Chronic disease is a very broad spectrum health term. At. St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center, we want to break it down for you. Chronic means that it is a long-term condition. It means that it is not new and those that are dealing with a chronic disease have likely been doing it for a long time. Now, disease can mean a variety of things. Most commonly, we hear people talking about heart disease, different cancers, diabetes, arthritis, mental illnesses, and other musculoskeletal issues. So when we say that we help to treat chronic diseases, we really mean we can help treat a multitude of diseases that you may have been suffering from for a very long time. At St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center, we want you to know that we are here to help you with all of your ailments and problems. Serving East St. Paul, South St. Paul, and all the other St. Paul’s in between, we are here to help.
The Issue of Modern Medicine
Most of the time when someone is diagnosed with a chronic disease, let’s say diabetes, for example, doctors will explain to them how their lifestyle needs to change and send them on with a nice little pamphlet. Then when they come back in 8 weeks to recheck their blood sugar, nothing has changed. So that’s when we stop doing things for ourselves and introduce drug therapy as a way to control the disease while we continue on with the same lifestyle as before. The only problem with that route is that ultimately, it is only a temporary fix to a larger problem. Modern medicine has begun focusing more on the disease than the actual patient. At St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center, we want to focus on the patient so that we can treat the disease.
