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.

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.

Diabetic Kidney Disease and Enzymes

Diabetic Kidney Disease and Enzymes – Did you know that people with diabetes are more likely to suffer kidney disease?  When there is too much sugar in the blood stream, your kidneys work too hard trying to filter it out.  Over time, this takes its toll on your kidneys leading to disease and eventually failure.  However research shows that certain enzymes may help restore kidney health in these cases.

In fact, this research comes from the October 25 issue of Journal of Clinical Investigation.  In the study, researchers stimulated the mitochondria.  The mitochondria is essentially the “power house of the cell”.  They did this  by activating a key energy sensing enzyme called AMPK, superoxide.  When they did this, diabetic kidney disease markedly declined.  So how do you increase your AMPK levels?  You can boost beneficial AMPK activity through simple lifestyle changes.  These include weight loss and exercise.

We can Help

In fact, while I don’t treat diseases, I can support a body the works properly.  This includes support for health kidney function, sugar metabolism, and body composition.  I provide this support with a specific plan. And this plan usually includes custom dietary changes and the correct enzyme supplements. Of course I only make recommendations after scientific testing based on sound medical principles.  With over 30 years of experience, we can even help you develop an exercise program.  Of course we can also provide specific enzyme supplements to support healthy kidney function.

Are you concerned about kidney 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?

Parkinson’s Disease and Digestive Health

Parkinson’s Disease and Digestive Health – Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a long term disease that progresses over time.  While it is not life threatening, it severely impacts your active lifestyle.  New research shows that this disease may start in the gut.

Parkinson’s Disease and Digestive Health.  About 50,000 Americans suffer from PD each year.  At the same time, it affects more than half a million Americans at any given time.  However brand new cutting edge research shows that it may start in the gut.  According to a study published in the April 26, 2017, issue of Neurology, preliminary evidence shows that PD may start in the gut.  Neurology is the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.  In fact the research came out in April of 2017.

The connection comes from a very important nerve called the vagus nerve.  The vagus nerve extends from the brain stem to the abdomen and controls unconscious body processes like heart rate and food digestion.  The research continues stating there is yet other evidence supporting this.  People with PD often suffer from digestive problems such as constipation.  These issues often start decades before they develop the disease. In addition, other studies have shown that people who will later develop Parkinson’s disease have a special protein.  Experts believe this protein plays a key role in Parkinson’s disease in their gut.  The research suggests that the connection lies with the vagus nerve, although they do not understand how or why.  The study is also clearly states that they need to do more studies to confirm the findings and figure out the how and why.

Our Approach to Digestive Support

While I don’t diagnose or treat any disease (including PD), I can help support healthy digestion.  I provide this support with a specific plan. And this plan usually includes custom dietary changes and the correct enzyme supplements. 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.
