Inflammation Natural Remedies

Inflammation is your body’s reaction to toxicity which can appear as a sore area, heat, or some inflammationarea of the body not functioning as it should; it is an immune response. You may experience pain, soreness, or discomfort; many have lower energy than normal.

Modern medicine attempts to reduce inflammation by using anti-inflammatory drugs which suppress the immune response to it, and can damage the gastro-intestinal tract.

To naturally reduce inflammation in the body, take care of the cause whether it’s toxicity, or imbalance of one of your organs, or a wound.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body's ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results -- your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.
