Pain, stiffness, and swelling are health annoyances that affect everyone, from elite athletes to the aging population. When there are no other explanations for the root cause of these symptoms, we say that they are due to chronic inflammation.
Inflammation is estimated to affect about two thirds of Americans, and climbing every year. A general lack of treatment options has more and more people turning to hemp-based CBD products to safely support a healthy immune system and well-lubricated, pain-free body.
Many environmental and lifestyle triggers can lead to chronic inflammation. Learn to curb these, and ease even your most complex symptoms.
At its essence, inflammation is the body’s reaction to an increase in white blood cell counts. Your body is smart, and releases the white blood cells, its main line of defense, to tackle foreign invaders – but sometimes, this reaction leads to blood and fluid collection deep within.
Feverishness, redness and swelling – though painful at times – are all signs that your body is generally doing its job defending against disease.
If you’ve been missing out on sleep more than usual, you might notice an uptick in your body’s inflammation levels. That’s because the body uses your precious sleep hours to dispose of old cells and rebuild new ones. By depriving yourself of healthy sleep, you’ll be plagued by new aches and pains each time you wake up.
Can’t ever seem to drink enough water during the day? You’re not alone. Dehydration is one of the main triggers for inflammation among otherwise healthy people. When your body lacks fluids, cellular regeneration is slower and your body’s defenses are generally down, creating the perfect environment for inflammation to develop.
Eating the right healthy foods – and avoiding the wrong ones – can help regulate inflammation and lessen the severity of many of the symptoms. Remove things like caffeine, processed meats and refined sugar from your diet; replace them with dark vegetables, fruits and anti-inflammatories like turmeric and hemp CBD supplements, and watch as your daily well being improves.
Did you know that your mental state can affect your physical health in a big way? Keeping your mind relaxed and practicing healthy breathing techniques or meditation is a great way to start your journey of healing from inflammation.
Remember to talk regularly with your doctor about any swelling, pain or symptoms. While many inflammatory triggers are things we can control, some may also require professional medical attention.
