Inflammation can happen anywhere in the body.  It is your job to keep inflammation in control so that it does not create health problems later on down the years for you.

This year I am getting a long list of blood test for part of my annual checkup with my doctor.  One, of the test I will get is C-reactive protein test that will measure any hidden inflammation in my body.  I have had both hips replaced and several broken arms when I was a child so there may be inflammation that I do not know about.

Here is a list that Dr. Mark Hyman say may cause inflammation or hidden inflammation:

Poor Diet – mostly sugar, refined flours, processed foods, and bad fats

Lack of exercise

Stress

Hidden or chronic infections with viruses, bacteria, yeasts, or parasites

Allergens from food or environment

Toxins = mercury and pesticides

Mold toxins and allergens

When I get my blood test results back = then I will decide what action I need to take for relieving this hidden inflammation
