Yoga for Healthy Aging: Curbing Inflammation to Prevent Chronic Disease with Baxter BellCURBING INFLAMMATION to Prevent Chronic Disease

Increasingly, researchers are pointing to a new risk factor for chronic disease: Inflammation. Inflammation is a natural immune system defense mechanism, but when it becomes chronic, it becomes a risk factor for a host of chronic conditions, including atherosclerosis, diabetes, arthritis, thyroid issues, fibromyalgia, and more.

Aging is one of the biggest risk factors for chronic inflammation. As we age, our bodies are less able to regulate the inflammatory process, and out-of-control, chronic inflammation often results.

Once inflammation goes out of control, it quickly spirals into disease as the immune system fails to distinguish between foreign invaders and the body, making the body vulnerable to attacks from its own defense system. What predisposes us to chronic inflammation, and how do you know if you have it? How can yoga help prevent or curb chronic inflammation?

In this online course we explore this critical disease factor and offers advice on how to prevent chronic inflammation or curb it if it’s already a factor.

Course includes both audio sessions to listen to again and again, written transcripts and a free yoga video practice designed around rebalancing inflammation.
