Infections and Inflammations




Definition

An infection is the condition of multiplication of parasitic organisms or microorganisms within the body. An inflammation is the reactions that occur in the affected blood vessels and adjacent tissues in response to an injury or abnormal stimulation caused by a physical, chemical, or biologic agent. Many people use the terms interchangeably since they have several symptoms in common and usually are treated similarly.


Causes

Infection is caused by the invasion of bacteria, etc. and can be recognized by fever, pain, redness, swelling, heat (or warmth), general malaise, increased white count in the blood, and needs professional diagnosis and treatment. Inflammations symptoms are: redness, heat (or warmth), swelling, and may or may not have loss of function in the area.


Treatment

Eat 75% raw foods, drink herb teas and juices, avoid colas, sugar, junk foods, and white flour products. Relieve symptoms as much as possible with positioning, hear or ice, take medication and nutritional supplements. Get plenty of rest. See your doctor for diagnosis and medical treatment.


Nutrients

Vitamin C plus biofavonoids, 3,000-6,000 mg. in divided doses during the day, is essential to healing and reducing swelling. Proteolytic enzymes, 4 tablets between meals and at bedtime for 4 weeks, helps in controlling inflammation. Zinc, 50 mg. per day, helps promote healing.
