Inflammation when there is no injury or infection can indicate the immune system is attacking healthy cells in the body and damaging them. When people say they want to reduce inflammation what they are really hoping to do is reduce the damage of the immune system responding when it shouldn't.

How do they know they even have this inflammation?
