Unraveling Chronic Illness
The rate of chronic diseases has increased 2-10x since the 1980. Today 40% of children have a chronic illness. 60% of adults 18-65 and 90% of adults over 65 have a chronic illness and these numbers are growing.
Today, diseases are defined by their symptoms rather than their cause, leading to therapies that are ineffective for treatment reversal.
We are thought leaders and internationally known experts in the fields of complex chronic illness and health optimization. Our approach includes functional medicine as the foundation, but our long standing experience treating complex chronic illness and our exploration of new modalities sets us apart.
The most important thing is if you’ve been ill for a long time, do not give up hope. These are difficult illnesses, but so many people do get better because there are so many different reasons that you can wind up with chronic illness. Don’t give up because somebody you know didn’t get better. There are so many pieces that can allow the body to enter the healing cycle and go back to normal.
