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.
