About Chronic Disease
There is more than one type of disease in the world. First there is Infectious and contagious disease and then there is Chronic Disease. They are not the same and have different causes.
Disease Definition: A disorder of structure or function in a human, animal, or plant, especially one that produces specific symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury.
Infectious Disease Definition: Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Many organisms live in and on our bodies. They're normally harmless or even helpful, but under certain conditions, some organisms may cause disease. Some infectious diseases can be passed from person to person.
Communicable Disease Definition: A disease that is transmitted through direct contact with an infected individual or indirectly through a vector. Also called contagious disease .
Chronic Disease Definition: A chronic disease is one lasting 3 months or more, by the definition of the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics. Chronic diseases generally cannot be prevented by vaccines or cured by medication, nor do they just disappear.
This website is based entirely about chronic disease. Prior to the establishment of Functional Health and Medicine, chronic disease was treated by your conventional medical doctor. Today that is no longer the case. While your conventional doctor is still treating chronic disease it demands a different approach and is no longer the domain of the conventional medical doctor alone as it does not respond to drugs, surgery or chemo as the causes are completely different. The conventional medical doctor will eventually have to be trained by the Institute of Functional Medicine or the Functional Medicine University in order to handle chronic disease.
We work in conjunction with a very large group of Medical & Health Professionals mostly from the USA. They have created what they call Summits. A Summit is a set of Video and separate Audio presentations with transcripts and bonuses and more. The Summit is composed of an average of 30 healthcare and medical professionals who provide you with professional advice on reversing the process of disease. You can view the list of Summits on this website at SUMMITS They however charge for the purchase of each summit. But the information you receive is beyond excellent. Each doctor spends around an hour with you providing you with education and knowledge never before known.
With the knowledge gained you can help yourself and family and friends and maybe go to your social club and show them and you will save by not having to go to doctors for the rest of your life. Absenteeism in business costs a fortune and with the Functional Health Programs you can educate your employees on staying healthy. There is just no end to the benefits provided. Medical Doctors all over the world should obtain this information to better help their patients. It should also be available to universities and governments. There are more than a hundred chronic diseases and the full list can be obtained at the following link: Autoimmune List
The Summits contain the real answers to all the chronic diseases around the world. And we do have an Epidemic or should we say Pandemic of chronic diseases world-wide affecting more than 2.3 billion people. Most people think these diseases, ranging from headaches and migraine to cancer, autism, Alzheimer's & dementia and many more. Even children's and women's diseases are covered. IT IS THE FUTERE OF MEDICINE!
