C-reactive Protein (CRP) and Inflammation

By Yollo Wellness –

C-reactive ProteinInflammation is part of the complex biological response of vascular tissues to harmful stimuli, such as pathogens, damaged cells, or irritants. Inflammation is the way your body responds to a problem. Whether battling an infection or cancer, or healing from a bone fracture, your body needs to deliver powerful immune and repair cells to the impaired location through your bloodstream in order to fight and fix the problem. Inflammation is really designed to be an acute process that gets in and out quickly.

The longer the immune and repair cells stay in a location, the greater the chance they’ll cause damage to surrounding healthy cells and tissues. Inflammation is part of a healthy immune response.  The process becomes an orchestrated push of cells and chemicals that are on a mission to heal injuries, fight infection, redness, pain and swelling.

What is C-reactive protein?
Most people do not even know they have inflammation.  A  blood test that is available and measures an inflammatory marker called C-reactive protein is currently recommended because elevated levels of CRP signals increased risk for many chronic inflammation-related disorders, including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and more.

Research shows that people who attained the lowest levels of C-reactive protein had significantly reduced rates of heart attack.

The studies also showed that reducing C-reactive protein (CRP) levels alone cuts heart attack risk and slows the progression of atherosclerosis. For this reason, the researchers recommend testing CRP and lowering it.  As coronary arteries narrow,  there is an increase of CRP in your blood.

A CRP test is not able to tell your doctor exactly where the inflammation is but can alert the doctor that inflammation is present. It is possible that a high CRP level could mean there is inflammation somewhere in your body other than your heart.

What You Eat Influences Chronic Inflammation:
One of the best ways to control inflammation is to know what you can digest. Some foods can actually cause inflammation even though they may seem “healthy and clean”.

The ALCAT Test offered at YOLLO Wellness identifies foods that trigger Non-Allergic mechanisms to activate and induce the release of inflammatory mediators common in many chronic conditions where the symptom onset is not immediate. This delayed food sensitivity and or intolerance is an activation of our immune system.

These immune reactions can be caused by food particles that are small, undigested and then absorbed into the body which is what causes inflammation and awful food allergy/intolerance symptoms. Some of these symptoms are weight gain, skin problems, hormone imbalance and stomach pain.

YOLLO Wellness also offers Digital Infrared Thermo graphic Imaging (DITI) to monitor CRP

DITI can also detect inflammatory thermal patterns along the carotid arteries, which alongside elevated C – Reactive Protein levels in the blood confirms the presence of an internal inflammatory process. It is the only diagnostic tool that can show a visual of C-reactive proteins.

DITI is a non-invasive  thermal imaging  system which is a test of physiology that relies on the sympathetic nerve control of skin blood flow and the ability of the sympathetic system to respond and react to pathology anywhere in the body.  Inflammation hidden deep in the body is a common trigger of heart attacks. Early detection is important to lower internal inflammation by changes in lifestyle which includes diets and supplements.

At YOLLO Wellness the certified specialist utilize the highest quality of FDA approved equipment for the most precise results.Their protocols treat the whole person, not just the illness. Call today to schedule your consultation and learn more about how you can control your inflammation and monitor your C-reactive protein levels using DITI and ALCAT inflammation testing. Lowering CRP levels is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle and a host of safe, affordable nutritional supplements may offer immediate help. Dr. Gary Pynckel, located on site also offers chelation, vitamin IV bags and CRP blood test to help lower C-reactive protein levels.
