Inflammation in body is a human response. It is cellular programming that protects us from infection and foreign body invaders. The invaders can be both biological and chemical.
Inflammation is an essential part of a well-balanced immune system. We are attacked on cellular level by numerous enemy insurgents. They could be bacteria, viruses, or chemical exposures. When an invader attacks the cells, chemicals produced by the white blood cells are released.
When the enemy insurgent attacks the human cell, chemicals from the white blood cells are unleashed. These chemicals may be released into the blood or the affected tissues. Their job is to eliminate the foreign invaders.
Like any good army, they create a bit of havoc in the area where they are doing their job. You can tell when these chemical weapons of the white blood cells are working. There will be redness, tenderness and swelling.
When the white blood cells are doing maneuvers or in active warfare near a joint or nerves, it may cause pain.
This release of chemicals increases the blood flow to the area and may result in redness and warmth. Some of the chemicals cause leakage of fluid into the tissues, resulting in swelling. The inflammatory process may stimulate nerves and cause pain.
Sometimes, like in war, there is collateral damage. This is fancy military speak for innocent casualties. When there is an infection, the body is at war with the insurgent invaders. When this war takes place, the innocent cells sometimes get damaged.
This damage is caused by the white blood cells and their inflammatory chemicals.
Sometimes the defense system of the body becomes like a rogue army. The body’s immune system mistakenly triggers an inflammatory response. The problem is there is no foreign substances to fight off.
In the absence of a disease to fight off, the normally protective immune system attacks the healthy tissue. The army of white blood cells act as if normal tissues are infected or somehow abnormal. This process is called autoimmune disease.
Some of the various types of arthritis are caused by this mistakenly triggered inflammation.
Shoulder tendinitis or bursitis
What are the symptoms of inflammation?
Swelling in the area of redness
Swollen joint that is warm to touch
Loss of joint function
Associated with the inflammatory process may also be these symptoms...
Fatigue/loss of energy
Loss of appetite
Joint Inflammation in Body?
Inflammatory joint disease is a family of diseases that attack the joints. Each has a unique set of typical symptoms. Pain is a common experience of all types. Unattended inflammation will often times leads to joint destruction. Many times the destruction is irreparable.
Health care professionals are knowledgeable about the use of N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) to boost intercellular glutathione as a rescue medicine to detoxify Tylenol overdoses.
One of the recent Nobel Prize winners for Medicine pioneered the research that showed that glutathione is important in maintaining T-cell effectiveness in HIV infected individuals.
What is little known is that the intercellular glutathione our bodies produce is necessary for any other antioxidants to be effective.
Vitamins C and E are dependent on glutathione in order to function at their best.
As covered earlier, inflammation is caused by enemy insurgents inside our body. The warrior white blood cells launch a chemical warfare against the offending invaders. One of the best weapons in this arsenal is glutathione. Not only will it fight the toxic effects of Tylenol, it fights and expels many toxins insulting out body.
Although NAC can help in Tylenol overdose and cystic fibrosis, there are some disadvantages. There are some side effects, some limitations of who and when it can be taken and the effects are short lived. So, although it is an option, there is a better one for arthritis.
The 16th International Congress of Nutrition in Montreal, Canada conducted an open study using a bioactive whey protein with patients having Chronic Hepatitis B, and found significant improvement. hepatitis B is an inflammatory disease of the liver.
In another study concerned with breast cancer, this same bioactive whey protein caused breast cancer cells to stop reproducing. More importantly, it also made the number of cancerous cells wither up and die.
In an in-vivo study with HIV patients, bioactive whey protein was shown to lower viral count dramatically over a six-month period.

The Way to Make More GSH For Free
Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.
Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.
The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.
It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).
And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
