Prevent Scariest Diseases Of Our Time

Woman Holding Her Stomach in Pain

Everybody poops and every parent have used this story to tell their children when it comes to using the bathroom. Even so, what happens in the bathroom should be our own business. Nobody wants to hear about some else's bowel movement and the majority don't feel like sharing such information anyway.

If we feel like a flu is setting in or we've already caught it, we would normally share all the symptoms we're experiencing to our family and friends so that we can get some advice regarding treatments or just needed some old fashion sympathy.

But if ever when we're painfully constipated or experiencing a worse case of diarrhea, we would normally come up with some lame excuse about our behavior and just keep our suffering to ourselves. We don't like to tell anyone what's happening to our gut, pretend that everything is alright, and just keep it out of our minds as well.

Unfortunately, ignoring what's happening to our guts can actually mean that we're also overlooking some of the very important symptoms.

People who are suffering from chronic, life-threatening conditions normally share an underlying condition that makes them vulnerable to all sorts of diseases and prevents them from having a recovery which is called an inflammation.

An inflammation could start in the gut and can sometimes manifest itself as a digestive upset before other symptoms start to pop up. This is the reason why being concerned about your digestive health could help prevent other serious problems from happening.

If you're regularly suffering from constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, food sensitivities, or abdominal cramping, then you might be having a condition known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) which can often be accompanied by a chronic body wide inflammation.

This condition is triggered by several factors such as allergies, stress, pathogenic infections, food sensitivities, pathogen infections, and ingestion of toxins. No matter what caused it, it's crucial that you find out what triggered it and eliminate it right away to avoid the snowball effect of inflammation. The best way to avoid it is to visit your nearest clinic like Absolute Family Chiropractic and get yourself checked.

Frightening Diseases Due To Inflammation

If this goes unchecked, an inflammation can be a big threat to your health which will start from the guts then makes its way to your mind and bodies. This will eventually develop into frightening diseases which includes the following:

  • Cancer - An imbalanced immune system can go into overdrive and will allow autoimmune diseases to manifest in our body. Once the immune system becomes unresponsive and sluggish, cancer will start to develop. An inflammation in the digestive tract can predispose into cancer which is a preventable disease that will develop overtime due to decades of poor lifestyle habits. Infections such as H. pylori and hepatitis C will pave the way to inflammation and will cause liver and stomach cancer. Inflammation was also found out as a cause for the development and progression of cancerous tumors.
  • Autoimmune disease - Temporary inflammation is a characteristic of healthy immune response, but once it becomes chronic, the body won't be able to differentiate our own cells from threatening invaders which will then start attacking different organs and tissues. There are hundreds of autoimmune diseases and the thing they all have in common is inflammation. Whether you're suffering from psoriasis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, or type 1 diabetes, the first thing you should do is to locate the source of your inflammation which is not an easy process.
  • Cardiovascular disease - Having high levels of inflammation can make a person be at risk for a stroke or heart attack. Cholesterol buildup in the arteries, known as plaque, can impede the body's circulation which will make the heart work harder to pump oxygen into the brain and other vital organs. Chronic inflammation will trigger the growth of plaque, loosen the plaque from the arterial walls and create formation of blood clots.
  • Mental decline - The powerful connection between the gut and mind of those diagnosed with IBS experiences psychiatric disorders such as major depression, social phobia, panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. An inflammation in the gut can make its way to the bloodstream, crossing the blood-brain barrier and can fuel inflammation in the brain. Once the brain becomes inflamed, we become irritable, forgetful, experience mood swings, and become unable to concentrate. When inflammation affects us for a long time, we become at risk for dreaded disorders of old age, Alzheimer's, dementia, and Parkinson's disease.
  • Type 2 diabetes - There are currently 360 million people from all over the world who are suffering from type 2 diabetes which is a serious health condition that can make someone be at risk for several health complications such as blindness, cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, and loss of limbs. Healthy individuals produce insulin naturally through their liver which is something that is essential in regulating the blood sugar levels. When someone is suffering from chronic inflammation, immune cells will start to invade and disrupt the pancreas' function thus impairing its ability to produce the needed insulin to maintain our functional homeostasis.
  • Hormone imbalance - The gut and endocrine system are closely related and most of the hormones we use daily are produced by the gut. If we're not able to produce enough of these hormones, it will trigger dysbiosis which can cause hormonal imbalance. Women can sometimes suffer from overproducing estrogen which is associated with endometriosis, menopause, fibroids, and PMS. Men on the other hand can become at risk of low testosterone and is accompanied by loss of libido, weight gain, and erectile dysfunction. Men and women are both prone to reproductive cancers when they experience hormonal imbalance. In addition to that, we become chronically inflamed and will make the adrenal glands become fatigued from the constant production of cortisol. This will then cause us to experience dizziness, fatigue, moodiness, trouble losing weight, low sex drive, and cravings for unhealthy foods.

There are many ways that inflammation can be triggered, and it varies from person to person. If you're suffering from a serious inflammatory condition, you need to repair your health as soon as possible before it's too late. You should get to your nearest clinic right away and have your health checked.
