My friend Mucha just moved to LA and she's renting out our guest room briefly while she gets settled. It's nice to have someone to teach all of my newfound information about the neighborhood and living in LA. She used the same movers we used, she already has her driver's license, she's getting stuff done.
She's also getting hives. It's probably a weed allergy she hasn't been exposed to yet, so she's doing the things you do like taking Zyrtec and whatnot, but I suggested drinking my Hibiscus Coconut tea to help with the inflammation.
She said to me, "What the heck is inflammation anyway?" (She didn't say heck, actually.) She's right, people throw around health buzzwords but they rarely get explained in this mile a minute internet world.
I'm going to tell you my understanding of inflammation.
