BodyHealth Inflam-Arrest Usage Guide: Quantity and Consistency Are Key

BodyHealth Inflam-Arrest Usage Guide

Effectively Combat Inflammation

If you suffer chronic inflammation, chances are you’ve tried everything you could think of to make the pain go away.

The usual solutions people turn to include:

  • Over-the-counter drugs to reduce the pain
  • Special stretches and exercises
  • Prescription medication
  • Herbal remedies

For most people, these solutions fail to provide consistent, long-term relief.

Medications provide short-term relief, special exercises help to some extent, but herbal remedies or supplements may not have worked as well as you hoped.

Why? You are probably using the herbs incorrectly. For herbal remedies to be effective, they must be high quality, taken in the right doses, and over an extended period. Scientifically speaking, this is because a key benefit of herbal remedies is the epigenetic reconditioning that occurs in your body, which helps repair the underlying causes of the inflammation. For those who don’t know, epigenetics is defined as “relating to or arising from non-genetic influences on gene expression” – in other words, alterations in genes that don’t affect your DNA.

 

Herbal Remedies: A Different Mindset

If you are accustomed to taking medication and experiencing the instant gratification, using an herbal remedy requires a different mindset. The short-term effects are not as intense, but the long-term benefits are fantastic – and herbal remedies don’t come with the many side-effects of medication (more on that later).

In this article, we are going to explain why medication may not be the ideal solution for chronic inflammation and help you understand why and how herbal remedies can work to reduce the symptoms and treat the problem at its source. [1]

 

What is Inflammation?

Inflammation is an acute immune system response in which blood vessels are widened, fluid is rushed to the area, white blood cells are sent, and the temperature is raised to provide an inhospitable environment to foreign invaders.

When your body is working properly, inflammation is a GOOD thing. It is a healing, protective response that helps you recover faster. In most cases, the healing process has a clear-cut beginning, middle, and end, after which your body goes back to normal, with the inflammation subsiding.

Chronic inflammation occurs when your system is stuck in the “middle” and continues the inflammatory response, far beyond the time it is needed. The symptoms and related conditions of chronic inflammation include:

  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic pain
  • Persistent weight gain
  • Post-workout pain
  • Digestive problems
  • Brain fog
  • Degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
  • Cardiovascular problems

 

How Herbal Anti-Inflammatories Work

Herbal anti-inflammatories like turmeric, Boswellia (frankincense), and ginger help your body naturally restore balance and control inflammation.

The Science Behind the Short-Term Effects:

These herbs immediately affect two critical compounds your body uses to trigger and mediate inflammation in the body:

  • Cytokines (a group of proteins that trigger and regulate bodily effects such as inflammation)
  • Leukotrienes (biologically active compounds that cause specific cells to begin or continue an inflammatory response)

Chronic inflammation is accompanied by an excess of both cytokines and leukotrienes. These natural remedies work to limit the over-production of these two cell secretions and reduce chronic inflammation and pain.

The Science Behind the Longer-Term Effects

These herbs also help correct epigenetic aberrations that contribute to the state of chronic inflammation. They, quite literally, help to recondition microRNA expression that may have been altered through disease, infection, bacteria, or degenerative disease.

While we would never say that these herbs will cure cancer or any other extreme claim, scientific research supports that they reduce inflammation, and the combination is an excellent addition to a treatment or prevention regimen. [2,3,4,5,6]

 

Herbal Remedies: Quantity and Quality Matter

One of the big challenges with herbal remedies is their low natural bioavailability when ingested orally. Furthermore, many supplements promote that they contain Boswellia, ginger, and turmeric – but careful examination of the formulas often reveals poor-quality ingredients and limited results.

We solved these problems in Inflam-Arrest:

  • Organic, wild-crafted ingredients: The Boswellia, ginger, and turmeric in Inflam-Arrest are either entirely organic or wild-crafted, giving them top-level effectiveness once in your body.
  • Bioperine to increase bioavailability: Bioperine is a revolutionary delivery system that dramatically enhances the bioavailability of supplements – meaning your body will USE the herbs instead of flushing them out through your digestive system.

But, the subject of quantity remains. For these herbs to be truly effective, you must provide your body with an ongoing supply of the super-charged bioactive ingredients. It is not a one-off solution like medication, but over time, it can help restore healthy function to your immune system. [7]

To make it easy, we have created a basic guide to taking Inflam-Arrest:

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. Dr Minkoff is one of the most in demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein. The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness. Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 43 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teachers to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.

If there is anything society has come to realize over the last century, it is that women are just as powerful, smart, ambitious, and capable as men. And while society as a whole is still catching up as far as true equality, the facts are evident when you look at some of the most incredible and influential people today.

When it comes to fitness, however, men and women are not the same. The natural, physiological differences necessitate unique approaches to achieve optimal results. While the fundamental science behind attaining a shredded, lean physique is basically the same for both sexes, the exact steps and application require careful consideration.

Healing Our Achilles Heels: 5 Step Healing Protocol

One thing I've learned is that injuries can be great teachers. There are so many lessons to be learned from the injuries we experience. They force us to slow down and evaluate our bodies on a deeper level. Like many, I'm guilty of sometimes taking my healthy days for granted. When we pick up an injury, we're suddenly motivated to learn everything we can about that specific injury. We're also dedicated to the necessary rehab it will take to overcome the injury and strengthen our weak areas.

As with many injuries, I've learned there are no "quick fixes" for my stubborn Achilles. Over the years, I've also learned there are no "get fit quickly" schemes.
