Inflammation 101

Inflammation 101By Dr. Daoshing Ni

Thousands of articles have been written about fighting inflammation, so we are likely to assume that inflammation is a bad thing. But what is it exactly, and how can inflammation hurt us?

Inflammation is a natural, normal immune system response to injury and infection. When we sprain our ankle or have a sore throat, get a cut on our knee, or a splinter in our finger, our body signals our immune system to defend us against harmful viruses and bacteria and repair the damage.

Ask Dr. MaoQ: I am getting older and my knees are beginning to stiffen up. Is there a natural way to take care of this inflammation and arthritis?

A: As we age, our joints begin to manifest the wear and tear we have put them through over the years. I recommend you take up tai chi as a regular daily activity; it is a moderate but very energizing exercise. Tai chi comes in many forms, and a daily practice of 30 minutes can help retain the flexibility of the joints, lubricate them, and help strengthen the muscles and tendons surrounding the joints. There are also many herbal and acupuncture remedies in the traditional Chinese Materia Medica (Chinese herbal database), which can be adjunct to support your joints. I suggest consulting a licensed acupuncturist/herbalist to obtain a specific prescription.
