A healthy lifestyle is the bond that connects all of our systems together.
Inflammation in the body manifests itself in many, many ways. It could be joint pain, behavior issues, obesity, weight gain, gastrointestinal, skin related, autoimmune disease, depression, anxiety, dementia, high cholesterol or blood pressure, chronic sinus infection, seasonal allergies, chronic ear infection, and so on. When you have a symptom your body is giving you a sign that something is amiss. You have to dig deeper and ask WHY, and what is the cause of the symptom in order for your body to heal. If you don’t address the inflammation and calm down the immune system, inflammation will continue to manifest itself in different ways. Taking medication to address a symptom helps the symptom, but doesn’t address the underlying inflammation and stress to your body.
If you’ve tried everything and not sure you can pinpoint what is the cause, assess whether your current lifestyle is contributing to your situation so you can begin on the road to balance your whole self.

Answering these questions can be the first step to recognizing where to begin to make effective changes to reduce or eliminate them.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. Confucius
