Paul A. Goldberg, M.P.H., D.C., D.A.C.B.N., D.C.B.C.N. “It takes all sorts to make a world” English Proverb You are ill and feeling desperate. Your doctor has labeled your symptoms with an annoying name. You are told it is a chronic illness and you will need a lifetime of drugs and medical supervision just to control the symptoms. It is, after all, your doctor reminds you a chronic disease. A large pit forms in your gut and life takes on a gloom, which follows you day and night. Step back for a moment. You are infinitely different from every other person on the planet including anyone ever given the diagnosis slapped on you. Why should you be labeled in such a way and thrown into one big diagnostic soup? If you allow yourself to be so condemned then your chronic disease will likely remain chronic. There is a more rational alternative. You are an individual with a unique constitution. You need not accept the dismal medical outlook given to millions of chronically ill people labeled with rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, colitis, crohns disease, multiple sclerosis or a slew of other names. As a physician who has worked with chronically ill patients for over 35 years addressing each patient as a totally separate entity I know beyond a doubt that addressing the unique characteristics of each person is essential to the recovery of those with chronic disease problems of all kinds. With each new patient that walks into our clinic I ask myself, “what makes this person different? What factors led to the development of their disease? What actions need to be taken specific to their individual nature to permit recovery?” Unraveling these questions puts each patient with a chronic disease, regardless of their diagnosis, on the best path towards health renewal. Understanding each patient’s biochemical uniqueness is essential to reversing chronic disease and restoring their health.
