The 4 cardinal signs of inflammation are pain, heat, redness and swelling.
We often see these characteristics in acute skin conditions.
That said, many inflammatory conditions do not show up on the surface of the body. Inflammation also shows up in allergic conditions like asthma and rhinitis where one part of your body is flooded with histamine and swells up in response to a trigger.
Inflammation in the digestive tract is another common ailment of modern society. Stress and unhealthy diets often lead to a compromised digestive system, resulting over time in a weakened immune system and low grade inflammation.
TCM is surprisingly helpful in bringing down inflammation as an alternative to corticosteroids or immunosuppressants.
In addition, TCM possesses an little-known strength in tweaking your immune system so that some of that low grade inflammation goes away.
