Inflammation is part of the body’s defense mechanism and plays a role in the healing process. When the body detects an intruder, it launches a biological response to try to remove it. The attacker could be a foreign body, such as a thorn, an irritant, or a pathogen. Pathogens include bacteria, viruses, and other organisms, which cause infections.but stress or toxins in the body can also cause inflammation.
There are two main types of inflammation: acute and chronic.
Acute inflammation is usually related to an injury or illness due to an invader.
There are five key signs of acute inflammation:
- Pain: This may occur continuously or only when a person touches the affected area.
- Redness: This happens because of an increase in the blood supply to the capillaries in the area.
- Loss of function: There may be difficulty moving a joint, breathing, sensing smell, and so on.
- Swelling: A condition call edema can develop if fluid builds up.
- Heat: Increased blood flow may leave the affected area warm to the touch.
But these signs are not always present. Sometimes inflammation is “silent,” without symptoms. A person may also feel tired, generally unwell, and have a fever. Symptoms of acute inflammation last a few days. Subacute inflammation lasts 2–6 weeks
Chronic inflammation can continue for months or years. It either has or may have links to various diseases, such as:
- cardiovascular disease (CVD)
- arthritis and other joint diseases
- chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- rheumatoid arthritis
The symptoms will depend on the disease, but they may include pain and fatigue.
Very often, toxins and heavy metals in the body create a toxic load on the immune system resulting in a chronic inflammatory state which manifests in various forms in the body from chronic fatigue, to brain fog, headaches, body pains, fibromyalgia, MS, anxiety, depression, Parkinsons and Dementia, to name a few.
Establishing the root cause of any condition is key to the treatment approach that will be taken. If for example the origin of the inflammation in the joints for e.g. stems from inflammation in the oral cavity, then thr treatment required is to treat or eliminate the source of the oral inflammation/infection, before embarking on treating the joint disease.
One general approach is treating inflammation using TS: There are always 3 stages of inflammation:
1st stage: ANY injuries/ inflammation/ infection (viral or burns)/ fevers up to 38.9 degrees.
An ‘irritant’ causes the existing iron to suffer, leading to dilation of blood vessels with hyperthermia at the site.
TS #4 FerrPhos heals the irritant hyperthermia reaction
2nd stage: fevers longer than 24h/ higher than 38.9 degrees
TS #5 KaliMur (Potassium Chloride) is required to transform inflammatory toxins into harmless substances by filling the with hydrogen atoms. Dissolved Fibrous material (containing the toxins) is released by cells and forced to excretion.
3rd stage: The recovery stage. But not all diseases progress to this necessarily, if stages 1 and 2 were administered properly.
TS #7 KaliSulph (Potassium Sulph) assists liver in discharging toxins and waste matter. If necessary, the body can take the mineral from the skin (epidermal and epithelial cells) leaving flaky dry skin.
TS #3 CalcSulph can be used for chronic long term inflammation problems to assist excretion.
TS #6 KaliPhos (Potassium Phos) has antiseptic effect in cases of fever above 39 degrees, as it prevents/ treat tissue decomposing.
