The Silver Lining in Chronic Disease: Many conditions and diseases, including obesity, heart disease and cancer, could perform useful and perhaps even essential roles. They could reflect the body’s attempts to resolve imbalances which could lead to fatal outcomes if left unchecked. This is evidenced by a variety of processes that take place in fat cells, cardiovascular plaque and tutors which eliminate toxic substances and produce essential nutrients.
Understanding these processes provides insight into root causes of chronic disease, and promotes the concept of holistic treatments that work with the body rather than battling against it.
