Inflammation is at the heart of many illnesses.
It is a significant factor in Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes, Depression, Endometriosis, Heart disease, Asthma, Crohn's, Psoriasis, Multiple Sclerosis, Fatty Liver disease and some cancers.
Sometimes it is obvious, because your joints feel as if they are "on fire". The joints in your hands and knees are painful and you may have difficulty going up and down stairs or kneeling down and getting up again.
Your doctor will often prescribe "Anti-Inflammatory" drugs, which may take away the pain but are not a long-term solution. Sometimes these contain Steroids and may cause you to put on weight
There is a natural long-term solution which you may like to try. This involves increasing your Omega-3, reducing your Omega-6 and increasing your Vitamin D
Sometimes the Inflammation is not so obvious, so it may be worth doing a test to find out
There is a simple blood test for Inflammation, which you can easily do at home
Prick your finger to put a little blood on a test strip and send it away for analysis
The test report gives details of all 26 Fatty Acids, and then focuses on 2 significant factors
Factor Target Comment
Omega-3 Index >8% Is my Omega-3 high enough ? ( Relevant for heart disease )
Omega-6/3 Ratio <3:1 Is my Omega-6 low enough to reduce my Inflammation ?
The reports also gives advice about diet and lifestyle changes that can improve these results within 3 months
This test has been done thousands of times and has been shown to be very effective for Rheumatoid Arthritis and Endometriosis - plus other conditions like Asthma & Atrial Fibrillation.
Here is a Presentation about this and you can see a short video on YouTube
