Inflammation is part of the body’s innate intelligence, a method by which damage is repaired. Unfortunately when this gets painful, it can be difficult for some people to let the body heal itself unaided so they reach for the drugs. Can’t blame anyone for this – as you have been aggressively marketed to for generations now.
NSAID’s can do the job, they may dull the pain. However, this fast relief comes at a cost.
Raised liver enzymes, diarrhoea, headaches, dizziness, salt and fluid retention and high blood pressure are only a few of the numerous side effects that come with use of NSAID’s.
Gone are the days where prolonged antibiotic use is without healthy scrutiny. Even in allopathic circles, there appears to be hesitation when it comes to prescribing antibiotics unnecessarily.
However, the potential adverse effects that can be tied up with such use are still being revealed. A new study published in the Journal Cell Reports notes a new concern to add to that file.
It is important to have an understanding of the ‘core’ muscles and their function in core stability.
The ‘Core’ muscles develop what we call the powerhouse, essentially consisting of a ‘box’ of muscles. Ensuring correct posture is executed during exercises and movements will assist in strengthening core muscles.
Exercise; specifically core exercises are often a forgotten or misunderstood treatment for lower back pain. These muscles support and brace the spine during movement. Therefore, strengthening them can help to prevent further flare ups and allow distal muscles like the hamstrings, to work more efficiently.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and is characterised by the death of nerve cells, memory loss and reduced cognitive function.
Insulin is responsible for the uptake of glucose into brain cells, so insulin resistance in the brain beaks down the nerve connections required for memory and learning.
Insulin resistance is also associated with damaging levels of inflammation and compounds that are toxic to the nerves within the brain.
Here is how it works.
