For some time, you might have become concerned about body aches and pains, constant fatigue and insomnia, depression, anxiety or moodiness, gastrointestinal complications like constipation, diarrhea, and acid reflux, frequent infections, or even weight gain.
One or more of these symptoms might have crept up on you. A loved one might even have brought it to your attention. You are at a loss at understanding, let alone explaining what might be going on. However, during a visit to your doctor, you are surprised to learn you might have a condition known as Chronic Inflammation. He even suggests that it might be an idea to get a C-reactive protein (CRP) test which highlights elevated CRP.
Now, as an active person, over your lifetime, you’ve experienced episodes of what is known as Acute Inflammation, typically due to sports injuries. This condition is often painfully noticeable through symptoms such as redness, swelling, or even a part of the body that, to the touch, seems warmer than usual. However, chronic inflammation symptoms are usually more subtle, making them easy to overlook. Chronic inflammation is typically low grade and systemic, constantly engaged, silently damaging tissues and preventing you from reaching various health goals and increasing your risk of disease.
As Dr. Seunggu Han reports on Healthline, several things can cause chronic inflammation, including:
- Untreated causes of acute inflammation, such as an infection or injury.
- An autoimmune disorder, which involves your immune system mistakenly attacking healthy tissue.
- Long-term exposure to irritants, such as industrial chemicals or polluted air.
Keep in mind that these don’t cause chronic inflammation in everyone. Poor diet and lifestyle habits also contribute strongly to chronic inflammation.
While localized acute inflammation can easily and quite rapidly be treated, with the symptoms of chronic inflammation ranging from mild to severe and lasting for several months or years, a broader strategy needs to be adopted.
Step 1: Start Taking Serrapeptase
Even before the results of the CRP test are known, you should order a bottle of Hallelujah Diet® Serrapeptase Capsules. As a natural enzyme which gets into our blood circulation, serrapeptase supports the body by digesting the non-living tissue associated with inflammation. While you are placing your order, don’t forget to take a look at the glowing reviews of the product posted by many happy customers.
Step 2: Clean Up Your Diet
Your doctor may not suggest it, but, in your heart, you know that to kick the inflammation, to lose the weight, to detoxify your system, a dietary change is necessary. By incorporating a plant-based, primarily raw food diet, you will, without doubt, improve your overall health.
While you may have heard of the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet, the Hallelujah Diet takes health to a whole new higher level. This might be the time to embrace the Hallelujah Diet. Don’t know where to start? Check out the Hallelujah Diet®’s Get Started Kit. Of course, there is also a comprehensive collection of great recipe books available on Hallelujah Diet®. As suggested in Medical News Today, good choices for a person following an anti-inflammatory diet include the following:
