Chronic signs of inflammation are: swollen feet, high cholesterol, high percentage of body fat, mental and physical fatigue, and persisting aches and pains.

The problem, however, isn’t the inflammation itself—the problem is the underlying cause.

If you suppress the inflammation with anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or aspirin and statins, you will potentially shorten your life, and cause a plethora of unnecessary side effects.

Inflammation in the body can be caused by these factors:

  • A poor diet
  •  Food sensitivities
  •  Stress
  •  Poor sleeping habits
  •  Toxins such as mercury and pesticides
  •  Environmental allergies to mold, dust, or cleaning products
  •  Lack of exercise
  •  A hidden illness
  •  A parasite or yeast overgrowth

It may be a combination of these causes, or could be boiled down to one simple ingredient.
