The 10 Causes of Inflammation
Our Educational Content is Not Meant or Intended for Medical Advice or Treatment
Inflammation comes in different shapes and sizes. Generally, causes of inflammation vary, depending on a number of factors and among these are low cortisol, trauma, sugar, grains, vegetable oil, alcohol, dairy, MSG, excessive protein, excessive cooked food and high alkalinity.
When you have low cortisol, your body doesn’t have enough anti-inflammatory capabilities. Too much sugar leads to insulin resistance, in which inflammation is one of the common manifestations.
Grains that contain gluten triggers inflammation in the gut. High alkalinity causes allergies. Vegetable oils like corn, soy, safflower and sunflower oil contain high levels of Omega-6, which is also present in many commercial dairy products. Monosodium glutamate, popularly known as the MSG, is a neurotoxin that enhances the flavors of food.
Undigested proteins will strain the liver and kidneys, which can ultimately lead to gout. Varying your food intake will help lessen your chances of inflammation, as cooked, canned or pasteurized foods. Food processing and certain cooking methods can destroy the enzymes needed by the body to digest well and get rid of toxins.
