In this episode Holly Jean and Dr. Jockers discuss chronic inflammation and how it contributes to the development of many diseases and various types of cancer. Genetic risk factors, a compromised immune system, stress, obesity, lack of sleep, and a poor diet all play a role in the onset of chronic inflammation.

How can keto, or feeding the body with ketones, help the body promote healing and recovering? Dr. Jockers explains it! We also discuss some of the common symptoms of chronic inflammation and the connection to gut health and the impacts of a leaky gut on entire body systems.
