At Natmed, Naturopath Perth, we have some frequently asked questions about Inflammation…

Why is pain associated with inflammation?
What is the average age of getting arthritis?
And How does inflammation occur in the body?

Inflammation can be both a cause and consequence of many conditions and is frequently characterised by pain, heat and swelling of the affected area. Joint pain is a common inflammatory symptom seen in arthritic and osteoarthritic patients. Inflammation may also be associated with toxicity and oxidative stress. At NatMed, Naturopath Perth, we offer in-house testing for said toxicity, inflammation, and swelling within the body. Our Naturopaths can use these test results to create a treatment program for you to improve your inner health, reducing inflamation as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Controlling chronic inflammation can have positive outcomes on a variety of factors such as …

  • Digestive health
  • Improved mobility
  • Reducing pain caused by mild arthritis
  • Improved health and vitality

However if the inflammation goes on too long and doesn’t resolve and can’t heal properly then the process of inflammation produces chemicals that lead it only to pain, but also to tissue damage and disease.

A startling confirmation of how important the control and resolution of inflammation is in the treatment of disease, is the enormous numbers of anti-inflammatory drugs being used in Australia. While they can be immensely effective in alleviating pain in the short term, many, if not most, of these drugs can produce undesirable effects in the long term.
