New Year, New You.... no more inflammation!
What is inflammation? Is it just when you hit your knee or twist your ankle? When your body responds and swells up and sends pain signals to your body letting you know that you hurt your knee or ankle? Well that is one way to look at inflammation. Another way is overall body inflammation. Sometimes our body sends signals￼￼, but It might not be as apparent as one specific thing hurting when you hit it or twist it. It may be signals to your immune system which then result in many different possibilities.￼￼
What are some signs of inflammation? It could be skin issues like eczema or psoriasis. It could be the inability to lose weight. ￼It could be gastrointestinal issues such as IBS, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis. It could be brain issues such as ADD, lack of focus, lack of energy, irritability. It could also be pain such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic aching of joints, fatigue. It could also be different diagnoses such as MS, Lymes disease, chronic fatigue… The list goes on and on.

One of the many tools we have in our office is a program called Shape Reclaimed￼￼. It is a miraculous program that is monitored and helps the body get to a normal and less inflamed state.
