Chronic Inflammation – Too Much of a Good Thing
Inflammation is a vital part of the immune system’s response to injury and infection. However, when the inflammatory response goes on too long or shows up where it’s not needed, it can become problematic. This type of inflammation – called chronic low-level inflammation – has been linked health conditions including heart disease, certain types of cancer, cardio-respiratory disease, diabetes, and obesity.
In this engaging, evidence-based webinar, you will learn relevant research related to the causes of low-level chronic inflammation and how lifestyle choices such as nutrition, movement, sleep, and reframing stress can protect us from this type of “inflammation gone awry.” Walk away with an action plan of 1-2 changes you can make in your daily life to minimize your risk of low-level chronic inflammation and improve your health and well-being.
