Top 15 Anti-Inflammatory Foods That Fight Pain Naturally

Inflammation is generally the body’s attempt at protecting itself with the aim of removing any harmful; stimuli from the body such as pathogens, irritants and any damaged cells in order for the body to undergo the healing process. It is our body’s way of saying that it’s not going to take illness and injury lying down.  Generally during inflammation the white blood cells and other substances that are produced by it protect greatly protects our bodies from infection caused by some foreign organisms in our bodies.

Inflammation is an important body function without which we would never cure our bodies from things like sprains and injured muscles. The body’s inflammatory response is very crucial but when it becomes chronic it can most definitely be a bad thing in as much as our bodies are not just going to spectate while we suffer from injuries and other diseases, too much inflammation can cause more harm than good to the same bodies. Weird as this may sound, it would be correct to use the phrase ‘too much of something is poisonous’ in this particular case.

There are numerous of things that could activate the body to produce an acute inflammatory response. These things involve but are not limited to;

  • Allergic reactions
  • Frostbites
  • Chemical irritants
  • Pathogenic infections
  • Sun burn or fire burns
  • Trauma (for example when one gets hit by a golf ball on the head)
  • Stabbing

There are many other injuries or eventualities that could cause acute inflammation other than the ones said above and when acute inflammation takes place there is no way you will fail to notice. Some of the signs and general symptoms that come when the body undergoes any one of the above mentioned eventualities that end up causing acute inflammation may be very uncomfortable in every sense of the word but then again they are very important and the response is very crucial in order for the body to begin the actual healing process and lead us down the road to recovery. Things like swelling, redness of the injured part of the body, heat and burning sensation, loss of body function and pain can be severely uncomfortable but these are just some of the things that lead our bodies down the road of self-recovery.

When inflammatory stops being acute and actually becomes a constant low level feature of our bodies physiology that is always engaged and always on  active, it becomes chronic and that is where things usually start going south. The inflammatory response is normally supposed to be fast and direct, but this is not the case when it comes to chronic inflammation.


Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata is a type of hair loss caused by the immune system reacting to the hair follicles as if they were antibodies and shutting them down. The hair loss is usually limited to a coin sized area and all the hair in the region is lost leaving a totally smooth round patch. In a more severe rare condition called Alopecia Totail, all hair on the entire body is lost, including the eyelashes.

Treatments include topical herbs, body modification with the use of infrared therapy treatments, supplements for cell renewal, and in some cases hypnotherapy and acupuncture. Alopecia Areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. The damage to the follicle is usually not permanent.

Experts do not know why the immune system attacks the follicles. Alopecia Areata is most common in people younger than 20, but children and adults of any age may be affected. Women and men are affected equally. There are several options for hair loss clients.

In some cases we can apply a few different methods to achieve the desired results with a low maintenance regimen. In some cases we can see increased density with certain areas if the proper treatments are used within a select time limit of when the hair loss had occurred.

Hair is a protein that grows out of hair follicles in the skin. Normally, a hair grows in the hair follicle for many months, stops growing, and falls out. A new hair then grows in the follicle. It takes weeks for a hair sample to show changes in the body, because hair grows slowly. Hair samples do not show recent changes in the body, such as drug use within the past few days. This is also why nutrition to balance the pH naturally. Aloe is the number one aid in collagen synthesis.

BFRB, What Is It?

Body-focused repetitive behaviors are physiological disorders that are characterized by picking, pulling, pinching or biting of the hair skin and nails.
They usually go in hand with other anxiety or depression disorders although there is no inherent cause but there is some ties to heredity.

People who have BFRBs are usually not conscious of the behavior as it is happening but have to deal with the side effects with bald patches and skin irritation among others. But many people with this disorder lead normal lives, have normal relationships and can flourish.

Even when you are struggling with BFRB it does not mean you are broken. Everyone has difficulties in their lives, some that will always be a struggle but in finding others with similar issues can help you build community and safety and create a supportive network of people who understand. It takes courage and persistence to address health issues and if you are looking at this you are taking at least the first steps to start healing and using tools that will lead to success and confidence.

You don’t choose to pick it’s just something you have to face. BFRB is not who you are and it doesn’t define you.
