What causes chronic inflammation?

Inflammation is an immune system response that develops when your body defends itself against foreign invaders.

When viruses or bacteria enter your body, your immune system springs into action to destroy it. In response, your body creates inflammatory cells to fight against the threat and save your body.

While your body is intelligent and complex, it sometimes misinterprets an innocent substance, such as a particular food, as a harmful invader. When that happens, your immune system produces an inflammatory response against itself, which over time leads to pain, illness, and other health complications.

Dr. Feiwel specializes in diagnostic testing and treatment services to prevent chronic inflammation and the damage it can cause. She offers food sensitivity and chemical sensitivity testing to identify exactly what’s triggering your body’s inflammatory response.
