What is a chronic disease?

Chronic diseases generally have no cure and last for years or your entire life. Chronic diseases usually require ongoing medical oversight and may limit your daily activities.

Conventional medicine support for chronic disease usually involves pharmaceuticals and invasive treatments. At Alma Vida, you find natural solutions for the treatment of chronic diseases.

Dr. Rich-Mazzeo, DNP, APRN and her team provides support for chronic diseases, including:

  • Autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Hormone Imbalances
  • Fatty liver
  • Pancreatitis
  • Digestive Problems

She considers the lifestyle, environmental, social, and genetic factors that contribute to chronic illness. By focusing on the five pillars of health— nutrition, mentorship, detoxification, hormones, and physical fitness—you can help improve symptoms by addressing the underlying conditions contributing to the progression of the disease.

What causes chronic disease?

Lifestyle factors are a major contributor to chronic disease. This is how the health coaching offered at Alma Vida can help. Dr. Rich-Mazzeo and her team can help you improve contributing issues like: 

  • Poor nutrition
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Excessive alcohol use

Dr. Rich-Mazzeo can also determine if an overload of toxins is preventing your body from functioning as it should. Hormone imbalances can also exacerbate symptoms of chronic disease.
