Resolving Inflammation

April 14, 2022

Q&A with Christine Cheng

By Christine Cheng, R.Ph.

Q: I have had arthritis for many years and have managed most of the pain with over-the-counter painkillers and glucosamine, but I wonder if there is anything else that would help my condition?

A: Yes, there are many options available to help with the pain of arthritis and to improve mobility. However, you mentioned that you have suffered for “many years”. Many chronic diseases have an underlying inflammatory component that if not resolved, basically means your body never has a chance to heal or return to a healthy, “normal” state. Specialized Pro-resolving Mediators, or SPMs have been found to help resolve the immune response and help your body return to a “normal” state. SPMs are not a quick-acting supplement, but they can provide significant relief for long-term sufferers of chronic diseases if taken regularly and possibly reduce the need for acute painkillers.
