    These Surgeries & Chronic Inflammation

    I was just reading Dr. David Williams Aug Newsletter and his big subject was:

    Chronic Inflammation: A Silent Killer

    Acute inflammation is basically from injection and injury.

    I believe our replacement surgeries are INJURIES....I believe
    this more and more since my hip replacement in 2010....I've
    been a big mess.

    Acute goes to chronic if it's not addressed.

    I take Anatabloc and now Zyflamend to work on reducing
    inflammation and also work to not eat pro inflammatory foods
    which includes SUGARS....

    Egg Yolks are pro inflammatory for all the egg eaters out there...
    sad but true.

    One of my salvations are pycnogenol and grape seed extract which
    I'm entering into my 18th yr on these your research, many cancer research centers use them in cancer research and much more health issues...believe me, very true. jam

    Oops: Meant to say acute inflammation from

    Infection and Injury/Trauma...

    These surgeries are injury and traumas.
