Inflammation is a defense mechanism in the body. The immune system recognizes damaged cells, irritants, and pathogens, and it begins the healing process.

When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it. The signs and symptoms of inflammation can be uncomfortable but are a show that the body is trying to heal itself.

What is inflammation?

Inflammation is part of the body’s immune response.

It can be beneficial when, for example, your knee sustains a blow and tissues need care and protection. However, sometimes, inflammation can persist longer than necessary, causing more harm than benefit.


Symptoms of inflammation vary depending on whether the reaction is acute or chronic.

The effects of acute inflammation can be summed up by the acronym PRISH. They include:

  • Pain: The inflamed area is likely to be painful, especially during and after touching. Chemicals that stimulate nerve endings are released, making the area more sensitive.
  • Redness: This occurs because the capillaries in the area are filled with more blood than usual.
  • Immobility: There may be some loss of function in the region of the inflammation.
  • Swelling: This is caused by a buildup of fluid.
  • Heat: More blood flows to the affected area, and this makes it feel warm to the touch.

These five acute inflammation signs only apply to inflammations of the skin. If inflammation occurs deep inside the body, such as in an internal organ, only some of the signs may be noticeable.

For example, some internal organs may not have sensory nerve endings nearby, so there will be no pain, such as in certain types of lung inflammation.

Symptoms of chronic inflammation present in a different way. These can include:

  • fatigue
  • mouth sores
  • chest pain
  • abdominal pain
  • fever
  • rash
  • joint pain

Acute inflammation

An acute inflammation is one that starts rapidly and becomes severe in a short space of time. Signs and symptoms are normally only present for a few days but may persist for a few weeks in some cases.

Examples of diseases, conditions, and situations that can result in acute inflammation include:

What is chronic inflammation?

This refers to long-term inflammation and can last for several months and even years. It can result from:

  • failure to eliminate whatever was causing an acute inflammation
  • an autoimmune disorder that attacks normal healthy tissue, mistaking it for a pathogen that causes disease
  • exposure to a low level of a particular irritant, such as an industrial chemical, over a long period

Examples of diseases and conditions that include chronic inflammation:

Rheumatoid arthritis involves chronic inflammation.

Although damaged tissue cannot heal without inflammation, chronic inflammation can eventually cause several diseases and conditions including some cancers, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, periodontitis, and hay fever.

Inflammation needs to be well managed.

Is inflammation painful?

When people have inflammation, it often hurts.

People will feel pain, stiffness, discomfort, distress, and even agony, depending on the severity of the inflammation. The type of pain varies. It can be described as constant and steady, throbbing and pulsating, stabbing, or pinching.

Inflammation primarily causes pain because the swelling pushes against the sensitive nerve endings. This sends pain signals to the brain.

Other biochemical processes also occur during inflammation. They affect how nerves behave, and this can enhance pain.

Unique Biological Therapy

The innovative biological supplement R1 is a complex unique formula, which regulates the physiology of the organism and decreases inflammation and chronic pain. In other words, it is a supplement with multiple actions because of its contents, which are used in the normal concentrations without side effects.


Localized inflammation of an acute or chronic, catarrhal or purulent nature, with swelling of the glands.  Sudden onset of infection and high fever, with irritation of the meninges, conjunctiva, or pharynx.

Specifically: inflammation and suppuration of the pharyngeal lymphatics; all types of tonsillary angina, tonsillitis; scarlet fever; otitis media; conjunctivitis, uveitis; meningitis; inflammation of the maxillary sinus and of the dental roots.

Inflammation of glands: mumps, orchitis, pancreatitis, cholecystitis, appendicitis, parametritis, bartholinitis.

Acute rheumatic polyarthritis, monoarthritis, gouty arthritis.  Lymphadenitis, lymphangitis, phlegmonous inflammation, abscess; whitlow; furuncles and carbuncles; erysipelas; quinsy.


Apis mellifica: Inflammatory infiltration, with edematous swelling.

Baryta muriatica: Chronic disease with swelling and suppuration of the lymph nodes, such as in tuberculous lymphadenitis, affecting children.

Belladonna: Inflammatory hyperemia of the skin, mucous membranes and glands; dryness of the mucosa; high fever, delirium; moistness of the skin during fever.

Calcarea iodata: Chronic tonsillitis; lymphadenitis and swelling of the lymph nodes in the throat and neck.

Hepar sulphuris calcareum: Tendency for catarrhal inflammations and suppuration.

Kali bichromicum: Plastic exudation of the mucous membranes in the nose, pharyngeal cavity and pharynx.  Viscous, stringy mucus; mucosal ulceration.

Lachesis mutus: Acute pyogenic infection; cardiac irregularity.

Mercurius sublimatus: Acute inflammation of the glandular mucosa; sticky perspiration.

Phytolacca decandra: Swelling and reddening of the pharynx and tonsils; pain which radiates upwards to the ears.

Teucrium marum: Adenoid vegetation; chronic catarrh of the postnasal cavities.

Also, for great results, R1 can be combined with. R11, R14, R29, R46, R55, R71, R73 that can be seen in the link:,   and also with R16, R69, R81, R35 that can be seen in the link that include pain of any kind.
