Chronic Diseases have been defined as prolonged illnesses/duration (more than three months), or in other words all the Chronic states of deviation of the organism, from its Normal function. Chronic Diseases include syndromes, physical impairments, deficiencies, disabilities as well as all those pathological conditions that ultimately lead to disease and impairment of a person’s normal physical and mental abilities.
According to statistics, one in two adults will at some point in their lives experience a Chronic Disease, and these diseases are now the leading cause of death, replacing epidemics, infections and the lack of hygiene in the past.
Chronic Diseases – Types, Characteristics
According to the W.H.O., (World Health Organization) for the years 2015-2016, the 4 (four) main types – categories of Chronic Non-Transmitted Diseases, are:
- Cardiovascular Diseases, including Stroke, Heart Failures, Ischemic Heart Diseases, etc.
- Cancers – Malignant Neoplasms
- Chronic Pulmonary Diseases (Chronic Lung Diseases), such as Bronchial Asthma (BA) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Type 2 diabetes mellitus
Other Chronic Diseases, according to the W.H.O. (World Health Organization), are:
- Arterial hypertension
- Arthritis – Osteoarthritis
- Autoimmune Diseases such as (some of the 140 Autoimmune Diseases):
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Crohn’s Disease
- Lupus Erythematosus
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Celiac Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Myasthenia Gravis
- Dementia – Alzheimer’s Disease
- Pervasive Developmental Disorder
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Spectrum Disorders
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Endometriosis in women
- Thyroid Diseases
- Depression and Emotional Disorders
- Obesity and Overweight
- Sleep Apnea
- Chronic Metabolic Disorders
- Chronic Skin Diseases
- Chronic Inflammation and Inflammatory Diseases
- Chronic Hepatitis
- Chronic Kidney Diseases
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Irretable Bowel Syndrome
- Chronic Pain Syndrome
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Chronic Diseases – Causes of Challenge
The causes of major chronic disease epidemics are known. The most important reasons that can be noted are:
Poor nutrition means:
- reduced food intake,
- wrong food intake,
- low nutritional value foods,
- foods so processed that they have lost all their valuable nutrients,
- bad food combination,
- wrong way of feeding,
- dangerous diets.
Reduced sports activities.
Insufficient micronutrients obtained from industrialized foods.
Toxins contained in foods of plant and animal origin.
Water rich in toxic substances.
The reckless and pointless use of drugs.
These causes are expressed through increased blood pressure, elevated glucose levels, abnormal blood lipid levels and obesity. These explain most of the new cases of heart disease, stroke and chronic respiratory disease.
Chronic Diseases – Treatment
It takes a long time for a chronic condition to develop. So the first thing that needs to be done is to have a screening.
There are specialized tests performed that can assess what is really wrong and then to attempt it, by investigating mechanisms at a cellular level, such as specific Metabolites, Neurotransmitters and deficiencies at a molecular level.
In recent years, Medicine has been able to heal damaged tissues, remove diseased cells, reduce inflammation and restore hormonal homeostasis. We offer solutions and hope to people who really need it.
Through specialized diagnostic tests, the Doctor can diagnose precisely the underlying reason(s) for a disease’s occurance and afterwards prescribe an individualized therapeutic protocol that will aim to restor cellular dysfunctions.
