The Root of Inflammation
Over-activity of the body as well as the mind causes irritation in the body, which has a multitude of health impacts. It causes the body to feel hotter than it is and increases the heat circulating within.
Inflammation starts in the weakest part of the body, which is normally the digestive system. Stress impacts the gut microbiome by triggering a release of hormones that disrupt the health of the gut. When the gut is not healthy, it impacts the anti-inflammatory responses in our digestive system and throughout the immune system.
108 Health’s Lighten Triphala formula treats digestion and the gastrointestinal tract where the root of inflammation has its beginning.
The Mind-Body Connection of Inflammation
The mind has a powerful ability to impact our bodily response to stress when it comes to inflammation. When our body is producing excess heat mostly because of the over activity of the mind, we need to cool it down through different practices. Practices like meditation or taking different herbal formulas are the primary way we help the body control and heal itself. Also creating a slower routine forces stillness and calmness of the mind, which in turn reduces the over-activity that is causing the symptoms of inflammation.
