I recently posted an announcement, through various social media sites, that combating inflammation was a major area of focus for medica…the healing arts in 2016.
My concerned was increased when in January, 19 new and existing clients had reported they recently sought medical care for various ailments.
These ailments included:
- Chronic fatigue
- High Blood Pressure
- Skin rashes, psoarsis, eczema
- Anxiety, panic attacks
- Sore muscles, pain in upper back and shoulders, thoracic and hip areas
This was a significant increase for dis-eases that are directly related to chronic inflammation. Since January, I have been researching various allopathic, homeopathic and naturopathic sources to confirm the connection between chronic inflammation and some very serious dis-eases.
It has been a true eye-opening experience.
After a very short period of time, it became apparent that all of these dis-eases have a common root — chronic inflammation.
Normally, inflammation is a helpful aspect to our healing. Inflammation is the first announcer that something is not right with our body. It calls attention for the need of extra care to help the body heal.
Chronic inflammation is very different. It progresses slowly and builds to a point where our immune system no longer protects and cleans our bodies. Chronic inflammation causes the immune system to attack our major organs, degrade our hormonal responses and erode mental clarity.

I am in the process of interviewing local functional medicine practitioners to assist with blood work, food sensitivities and intake recommendations. Also, I am meeting with a chef that is interested in formulating personal, in-house training sessions on how to prepare and cook whole foods. She understands this needs to be fast and easy.
