Is Inflammation Good or Bad?

It's Both!

Acute Inflammation

A normal, protective response to injury, infection or illness that lasts a short period of time until the body can heal itself.

Chronic Inflammation

Is not part of the body’s natural healing process. It causes your body to overreact to stressors, creating a constant inflammation response which keeps your immune system in a hyped-up state.

The human body isn’t designed to cope in a chronic inflammatory state and so it will eventually cause organ damage and disease will develop.

The following conditions are linked to chronic inflammation. The type of illness is typically dependent on which organs the inflammation is impacting:

Heart Disease



Multiple Sclerosis

Ulcerative Colitis

Crohn's Disease

Rheumatoid Arthritis



Your lifestyle habits such as diet, nutrition and exercise may affect the way your body responds to infection, illness or injury.

The use of an “anti-inflammatory” can artificially interrupt or block the inflammation which may also block the healing.

Proper Nutrients

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) help regulate and balance the inflammation process so that healing can occur.

EFAs such as omega-3s and omega-6s are necessary for health but cannot be synthesized by humans from other fatty acids. Therefore it is critical to get a good balance of these high quality essential fatty acids in our diet to help regulate and resolve the inflammation process.

The Standard American Diet (SAD) has an overabundance of omega-6s and not enough omega-3s which throws of the balance of these two EFAs. This imbalance may result in continuously low levels of chronic inflammation.

It is sometimes difficult to achieve this from your diet alone and there are many poor quality nutritional supplements on the market.

In our clinic, through Nutrition Response Testing, we are able to test the body and determine which organs are under stress using a biofeedback analysis technique to identify and treat nutritional deficiencies and create a customized program to restore your health.

The products we carry are very high quality, effective and made from whole foods.
