Inflammation is a localized protective response to an injury or infection.
Inflammation occurs from our suppressed, unresolved anger, which was created by our feeling stressed, irritated and victimized, sometimes by even the smallest things.
The area of the body that is inflamed can give us further clues as to the metaphor of the illness.
