Chronic Diseases

MANY CHRONIC DISEASES ARE INFLAMMATORY IN NATURE

Nearly half of all Americans suffer from an inflammatory disorder! 

Medical research tells us that many of the foods we eat, a lack of physical inactivity, and unmanaged stress all contribute to this health epidemic. Yet very few people realize that their unhealthy lifestyle habits leads to such a wide variety of diseases. 

  • Inflammation can be very severe, especially in autoimmune diseases such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and certain forms of cancer. 
  • Other more moderate inflammation states lead to heart disease, diabetes, insulin resistance, and other forms of cancers and arthritis.
  • There are also some diseases that are caused by mild inflammation, such as gingivitis, skin disease (psoriasis and eczema), and allergies.  

All of these diseases and many others appear to have excessive inflammation as the root cause.

Rheumatoid arthritis, as an example, is caused by severe chronic inflammation. Those who have this disease face a powerful immune response. The body is making antibodies that continually attack and damage the synovial membrane of the joints.

MEDICATIONS MAY NOT BE EFFECTIVE

Traditional medicine focuses on developing and prescribing drugs to stop the inflammation process and we now have some very powerful anti-inflammatory drugs. Yet with all of the pharmaceutical agents available, we see very poor effectiveness in stopping the inflammation associated with chronic diseases.

NATURAL METHODS GET RESULTS

Dr. Torelli prefers to educate people on the benefit of adopting a healthy lifestyle in order to treat serious chronic inflammation. When people commit to his natural health strategies, he often sees his patients get much better, often without expensive medications.
