Inflammation and Therapies

Inflammation is an attempt by the body to protect itself. The purpose is to remove harmful stimuli such as damaged cells, irritants, pathogens and initiate the healing process. When there is inflammation, white blood cells and the substances they produce protect us from infections by alien species such as bacteria and viruses. However, in some illnesses such as arthritis, the body's defense system, the immune system provokes an inflammatory reaction when there are no foreign invaders to fight. In these diseases, known as autoimmune diseases, the body's normal protective immune system damages its own tissues.
