Can we reverse chronic disease? Yes, and everybody ought to know this!
"Western disease" is a term sometimes given to certain diseases and other health conditions which are commonly thought to be a result of increasing wealth in a society.
Examples of Western diseases include mostly chronic disease (non communicable) and other health conditions for which lifestyles and societal conditions associated with economic growth are believed to be a risk factor.
Such diseases include but are not limited to:
type 2 diabetes
asthma and COPD
hypertension and high cholesterol
arthritis and gout
Crohn’s, IBS, and other digestive disorders
Development of such health conditions is a sign that the body is out of balance. That homeostasis has been interrupted.
According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), factors associated with chronic diseases include:
less physical exercise
higher consumption of refined vegetable oils
higher consumption of high sugar-containing food
higher consumption of meat and dairy products
higher consumption of refined flours and products made from them
higher consumption of foods which are processed, cooked, and commercially provided
greater use of alcohol and tobacco
In order to possibly reverse or manage disease, we must first consider the reason for the imbalance. The underlying cause. Once that is established, we can set a course of action to improve health.
The human body is designed to be well. It's meant to function at an optimal level, and, given the right fuel, it will provide us with years and years of good health.
Illness and disease is not normal...although, today, it's all too common.
No one wants to be diagnosed with an illness, however, there is some good news. Research has shown that with a change in lifestyle, many symptoms related to the condition or illness can be reduced, or, in many cases, can disappear altogether!
This is indeed great news!
If you're struggling with a health condition, I urge you to consider your options. Learn more, ask questions, and perhaps try a different approach. It's worth exploring the possibility of averting the expected outcome of your diagnosis.
