These 3 Ways Can Prevent Your Inflammation - Remember when was the last time you turned off your finger? Have a cold head or athletic injury? THAT'S inflammation. Can inflammation be a good thing?

You can't feel silent inflammation until cumulative damage starts talking to us, if you want, in the form of diabetes, arthritis, weight gain, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, faster aging, symptoms, and more.
Barry Sears, Ph.D. the word is best in his innovative book, 'The Anti-Inflammation Zone' "Silent inflammation is only inflammation that is below the threshold of pain that is felt."
