Systemic inflammation is part of the body’s defense system. But chronic inflammation can create oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction and instead of helping, it harms. Patients feel fatigued, experience vague body pain, complain of GI problems, and may suffer from mood swings. Many of the body’s systems may be involved – but it all traces back to unhealthy inflammation.
An unhealthy immune system or an unresolved injury or illness keeps systems inflamed. Steroids can temporarily reduce systemic inflammation, but they are not a long-term solution for chronic systemic inflammation. A change in diet to feature inflammation-fighting foods and the addition of a regime of nutritional supplements such as fish oil and lipoic acid can support healthy lipid homeostasis, while powerful antioxidants scavenge free radicals.
