Inflammation and Immune Response

Inflammation Interferes with the Body’s Immune Response

According to Sarah Varney who writes for Kaiser Health News: “A healthy immune system turns inflammation on and off as needed, calling on white blood cells and sending out proteins to fight infection. Blood tests show that obese people and people with related metabolic risk factors such as high blood pressure and elevated blood sugar levels experience a state of chronic mild inflammation; the inflammation turns on and stays on.” Although scientists are still researching its causes, it seems chronic inflammation interferes with the body’s immune response.

Low-grade inflammation is often observed in the elderly and the obese. This correlates with what has been transpiring with Covid. The most vulnerable are people in those categories and those with underlying conditions. But this does not mean that if you are in these categories you have no hope. You can reduce inflammation and rejuvenate your body.  You can greatly improve your immune response.

Actually, if you suffer from any condition, you’ve got inflammation.  I would highly recommend you get my book The Anti-inflammatory Diet and follow the program.

Vitamin C and Vitamin D3 can also help you reduce inflammation.
