The presence of inflammation is what opens the door to most chronic disease.  It can and often does occur for years before it exists at levels sufficient to be apparent or clinically significant.

More than half of Americans suffer from chronic or recurrent pain, and nearly half (46 percent) of poll takers reported pain in the last two weeks.  Is it any wonder that chronic disease is such a big issue?  Inflammation is now recognized as an overwhelming burden to the healthcare status of our population and the underlying basis of a significant number of diseases.

How long it has been smoldering really determines the degree of severity of a disease and often the prognosis assuming the inflammation can be controlled. One could also argue that without inflammation most disease would not even exist.

Take a look at this list of diseases and their relationship with inflammation:

Disease Mechanism
Allergy 4 Immune Mediated Types + Sensitivities, all of which cause inflammation
Alzheimer’s Chronic inflammation destroys brain cells
Anemia Inflammatory cytokines attack erythropoietin production
Ankylosing Spondylitis Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against joint surfaces
Asthma Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against airway lining
Autism Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions in the brain arresting right hemisphere development
Arthritis Inflammatory cytokines destroy joint cartilage and synovial fluid
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Chronic inflammation causes excessive muscle tension shortening tendons in the forearm and wrist compressing the nerves.
Celiac Chronic immune mediated inflammation damages intestinal lining
Crohn’s Disease Chronic immune mediated inflammation damages intestinal lining
Congestive heart failure Chronic inflammation contributes to heart muscle wasting
Eczema Chronic inflammation of the gut and liver with poor detoxification and often antibodies against Transglutaminase-3.
Fibromyalgia Inflamed connective tissue often food allergy related and exacerbated by secondary nutritional and neurological imbalances.
Fibrosis Inflammatory cytokines attack traumatized tissue
Gall Bladder Disease Inflammation of the bile duct or excess cholesterol produced in response to gut inflammation
GERD Inflammation of the esophagus and digestive tract nearly always food sensitivity and pH driven
Guillain-Barre Autoimmune attack of the nervous system often triggered by autoimmune response to external stressors such as vaccinations.
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Autoimmune reaction originating in the gut triggered by antibodies against thyroid enzymes and proteins
Heart attack Chronic inflammation contributes to coronary atherosclerosis
Kidney failure Inflammatory cytokines restrict circulation and damage nephrons and tubules in the kidneys
Lupus Inflammatory cytokines induce an autoimmune attack against connective tissue
Multiple Sclerosis Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against myelin
Neuropathy Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against myelin and vascular and connective tissues which irritate nerves.
Pancreatitis Inflammatory cytokines induce pancreatic cell injury
Psoriasis Chronic inflammation of the gut and liver with poor detoxification
Polymyalgia Rheumatica Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against muscles and connective tissue
Rheumatoid Arthritis Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against joints
Scleroderma Inflammatory cytokines induce an autoimmune attack against connective tissue
Stroke Chronic inflammation promoted thromboembolic events
Surgical complications Inflammatory cytokines (often pre-dating the surgery) slow or prevent healing

It is now widely believed that chronic inflammation that goes undetected for years is the underlying cause of many dreaded illnesses such as type II diabetes, heart disease, stroke, some cancers (e.g. colon cancer), neurological diseases (e.g. Alzheimer’s and dementia), autoimmune diseases (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis), inflammatory bowel diseases (e.g. Crohn’s disease), as well as other diseases which have unknown causes, like allergies, fibromyalgia and migraines.

Emerging science continues to show the need for reducing the amount of inflammation in our bodies to protect against disease. In fact, those not even dealing with the everyday aches and pains associated with growing older should heed this research as a wake up call and control inflammation before it does any damage.

The solution to relieving inflammation can be found in a brilliant yellow spice common in Indian cuisine that you can find in any grocery store.  This spice is Turmeric, which has been used for centuries to treat wounds, infections, colds, and liver disease.  Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.  Regular curcumin is absorbed at approximately 5-10%, the balance remains in the gastrointestinal tract and is lost.  Liposomalized curcumin is absorbed at substaintially higher rate.

Please consider including the most highly bioavailable form of curcumin on the market today. Delivered in a liposomal delivery system, our Liposomal Curcuminis 2,000% more effective than ordinary forms of curcumin.

I started using Relevit around 10 years ago.  It helps with my arthritis and is easy to take.  I bought all kinds of curcumin from all sorts of shops, none worked at all.  Not sure what is in this, (yes, it’s listed) but whatever it is works great.  – Juanita from Texas

  1. I am looking for a drink that used to come in a small can. It didn’t taste very good but the energy and health benefits were huge. I was always told it was used for Cancer patients after having therapy to help restore their body. I purchased it from EcoQuest years ago. My husband has lost nearly 100 lbs and cannot seem to keep food down. Now he’s having trouble chewing. We’ve had all the test for nearly a year and no closer to an answer. I thought this drink might help keep his strength up.
