Inflammation is your body’s response to stress – whether from your diet, lifestyle, or environment – this then results in an inflamed or heated area.
When you catch a cold, you may have inflammation in the form of a fever as your body heats up to eradicate the effects of the invading virus. This kind of inflammation is acute and beneficial, but the modern epidemic of chronic, low-grade inflammation destroys the balance in your body.
When your body’s systems experience a constant inflammatory response, you become more susceptible to aging and disease. Over time, dietary and environmental toxins build up in the body, turning on the immune system and keeping it highly reactive and in an inflamed state. Other causes of inflammation include stress, leaky gut, and chronic food allergies or food sensitivities. Essential oils can work together with healthy diet and lifestyle choices to reduce inflammation and help prevent disease.
