Inflammation is a natural and essential part of our body’s efforts to heal from viruses, infections, and injuries by working to repair damaged tissue. However, inflammation can quickly get out of control to a point where it lasts 24/7 – a long time after the threat passes.
This chronic inflammation is anything but natural and has been linked to almost all modern health problems including autoimmune conditions, heart disease, and even brain fog and weight gain. The goal of functional medicine is to discover the underlying cause of these ongoing health problems and make lifestyle adjustments to restore the body’s inherent ability to heal itself naturally, often without the need for pharmaceutical medications or surgeries.
There can be many reasons why inflammation is out of control in the first place but the most common reasons are:
1. Methylation gene impairments
Methylation is your body’s biochemical process of maintaining a healthy gut and brain, protecting our DNA, and controlling our ability to properly detox. Genetic mutations, which close to 40% of the population have, can inhibit your body’s ability to down-regulate inflammation.
2. Gut dysfunctions
3. Viral infections
Low-grade viral infections also fuel inflammation.
When inflammation is concerned we aim to correct these issues with lifestyle and dietary changes. But years of inflammation can require some additional support. This is where we turn to natural medicines, one of which is curcumin.
Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric responsible for giving it the bright yellow hue. The research centered around curcumin is unparalleled in linking this compounds ability to drastically help decrease inflammation among numerous inflammation-based health conditions including:
- Autoimmune conditions
- Brain fog
- Candida overgrowth
- Erectile dysfunction
- Gallbladder issues
- Viral infections
- Weight loss resistance
As you can see, this compound is not one to be overlooked when trying to win the fight against inflammation. For this reason I personally curated The Curcumin with pure turmeric extract to optimize bioavailability and drive-down inflammation levels from the inside out by providing antioxidant and cell-protective activity, joint support, and modulation of the production of inflammatory cytokines. This powerful formula is designed to work synergistically with the entirety of The Collection to help restore your body’s natural state of being.
