Publisher's Summary

When some wound swells up, reddens, and hurts, it may be a sign of inflammation. But generally speaking, inflammation is the response of your body's immune system to an irritant. The offending irritant could be a germ as well as a foreign object like a splinter in your finger. 

This means that an inflammation does not only start when, for example, a wound has been infected by bacteria, isn't healing properly, or is oozing pus. It starts when your body is already battling the harmful irritant. 

Many different factors can cause inflammation. The most common include: 

  • Pathogens like viruses, fungi, or bacteria 
  • External injuries like damage or scrapes through foreign objects. 
  • Effects of radiation or chemicals. 

When a part of your body is inflamed, many different immune cells may be involved. These cells release inflammatory mediators, such as histamine and bradykinin. They cause dilation of the small blood vessels in the tissues, allowing more blood to reach the injured tissues. This explains why inflamed areas turn red and feel hot. 

Just as the title implies, Inflammation Simplified explains briefly, and in simple words, the basics of inflammation in the human body. 

Highlights include: 

  • The inflammation-disease connection 
  • The anti-inflammatory diet plan 
  • Steps to fight the inflammation syndrome 
  • The anti-inflammatory supplement plan 

Your honest reviews, criticisms, and recommendations are welcome. 

Wishing you good health!
