What lifestyle choices you can make to lower chronic inflammation

The predictive power of a cholesterol test is not what it was thought to be

Why you should ask your doctor for a C-Reactive protein blood test

When asked by your doctor; how are you feeling? Most people respond; I feel fine. But are you really fine? Your actual health may not be as good as you think because what’s really going on inside just might tell another story.

Today, organizations like Harvard Medical School, Cleveland Clinic, National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization all agree that chronic inflammation breeds a host of diseases and health conditions.

National Institutes of Health states; chronic inflammation is not a specific disease but a mechanistic process. It is part of the body’s defense mechanism.

Inflammation represents an essential survival mechanism that helps fight off hostile and harmful microbes and pathogens and repairs damaged tissue. Yet there is another side of inflammation that can be harmful rather than helpful when it lingers and attacks healthy cells and tissue. Chronic inflammation we may not be able to feel or see is a dangerous silent killer.

“Most modern people are boiling pots of inflammation: hot, steaming, churning cauldrons of disordered, chaotic inflammatory responses, much of them due to food choices that perform poorly to human dietary needs.”

— William Davis M.D., Cardiologist and Author

Inflammation: What You Need to Know

Experts at Harvard Medical School confirm:

Unchecked chronic inflammation plays a central role in some of the most challenging diseases of our time, including: rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma and even Alzheimer’s.

There are two forms of inflammation

Acute Inflammation

Acute inflammation is a normal and necessary process that allows the body to attack hostile invaders such as bacteria, fungi and other foreign substances anywhere in the body. Acute inflammation often comes on rapidly and subsides once the body has neutralized the threat and healed.

Common conditions that result in acute inflammatory reactions include:

  • A sore throat related to a cold or flu
  • Acute bronchitis
  • Scratches or cuts to the skin
  • Physical injury or trauma

Chronic Inflammation

Unlike acute inflammation, which is short-lived, chronic inflammation can linger, lasting months or even years after the initial threat. Chronic inflammation typically starts as an acute inflammatory response; however, when your body’s healing powers go into overdrive, chronic inflammation can occur. Alternatively, low levels of inflammation may be present even without the presence of an injury or illness. In this case, the immune system launches an attack on healthy cells and tissues.

Detecting Inflammation

The more effective way to test for elevated inflammation is by testing for C-reactive protein (CRP). The liver produces CRP, and levels are measured through a simple blood test. CRP levels will rise in response to inflammation. Other common markers include erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and serum protein electrophoresis (SPE).

Causes of Chronic Inflammation

Inflammation is meant to serve its purpose and then resolve. When it fails to clear up, it begins to deplete the body of vital resources and sets the stage for further illness. Common causes of chronic inflammation include:

  • Untreated causes of acute inflammation, such as an infection or injury
  • Long-term exposure to irritants like polluted air, heavy metals, industrial chemicals and pesticides
  • Autoimmune disorders such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and multiple sclerosis (MS), in which your immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue
  • Many experts also believe that certain lifestyle choices can contribute to chronic inflammation including smoking, chronic stress, alcohol use and obesity

Risk of Lingering Inflammation

As touched on previously, in the last few decades, scientists have found inflammation to be a common factor in many chronic conditions afflicting Western populations. Inflammation is essential for health, but there is another side to this survival mechanism. Lifestyle choices such as diet, activity and sleep habits can all play a role in how chronic inflammation manifests. And it’s fair to say that managing inflammation levels can contribute to health, healing and lifelong well-being.

Cardiovascular Disease

For nearly seven decades, we’ve been told high levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) caused by a diet high in fat puts us at risk for stroke and heart attack. Within the last few years, research has come forward proving that a diet high in good fats has numerous health benefits. Today, medical professionals have validated evidence connecting chronic inflammation with cardiovascular diseases. In fact, Harvard Health Publishing challenges the myth around LDL cholesterol with research indicating that only half of people who suffer heart attacks have high levels of LDL cholesterol.

Insulin Resistance and Diabetes

A malfunctioning immune system plays a role in both type 1 and 2 diabetes. However, type 2 diabetes is more common and occurs when cells become resistant to insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced by cells in the pancreas, which controls the amount of sugar in your blood. Increased insulin resistance can prompt the release of chemicals that lead to inflammation.

Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity

Metabolic overload associated with metabolic syndrome can result in numerous reactions, such as inflammation and oxidative stress. When you gain too much weight, and fat storage cells meet capacity, adipose tissue is no longer able to engulf the incoming fat. This leads to fat being deposited in other organs, mainly the liver. When this happens, the body tries to remove the excess fat by sending macrophages to clear it out, which triggers inflammatory responses, increasing your chances of developing chronic conditions like cardiovascular disease.


Cases of allergic inflammation are on the rise. In people with allergies, cells in the immune system become overly sensitive and may even respond to substances that aren’t harmful at all. Allergens bind to antibodies triggering the release of histamine resulting in an allergic reaction; sneezing, watery eyes, hives or rash, and in severe cases, anaphylaxis.

