How chronic systemic inflammation impacts the body and brain
In this talk, Dr. Kharrazian reviews the many pathways through which inflammation impacts the body. In a nutshell, inflammation is like throwing fuel onto the fire. Wherever you already have issues with pain or inflammation, an inflammatory diet and other triggers will simply worsen those conditions. Aging is another consideration — as we age we naturally become more prone to inflammation due to the gradual decline of the body's antioxidant systems. You will learn about these mechanisms, how to find triggers of inflammation, and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant strategies to mitigate the damage.Find out more on drknews.com.[00:00:24] . So now, when you're looking at what causes inflammation, the first answer is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants. Inflammation can also be caused by an imbalance of our microbiome. Systemic inflammation caused by imbalance of free radicals/antioxidants and microbiome.[00:23:37] Antioxidants and anti-inflammatories protect body from free radicals; various compounds have different mechanisms; common ones include vitamin E, fish oils, antihistamines, resveratrol, turmeric, vitamin A, vitamin C, and liposomal glutathione.[00:26:06] C reactive protein is a blood biomarker used as a general marker for inflammation. High levels (over 3 or 5) can indicate disease, but not all inflammation increases production of CRP.[00:30:21] Insulin resistance causes chronic inflammation, immune response, free radicals and oxidative stress, leading to tissue damage.[00:32:30] Exercise can cause inflammation in those with chronic conditions, so they should work their way up, clean their diet, and take antioxidants.[00:34:45] Neurogenic inflammation triggered by stress, lack of sleep and unhealthy relationships.[00:37:52] Turmeric has active curcuminoids that have an anti-inflammatory effect; people have different cost-benefit ratios for using it; other anti-inflammatory compounds may be more effective for some people.[00:43:36] Gut Puzzle program teaches diet, lifestyle, and understanding of gut dysfunctions to treat sibo and other conditions.[00:46:41] Cortisol has a bi-directional effect on inflammation, health, and gut; acute stress is anti-inflammatory, chronic stress is catabolic and can create inflammatory responses.[00:51:09] Gut motility problems, such as those caused by inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases, can lead to chronic constipation. Gut Health Puzzle program teaches how to address these issues.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/solving-the-puzzle-with-dr-datis-kharrazian. Hosted on Acast.
