The inflammation circuit consists of the immune system, the gastrointestinal tract, and the microbiome. The inflammation circuit responds to any situation in your body to keep itself healthy and working optimally. It is a natural, biological response. Problems arise, however, when inflammation is unchecked. Where your body’s natural inflammatory response is not curbed and controlled, the result may be chronic inflammation.
Most of the different inflammatory diseases start in your body’s gut (gastrointestinal or GI tract). From there, they spread to different parts of your body. The gut’s lining is permeable, meaning it allows certain substances to pass through and enter the bloodstream.
When this permeability increases, however, unwanted substances also pass through, thereby triggering the body’s immune system in order to fight it. This may result in not only inflammation but also allergies and diseases consequently. In certain instances these toxins make their way to your brain, resulting in not only depression but certain neurological problems as well.
Under ‘normal’ conditions, your immune system identifies and targets enemy pathogens, while leaving those considered as beneficial alone. At times, however, this is not the case, and the inflammation circuit becomes overzealous, creating an immune response to even normal cells and conditions.When this occurs, certain antibodies become confused between what they see as a normal cell and what is perceived as a pathogen. It then attacks indiscriminately. The result, when this happens, is that the inflammation circuit is then presented with flare-ups that happen to be consistent with certain autoimmune conditions.
