If you follow any sort of news in science in medicine, you likely know that scientist now believe that inflammation plays a key role in many of the diseases people experience, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and many others. It seems as if inflammation within our bodies paves the ways for theses disease to wreak havoc on our health. Lets try to figure how we can reduce inflammation.

Inflammation is an important part of our body’s immune response. It manifests in many ways, from swollen, warm or reddened areas that are painful to the touch, to the aching you feel in joints in muscles, and many other ways that you might not notice. It is part of our body’s healing process. 

The problem becomes, our bodies can become chronically inflamed, often with low level inflammation; this is when we begin to see the processes that facilitate disease in the long-term. Inflammation is similar to stress, in this sense. Our bodies are well-adapted to deal acute stress, and the hormones that stress produces have very real, tangible benefits in real life. They can mean the difference between life and death. But the chronic, low-level stress that many of experience day to day in the modern world is known to have negative physical and mental effects. Inflammation is an important part of healing wounds and broken bones, but when our bodies are chronically inflamed, this is when inflammation begins to work against us rather than for us. 

So how do our bodies become chronically inflamed? 

Scientists are implicating––you guessed it––lifestyle factors in what promotes chronic inflammation. Factors like diet, activity level, quality and quantity of sleep and even stress are all thought to contribute inflammation levels. Given the way many people live, it is no surprise that our bodies are chronically inflamed as a result. 

There might be another factor that has largely been overlooked, however. One of the markers for inflammation in the body is known as C-reactive protein, or CRP. If your levels of CRP are high, you can assume that you have high levels of inflammation in the body. 

One thing that is known to raise levels of CRP is the presence of yeast or fungi in the body. 

Doug has often compared what happens to dough when you add yeast to what yeast can do in our own bodies; yeast can make things swell, creating pressure and pain and what we would call inflammation. It is interesting that it’s presence can be detected by a test that tests for inflammation. 

Ultimately, this yeast can be fueled by what we put in our bodies––a diet high in sugar and simple starches, which is a diet many people regularly consume. It comes as no surprise that diets high in sugar are thought to promote inflammation in the body. 

One way to fight inflammation in the body might be to try an anti-fungal program, such as the Kaufmann Diet. Not only does it remove many of the dietary factors thought to promote inflammation, you will be starving your body of pathogenic fungi. Many people report feeling much better after spending about a month on the diet. This in tandem with other lifestyle changes, such as sensible exercise, stress-reduction and healthy sleep patterns might go a long way towards transforming your health in both the near and long-term.
