What You Need To Know About Inflammation
It’s an essential part of how your body repairs itself. Inflammation helps protect injuries so they can heal faster without reinjury. Your immune system harnesses inflammation to fight off colds as well.
However, when inflammation gets out of hand and becomes chronic, it can lead to inflammatory diseases and other disorders. Keeping inflammation in check is one of the best ways to enhance your overall well-being, since it can negatively impact every aspect of your health.
4 Common Ways Inflammation Affects Your Body
Overproduction of inflammation can hurt your gut, contributing to diseases like Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Chronic inflammation can hurt your health in the long run. It’s a high-risk factor for heart disease and certain cancers.
Risk Of “Lifestyle” Diseases
Inflammation can also contribute to insulin resistance, making it harder to lose weight, and making it a risk factor for diabetes.
Inflammation can impact every part of your body, resulting in pain that follows you all day. This can harm your mobility and quality of life.
WHAT ARE YOUR NEXT STEPS FOR RELIEVING INFLAMMATION?
AT WELL THEORY, OUR GOAL IS TO HELP YOU CURATE A LIFE LIVED WELL – IN A LASTING, HOLISTIC WAY.
1. Get Adequate Rest Every Day
2. Pay Attention To Your STRESS LEVELS.
3. Change Your Diet.
Throw out processed foods, simple carbohydrates, and sugary snacks. Eat healthy leafy greens that are packed with essential vitamins and nutrients.
4. Get Regular Exercise.
This helps fight inflammation in two ways – first, it makes you stronger and less likely to injure yourself. Second, it floods your body full of anti-inflammatory hormones.
5. Consider Supplementation.
There are many supplements that can help reduce inflammation, like Vitamins C, D, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids. Including these can help fill gaps in your diet, ensuring that your body has everything it needs to ward off stubborn inflammation.
UPDATE YOUR LIFESTYLE & WELLNESS ROUTINES.
IT’S EASY TO GET STUCK IN OLD WAYS OF TREATING PAIN. IT’S TIME TO MAKE ROOM FOR THE NEW WAYS OF HEALING.
Out With The Old
NSAIDS, surgeries, and prescriptions treat the effects of ongoing inflammation – they don’t address what’s usually at the core of the problem.
These are risky, expensive, time-consuming, and often painful options that can have worrying side effects.
Don’t create more issues than you solve – address the cause of your inflammation and your symptoms will follow.
In With The New
Dr. Meredith Warner, orthopedic surgeon and founder of Well Theory, developed the resources and products on our website to put the power of improving your overall wellness in your hands.
At Well Theory, our goal is to provide you with at-home solutions you can try first, before resorting to painful and expensive interventions.
Well Theory: Founded To Support Your Health Goals
Dr. Warner founded Well Theory according to her beliefs about functional medicine, or functional wellness, verses conventional medicine.

Conventional medicine often overlooks holistic, long-term lifestyle changes in favor of prescribing heavy pharmaceuticals, recommending harsh and invasive treatments like surgeries, and more in an attempt to stop pain or disease as it occurs.
Find Wellness Alternatives That Work – For You.
I think we all know that conventional and modern medicine is reactionary and piecemeal, whereas good medicine should be proactive and encompass the whole of you and your body’s systems.
How We Support You On Your Wellness Journey:
Functional healing focuses more on supporting an already healthy lifestyle – or adapting routines to create a healthier way of living – instead of merely responding to illness and injury with treatments designed to only address symptoms.
At Well Theory, we believe that you are ultimately in charge of accomplishing your health goals. We just give you the tools and resources you need to get started towards a path to better overall wellness.
