Inflammation is your immune system‘s reaction to the environment. When substances, toxins, chemicals, irritants, pathogens, or anything else that the immune system does not recognize appear, it attacks with inflammatory cytokines, and sets off an alarm to send many more types of immune cells — similar to calling at 911 into a police station. The key here is the environment. What environment are you making on a cellular level? That will determine if your immune system becomes overreactive or burned out and under-reactive, which is the premise for cancer and chronic infections to live in your body. Living the Seven Basic Steps to Total Health will make an environment that normalizes your immune system. You will learn more about this in the lessons: Seven Basic Steps to Total Health and Going Deeper in the Seven Basic Steps to Total Health.
