Inflammation is your body’s main defense mechanism, meant to anticipate, intercept and destroy invading microorganisms. Inflammation causes redness, swelling, heat and pain. Inflammation helps your immune system fight invaders and heal injuries, but can be dangerous if it becomes chronic.

Immunomodulator drugs are relatively new and have just about “cured” many people suffering from autoimmune diseases or compromised immune systems.
