Chronic Diseases a Crisis in the U.S.

Chronic Diseases – a Crisis in the U.S. – Chronic diseases are steadily increasing in the U.S.  Sadly, experts predict that about 50% of all Americans will suffer at least one chronic disease by 2030.  Yes, you read that right about one half of all Americans will suffer at least one chronic disease by 2030.

Chronic Diseases – a Crisis in the U.S. – So what exactly is a chronic disease?  Chronic diseases are a set of long term illnesses such as heart disease, asthma, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and many more.  While some state they are incurable, the CDC reports that many of these are reversible and avoidable.  But before I get into that, let me provide you with some more powerful statistics.  First of all, did you know that chronic disease is the number one cause of death in the United States?  Currently, about 133 million Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease (Rand Corp).  Secondly, chronic diseases are responsible for seven out of every 10 deaths in the U.S.  In fact, chronic disease kills more than 1.7 million Americans every year (CDC).

In addition to shortening your life, chronic diseases can be disabling and reduce your quality of life.  The risk is even greater if the disease goes undiagnosed or untreated.  In fact, did you know that every 30 doctors amputate a lower limb as a consequence of diabetes?  In addition to physical suffering, chronic diseases also play a serious economic toll on the United States. in fact, chronic diseases account for 81% of hospital admissions; 91% of all prescriptions filled; and 76% of all physician visits in the U.S (RWJF).  According to Kaiser, health care premiums for employer-sponsored family coverage have increased by more than 87% since 2000.

 Prevention is Best

While the best solution is prevention, if you catch most of these problems early enough you can reverse them.  Fortunately, the solution is the same for either.  It’s eat well, move well and think well.  After all the number one cause of chronic disease is stress.  And there are three forms of stress.  They include mechanical stress, nutritional stress and emotional stress.  Sadly, your body doesn’t know the difference between them.  As a result your body responds to each of them the same way.

Worried?  Let us Help

While I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including chronic diseases), I can help your body work the way it’s supposed to work in a healthy way.  I provide this support with a specific plan. And this plan usually includes custom dietary changes and the correct enzyme supplements, home exercises, chiropractic treatment, and positive thinking. Of course I only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.

Are you concerned about digestive health? Do you spend hours or days at home waiting for your problems to subside? Are you missing out on work family or fun? If so, give us a call and set up a consultation. I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA? These tests help me determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

Roundup Causes Cancer? Strong Evidence on both Sides

Roundup Causes Cancer?  While the EPA states there is little to no risk of cancer from roundup, the World Health Organization may think otherwise.

RoundUp causes cancer?  In fact as of this year, there are over 800 lawsuits against a major food company for causing cancer.  These cases allege that a chemical called glyphosate is the cause. So what exactly is it?  It’s a popular weed killer.  Have you ever heard of RoundUp?   While other companies also use this controversial chemical, RoundUp pioneered it.  Meanwhile, the company that makes RoundUp states there is no risk.  In fact they claim there are over 800 worldwide studies showing no connection between their products and cancer.

However, The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer begs to differ.  They stated that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”  This means that it can lead to cancer.  In fact, the report states that there is evidence for this herbicide to cause non Hodgkin lymphoma.

The evidence comes from studies in the USA, Canada, and Sweden.  The studies are ongoing  since 2001. In addition, there is convincing evidence that glyphosate also can cause cancer in laboratory animals.  This report spurred hundreds of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma patients to take legal action.

Take Control of your Health

While I don’t treat any disease, I may be able to help your body filter out toxins properly.  I only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.  However, my treatment usually involves dietary changes in combination with the right enzyme supplements.

Are you concerned about your health?  Does your ailment affect your work, family life or active lifestyle?  Would you like to support a healthy body safely, naturally and effectively?  Would you like to avoid drugs or surgery?  If so, give us a call and set up a consultation.  I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis, which is trusted by both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  This will help me determine if you are a good candidate for care.  If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

In fact, did you know that in the United States, chronic disease and conditions account for most of our nation’s health care costs?   “Over eighty-six percent of all health care spending in 2010 was for people with one or more chronic medical conditions. (CDC)”   The total costs of heart disease and stroke in 2010 were well over $315 billion. Of this amount, more than $193 billion was for direct medical costs.  That is it did not include costs for home care and rehab.  Additionally, cancer alone care cost $157 billion in 2010 dollars.

