Chronic, silent inflammation is the root cause of hundreds of diseases, including cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and autoimmune disease. Autoimmune disease is a group of chronic health problems caused when the body’s immune system mistakenly destroys healthy cells and organs of the body.
The list of autoimmune conditions is big and includes rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. A great number of health conditions are now considered to be autoimmune in nature, including endometriosis, alopecia and multiple sclerosis.
Signs and symptoms of inflammation:
- Constant fatigue
- Joint pain
- Unexplained weight gain
