Are you exhausted all the time, struggling to get through your day? Are there days when even small tasks feel like far-too-much effort and you suffer from a constant feeling of “brain fog”? If so, chances are you might be experiencing chronic inflammation. Sure, we all know those mild aches here and there can creep in, but having persistently inflamed joints or organs is something entirely different. Ignoring these issues will only lead to more problems down the line, so if it sounds like this could be something you’re dealing with, read on, because I’m about to share with you why fatigue, poor digestion, and immunological disruptions occur (among other symptoms), as well as help provide natural solutions for managing and improving your health.
So what is inflammation?
Our bodies are wonderfully adept at defense mechanisms. Inflammation is one of the go-to responses if something feels off. Whether it’s a toxin, an infection, or even hormonal imbalances, our immune system jumps into action to fight for us.
Now, what could you feel?
- Feeling as if you’re fatigued every day can be exhausting, both physically and mentally. You may start to worry about how your exhaustion is affecting other aspects of your life.
- You don’t have good sleep. and even when you did, you’d wake up tired.
- You are stressed out all the time. Being constantly stressed can take its toll. It can leave you feeling overwhelmed and quickly damage your professional and personal life if left unchecked.
- You have a feeling like a world is getting ahead of you. The tasks, deadlines to meet, and all the stresses in life can be overwhelming for some. That feeling of being overwhelmed can lead to a deeper state of distress, such as anxiety or depression.
- You have been diagnosed with diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and/or an autoimmune condition.
Have you ever found yourself in a confounding quandary? Feeling out of sorts without any obvious rationale? It could be that your body is inflamed! Increased inflammation can often lead to undesirable physical and mental issues.
In an Inflammation
Are you familiar with what happens to your body when it experiences exposure to toxins, infection, or other metabolic issues? Your immune system kicks into high gear and works hard to manage the inflammation in order to get things under control.
Now, in layman’s terms, we have 3-4 signs of inflammation:
- Rubor – when you have an external infection, the skin will be reddish in color
- Calor – you will feel a slight increase in temperature
- Dolor – and then it’ll be painful
- Tumor – in some cases, it will be swollen
These are the features of inflammation.
However, it may not always be painful when your body has inflammation inside. But there are a lot of processes going on. For example, whenever your body is inflamed, your cholesterol levels will go up. This is because it’s one of the key factors in controlling inflammation.
There are plenty of creative ways to reduce inflammation.
First and foremost is nutrition
Eating a balanced, healthy diet. Instead of jumping on the fad diet bandwagon, why not focus on making smart and balanced decisions about what you eat? Long-term success comes from healthy habits that promote both physical and mental well-being.
A balanced diet means you’re eating foods that are less inflammatory. It has to include more green vegetables, a limited amount of grains, and fruits like berries, nuts, and seeds. Tasty and nutritious fatty fish like salmon or tuna, as well as organic lean meats such as chicken, turkey, and lean beef, can help you reach your protein goals in a delicious way.
If you want to look after your nutrition, finding out and supplementing what may be missing from your diet is a great way to give yourself an edge! Whether it’s Vitamin D3, B Vitamins, or something else – addressing any nutritional deficiencies could make all the difference.
Getting more sleep
It doesn’t take a genius to recognize that when you don’t get enough sleep, your body isn’t functioning as optimally as it should.
Lack of sleep can trigger the release of cortisol in your body, which, unfortunately, increases inflammation. The brain is no exception. When we don’t have sufficient rest, cortisol levels go off the charts, and our bodies start sending little red flags, reminding us that it’s time for a shut-eye break.
To keep ourselves feeling better and working more efficiently, it’s essential to prioritize getting a sufficient amount of sleep. Think of it as an investment in your health.
Balancing your hormones
Many of us are unaware that hormones are essential to living a healthy lifestyle, but when properly balanced, hormones can help reduce inflammation, improve overall health, and lower the risk of chronic illnesses. Checking and balancing hormones like cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, and testosterone is a great way to start the rebalancing process.
With the right approach, you can improve your hormonal balance naturally without harming your body or doing anything drastic. It’s time to start paying closer attention to your hormones in order to get on the path to great health. You can seek a qualified professional who understands hormones. This way, you can get it checked and balanced naturally without any more need for supplementation.
Get rid of toxins
A detox is a great way to get rid of toxins and reduce inflammation in your body.
Rather than rely on unorthodox methods and diets, you can take control of your health with certain foods that support this process. Fruits and vegetables, for example, are naturally rich in antioxidants and fiber, two nutrients that actively help the body flush toxins through the digestive system. Dietary changes may be difficult to adjust to at first, but in the long run, they’re well worth it, helping you feel healthier and look better while doing your part to support nature.
Managing stress can be difficult. As inflammation builds up in stressful environments, the difficulty of managing stress grows exponentially.
But it’s important to remember that there are several practices you can use to help manage your own stress levels and maintain equilibrium throughout the day. Since inflammation is a major source of stress, one such practice is regular exercise, which helps reduce inflammation and increases endorphins, which are natural mood enhancers in our bodies. Lastly, setting aside dedicated relaxation time for yourself every day helps too, whether it be reading a book or listening to some music. These simple techniques may take time and consistent effort, but with persistence, you’ll find balance and inner peace with your lifestyle over time.
So, those are some of the main causes of inflammation.
