Inflammation can trigger many health issues such as anxiety, cancer, and even heart diseases. It is the body’s way of self-protection by removing the harmful stimuli like damaged cells, irritants, or pathogens and to support the healing process. It is like a defence mechanism in the body – a biological reaction when something harmful affects the body. Redness, heat, swelling, pain and loss of function are some of the signs of acute inflammation.
Of course! This condition requires medical assistance. If you think you have done everything you can to improve the condition and want to know if the efforts you have put in have been worth it, then you have come to the right place. Here are 7 signs that you have successfully kicked the problem of inflammation in the curb:
If constipation, bloating and gas aren’t your enemies anymore and you have normal bowel movements (at least 2 a day), this means that your gut is balanced – meaning your inflammation levels are on the right track and you need not worry about gut problems anymore.
Acne, rashes and eczema are some of the other signs of inflammation that shows on the skin. These breakouts happen when inflammation rises to the skin. Having a clear skin is a sign that inflammation is no longer a threat to you.
Inflammation can have a bad impact on your hormones and hamper your metabolism. This can lead to weight gain and it can become even harder to lose those extra kilos.

Inflammation causes the joints and muscles to become stiff and painful. But if you don’t experience any such pain then it means that your inflammation levels are in control.
If you often get sick, it’s likely because of a weak immune system due to inflammation. You become prone to more diseases when your gut is out of balance (which is basically 75% of the immune system).
Being busy all the time and exhausted might seem normal these days but it definitely isn’t. Inflammation can a take a toll on your cortisol levels and lead to adrenal fatigue, which means that you will feel tired all the time. When inflammation alleviates, you might not experience this and you will feel energetic all day long.
Unbalanced glucose levels trigger inflammation as well as diabetes. Glucose is what helps the body run and insulin helps to push glucose into the body. Inflammation causes an overload of blood sugar, which means more inflammation. Low inflammation allows the glucose levels to be normal.
