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
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
