Chronic Inflammation and the Unifying Theory of Chronic Diseases: American Medicine Today Explores

Although I was trained, like most doctors, to view heart disease and prostate cancer and alzheimer's disease and high blood pressure and high cholesterol as being fundamentally different from each other, they're really different manifestations of the same underlying disease processes: chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, changes in the microbiome, changes in gene expression, changes in telomeres and so on.
In the latest episode of American Medicine Today, presented by The Bonati Spine Institute, the hosts delve into the unifying theory of chronic diseases. Dr. Alfred Bonati, Kimberly Bermel, and Ethan Youker discuss how chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, changes in the microbiome, gene expression, and telomeres are all linked to various chronic illnesses. They also explore the impact of stress on our overall health, offering techniques such as stretching, breathing, meditation, and imagery to help manage it.
Additionally, the hosts discuss the role of diet in chronic diseases and how a plant-based diet can positively impact both our health and the environment. The episode also features a personal story of recovery, highlighting the importance of seeking out proper medical care. The hosts touch on political and social issues in healthcare and the impact they have on individuals. The episode is both informative and thought-provoking, encouraging listeners to take a more holistic approach to their health and well-being.
Listen to the full episode now on and learn how to manage stress, improve your diet, and take control of your health.
