With inflammation, it is a beneficial sign that your body is fighting to repair itself by sending in an army of healing white blood cells. As your injury heals or illness eases and is brought under control, inflammation subsides.

Inflammation occurs without serving any healthful purpose, such as when you experience chronic stress, have an autoimmune disorder, or obesity.

Symptoms of Chronic Inflammation

There are some common symptoms of chronic inflammation, you may be experiencing:

  • Digestive issues
  • Low energy
  • Body pain, especially in the joints
  • Skin issues, like eczema
  • Autoimmune disease, like arthritis, thyroid, celiac disease
  • High blood glucose
  • High cholesterol
  • Allergies

Rather than solving a problem and receding, inflammation can last over a certain period of time, damaging the body and potentially leading to health problems like arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, and cancer.
