Inflammation & Fighting Fires

| May 28, 2017 | 0 Comments

Inflammation (Latin for “on fire”) can happen anywhere in the body, for the same reasons. As when Firemen show up to fight fires, your immune system always shows up with the same equipment-cytokines. Cytokines are the chemicals produced by your immune cells that cause: fever, swelling, sneezing, pain, diarrhea, body aches, rashes, and other symptoms associated with critter overgrowth. The polio virus does not cause polio. Your immune system cytokine response to a variety of enteroviruses cause the paralysis of poliomyelitis.

Normally, inflammation is good. Cytokines create a toxic environment that either kills critters or allows them to be flushed out with sneezing, coughing, runny nose, diarrhea or vomiting. However, if the immune complex is incompetent, chronic cytokine production can cause damage to normal cells. Think of a SWAT team going into a hostage situation with blindfolds on.

The collateral damage or friendly fire is given a name based on where the inflammation is located. The suffix “itis” is added to an anatomical prefix to designate where the fire fight is. Arthro is the prefix for joints. So, arthritis is inflammation in the joints. Similarly, there can be dermatitis, vasculitis, gastritis, pancreatitis, thyroiditis, etc.

Gastritis happens when there is critter overgrowth and inflammation in the stomach. This inflammation can destroy the lining of the stomach that is usually bulletproof to stomach production of hydrochloric acid. These abrasions are called ulcer. They cause stomach pain and can also cause serious stomach bleeding. Vomiting blood, dark blood in your stool and recurrent pain in the stomach prior to eating are signs of stomach ulcers. A gastroenterologist can confirm the diagnosis with a procedure called endoscopy where a tubed camera is used to visualize your esophagus and stomach.

The critter overgrowth is caused by inadequate production of hydrochloric acid. However, replacing hydrochloric acid when there is an ulcer or even mild gastritis can exacerbate your pain. You must first facilitate the body’s Intelligent Design healing mechanisms. This is done with Fire Fighters.
