Basics of Dr. Ali’s Anti-Inflammatory Protocol
Majid Ali, M.D.
In this article, I outline the basics of my anti-inflammatory protocol for chronic inflammatory conditions. My guidelines for simple, safe, effective, and low-cost remedies initially should be considered under the supervision of a professional.
INFLAMMATION ANY PLACE IN THE BODY IS INFLAMMATION EVERYWHERE IN THE BODY
Here is some text from my article entitled The Oxygen Model of Inflammation on this website. I urge readers to consider the full article for a deeper understanding of the nutritional, environmental, and stress-related triggers of inflammation.
Life is an unending injury-healing-injury cycle. Injury is inevitable in an organism’s struggle for survival. Healing is the intrinsic capacity of the organism to repair damage inflicted by that injury. Inflammation — in my view — is one aspect of the energetic-molecular mosaic of that intrinsic capacity. This view of inflammation — that it is a physiologic component of the essential injury-healing-injury nature of life — extends far beyond the classical and wholly inadequate notion of it being a process characterized by edema, erythema, tenderness, pain, and infiltrate of inflammatory cells. Since oxygen is the organizing influence of human biology and governs the aging process in humans, it follows that inflammation, first and foremost, is one of the many face of oxygen homeostasis. In 1990, I devoted a large part of Oxygen and Aging to this subject.1
