Anti-Inflammatory Support-Integrative Medicine
The inflammatory response (physiologic stress response) is really the initial field of battle delivered by our immune system. Inflammation occurs when tissues are injured by bacteria, viruses, yeast, molds, trauma, toxins, heat, or any cellular damaging chemical compound. The damaged cells release cellular and systemic chemicals including histamine, bradykinin, and prostaglandins. These chemicals cause blood vessels to leak fluid into the tissues and the cells to swell effectively isolating them. Inflammation is in fact described as swelling, redness, increased heat and blood circulation and pain. The Ebb phase/lag phase occurs for 12 to 36 hours after the event with the body trying to conserve its resources by reducing vital signs, The Flow phase/hypermetabolic phase peaks in about 4 days and usually lasts about 10 days depending on health factors and the extent of injury/infection. This phase causes a dramatic release of required vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and other healing nutrients/cofactors from the body’s endogenous pool resulting in significant systemic deficiencies. There is significant increase in electrolytes especially potassium along with glucose and the causal agent must be addressed quickly or multiple organ failures can occur including death. Anabolic phase/recovery phase often called healing phase must incorporate aggressive nutritional support to insure proper healing and promote nitrogen balance and intra-cellular health. It is absolutely essential to boost the immune system for proper recovery to be realized and insure appropriate future immune response. A weakened or dysfunctional immune system affects allergies, inflammation, as well as microbial infections. There are very effective immune boosters such as Mycoceutics and Astragalus Max-V available with zero contaminants. It is also important to provide a balanced mineral array with emphasis on magnesium since it is the number one deficiency in America. I prefer Magnesium Taurate 400 to help promote a positive cellular pH along with enabling over 300 mineral mediated enzymatic pathways to complete. Very important also to provide a professional grade full spectrum "Multi" such as Ultra Preventive X and of course the “anti-inflammatory herbs” like Ayur-Curcumin, Ayur-Boswellia Serrata and Ginger Root. Anti-inflammatory ointment, such as Traumeel is also useful.
