When the acute inflammation isn’t resolved, it becomes chronic. For example, when the body is immobile and swollen and you are in pain, you will probably try to solve this issue by taking painkillers, however, that won’t solve the root cause.

Also, stress additionally causes inflammation and our bodies lose the needed vitamins and minerals.
