Inflammation inside the body is just now getting a much needed spotlight. It has been the villian in many deseases since time began and believe it or not the first physicians understood this concept thousands of years ago and kept the body alkaline and inflammation free through herbs.
Essential Fatty Acids are also coming into their own and one of the most important jobs they do within the body is to keep inflammation down.
I suggest you Google Inflammation and read all the articles available on the subject.
I am so happy you are curious enough to seek the answer and hope you find it to your better health.
