Inflammation: redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, heat, and disturbed function of tissues or organs of the body reflecting terrain issues hormonal imbalance, trauma and/or injurious agents.  [Text book definition.]

Low-grade inflammation: is a common state of existence for 99% of the population; meaning, people’s inflammation is below medical radar. Clinical inflammation comes with clinical dis-ease and diagnosis.  Long before clinical inflammation can be diagnosed or the patient is in a state of misery, low-grade inflammation has been actively occurring throughout the entire body.

Know that the primary driver of inflammation in the body is mold and fungal mycotoxins.  To learn more on this critical subject, see Special Insights, The Missing Diagnosis.


Inflammation is always involved in any pathological condition, syndrome or disorder, and it is not an overstatement to assert that fungal infestation is at the very CORE of all inflammatory issues.

Bacteria and viruses assert themselves after fungi have stressed body organs and tissues, not the other way around.

Inflammation can be divided into two categories for better understanding.  Low-grade inflammation and clinical inflammation.

Contrary to medical folklore, inflammation is always the EFFECT and never the cause of distress, illness and disease.

The insidious, almost occult, aspect of low-grade inflammation is what sets the stage for serious medical challenge that would never take form or develop had the underlying factors driving low-grade inflammation been addressed or avoided.

For example, deterioration of a joint, as in formation of spurs and scar tissue or arthritis, sets the stage for injuries that are years in the coming, such as: worn out cartilage or or torn tendon/ligaments.

Low-grade inflammation is the STATE of the human condition and is at the very core of aging and disease. And when extreme suffering is associated with a morbid condition, such as cancer, inflammatory responses are ALWAYS autoimmune in nature.  Meaning, the inflammation is NOT caused by cancer; cancer is the effect.

Know, you cannot have an autoimmune condition, disorder or syndrome without participation by mycotoxin produced by systemic invasion of the body by fungi.

Autoimmune responses are progressive in nature because inflammation is progressive in nature and the ongoing side-effect of a compromised, intestinal, gut wall, poor diet, fungal infestation, poor digestion, sluggish bowels, dysfunctional liver and the effects of the Sugar/Alcohol Cycle and the Autoimmune Attack Cycle. (Click hyperlinks to read about each.)

Furthermore, imbalance between the regulatory hormones insulin, leptin, adrenaline and cortisol plays a MAJOR role in the presence of low-grade inflammation in the body.

Miscellaneous Observations

Sugar and sweets (including fruit and alcohol) are the MOST inflammatory foods you can put into your body, and if you consume these, you will perpetuate low-grade inflammation throughout your body’s terrain.

Please read about and study the Germ Theory of Disease to better understand the nature of inflammation as it relates to illness, suffering and premature death.

The medical model does not recognize inflammatory conditions such as chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia and therefore, ignores them as if they do not exist. The reason is because these ailments are sub-clinical  i.e. they are NOT clinical in nature.

Sub-clinical means whatever is going on, the doctor is either unable or unwilling to issue a diagnosis and therefore, it does not exist. It is below radar.  Unfortunately, MISDIAGNOSIS is far more common and nothing is worse than treatment for something you do not have.

Alternative medicine is not immune to analysis by endless tests that force compliance with the standard of care imposed upon it by orthodox medicine and the pharmaceutical cartel.

Alternative practitioners are ALLOWED to work the margins of the system, but are required by protocol and license to refer to physicians or specialists the MOMENT they suspect or confirm the patient’s condition has taken on the status of CLINICAL disease!

With notable exceptions, both mainstream and alternative communities generally fail to recognize people’s complaints in the context of the symptoms presented because most are sub-clinical in nature, or misdiagnosis is given because of misinterpretation of symptoms within the medical model.

Patients are forced to seek understanding and guidance on their own outside of mainstream medicine that is commonly known as the sick-cares system.
