is an abnormal state of living tissue that occurs in reaction to an insult or injury to the human body. I humbly offer my sincere advice that you regulate and monitor your daily water intake faithfully using the watercure protocol as found spread out through this Healthy Wealth blogsite.

Inflammation is a body process so basic and obvious to the naked eye that the ancient Egyptians described inflammation in papyrus scrolls.
Inflammation is associated with infected wounds.

Succinctly described, inflammation is found with four cardinal signs :
1. rubor (redness),
2. tumor (swelling),
3. calore (heat),
4. dolore (pain).
This description holds up today (although we've added quite a few details to this basic knowledge). Inflamed tissue, whether on the surface or internal to the human body, is red, swollen, hot, and painful.

Inflammation is set off by insult or injury to the human body, and it turns out that the body can be pretty sensitive to insults.

Inflammation can occur in reaction to infections, physical injuries, exposure to chemicals and allergens, stretching and manipulation of body tissue, burns, lacerations, and contusions.

Sometimes substances occurring naturally in one's own body can trigger inflammation, in what is called autoimmunity.

And under the right circumstances, distress or other emotional reactions may trigger inflammation in some people.

Not only can just about any provocation set off inflammation, but virtually any tissue or body organ can be inflamed. In medicine, the suffix -itis is added to words to denote inflammation of the organ or tissue represented by the word. So anytime, you see/hear a word that ends in -itis, the subject is inflammation.

For example, the Greek word rhino refers to nose, so the word rhinitis refers to inflammation (of the inner lining) of the nose.

Arthro- refers to joints, so arthritis refers to inflammation of the joints. A patient with arthritis has joints that are painful and swollen, and which can also be red and hot. Why these signs/symptoms? The affected region is dehydrating and "intensive repair work is in process" - inflammation, so do the body a simple favour, that is provide sufficient water daily, and in due time all these "repair works" completed, the pain will be turn off, inflammation gone, and patient's body recovered from arthritis.

Pain is closely related to inflammation. Pain is the body's 'loud cries' of element deficiency to our conscious mind, and common sense tells us just by providing the missing element, the pain-cry will stop.
Even the lightest touch can cause severe pain in inflamed tissue. This is one of the reason doctors squeeze and poke and prod at various locations of your body when you are sick. In reality, you are not sick, but you are dehydrating. Too simple?

The doctors are trying to locate potential sites of inflammation. In medicine, the -algia means "pain." Hence, arthralgia means "pain in a joint.' A patient with arthritis (inflammation of the joints) has arthralgia (pain in the joints), but there are other causes of arthralgia in addition to inflammation.

Prolonged chronic dehydration had caused many body pain and many doctors just invent more labels/names to those pain, but fall short of rectifying the first cause of the pain, which happened to be dehydration in the body cells. Silly at time, when you are travelling in a vehicle which had one tire punctured and you drove it to the workshop and the mechanic just confirmed the puncture after going through his long list of standard operation checklist and later charged you all these preliminaries tests in the bill.
