Heart Problems and Inflammation


“Living a healthy lifestyle will only deprive you of poor health, lethargy, and fat."
Jill Johnson

Dr. Dwight Lundell states that without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped. Inflammation is your body’s natural defense to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process, a chronic inflammation occurs. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.

The recommended mainstream diet that is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates causes repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity. What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? They are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.
