Alternative therapies are typically not a first-line treatment for inflammation, but they can be an excellent option to consider as more traditional treatments have failed.
Inflammation is a process by which your body’s white blood cells and the things they make protect you from infection. In some diseases, like arthritis, your immune system causes inflammation when there are no invaders to fight off. When this happens in autoimmune diseases, it can cause damage to regular tissues that aren’t infected or abnormal at all!
People with chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity often have higher levels of inflammatory markers in their bodies. Experts believe inflammation may contribute to these conditions. For example, metabolic syndrome – which includes type 2 diabetes among other things- is linked to inflammation that can result from the production or overproduction of proinflammatory cytokines by immune cells called macrophages.
Inflammation is typically either short-lived and goes away within hours or days(acute), but sometimes it can be long-lasting (chronic).
When tissues are injured, the body will react with acute inflammation within seconds to minutes. Signs of this include redness due to increased blood flow and heat from vasodilatation, swelling caused by fluid loss into your interstitial space which is also a result of an increase in permeability through local vessels that occurs during inflammatory events, as well as pain when nerve endings are being stimulated mechanically or chemically.
Inflammation is often referred to as “slow, long-term” which can last anywhere from months up until years depending on what caused it and your body’s ability to heal itself after injury or damage has been done – but it’s known to last for a very long time if not treated properly.
Many people suffer from chronic inflammation and are looking for a natural alternative treatment. HBOT is one such option. It stands for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, which can be effective in helping to ease the symptoms of chronic inflammation by using oxygen therapy under pressure.
Another new and innovative treatment that can help reduce your inflammation is PEMF Therapy. The PEMF device is an alternative treatment method for those with chronic inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia.
Here’s what it does: the magnetic field stimulates the cells to create ATP which in turn reduces pain and other symptoms of inflammation. It also increases circulation by increasing blood flow which helps clear toxins from tissues more efficiently.
PEMF is an excellent tool to help you recover from disease faster and live a happier life. MiraZone Chronic Pain and Inflammation Treatment Center offer high-intensity PEMF that can be as short as 3 minutes but still have profound effects on your health.
