Temporary swelling and irritation can be side-effects of the process as the immune system invades affected areas.
But for many people something has gone awry in the supposedly temporary inflammatory response, leading to a more permanent form of inflammation that has been linked to a host of other health issues.
'Chronic Inflammation' made the
front cover of Time magazine on February 23, 2004, as the famous weekly news
journal explored what it called at the time, "circumstantial" evidence
linking inflammation to a wider pool of ailments typically experienced by
middle-aged and mature aged people.
"This concept is so intriguing because it suggests a new and possibly much simpler way of warding off disease. Instead of different treatments for, say, heart disease, Alzheimer's and colon cancer, there might be a single, inflammation-reducing remedy that would prevent all three," said TimeMagazine.
Nutritional intake is almost always responsible for the presentation of an illness or chronic biological imbalance leading to the possibility of bodily inflammation. In short the immune system is struggling to deal with an out-of-control biosystem - a bit like stabilisers on a ship working overtime to counterbalance the sway of the vessel from one side to another. It's the same in the body as the immune system works overtime to counterbalance inflammation as a result of infections, parasites, fungus, moulds and other pathogens which have invaded the body.
research we have found that cherries, which enjoy a high media profile, have
beneficial effects on inflammation as well as arthritis. Researchers have
discovered the reason being that cherries have distinct anti-inflammatory
properties, as reported by The American Arthritis Foundation.
'Drinking tart cherry juice mixed with water three times a day may be beneficial for some people with arthritis. Cherries also contain varied antioxidants, including kaempferol and quercetin. These compounds, particularly quercetin, may have anti-inflammatory effects that are similar to those of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen)'.
evidence links cherries to not only help ease the pain of arthritis and gout,
but also to reducing risk factors for heart disease, diabetes and certain
cancers. Cherries also contain melatonin, which has been found to help regulate
the body’s natural sleep patterns, aid with jet lag, prevent memory loss and
delay the aging process.
Tart cherries contain anthocyanins. These were found to prevent free radical damage and inhibit cyclooxygenase enzymes better than some anti-inflammatory drugs that work as inhibitors. It also turns out that cherries contain flavonoids and antioxidants that have a protective effect on the stomach. It seems that nature has thought of everything. Researchers believe there's strong evidence to add cherries to your daily diet. But these are not always available.
