Almost every modern disease is caused, or made worse, by hidden inflammation. Hidden inflammation is something that you cannot necessarily see or feel but it affects the way your body functions. This is also sometimes called systemic inflammation.
The best way to get to the root cause of disease is to understand how your personal environment interacts with your genetics to determine your overall state of health or disease. Your personal environment consists of what you are eating, your stress levels, trauma you may have experienced, toxins you are exposed to, and the water you drink.
