At ACNC, we speak to our patients constantly about limiting inflammation in the diet, lifestyle, physical and mental capacity.
Inflammation has long been understood to have ill effects on the body, especially when talking about chronic health problems. Identifying the source of the inflammation is a big piece of the puzzle in our office, and if unaddressed has high correlations with diabetes and obesity (coined diabesity) in this excerpt from Chris Kresser, MS, LAc.

“Inflammation has been shown to precede the development of diabesity. Elevated levels of inflammatory cytokines predict future weight gain, and infusion of inflammatory cytokines into healthy, normal weight mice causes insulin resistance.”

“Inflammation begins in the fat cells themselves. Fat cells are the first to be affected by the development of obesity. As fat mass expands, inflammation increases. One mechanism for this may be dysfunction of the mitochondria (the “power plant” of our cells) caused by the additional stress obesity places on cellular function. Another mechanism may be oxidative stress. As more glucose is delivered to the fat cells, they produce an excess of reactive oxygen species (ROS) which in turn starts an inflammatory cascade within the cell.
