Inflammation Is The Cause of Acute and Chronic Pain

I read a great article this weekend at Nutritionsmart from and wanted to share some interesting excerpts with you from it.  Quoting the wisdom of ages from 5000 years ago, this is a fantastic article on pain and inflammation as the root cause.  Inflammation can affect organs, glands and other soft tissues of the body.  Experts has estimated that 80-90% of diseases are caused either directly or indirectly by inflammation.  By reducing inflammation, you initiate the healing process of the damage caused by the inflammation.

Damage such as that caused by inflammation following an injury when chemicals from the body are released into the blood which increase blood flow to the area.  The increased blood flow and release of the chemicals attract white blood cells to the site of the inflammation.  The increased number of cells and inflammatory substances can cause wearing down of cartilage (which cushions the end of the bones), irritation, and swelling of joint lining.  It was about inhibiting COX-2 enzyme to control inflammation and possibly even cancer.  Chronic aspirin users see a reduction in inflammation and cancers.  This article looks at common herbs from India, curcumin and boswellia as the answer.

A common herb known as turmeric contains curcumin (identified in pharmacology as an anti-bacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-yeast, antiallergenic, anti-inflammatory, a powerful antioxidant, antitumor and anticancer) and may be in your kitchen right now.  Curcumin can outperform steroids in their anti-inflammatory properties.  It requires a reduction of 60 parts of turmeric to get one part of curcumin.  Then 20 parts of curcumin are reduced to one very powerful and effective curcuminoid which is the most powerful and active ingredient for chronic and acute pain relief.  Curcumin is thought to be an even better anti-inflammatory than cortisone (one of the most powerful steroids).

The most powerful formula combines curcumin, curcuminoids, boswellia, DLPA and ginger and is extremely effective in improving joint structure and function.  Recently scientists in India isolated a subparticle of curcumin known as curcuminoid which is 100 times as potent as curcumin in reducing pain and inflammation.  The article stated that researchers at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, TX stated that curcumin in laboratory studies was as if not more effective than any cancer treatment drug they have seen from any pharmacutical company.  The combination of DLPA and boswellia can enhance the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin. DLPA is an amino acid found in all common proteins consumed on a daily basis.  It has the ability to help us maintain higher levels of serotonin (the brains “feel good” hormone.  DLPA can also lengthen the time released and retained in the bloodstream.  This can be significant for mood elevation and depression.  Terry, the author, has researched and collected over 2000 abstracts of various studies of curcumin.  In one double-blind study he found, curcumin matched cortisone as a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory.
