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.
  • NuSorb to increase bioavailability: NuSorb 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:

The Low-Sugar Con Part 1: Maltodextrin
The Low-Sugar Con Part 1: Maltodextrin

by Dr. David Minkoff May 21, 2020 4 min read 0 Comments

In today’s highly competitive economy, the new normal is for food manufacturers to use marketing ploys to make their products appear healthy – even when they aren’t.

Maltodextrin is one of the most common, hidden-in-plain-sight cons on the market today. It is glorified, processed sugar that masquerades as “carbs.”

It might sound unbelievable, but read the following quote from BellChem – a top US producer of maltodextrin:

“Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate that can be hundreds of sugar molecules in length, which is much larger than the simple carbohydrate arrangement of glucose. Many soft drinks and other flavored beverages contain maltodextrin in their formulas so that they can have a lower amount of sugar on their nutrition facts labels. On the nutrition label, maltodextrin is included under the “Total Carbohydrate” heading, instead of the “sugars” label.”

The Infantry Battalion that I am fortunate enough to command - 3-187 Infantry, the Iron Rakkasans - conducts an event each Spring called the Iron Warrior Challenge (IWC). 

The IWC can be a single event or a series of events designed to test Soldiers physically and mentally. The purpose of this event is to link the currently serving Soldiers with those who previously served in the unit, and to remember those that have gone before us and all they endured in the service of our Great Nation. The event was started by GEN (retired) David Petraeus when he commanded the Iron Rakkasans in the early 90s, and has continued on ever since.

Food Allergies & Intolerances – The Hidden Source of Your Troubles

According to scientific research, more than half of the American population has one or more allergies, and the reactions range from sneezing to life-threatening anaphylaxis.

Food intolerances are like allergies, but instead of causing an immune response, the adverse effects are due to the body’s inability to digest a specific food.
