Chronic Illness is a SERIOUS concern...
The evidence clearly shows that by far, the highest proportion of this ever-increasing burden is seen in the incidence of chronic illness, disease or pre-cursor ‘syndromes’.
The traditional responses of the medical system – medication, surgery and radiation have not been successful in changing this ever-increasing burden. Despite these approaches, chronic illness has sharply risen over recent history.
If this situation is going to change, our society needs to start doing something differently.
If you understand the following 5 physiological ‘pillars’ of chronic illness, and how they interact with each other to drive and maintain chronic disease, it can very much change how you see disease and what you feel you can do about it.
If you also understand the way that chiropractic, health and wellness coaching and lifestyle change can address and reverse them, remarkable change can result.
The FIVE physiological 'pillars' of Chronic Illness
The chronic production and release of stress hormones (Adrenaline & Cortisol)
Which then cause the four remaining adaptive responses by the body:
This is described in further detail in the following article relating to the impact of stress: click here
Due to a decrease of insulin receptors on cell membrane surfaces
(a systemic 'pro-inflammatory' state)
Underlying almost EVERY chronic illness – including pain, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s to name just a few
Decreased production & release of
Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin
(and other disordered liver function)
Down-regulated Immune Function
The combined effects of these 5 pillars...
These 5 pillars combined lead to all of the following changes to your physiology; in turn the result is changes to many of the ‘markers’ you test for in medical assessments (such as blood tests) or indicators of risk for particular disease states:
Health and Wellness Coaching (one of our services) is the perfect pathway to begin this journey.
Chiropractic care can begin to normalise or counteract some of the impact of this lifestyle and environmental stress too!
