Inflammation is currently taking over the health and wellness zeitgeist, becoming the holy grail of medicine and science as it can affect all of our anatomical systems and is believed to be ground zero for a wide range of medical conditions. If there is a code to how inflammation translates into illness, then unlocking it will undoubtedly revolutionize how we prevent and cure disease.
But for now, we only know one thing for sure: Inflammation is a precursor to a range of autoimmune, metabolic, and chronic diseases. And dietary acid injury, like that which occurs from acid reflux disease, illuminates this connection. The good news is that both inflammation and acid reflux can be prevented and improved through diet.
