Inflammation. What a pain.

Inflammation. What a pain.

One of the main functions of our body’s immune system is to produce inflammation as a way of protecting an area that has been compromised.  This acute inflammatory process helps remove harmful invaders from our system to prevent infections and aides in the healing process. In this way, inflammation is like stress; it can be beneficial in small doses at appropriate times but when it gets out of control it is damaging.
