Why Our Body’s Has Inflammation; What Causes Inflammation

Why Our Body’s Has Inflammation and What Causes Inflammation

Chronic Inflammation, Relapsing Polychondritis is an inflammatory disease that I deal with daily. Relapsing Polychondritis is an  inflammatory disease that affects cartilage. Cartilage is flexible strong tissue that gives form and support to part of your body. The inflammation of cartilage can lead to the neurosis of the cartilage. Each day I take supplements such; Turmeric, Garlic and Oregano Oil to help control my body’s inflammation.

The medical community does not know what triggered my Relapsing Polychondritis. But, I thought I would share how the body normally handles inflammation from a wound and what causes inflammation at the wound site.

  • Bacteria and other pathogens enter wound.
  • Platelets from blood release blood-clotting proteins at wound site.
  • Mast cells secrete factors that mediate vasodilation and vascular constriction. Delivery of blood, plasma, and cells to injured area increases.
  • Neuthrophils secrete factors that kill and degrade pathogens.
  • Neuthrophilis and macrophages remove pathogen by phagocytosis.
  • Macrophages secrete hormones called cytokines that attract immune system cells to the site and activate cells involved in tissue paper.
  • Inflammatory response continues until the foreign material is eliminated and the wound is repaired.
