Most people will think that the best answers to fighting diseases are always in the pharmacy, but in most cases, they are not in medications, but on the shelves or some refrigerators in the grocery stores.
Inflammation occurs when the body fights antibodies and infections through the immune system. When there are intermittent bouts of inflammation, it could become threatening to health. The inflammatory situation could persist for some days and go, but it becomes dangerous when there is inflammation even when you don’t any foreign body that is of any threat, and the persistence of this could result in chronic inflammation which is not good.
According to Harvard Health, the solutions, rather than being in medications, are more in food. Eating the right anti-inflammation foods, one may be able to reduce the risk of being sick. Also, consistent eating of the wrong food could trigger an acceleration of inflammatory disease.
