Most of us think of inflammation as a symptom associated with an infection or injury. Dr. Nancy Appleton, however, has discovered that it might be more than just a simple reaction to a health disorder. When the body’s tissues are disturbed in some manner, a series of complex reaction takes place, resulting in inflammation. In most cases, when the disorder stops, the tissue returns to its normal healthy state. Sometimes, though, the tissue remains chronically inflammed. Dr.Appleton’s research demonstrates that this condition might be more harmful than ever suspected.
