Essential Oils For Inflammation
What is Inflammation? What creates it in the body?
Inflammation is actually part of the bodyâ€™s defense system. It is an immune response to rid the body of harmful stimuli so the body can begin the healing process.
The body increases blood to the injured tissues or affected area for healing. This is why you often see swelling, redness or feel pain and heat in the affected area. This is called acute inflammation.
Inflammation becomes chronic inflammation when the body does not turn off and the immune system's response actually begins to damage the body. This chronic inflammation can often lead to more progressive conditions such as arthritis and even heart disease.
