What is INFLAMMATION?



What is Inflammation?

Inflammation is a process by which the body’s white blood cells and chemicals protect us from infection and foreign substances such as bacteria and viruses.

In some diseases, however, the body’s defense system (immune system) inappropriately triggers an inflammatory response when there are no foreign substances to fight off. In these diseases, called autoimmune diseases, the body’s normally protective immune system causes damage to its own tissues. The body responds as if normal tissues are infected or somehow abnormal.

Without inflammation the body cannot heal properly. Inflammation brings extra blood supply to the injured site and this is the reason why an inflammed site is always red and swollen. The problem arises when it is low and persistent. The Medical World is just beginning to understand that persistent low grade inflammation can be very serious. Dr Sears called this the "Silent Inflammation". He said that this silent inflammation is the underlying cause of heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease. Virtually every type of chronic disease has a significant inflammatory component as its underlying cause. A primary focus of modern medical research remains the reduction of inflammation.

Chronic inflammation is brought about by an over-expression or lack of control of the normal protective mechanisms. Chronic inflammation has also been linked to a range of conditions associated with heart diseases, osteoporosis, cognitive decline and Alzheimer's, type-2 diabetes and arthritis.

A list of established biomarkers for inflammation exists, with commonly touted markers including C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), IL-10, IL-18, moncyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha).

Reducing the levels of these biomarkers has been the target for a number of nutrition studies. One of the best studied is the Omega-3 fatty acids. A study by Professor Manohar Garg from the Newcastle University in New South Wales found that increased blood levels of Omega-3s DHA (decosahexaeonic acid and EPA (ecosapentaenoic acid) were associated with reduced levels of CRP (European Journal of Nutrition, 2009, Vol.63, pp 1154-1156).





Osumex 10-P Test is a non-invasive analysis to detect the presence of bilirubin, blood, glucose, ketone, leukocyte (white blood cells), nitrite, pH, protein, specific gravity and urobilinogen in urine..

The test is a very good early and preliminary detection of health problems with:
  • kidney function
  • liver function
  • acid-base balance
  • bacteriurea - bacteria infection of the bladder
  • uncontrolled and possible onset of diabetes mellitus (type-2)
  • carbohydrate metabolism


Whilst the test is not conclusive but it is a good preventative measure so that the user can consult his or her professional health care practitioner to follow up on positive results before it is too late.

Each Osumex 10-P Test kit consists of a test-tube, a strip contained in a pouch, colour chart to check results of the test and an insert on usage and information. Please see images below.
