More than 45% of the American population suffers from at least one chronic disorder, as reported by Partnership To Fight Chronic Disease. They also report that out of every 10 deaths in the United States, seven are caused by a chronic disease. This equals more than 1.7 million deaths in the United States each year due to chronic diseases. Patients suffering from a chronic disorder also account for more than 80% of hospitalizations and more than 90% of prescriptions filled by a doctor accounts for patients with a chronic disease. In 2005 alone, more than $2 trillion was spent on health care for these patients.
Types of Chronic Disorders
There are numerous types of chronic disorders. These disorders can usually not be cured, but can be treated successfully when the condition is diagnosed in an early stage. There are cases where patients suffer from more than one chronic disorder as well. This situation is referred to as multimorbidity. The most commonly diagnosed chronic illnesses include:
- Heart disease
- Oral health conditions
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Lou Gehrig’s disease
- Cystic fibrosis
- Eating disorders
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSD)
- Tobacco-related conditions
Causes of Chronic Disorders
There are many causes for chronic disorders, but it is believed that most of these disorders can be avoided by adjusting to a healthier lifestyle. In the year 2011, a study confirmed that 76% of patients aged 18 and older does not meet the recommended amount of muscle-strengthening physical activity. The study also confirmed that almost half of all adults within the United States have at least one risk that could lead to a stroke or heart disease, such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Smoking and alcohol abuse is also a known factor that can lead to chronic disorders. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately 20% of Americans smoke cigarettes. They also report that cigarette smoking is the cause of around 480,000 deaths every year. Alcohol, on the other hand, is also responsible for more than 80,000 deaths each year. More than 50% of individuals in the United States who uses alcohol reported that they binge drink about four times each month.
Symptoms of Chronic Disorders
Every type of chronic disorder has its own causes and symptoms, but overall there are a few shared symptoms that are experienced in most of the diagnosable chronic conditions. A large number of these conditions causes fatigue in the patient, which makes them feel weak and tired throughout the day. Pain is also a common ailment associated with these conditions and can occur in any part of the body that is effected by the specific disorder. Depression is also closely associated with chronic diseases. WebMD reports that up to 65% of patients who suffered a heart attack also suffer from depression. They also report that 40% of patients with Parkinson’s disease and up to 54% of patients suffering from chronic pain also has depression.
Different diseases have different types of treatment options. Treatment usually starts with a physical exam conducted by a healthcare professional. A doctor can analyze and determine the condition a patient is suffering from and can then move forward to setting up a treatment plan. Treatment plans almost always include prescription medicine that the patient should administer for a certain time period. Over-the-counter drugs may also be recommended to the patient. Should the condition be too severe to treat with medication, surgery might be suggested in order to rectify the problem.
Many patients have turned toward bioresonance therapy in search of a cure for their chronic disorders. While some of these diseases cannot be cured, bioresonance therapy provides an effective way of identifying allergens within the body and uses the body’s own healing powers to initiate a healing process on areas affected by the disorder. After diagnosing and identifying the problem areas, the healthcare professional can configure the appropriate settings to treat and clear any problems found, which can help relief the symptoms experienced due to the chronic disorder.
Bioresonance therapy was recently studied on a group of 300 children that suffered from asthma. Out of the 300 participants, a total of 52.5% had a significant decrease in symptoms associated with asthma. Furthermore, many of these participants had allergy problems. A total of 32.8% of the participants also had a significant decrease in allergy symptoms.
With multiple different types of chronic disorders identified and millions of individuals suffering from these conditions, seeking medical assistance when symptoms are experienced is essential. When these conditions are identified in an early stage, they can be treated more effectively. Treatment options may include medication and surgery, as well as a few bioresonance therapy sessions in order to relief the symptoms.
