Inflammation seems to be an enemy that needs to be suppressed all the time and at all costs. At least when we look at a TV commercial that is the impression we get. But is it all that bad?

 

Inflammation is in fact our innate defense mechanism that protects our body from outside invaders. In fact without inflammation injuries and infections would not heal. Cats, dogs and other animals also have it. It protects our body!

So why is it then regarded as enemy? To me the answer is simple: inflammation comes with pain, and we want to get rid of pain as soon as possible. But the price to pay is that the healing of tissue injuries (the reason behind pain) will not take place. If inflammation is continuously suppressed, the injured tissues will remain in their injured state indefinitely. That is exactly why certain topical creams and other treatments need to repeated endlessly.

The solution is to support inflammation so that it can take its course. It may take some time and effort, but at the end original cell structure and function restored and no more treatments are required (unless another injury triggers it).

I am not suggesting that it is the solution for every case, but I believe that in case of injuries of muscles, tendons, ligaments, rhumatoid arthritis it is possible to restore injured tissues with repeated treatments.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
