Food and Chronic Inflammation
80% of the immune system is in the gut, which is the largest area of
contact with the environment. For our protection, it distinguishes between
"harmless" and "harmful" on an ongoing basis. Complaints such as IBS,
Diarrhea/Constipation/Bloating, Gastritis, Reflux, Crohn's, Obesity,
Diabetes, Inability to Lose Weight, Thryroid Illness, Eczema, Psoriasis,
Rashes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Muscle Pains, Chronic Cough, Asthma,
Sinusitis, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue and ADD are often inflammatory
conditions caused by innate cellular defense reactions. They may be related
to or can be influenced by the daily diet.
Food intolerance is a possible unrecognized cause of digestive issues.
