In the age where chronic disease is truly public enemy number one, it would seem ideal to find one simple blood test to detect risk and, in turn, one simple solution to eliminate it—a quest for a group of genius scientists.
But, what if that simple blood test already exists? What if there’s already a solution?
Those aforementioned genius scientists have been hard at work (for more than 70 years), and they developed a test that can give you insight into your health and, more specifically, your risk of disease. It is a simple blood test that detects the levels of CRP in your blood. CRP stands for C-reactive protein and is a chief marker of inflammation in the body. In fact, research has shown that individuals with high CRP levels have 1,700 percent increased risk of diabetes and three times greater risk of heart disease.
Inflammation has been identified as the key factor in a number of diseases, including metabolic syndrome, heart disease, arthritis, dementia, cancer, and even allergies and the appearance of aging.
So, if inflammation is the key to your risk of these diseases and a simple test of your CRP levels will tell the tale, why haven’t you been tested yet?
While there may be lots of reasons to avoid being tested, none of them stacks up to at least one of the reasons you should get this blood test: it could save your life.
But, back to that solution for chronic disease. Believe it or not, the solution to chronic disease dates back even farther than the testing. You can minimize harmful inflammation and thus substantially minimize your risk with these changes:
- Monitor your health with routine doctor visits.
- Treat chronic infections like viruses, bacteria, yeasts, or parasites.
- Avoid a high-sugar, processed-foods diet.
- Limit or, better yet, eliminate inflammatory fats (omega 6 fats like processed vegetable oils and trans fats).
- Exercise more—make it an almost daily habit.
- Reduce stress.
- Address food allergies and sensitivities.
- Clear your environment of mold and other environmental allergens.
- Strive to diminish overload of environmental toxins.
