The global shift from acute to chronic disease requires a transformation in how we promote health and treat disease. The diseases that now challenge our quality of life and our health care systems are quite different than they were 50 or even 20 years ago. As we live longer, the “disease burden” on society is now caused more by injuries and chronic diseases such as musculoskeletal disorders, and mental health conditions.
Healthy Aging is the ultimate success and comes first from maintaining health throughout life. The early identification and successful treatment of disease only come into the picture when your inner pharmacy breaks down and is no longer able to maintain the healthy normal function of your body. It is much more efficient and effective to restore and maintain health than it is to treat disease.
