Common Chronic Medical Conditions

What you put on your plate is as important as breathing.

What you put on your plate is as important as breathing.

Studies indicate that asthma and allergies are second only to lower back pain in the United States of America.  There are many symptoms, but they are only outward manifestations of something much more serious and internal.  Mostly people are concerned with the discomforts that these symptoms cause.

Having an allergy is one of the major signs of toxic build-up in your Immune system.  So the focus ought to be balancing the Immune System.

What most people do not understand is this:  Digestion is absolutely at the foundation of your health

Keeping your Immune system healthy and strong is vital for your protection from disease.

To strengthen Your Immune System:

1.  Have a Positive Attitude

2.  Eat a diet that consists of fresh raw fruits and vegetables as well as fiber for roughage, for example, wheat bran

3.  Avoid simple carbohydrates–foods processed with refined ingredients such as in pre-packaged foods

4.  Ample Sleep and Relaxation

5.  Moderate Exercise to combat fatigue and stress

The Gut is the Key to Overall Health

Certain medications can irritate or damage the lining of your intestines causing a serious problem such as Leaky Gut:

Antibiotics are one of the biggest offenders and can annihilate your friendly gut flora.

Radiation, chemotherapy steroid drugs, aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen and other NSAIDs can increase intestinal permeability.

Other health issues besides Leaky gut that may show up are:  Parasites, Crohn’s Disease, Celiac Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome–these all are traced to food intolerance.

Is Joint Pain Ruining Your Quality of Life?

How much chronic aches and pains do you suffer from?  

Do you wake up stiff?  

Can you no longer exercise like you used to?

Arthritis means joint inflammation.  There are 100 different types of diseases with symptoms such as stiffness, pain and swelling.

Rheumatoid  can damage other tissues of the body.

Osteoarthritis  stays mainly in the joints.

50% of people in the United States get arthritis by the time they are 60 years old.

To cope with chronic pain, a lot of people just reach for pain medications like ibuprofen, acetaminophen or prescription drugs.  These types of medications only mask the problem — they don’t solve it!  Research has shown that prolonged use of certain drugs, like ibuprofen, actually makes joints and cartilage weaker, and can even cause long-term damage.

Many people turn to natural joint support.  Many products on the market are using sub-clinical doses of inferior ingredients, which makes you end up just wasting your money.  A breakthrough National Institute of Health (NIH) study proves that natural products really do work and are actually more beneficial than painkillers.

The research done by Dr. Alexander Stuart Wheelwright, PhD, a 20th-Century herbal researcher, linked arthritis with a pathogen (Streptacocca and Amoeba).

Because of the many different types of diseases relating to stiffness, pain and swelling — it is difficult to determine a “one-size-fits-all” program.

You are unique!  What might be beneficial for one person may not be so for you.  However, if you would like a consultation with Gerry at Healthy Life Institute, give him a call at 801-893-1190.
