Infection and inflammation – the double edged sword

The role of chronic infection as a key driver of the inflammatory aspects of ill health in the body is understood by the healthcare community at large and often treated with powerful, broad spectrum antimicrobials. However, the balance of gut microbiota and their role in correct cutaneous immune function is less well understood. Appreciating the association between the robust immune system and a positive balance of microbes may provide an answer to healthy function of the body. Evidence is also emerging of the impact of chronic infection as a driver of not only acute inflammation, but also autoimmune disease. Assessing and addressing the internal causes will increase the likelihood of success without harmful consequences. Come in and see the Naturopath at A Natural Self, A Naturopathy Clinic:
