Inflammation

Inflammation is the body's natural way of self-protecting itself. The goal of the inflammation is to remove harmful stimuli such as; damaged cells, irritations, or bacteria. After this stage the body can begin its natural healing process.

The body has a biological response to remove anything that is harmful or irritating to any part of our body. Inflammation, specifically acute inflammation, is the visual signs and noticeable symptoms that this response is taking place. It is also an indication that the body is beginning the process of trying to heal itself.

When inflammation occurs in the body it does not mean that there is an infection present, even though an infection can cause inflammation. An infection is actually caused by a bacterium, fungus, or virus. Inflammation is just the body's natural response to the infection or any other irritants.

Initially, inflammation is beneficial in helping protect tissue in case of an injury. However, inflammation can lead to a perpetual case of more inflammation due to the response to the initial presence of inflammation.
