Inflammation is your body’s response to injury or illness. It’s how your body heals itself.
You cut your thumb, and the area around it gets red and inflamed. Eventually, the inflammatory response does its job, and things heal. That’s normal and healthy inflammation.
Chronic inflammation is something else altogether, and not healthy at all.
Chronic inflammation happens when the immune system is trying and failing to fight off infection. Or, when the immune system becomes confused and starts to attack parts of the body it shouldn’t.
When the immune system senses that something just isn’t right, but doesn’t know quite how to fix things, it can cause more harm than good.
