Inflammation the underlying cause of disease. Chronic inflammation affects nearly every aspect of your health. As a Naturopathic Practitioner, inflammation is something I take a close look at when implementing treatments and changes necessary for my client to become well. It is unfortunate that in general medical practice that treating the symptom does not effectively treat the underlying cause. To treat a symptom does not lead to supporting to you becoming well again and returning to an Optimal level of health. Looking at the cause of inflammation, treating the underlying causes with Dietary and Lifestyle changes this provides the body with the necessary support to become well.
