Inflammation:

The City College of New York Continuing and Professional Studies


Inflammation: The Slient Killer

What do obesity, heart disease, cancer, and asthma have in common? Inflammation is a link to these and a host of other chronic illnesses. When we think of Inflammation, most of us think of a bump or a bruise, not a chronic illness like asthma or obesity. In-flammation is a transitory response in the body; when that response becomes chronic, the body begins to attack itself – leading to many illnesses, including heart disease and cancer. Drew DiVittorio, a nutritional consultant and health coach trained in Oriental Medicine and Nutrition, and board certified in Traditional Chinese Herbology, brings a wealth of experience and insight to this class which will look at the theory behind In-flammation and how chronic inflammation impacts your health. There will be coverage of the many natural ways to reduce and treat inflammation with a focus on anti-inflammatory diets, herbs, foods, supplements and exercises that reduce inflammation.

Ginseng

  1. 3. Ginseng is greatly valued as a tonic, a substance that acts to normalize body function and biochemistry. According to traditional Chinese medicine the individual who will benefit from Ginseng is overwhelmed and exhausted


Bladderwrack
  1. Bladderwrack (seaweed) is a nutrient that provides a natural source of iodine which is required for the synthesis of T4 in the thyroid gland. Stress hinders the proper function of this metabolic regulator, the thyroid.  Research suggests that high levels of stress affects the synthesis of thyroid hormone T4 and T3 causing, weigh gain, fatigue, depression, irritability, memory loss, and possible heart failure.


  1. B12 is also important in maintaining the nervous system. Nerves are surrounded by an insulating fatty sheath comprised of a complex protein called myelin. B12 plays a vital role in the metabolism of fatty acids essential for the maintenance of myelin. Prolonged B12 deficiency can lead to nerve degeneration and irreversible neurological damage.
