On The Other Hand Podcast episode: Dr. David Seaman on Chronic Inflammation and Nutrition

PodcatIs inflammation a good thing or a bad thing? Sometimes, the fact that the body gets inflamed is beneficial – swelling caused by acute inflammation following an injury can help promote healing and fight local infection. It’s an appropriate immune response. But another kind of inflammation, a chronic sort, can occur throughout the body, and over long periods of time may actually increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer. Chronic inflammation is kind of a glitch in the system — a feedback loop gone awry. How do you test for the presence of this chronic inflammation and, if it is present, what should we do about it? Dr. Brett Kinsler presents a new podcast episode of On The Other Hand, in which we hear from Dr. David Seaman, chiropractor, professor at National University of Health Sciences in St Petersburg Fl. and the producer of the website Deflame.com. He’s an expert in the connection between nutrition and chronic inflammation.

    I’ve enjoyed reading Dr. Seaman’s articles specfically on systemic inflammation. I believe this is the challenge we have with certain pts. that don’t improve. Thanks for sharing this interview.

    I will return to this site to see more. I have had scoliosis all my life. It has gotten to the point that the act of standing from a sitting or lying position is dreadfull. I hurt all day and have been told by my primary Dr. that every disc in my back , from neck to tailbone, is either crushed or compressed. I was of course perscribed pain killers & anti inflammation medications to help ease the discomfort.

    But this is the first I ever heard about diet possibly affecting inflammation.
