Speaker: Jason Miller, DACM. Chronic inflammation is a persistent, dysfunctional inflammatory response. It damages cells and tissues, disrupts cell-signaling networks, and can predispose a person to autoimmune conditions or other chronic disease. Chronic inflammation is implicated in the pathogenesis of many conditions including atherosclerosis, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cancer, stroke, chronic pain, periodontal disease, neurodegenerative conditions and cardiovascular disease. Inflammation and pain are nearly always associated with each other. This lecture investigates the subjective nature of pain, its relation to inflammation, and the treatment of inflammation and pain with traditional Chinese medicine principles and herbs, supported by the latest biomedical research.