“Even though tests for cholesterol provide a lot of useful information, about half of heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol levels. Several studies have shown that, among people with normal cholesterol numbers, those with increased CRP levels have a several-fold higher risk for heart problems. Additional research has shown CRP to be a better predictor of cardiovascular events (heart attacks, strokes, bypass surgery, or angioplasty) than other inflammatory markers.”

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Inflammatory bowel disease is an umbrella term that refers to disorders involving chronic inflammation of your digestive tract; these can include Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The exact cause of IBD is still unknown, but one possible reason is a malfunction of the immune system. When the immune system tries to fight off pathogens, it mistakenly attacks cells in the digestive tract as well causing inflammation.

How inflammation and Nopalea’s ingredients can affect your cellular health


A cell distressed by external toxins and internal deficiencies will eventually wither, collapse and die. Bioflavonoids are a powerful antioxidant that supply structure and function to every human cell. They work with the body to neutralize toxins in the cells as well as drain away accumulations of toxic waste. Bioflavonoids help reduce the activity of the enzymes known to cause inflammation.

The nopal cactus of the Sonoran Desert contains potent bioflavonoids because its environment is so intense; it needs them to survive in such an extreme setting.

The Nopalea™ story, with a new chapter

By Michael R. Ellison

Founder and CEO, TriVita, Inc.

Lower Your inflammation

I am thrilled to announce the results of the random double-blind placebo-controlled study of Nopalea. We were fortunate to have Robert Sheeler, M.D. come to TriVita from Mayo Clinic Rochester, where he was on the approval review board of the pharmaceuticals and clinical studies. Dr. Sheeler helped design this study along with clinical study facilitator, Dr. Gitte Jensen. After waiting several years and a significant expense, the study showed statistical significance in the improvement of joint mobility, neck and back mobility, and flexibility. It also showed statistical significance in the reduction of at-risk levels of C-reactive protein. This dietary supplement helps lower inflammation and enhances the quality of life as not only in evidence of clinical studies but also in the testimonials of thousands of people who live with a greater quality of life.

I would also like to encourage you to go to and click on blogs as you will find more information on chronic inflammation from the latest science, as well as passionate physicians and thought leaders to create better health and wellness outcomes that most of us desire.

Your lifestyle choices matter and here’s why. According to the World Health Organization, chronic inflammatory-related diseases are your greatest health risk. It is noted as a silent killer because its long term effects are not felt until they manifest or erupt like a fire. Scott Conard, M.D. says, “Patients come to my clinic saying ‘I feel fine, I feel fine,’ and then the cardiac event occurs and even death.” Understanding Inflammation, a 24-page document released by Harvard Medical School, reveals C-reactive protein, an inflammatory marker, is now considered a better indicator of your cardiovascular health than other inflammatory markers. That is a bold statement we should all take note of, especially when Americans are spending billions of dollars on statins annually, and thousands of doctors are hyper-focused on cholesterol levels as the number one indicator of heart health.

Cardiologists and other physicians are now revealing what experts at Harvard Medical School also recently publicized. “Several studies have shown that, among people with normal cholesterol numbers, those with increased CRP levels have a several-fold higher risk for heart problems.” (HMS) I am advocating that you take note of the new science, and get your C-reactive protein blood test!

I experienced this years ago. After smoldering silently, chronic inflammation erupted like a fire in my body. My body was screaming, “Quit doing this! Quit inflaming me!” My ignorance was around sleep. I thought sleep was a waste of time. I could not imagine why I would want to embrace the idea until chronic inflammation from sleep deprivation broke out into a raging fire. I was diagnosed with inflammation of the nervous system. My doctors at Mayo Clinic said, “Michael, you must change the way you think about health and life. If you don’t, you will live with a diminishing quality of life, and you will die a premature death.” Yes, chronic inflammation was my greatest health risk.

But there are other causes of chronic inflammation. You must recognize the villain — the robber of your health and quality of life. We put way too much emphasis on treating disease rather than on what is causing illness.

Chronic inflammation is not a specific disease, as stated by NIH. And that is also why, according to Johns Hopkins University, there is not a lot of pharmaceutical research or drugs to address it. It is a mechanistic process of the immune system. Thanks to leading health institutions like Harvard Medical School and leading physicians for publishing books, we are learning the causes and ill effects of chronic inflammation.

William Davis, M.D., cardiologist, is the New York Times bestselling author of Wheat Belly books that forever changed the nutritional world. He challenged one of the biggest lies ever told; eat low fat and high carbohydrate diet. I saw the effects of that diet with my mother, who embraced this as gospel. She would not eat an egg but feasted on pancakes and other high glycemic foods. It was a sad ending to her life as she struggled with the horrific issues of dementia.

Joseph Scherger, M.D. of Eisenhower Health and clinical professor of Family Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California writes in his book Fit and Lean, “Why do we keep poisoning ourselves… The real cause of the poisoning that has made most of us overweight or obese, with a staggering burden of disease, is a toxic food environment, of highly glycemic carbohydrates and inflammatory proteins.”

The point is not to list all the inflammatory causes but to make you aware that inflammation is your most significant health risk, and our foodie culture promotes many of the foods that inflame. Empower yourself. Take command of your life and live with the wellness you desire! Know your indicators like C-reactive protein, BMI and blood sugar levels as they are indicators of the danger lurking within.

Yours in wellness,
