Is there are common root cause for following disorders according to peer reviewed literature?

Cardiovascular Disease
Autoimmune Disease
Neurodegenerative disease (Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease)
Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance/Diabetes
Immunosenescence (the progressive decline in immune function with increasing age)

And the answer is:


The National Institutes of Health reports that about 67% of people worldwide—three out of every five individuals—are at risk of dying from diseases linked to chronic inflammation.

Surprisingly, many doctors overlook testing for inflammation, even though it's a key factor in nearly all chronic diseases, including multiple sclerosis, heart disease, and cancer.

It's crucial for everyone to understand that simple tests can provide significant insights into your inflammation levels and overall health.

Chronic inflammation is a stealthy issue underlying almost every major health condition.

Unlike acute inflammation, which is often noticeable through pain or swelling, chronic systemic inflammation silently deteriorates your health.

Since chronic inflammation often goes untested, many may not realize they're affected by it.

Early signs of inflammation can appear in blood tests years, even decades, before manifesting as serious diseases.

Conversely, reducing inflammation can positively impact the treatment of these conditions.

The perils of inflammation are extensive, making its management critical for maintaining good health.

So, let's explore how to measure and manage inflammation.

Testing for Inflammation

I recommend three blood tests to assess inflammation levels:

C-reactive protein (CRP): This protein, produced by the liver, rises in response to inflammation. CRP levels are categorized as:

Less than 1.0 = Low risk
1.0-2.9 = Intermediate risk
Over 3.0 = High risk
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR): This test measures the rate at which red blood cells settle in a test tube. An ESR below 15 is preferable.
Fibrinogen Blood Test: Fibrinogen, a protein that promotes blood clots and affects blood viscosity, increases with inflammation. A level below 300 is ideal.

Additional tests I often recommend include: Myeloperoxidase (MPO), Interleukin 6 (IL-6), Tumor Necrosis Factor, Red Blood Cell Distribution Width (RDW), and Uric Acid.

Potential Causes of Inflammation

Chronic Infections
Physical Inactivity
Gut Dysbiosis
Low Nutrient Dense Diet
Chronic Stress
Disturbed Sleep
Environmental Toxins (Chemicals, Heavy Metals, Mycotoxins)

The key question is how to combat the systemic inflammation that contributes to these diseases. The solution isn't straightforward—it requires identifying and treating the root causes. By addressing these underlying factors, it's possible to reverse or halt the progression of many chronic diseases. I've seen remarkable results when the root causes are identified and a targeted treatment plan is implemented.
