasts from several days to a few weeks. A few examples are bronchitis, sore throat, or a sprained ankle. On the other hand, chronic inflammation is long term and can cause numerous diseases and conditions that can span a lifetime.
Stress and dysfunction at a cellular level can cause the immune system to become chronically activated. This can be triggered by many things including elevated blood sugar, stress, poor nutrition, hormone imbalances, and environmental toxins. The biggest danger of chronic inflammation is that it has a silent nature and can be undetectable in the body for many years.
A blood test – CRP (C-reactive protein) can determine that there is inflammation present in the body. That’s important information but we need to know where the inflammation is located. That’s one area where Thermography is the ideal assessment tool.
Thermography, a test of physiological changes in the body, shows the general areas where inflammatory changes are taking place. By using this information to make lifestyle changes, Thermography can play an enormous part in improving quality of life.
Find inflammation before it starts to effect your health! As Benjamin Franklin wrote: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
