Chronic inflammation: The causes and solutions

(Natural News) There is growing consensus – among holistically-minded healthcare providers and conventionally-trained physicians alike – that chronic inflammation is the root cause of chronic disease. And, as we all know, chronic diseases like, arthritis, cancer and diabetes, are a growing concern throughout the Western world. (for good reason – as you’ll soon see) In...

Abstract PROBLEM: Chronic diseases and conditions (e.g., heart diseases, stroke, arthritis, and diabetes) are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States. These conditions are costly to the U.S. economy, yet they are often preventable or controllable. Behavioral risk factors (e.g., excessive alcohol consumption, tobacco use, poor diet, frequent mental distress, and insufficient sleep) are linked to the leading causes of morbidity and mortality. Adopting positive health behaviors (e.g., staying physically active, quitting tobacco use, obtaining routine physical checkups, and checking blood pr...

Publication date: Available online 14 September 2017 Source:Preventive Medicine Author(s): Mary L. Adams, Joseph Grandpre, David L. Katz, Douglas Shenson Multiple (≥2) chronic conditions (MCCs) are responsible for a large fraction of healthcare costs. Our aim was to examine possible associations between MCCs and composite measures of behavioral risk factors (RFs). Data were publicly available 2013 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and included 483,865 non-institutionalized US adults ages ≥18years. Chronic conditions included asthma, arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cognitive impairment, hea...

(Natural News) Just one century ago in America, all of the most popular chronic diseases and disorders that we know so well today barely existed, including cancer, diabetes type 2, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s and heart disease. Still, nearly every medical doctor in the United States blames hereditary genes for these preventable health problems, as...

This study developed the first procedure for the removal of epithelium from the lung airway with the full preservation of vascular epithelium, which could be applied in vivo to treat diseases of lung epithelium. Whole lung scaffolds with an intact vascular network may also allow for recellularization using patient-specific cells and bioengineering of chimeric lungs for transplantation. In addition to the clinical potential, lung scaffolds lacking an intact epithelial layer but with functional vascular and interstitial compartments may also serve as a valuable physiological model for investigating (i) lung development, (ii)...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Inflammation activated by oxidative stress can cause various diseases, such as asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, diabetes, etc. Plant constituents with sesquiterpene lactones possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. AIM: To determine the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory potential of isolated phytoconstituent from Cyathocline purpurea Buch-Ham ex D (CP). Don in laboratory animals. Furthermore, to understand the interactions involved in the binding of this compound to cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) via computational docking. METHODS: Phytoconstituent was isolated, purified ...

Publication date: Available online 2 August 2017 Source:Autoimmunity Reviews Author(s): Marina Mesquida, Blanca Molins, Víctor Llorenç, Maite Sáinz de la Maza, Alfredo Adán Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a key cytokine that is strongly up-regulated during infection and inflammation. Featuring pleiotropic activity, IL-6 is responsible for the induction of hepatic acute-phase proteins, trafficking of acute and chronic inflammatory cells, differentiation of adaptive T cell responses, homeostatic regulation, and tissue regeneration. Dysregulated IL-6 production has been associated with the development of ...
