Inflammation Explained Simple. Once And For All.
What is inflammation?
Inflammation is a physical condition whereby, generally speaking, the immune system of the body responds to different infections. The white cells in the blood fight against these foreign organisms, and inflammation is externally revealed when the affected area becomes red, swollen, and painful.
There are certain diseases which are associated with inflammation, including many forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid, osteo-arthritis, osteoporosis, back pain, and joint pain, among others. In fact, inflammation is at the root and cause of many diseases:
- Arthritis is inflammation of the joints.
- Heart disease is inflammation of the arteries.
- Inflammation of the tiny tubes which carries air to the lungs may result in shortness of breath.
- Kidney inflammation (nephritis) can lead to kidney failure, or high blood pressure.
- Inflammation in the intestines can lead to serious diarrhea, and digestion difficulties.
However, because many organs lack pain-sensitive nerves, the most pain is usually felt in arthritic inflammation of the joints and back.
