Inflammation is one of the most common underlying disease processes that we know of.

Therefore if you prevent inflammation you are preventing chronic disease.

And how do you know if treating inflammation should be part of your treatment and prevention strategy?

Muscle strains and prolonged muscle soreness after working out, as well as menopause symptoms such as insomnia and hot flashes, are something I didn’t link to inflammation. It is disheartening to discover that muscle workouts actually cause inflammation. I guess as we age, we need to convince ourselves that certain forms of exercise that are more gentle on the body, still can achieve the desired outcomes of strength, muscle definition and fat loss. I have a tough time with that one.
