Chronic Diseases - Prevention and Reversing these diseases - our best option for the future!
Reactive Health vs Preventative Health:
Nearly all forms of healthcare can be broken down into one of two different categories: proactive and reactive. Unfortunately, most people focus strictly on reactive healthcare, only visiting the doctor’s office when a problem arises. While this may seem like the best course of action, many health and wellness experts are now stressing the importance of proactive healthcare.
Reactive healthcare involves reacting to an adverse disease, injury, condition or symptom. If you wake up one morning with a fever and body aches, for instance, you may react by visiting the doctor. Depending on the doc’s diagnosis, he or she may prescribe you with antibiotics to help your body fight the infection. Both you and the doctor are reacting to the symptoms.
Proactive healthcare differs from reactive in the sense that action is taking before symptoms manifest. Rather than waiting until you feel the symptoms of the cold or flu virus, you can take a proactive approach towards your health by boosting your immune system with vitamin C, antioxidants, and by drinking plenty of fluids.
Shocking statistics behind chronical illness!
About 90% of health care costs for older people can be attributed to chronic diseases.
Around 80% of people dying from chronic, non-communicable diseases live in the developing world.
The world’s biggest killer is heart disease, responsible for 16% of the world’s total deaths. Since 2000, the largest increase in deaths has been for this disease, rising by more than 2 million to 8.9 million deaths in 2019.
Diabetes has entered the top 10 causes of death, following a significant percentage increase of 70% since 2000. Diabetes is also responsible for the largest rise in male deaths among the top 10, with an 80% increase since 2000.
Kidney diseases have risen from the world’s 13th leading cause of death to the 10th. Mortality has increased from 813 000 in 2000 to 1.3 million in 2019.
2017 Figures indicate a population of 424.9 million people with diabetes worldwide, with an estimate of a 48% increase to 628.6 million people by 2045.
Less than 1% of health care funds are spent on prevention to improve overall health.
Chronic Medication – How does this effect our Health?
Our current medical system treats symptoms as though they are the root causes of diseases and often blames genetics as the cause. With genetics as the “cause”, we feel our hands are tied, and this leads to the handfuls of pills we are getting used to taking each day.
Each one of these pills treats an isolated symptom or disease pathway. Each medication also has a unique side-effect profile and medications often interact with each other. Furthermore, these medications do not actually reverse your disease, so one disease with a few pills may lead to another disease with a few more, until you are left with a long list of medications and diseases.
A new approach to Chronic Diseases:
We are looking at options to consider with regards to health promoting and disease preventing medical interventions. These interventions are proven to reverse disease by specifically targeting the cause of diseases. Reversing diseases is something that is not spoken about much in conventional medicine, although we have had the evidence in peer-reviewed Medical Journals for years. With lifestyle changes and natural health products, those long lists of side -effects, medications, and diseases are replaced with a long list of benefits from improved overall health.
Chronic Diseases linked to each other
New studies published showed that some chronic diseases are associated with others, such as cancer. These studies found that five common chronic diseases are equally as responsible for cancer as the five lifestyle risk factors traditionally associated with cancer and disease. What this means, in a nutshell, is that if you want to prevent cancer, you must live a healthy lifestyle and work on reversing diseases you may already have.
The Cost of Chronic Diseases
Our current healthcare system is unsustainable. Our health expenditures are by far the highest per capita, with poor outcomes. Life-long prescriptions, invasive procedures, and Acute and Emergency Care in Hospitals have become the mainstay of our healthcare. This system comes with inherent health risks and the astronomical costs known to be the leading cause of bankruptcy. Prevention is the only rational solution. Evidence-based, sustainable health care that adds quality.
Let us try treating the cause to heal the body for a change!
