Chronic inflammation

Findings from health research show that chronic inflammation play a central role in many complex diseases. For Western medicine, this is a new approach. In Tibetan medicine, on the other hand, this is a centuries-old concept. Thus, formulations such as PADMA 28N are traditionally used in chronic inflammatory processes to treat the cause of the health problem.

Inflammation is now known to be a contributing cause of very many diseases. According to a Harvard Medical School report, “chronic inflammation plays a central role in some of the civilisation diseases of our time, including rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, autoimmune diseases or arteriosclerosis, and it even accelerates the ageing of cells”.

Acute inflammation is a natural defence mechanism of the body. Injuries as well as pathogens trigger acute inflammation, with the help of which they are fought and eliminated.

However, there are also stimuli that activate the immune system over a longer period of time. These include, among other things, stresses that affect the body on a daily basis due to modern lifestyles, such as lack of exercise (due to sedentary activities), poor diet, environmental toxins, stressful medications and smoking. But the body is also always on alert due to stress, overload and psychosocial conflicts.

This ongoing mild irritation can lead to a chronic and subliminal state of inflammation throughout the body.

This leads to the fact that the body’s own natural anti-inflammatory processes can no longer be sufficiently set in motion. Due to the constant activation, the immune system suffers in the long run and the defence is weakened.

Caught in the cycle of the immune system

In chronic inflammation, the immune system constantly produces defence substances that not only attack the trigger of the inflammation, but also healthy cells. This leads to tissue damage, which in turn is a new trigger for the immune system and thus triggers a new process. This sometimes leads to greater damage than that caused by the original pathogen.

Statistics show that the number of chronic inflammatory diseases has increased steadily in recent decades. In the past, they were more prevalent among older people in western industrialised countries, which is why they are also referred to as diseases of affluence. Today, the number is continuously increasing worldwide and younger people are also increasingly affected.

A frequent consequence of chronic inflammation is the alteration of the blood vessels. Circulatory disorders are also the first symptoms of inflammatory disease processes. “It is important to pay attention to a gentle regulation of immune functions and at the same time to maintaining healthy blood circulation in inflammatory processes and especially in chronic inflammations,” explains Dr. Cécile Vennos, head of research at PADMA AG.

A chronic inflammatory cycle is a multi-layered, complex process. In order to break it, the immune system needs gentle impulses that act simultaneously on several levels in the body. The herbal medicines from Tibetan medicine work according to this holistic approach.

Tibetan formulations consist of a multitude of different ingredients that support each other in their effect and balance out possible undesirable effects. As a result, these multi-substance mixtures work synergistically and simultaneously on several levels of the body.
