In the United States, almost one-third of the population lives with a chronic disease such as osteoarthritis, asthma, GERD and heartburn, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and anxiety/depression and mood disorders. Most chronic conditions are self-induced and are a product of lifestyles and the result of an imbalance of chemicals that our own bodies produce.
The good news is that Your Inner Pharmacy offers realistic options that can give a person five, ten, even twenty more years of quality time that can delay, postpone, and often minimize the onset of chronic disease. By devoting ten percent of leisure time to healthy aging activities (roughly five hours a week), a person can affect the progression of these preventable chronic diseases.
