Inflammation is a Hot Topic

Inflammation is a Hot Topic because it’s like a fire burning internally, and it’s very dangerous for your health.

Inflammation is running rampant in our society. It is the root cause of most health concerns today.

If you have inflammation, you may suffer from a variety of symptoms.

It could be you are unaware of the source of your discomfort or distress, and inflammation may be the culprit. Anything from:

  • autoimmune diseases
  • skin rashes
  • depression
  • arthritis
  • macular degeneration
  • back pain
  • anxiety
  • allergies
  • asthma
  • celiac disease
  • hepatitis
  • irritable bowel disease
  • and much more!

It may be that you’ve tried every form of pain relief that’s out there. You’ve tried yoga, meditation, green drinks, walking in nature, creams, pills, and more, but the truth is you just can’t seem to shake off the pain or symptoms.

Perhaps you’re feeling discouraged and that no matter what, you will suffer from this dis-ease.

You may feel Nothing Works and you are ready to give up.

Not so Fast! There definitely is hope and I can offer you guidance and support as you put out the flames. 

What is your pain costing you?

Over the past year or more have you missed out on opportunities, and events that you would have enjoyed and even benefitted from?


Inflammation took me over. When I was on fire, I enjoyed about 10 percent of my life. I missed out on trips, celebrations, opportunities and spending quality time with my family and friends.


When I was struggling with chronic pain, I felt like I had been hit in the back with the full force with a basketball. I ached everywhere! My back ached, my hands ached, my hips ached, I had crippling migraines, allergies, depression.

My life was a mess due to fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue, osteoarthritis. Two of the many inflammatory conditions that cause chronic pain.

I had a hip brace; a custom thumb splint so I could hold a pen, and every morning in the shower I would do an evaluation, “Is today an aspirin, 222, Tylenol, Advil or NSAID day?” That is just how severe my headaches and body pain was.


My body was a raging inferno of inflammation!

I sought the help of a chiropractor, masseuse, acupuncturist, massage therapist, and more. I did not get the results I needed because I was not addressing the root cause.


For true healing to occur, you must treat the root cause.


Inflammation is responsible for degenerative diseases, and autoimmune conditions which are the biggest cause of death today.


I had no understanding of systemic inflammation. I ate a clean, all-natural diet, I exercised regularly, I meditated, but the pain was chronic, it was real.

 I put out the fire and got the free radical damage under control, and repaired the damage done that I had no more pain, no more headaches, no need for allergy shots or thumb splints or even my braces.


When I discovered the power of anti-oxidants working on a cellular level that my life turned around.


No more chiro, acupuncture, physiotherapy, or painkillers! I was thrilled! But I was also very mystified…just what had happened?


I had addressed the root cause of inflammation. The fire that was raging throughout my body was brought under control.


WebMD defines Inflammation as:

A process by which the body’s white blood cells and substances they produce protect us from infection with foreign organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. … In these diseases, called autoimmune diseases, the body’s normally protective immune system causes damage to its own tissues.

Autoimmune conditions lead to degenerative disease and other chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, and autoimmune diseases such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, psoriasis, arthritis, Crohn’s, arthritis, celiac, acne, rosacea and more, are the plague of our times. These are the leading cause of death today.


Many things trigger inflammation, stress, anxiety, diet, lifestyle, emotions, and so so much more.

The bottom line is that inflammation can be caused or controlled or even disappear by the choices we make.


 Connie’s story

Connie came to me experiencing extreme discomfort throughout the right side of her body. She had pain that ranged from a 6 to a 15 out of 10. She had a frozen shoulder, hip and back pain and she had severe pain in her foot and ankle, which was supported with an orthopedic shoe, and she walked with a cane. Her gait was uneven which led to pain and discomfort in her leg. She was beside herself with pain, fear and overwhelm as she had tried many specialists and surgeries to no avail.


After a thorough intake and assessment, I began Connie’s treatment plan very gently with a pharmaceutical-grade supplement regimen high in anti-oxidants and the perfect balance of vitamins and minerals to reduce inflammation and strengthen her immune system.

She came back two weeks later smiling and feeling so much better. We then proceeded with a full program to address other concerns and before long Connie was good to go. After our work together, Connie continued with the supplements that had turned things around for her and continued to help her maintain a pain-free healthy life. She and her husband began travelling and enjoying life to the fullest.

  1. I am really intrigued that you say inflammation can cause depression, back pain, and anxiety. I sometimes struggle with depression and I struggle with severe anxiety most of the time. I have never heard of USANA HealthPak but it sounds like a great bundle. It’s great that we can save 10% by using your link. 

    At this point, my anxiety and depression get so bad that I am open to trying anything. I will be adding this to my Christmas list for sure. Do you have exact reasoning for how this can help with anxiety/depression? Or would you say pursuing a more active/healthy lifestyle that makes your body feel better will allow for less anxiety/depression?

    • Hi Kara,

      Anxiety and depression can be debilitating and certainly affect your quality of life.  An active lifestyle is helpful although I myself found that when I was deeply anxious and depressed it was tough to be motivated to get out and do it. That’s why I recommend a combination of approaches to the situation. Let me know if I can be of further help as I specialize in Soul Nourishing programs to support concerns like yours. A great step would be the handy and easy to use HealthPak, to support energy, mood and optimal health to get you moving! 

  2. This is so exciting! Inflammation is just so mystifying that it seems one who is cursed by it must live with it forever. Whoever came up with a plan that can alleviate a lifetime of severe suffering must be ecstatic to share the discovery. I am thrilled to know this product exists. I’ve always had health issues of one sort or another. This USANA is something that should get much more publicity. Too many people are suffering without it. Thank you for sharing!

    • Thank so much Cathy! I appreciate your feedback, and yes, inflammation is at epidemic proportions! I’d love to chat with you about this topic and learn more about your health concerns and offer you some strategies to help you. I have some time this week. If you’re interested we can arrange it.  What time zone are you in? 

  3. Hi Nancy – Thanks for the informative post. You are correct on inflammation being a topic many people are talking about these days. I was not aware that inflammation is the root cause of many health issues today. You mentioned that anti-oxidants are a great way to reduce inflammation, I like to drink green tea and I believe it contains anti-oxidants. would you agree that green tea helps reduce inflammation? Besides the supplements, are there other methods that help control inflammation? Thanks. 

    • Yes Jeff, green tea is an anti-oxidant, and fruits and vegetable contain a high amount of anti-oxidants.

      I have found in my professional work that many people with inflammation have damage to their digestive tract, makes them unable to absorb adequate nutrition from their food. This is why supplementing with a powerful highly absorbable anti-oxidant is recommended to protect you from further damage to your cells. My first recommendation is the Usana CellSentials.
