Is Inflammation Making You Sick?
It’s not something you can see or feel, yet it can quietly simmer inside your body for years.

When it does eventually appear, you probably won’t make the connection between this insidious condition and the diagnoses of heart disease, diabetes or cancer.

The “it” is inflammation, the body’s natural response against injury and infection.

When the inflammatory response functions as it should, it helps to heal. But if it gets out of control, it can wreak widespread havoc on your health.

Health expert Cheryl Myers joins Dr. Jeff to discuss the many ways low-level inflammation can undermine good health and the easy things you can do to keep this invisible threat in check.
