    How Inflammation Affects Every Aspect of Your Health

    Dr. David M. Marquis, DC, DACBN

       Inflammation controls our lives. Have you or a loved one dealt with pain, obesity, ADD/ADHD, peripheral neuropathy, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, migraines, thyroid issues, dental issues, or cancer?

       If you answered yes to any of these disorders you are dealing with inflammation.

       Sadly, most of us are suffering from one or more of these disorders but have no idea how to eliminate inflammation. Most doctors are utilizing pharmaceuticals in lieu of getting to the root cause.

       It often seems extremely foreign to most people when they realize the majority of inflammatory diseases start in the gut with an autoimmune reaction which progresses into systemic inflammation. To truly be effective at managing or hopefully overcome a disease it needs to be addressed on all levels. Taking a look at where this process starts is the key.

    Where Does Inflammation Begin?

       Your gut is made of an incredibly large and intricate semi-permeable lining. The surface area of your gut can cover two tennis courts when stretched out flat.

       Its degree of permeability fluctuates in response to a variety of chemically mediated conditions. For example when your cortisol is elevated due to the stress of an argument or your thyroid hormone levels fluctuate due to burning the midnight oil your intestinal lining becomes more permeable in real time.

       Then you sit down to eat and partially undigested food, toxins, viruses, yeast, and bacteria have the opportunity to pass through the intestine and access the bloodstream, this is known as leaky gut syndrome, or LGS.

       When the intestinal lining is repeatedly damaged due to reoccurring leaky gut syndrome, damaged cells called microvilli become unable to do their job properly. They become unable to process and utilize the nutrients and enzymes that are vital to proper digestion. Eventually, digestion is impaired and absorption of nutrients is negatively affected. As more exposure occurs, your body initiates an attack on these foreign invaders. It responds with inflammation, allergic reactions, and other symptoms we relate to a variety of diseases.

       So you might ask, what’s the harm of inflammation and ongoing allergic reactions?

       It may sound relatively harmless, but this situation can and often does lead to numerous serious and debilitating diseases. Since your immune system can become overburdened, these inflammatory triggers are cycled continuously through your blood where they affect nerves, organs, connective tissues, joints, and muscles. You can probably begin to see how diseases develop.

    Inflammation Triggers the Symptoms of Disease

       The presence of inflammation is what makes most disease perceptible to an individual. It can and often does occur for years before it exists at levels sufficient to be apparent or clinically significant. How long it has been smoldering really determines the degree of severity of a disease and often the prognosis assuming the inflammation can be controlled. One could also argue that without inflammation most disease would not even exist. Take a look at this list of diseases and their relationship with inflammation:

    Disease Mechanism
    Allergy 4 Immune Mediated Types + Sensitivities, all of which cause inflammation
    Alzheimer's Chronic inflammation destroys brain cells
    Anemia Inflammatory cytokines attack erythropoietin production
    Ankylosing Spondylitis Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against joint surfaces
    Asthma Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against airway lining
    Autism Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions in the brain arresting right hemisphere development
    Arthritis Inflammatory cytokines destroy joint cartilage and synovial fluid
    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Chronic inflammation causes excessive muscle tension shortening tendons in the forearm and wrist compressing the nerves.
    Celiac Chronic immune mediated inflammation damages intestinal lining
    Crohn's Disease Chronic immune mediated inflammation damages intestinal lining
    Congestive heart failure Chronic inflammation contributes to heart muscle wasting
    Eczema Chronic inflammation of the gut and liver with poor detoxification and often antibodies against Transglutaminase-3.
    Fibromyalgia Inflamed connective tissue often food allergy related and exacerbated by secondary nutritional and neurological imbalances.
    Fibrosis Inflammatory cytokines attack traumatized tissue
    Gall Bladder Disease Inflammation of the bile duct or excess cholesterol produced in response to gut inflammation
    GERD Inflammation of the esophagus and digestive tract nearly always food sensitivity and pH driven
    Guillain-Barre Autoimmune attack of the nervous system often triggered by autoimmune response to external stressors such as vaccinations.
    Hashimoto's Thyroiditis Autoimmune reaction originating in the gut triggered by antibodies against thyroid enzymes and proteins
    Heart attack Chronic inflammation contributes to coronary atherosclerosis
    Kidney failure Inflammatory cytokines restrict circulation and damage nephrons and tubules in the kidneys
    Lupus Inflammatory cytokines induce an autoimmune attack against connective tissue
    Multiple Sclerosis Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against myelin
    Neuropathy Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against myelin and vascular and connective tissues which irritate nerves.
    Pancreatitis Inflammatory cytokines induce pancreatic cell injury
    Psoriasis Chronic inflammation of the gut and liver with poor detoxification
    Polymyalgia Rheumatica Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against muscles and connective tissue
    Rheumatoid Arthritis Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against joints
    Scleroderma Inflammatory cytokines induce an autoimmune attack against connective tissue
    Stroke Chronic inflammation promoted thromboembolic events

    Surgical complications Inflammatory cytokines (often pre-dating the surgery) slow or prevent healing
