Chronic inflammation is linked to many diseases including, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, IBS, heart disease and even some cancers. We don't have to resign ourselves to thinking its a natural part of our life cycle. Its not normal, in fact, it is most often caused by poor food choices and stressful lifestyles which are accelerating the ageing process and the onset of many health concerns associated with it.
When we experience physical symptoms associated with inflammation, eg. swollen joints, psoriasis etc there is also an internal reaction taking place. The bodies immune system is in overdrive and this can cause tiredness, aches and pains, amongst other symptoms.