Meanwhile, diabetes cost this nation $245 billion in 2012.  This includes $176 billion in direct medical costs and $69 billion in work absence.   Sadly, the total cost of arthritis and related conditions was about $128 billion in 2003. Of this amount, nearly $81 billion was for direct medical costs and $47 billion was for indirect costs associated with lost work. Last but not least is obesity.  Obesity cost the U.S. about $147 billion in 2008. Annual medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher per person than those for people of normal weight in 2006.

Enzymes help Asthma, Research Shows

Enzymes help Asthma, Research Shows – Do you suffer from asthma?  Does it stifle your active lifestyle?  Sadly, up until now you could only manage the symptoms.  And while that’s super important, new research supports the use of enzymes to help with asthma.

Enzymes help Asthma.  According to the CDC, asthma affected over 26 and a half million Americans in 2010.  According to the Asthma foundation it has been on the rise since the 1970’s.    That’s about 17% of Americans, or one in 5 or 6.  That’s also about a 25% increase since 2001.  It is projected to increase by over 30% by 2030.

Sadly, modern medicine can only manage the symptoms, or respond to an attack.  Now I’m not understating the importance of that.  An asthma attack can be lethal, so when it flares up, intervention can save your life.  As always, I am very grateful for modern medicine’s ability to handle crisis care.  However, that seems to be all they can do.

Asthma is An Allergic Attack

Asthma is basically your body’s immune system overreacting to an allergen.  When this happens, certain immune cells go into overdrive.  This leads to inflammation, and constriction of the airways in the lungs making breathing very difficult.  It can also worsen with exertion.  In fact 3 out of 5 asthma sufferers are forced to limit their physical activity because it could risk a serious flare up.  Additionally, nearly 1 in 2 children miss at least a day of school each year because of their asthma. And nearly 1 in 3 adults miss at least 1 day of work each year because of their asthma. Asthma also interferes with your daily activities:  as I said earlier, nearly 3 in 5 people with asthma limit their usual activities because of their condition.

How Enzymes Help Asthma

However, researchers at Johns Hopkins showed subjects missing a specific enzyme had T cells that were out of control.  These specific T cells are part of your immune system.  When they’re out of control they can cause an asthma attack.  This enzyme, SGK1, keeps those T cells under control.  As a side note, subjects in the study also developed fewer tumors.  This shows that the same enzyme may be helpful in the treatment of certain types of cancer.  Of course what the medical community wants to do is mimic this behavior with a drug, rather than supply the enzyme to a patient who is deficient.  However, it’s nice to see the medical community validating my work.

Our Approach to Respiratory Health

It’s important to remember that I don’t treat any disease.  This, of course, includes asthma.  However, we can support healthy function of your liver, immune system, skin and kidneys.  We can also support healthy digestion.  Now I know what you’re thinking, what do these have to do with asthma?  When your immune system overreacts, it’s because there’s something in your body that shouldn’t be there.

The Body’s Filters

Just what keeps them out?  Your body has three main “filters”, which are your liver, kidneys and skin.  It’s also important to look at digestive health because there are only two ways into the liver.  They are through digestion or from the blood stream.  There are also numerous studies showing chiropractic care helpful in support for healthy breathing.   Once specific testing identifies the source of stress, we use a combination of specific chiropractic care, dietary changes, and the right enzyme supplements to help your body work properly.  Of course a properly working body doesn’t suffer from health problems like asthma (but again, I don’t treat asthma).

Are you concerned about respiratory health or immune health?  Does it affect your work, family life or active lifestyle?  If so, give us a call and set up a consultation.  I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis, which is trusted by both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  This will help me determine if you are a good candidate for care.  If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.
