(NaturalNews) Inflammation is a necessary temporary immune reaction to help heal a wound or fight off infectious pathogens that have collected in any physiological area. The key word is "temporary."

If inflammation becomes chronic, it generates a multitude of autoimmune diseases. An autoimmune disease is one where the immune system's attack against pathogens or toxic invaders becomes a chronic attack on healthy tissue.

Dr. Russell Blaylock, retired neurosurgeon and author of Excitoxins: The Taste that Kills and other books cites the cytokine storm from vaccinations as a source of disabling reactions from vaccinations.

The toxic adjuvants and preservatives in vaccines, coupled with the dead or not-quite-dead viruses can create an overwhelming immune response that turns against the vaccination recipient.

There are many examples of this ranging from Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) to autism spectrum disorders and childhood allergies. Of course, only about five percent of those are officially reported as issues connected to vaccinations. (http://www.naturalnews.com/033868_vaccine_injuries_compensation.html)

Our everyday, polluted environments and processed foods are other carriers of toxins that can also stimulate out of control immune system reactions that evolve into chronic inflammation. Junk food diets and antibiotics destroy beneficial gut bacteria, leading to Candida yeast overgrowth and many difficult to diagnose symptoms.

Now, even cardiovascular arterial clogging and heart disease is being traced to chronic inflammation. The too much fat and cholesterol mythology is crumbling in the light of newer evidence that points to chronic inflammation from toxicity in the arterial walls as the source of heart disease. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

Often, there is an awareness of pain from inflammation. Arthritic pain is one example; Crohn's disease is another. But it's difficult to feel inflammatory pain in nerve sheathing, blood cells, and inner arterial walls. But sometimes we are not aware of internal chronic inflammation through obvious pain.

Mainstream medicine treats the symptoms of inflammation with no regard to the causes and prescribes pharmaceutical solutions that create more inflammatory side effects. As functional medicine goes, Dr. Mark Hymann quips, "Medicine as it is practiced today is like taking the battery out of a smoke detector while a fire burns down your house!"

Four natural approaches for curbing chronic inflammation

The food foundation for these approaches is whole, organic foods without refined sugar and synthetic sweeteners. Back off fast foods, most restaurant foods, fast foods and even processed foods in health food stores.

(1) Move toward balancing Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids. Most of the above contain Omega-6 processed fatty acids that are toxic. Use non-hydrogenated, cold pressed plant oils, excluding Canola, for Omega-6 acids. Add chia seeds, ground flax seeds, and cold water fish oils or krill oils for Omega-3.

(2) The more someone slides toward acidosis (chronically low pH), the more inflammation mounts. So it's wise to use more foods that are alkaline forming and minimize those that are acid forming. Greens and other plant-based foods are alkaline producing. Baking soda in water is very alkaline forming. (http://www.naturalnews.com/034947_acid_reflux_GERD_foods.html)

Cooked meats, coffee, sugars, bleached white flour products, and alcohol are acid forming. Ironically, acidic citrus lemon/lime water solutions and unpasteurized or raw apple cider vinegar (ACV) in water are alkaline forming within the body's pH buffer system.

(3) Curcumin/turmeric is now recognized as a safe, inexpensive, effective inflammation remedy. It's an herbal spice, so it takes some daily use to realize its benefits. (http://www.naturalnews.com/028556_turmeric_anti-inflammatory.html)

(4) Whatever non-pharmaceutical measure you can apply to reduce anxiety and stress will also reduce inflammation and increase alkalinity. If it's exercise, pick something you enjoy. Bouncing on a mini-trampoline (rebounder) drains your usually ignored lymph gland fluids. (http://www.naturalnews.com/031199_rebounding_lymphatic_system.html)

Yoga, chi-gong, tai-chi, and meditation over time will do wonders for your overall immunity health and mental state.
