Chronic Diseases Q & A

What are chronic diseases?

Chronic diseases are those that continue for a protracted period. Chronic diseases don't have a cure, but with careful medical management, you can often control chronic disease and greatly improve your health and bodywide wellness. Dr. Agbeyomi at Lifeguide Healthcare helps to reverse chronic disease through innovative functional medicine treatment plans. 

What are the most common chronic diseases?

Some of the most common chronic diseases include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Thyroid disease
  • Autoimmune disorders (e.g., multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Obesity
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Insomnia

Chronic illnesses can cause discomfort, pain, exhaustion, poor mobility, mental health decline, and other bodywide problems. Most chronic illnesses get worse over time if you don’t seek treatment.

In some cases, chronic diseases can even kill you. For example, if you don't treat Type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure, the condition could worsen until you die from complications like a stroke or heart attack. 

What treatments help chronic diseases?

Chronic diseases are very treatable — they're even often reversible if you take steps to manage the disease in its early stages. Dr. Agbeyomi at Lifeguide Healthcare takes a functional medicine approach to chronic diseases. 

The traditional medical approach generally involves reducing disease flare-ups and managing troublesome symptoms. Although this approach certainly offers relief, it doesn't improve your health or address the "why" of your disease. 

Functional medicine looks for the underlying cause of your chronic disease and seeks to correct that problem. By resolving the problem with your body and restoring normal function, you may reverse your disease. Symptom relief is a natural side-effect!

How does treatment for chronic diseases work?

At Lifeguide Healthcare, you receive a customized treatment plan after a thorough health assessment. Your care commonly includes various approaches, such as weight loss, intravenous (IV) therapy, Chinese herbs, alternative pain therapy, detoxification, and other natural approaches.

With your chronic disease treatment at Lifeguide Healthcare, you get invaluable support and guidance. The functional medicine approach improves not only your chronic disease symptoms but also your systemic wellness for the long term.
