Inflammation is your body’s natural response to healing. But, chronic inflammation can affect your long-term health, cause premature aging, and increase your risk of unwanted weight gain. 

As an expert in bariatrics, functional medicine, and allergies, James Stalker, DC, understands the complex role food sensitivities and allergies play in weight management. At East Bay Wellness in San Ramon, California, Dr. Stalker can identify the cause of your chronic inflammation and develop a personalized strategy to help you beat it.

Inflammation and weight gain

When your body detects something out of the ordinary, your immune system kicks into action, activating inflammation to kill off the foreign invaders. This can happen in response to a wide variety of substances, from bacteria, viruses, and pollen to compounds in the foods you eat. And, because everyone’s body is unique, that means what triggers your immune system may not trigger someone else’s. Even healthy foods may trigger your immune system.

Eating foods that trigger inflammation causes a domino effect in your body. First, your cortisol and histamine levels to rise. Histamine leads to water-weight gain, while cortisol affects long-term fat storage. Rising cortisol levels can also increase your stress responses, which can impact your hormones. When your hormones are constantly fluctuating, it can affect your thyroid. And, your thyroid controls your metabolism. All of these pieces can cause weight gain and fat that you can’t seem to lose.

Common causes of chronic inflammation include:

  • Sugar
  • Refined carbs
  • Processed foods
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • A sedentary lifestyle, or lack of exercise

To help you identify the specific foods triggering chronic inflammation in you, Dr. Stalker performs a finger prick. This simple blood test looks for sensitivities to 96 different substances. It takes 7-10 days to get your results, after which Dr. Stalker can develop a strategy to help manage your condition. He might also recommend inflammation-controlling supplements, such as Inflammatone™, in combination with a customized diet or natural weight-loss program.
