Inflammation is a natural, self-limiting function of the body that is capable of resolving itself in healthy situations. Unresolved, ongoing, chronic inflammation, however, is associated with a variety of health conditions. Diet, physical activity, stress management, and other lifestyle choices can help regulate the phases of inflammation so that the inflammatory process initiates and resolves naturally. Botanical herbs can also have inflammation regulation properties.
