What causes inflammation?
As food passes through your digestive system your body has a classification system. Your body classifies by an inflammatory effect. The foods are either foods that cause inflammation or the foods that quiet inflammation. Inflammation causes a chemical reaction that happens in the blood stream, and contributes to weight gain. Inflammation can be caused by allergies to food, the way your liver responds to saturated and trans fats, as well as toxins and stress. These inflammatory responses can cause hypertension, high cholesterol, and insulin resistance, which in turn, might lead to heart disease. When there is inflammation, your intestines contract too much, which causes stimulation of the bowel, which in turn causes pain. When your intestines lack enzymes, in order to metabolize foods such as; milk, grains, or beans, the food remains undigested, the intestines constrict and create gas. Lactose intolerance is one such inflammatory result, and as well, allergy to gluten from wheat is another, which also produces a lot of gas. Problems result, like irritable bowel syndrome which, may cause diarrhoea and/or abdominal pain.
Certain foods can cause inflammation of your intestinal wall. Foods that don't agree with your bodies sensibilities are seen as foreign invaders, which in turn causes inflammation in your blood stream, and it is like having a chronic infection, that triggers an immune response. This response causes inflammation. Inflammation prevents glucose from getting into your brain cells, so that they can function, and when the inflammation intercedes in this process, you end up wanting more glucose. So, you eat more and more sugar. Yet, the eating of more sugar increases inflammation.
Weight loss is important and decreasing our bodies inflammatory response is also important. There is a specific genetic component to inflammation, and so, some of us are more inclined to inflammatory responses based on specific food intake than others of us. The process of gaining weight is often a process of inflammation, so when you decrease your bodies inflammatory response, you will also decrease your weight. The more inflammation you have, the worse you feel, and in order to offset those feelings, the more bad foods you eat in order to feel better.
Obesity is due to inflammation, because it stresses your body and also fattens. Inflammation occurs in your small intestine, momentum, and liver. Your small intestine functions as your second brain, and actually contains more neurons than any organ but your brain, as well as experiencing the most range of emotions, manifesting in the form of gastro intestinal destress, reacting to foods, depending on their inflammatory effect. These foods in your small intestine can either create; mild annoyance like a little bloating, anger, represented by gas, stubbornness, which is represented by constipation, or temper tantrums, represented by diarrhoea. You need to listen to your intestines because, they do a critical job of digesting your food and your digestion helps guide you in the decisions you need to make about eating. The results of which, tells you which foods agree with you and which foods don’t.
Your intestines have the job of observing the foods you eat, but if your intestine can’t absorb the foods your eat, your stomach becomes upset. If you end up feeling groggy or you have less energy after you eat, it could be because your intestines are giving you a message.
