The Vegan Menopause Podcast -- Ep. 12 -- What you need to know about Chronic Inflammation

Updated: Apr 5

You have probably heard people talking about inflammation, but may be wondering what exactly is it?  Reducing chronic inflammation can have huge results on menopause because it can bring about more energy and less fatigue, more mental clarity, slow down the aging process, and lead to better overall health and longevity, and better weight management.

Inflammation is a function of your body trying to heal itself. It's a common, natural, response to injury, pain, illness, and stress. Your survival depends on the role inflammation plays in the body.

Acute inflammation can manifest as redness, heat, pain, and swelling. Without inflammation, injuries would never heal, so this type of inflammation is useful to the body.  It appears suddenly, due to an injury or cold, bee sting, for example, and usually resolves in a few days to a few weeks.

However, the other type of inflammation, chronic low grade inflammation continues to last and does not have a purpose in health.  It damages the body and can be the cause of premature aging, aches and pains, and illnesses including heart disease, cancer, strokes, and Alzheimer's.

Stress, lack of exercise, genetics, exposure to toxins and diet can all contribute to chronic inflammation. 

In this episode, you will learn:

-how chronic inflammation affects the bodily systems

-lifestyle tips to reduce chronic inflammation

-some of the best foods and supplements to add to your diet to help with inflammation.
