Chronic low grade inflammmation leads to premature aging

Coined it in 2006 by Italian scientists, inflamm-aging describes a progressive degeneration of the body and mind caused by low grade chronic inflammation.

Chronic low grade inflammation is caused by many factors such as air pollution, EMF radiation (Cell phones, Wi-Fi, medical screenings etc.), poor diet, emotional stress (worry is terrible), poor sleep, physical inactivity, genetics, lack of anti-cancer nutrients in our diet, and toxins in food.

It has been associated with many chronic diseases such as cancer, autoimmune, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, irritable bowel, eczema, anemia, dementia, allergies and kidney failure.

You can minimize the impact of chronic low grade inflammation via the 7 areas listed in my 7 Sacred Letters of Wellness (see book From Leaf to Life).

Among them are the use of anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory herbs such as Emblica officinalis as in the product Phytolec™ (view website and constant connection with nature.

One of the most effective ways (and is free) to reduce inflammation is dew treading (read page 217 of From Leaf to Life). Walk into a grassy area in the early morning. Walk barefooted or let your feet rest on the wet grass for at least 30 minutes. You may sit on a chair and let your feet rest on the earth. You will notice a difference in your energy and mood. This is also useful for overcoming jet lag, anxiety and depression.
