Dr. Steve Schwartz

Inflammation by definition is a protective tissue response to injury or destruction of tissues, which serves to destroy, dilute, or wall off both the injurious agent and the injured tissues.  A chronic condition is anything that is persistent, long standing or recurring. Chronic inflammation is a process of incomplete healing that is recurring, persistent or long standing.  This classification of disease includes a laundry list of today’s most common health conditions.  Things like Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Asthma, Allergies, Arthritis, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer, and Parkinson’s disease are all examples of chronic inflammatory conditions. Even disorders like Obesity and Depression can be linked to chronic inflammation.  According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), 7 out of 10 deaths of Americans is due to chronic disease with  heart disease, cancer, and stroke accounting for  more than 50% of all yearly deaths. Chronic illness is not just limited to adults.  Common childhood conditions like Autism, ADD/ADHD, Allergies and chronic respiratory illness and obesity are all signs of chronic inflammation.      1 in 88 children are diagnosed as Autistic which is about double of what the incidence documented in 2000.

These are mind blowing statistics with incidences increasing every year.  The good news is that chronic inflammatory conditions can be effectively treated using natural methods and can be managed and even reversed by life style and dietary changes.  Typically, patients do not know where to turn when a chronic disease occurs.   Symptomatic medications are always an option to manage symptoms, but the underlying root cause will still persists and that root cause is what needs to be addressed in order to manifest long term correction and healing.  Studies show that long term symptom suppressive therapy can lead to other chronic conditions in other tissues and organs down the road.  This is why it is so important to take a more “root cause” approach when dealing with any kind of chronic disease.  One thing is for sure.  There is something causing the disease state.  That is a fact.  To simply ignore the root cause and treat symptoms only, may result in the patient feeling better in the short term, but can lead to organ toxicity from side effects of the medication to the development of other diseases as a compensatory mechanism of the root cause not ever being appropriately addressed in the first place.

There are so many different kinds of chronic inflammatory diseases, but the process is the same for all of them.  There always is an inflammatory trigger targeting a specific organ or tissue.   These organs or tissues tend to attract pathology due to some kind of unresolved physical, emotional, chemical, or environmental trauma.  This is the anchor for the disease state.  This anchor then becomes perpetuated due to chronic infection, toxicity and cellular memory imprinting over time.  This is what creates long term illness that is so difficult to treat.

As confusing as this process sounds, there are standard triggers that cause chronic inflammation in the body.  These triggers are effectively treated using specialized technologies and nutrition offered exclusively in the Vail Valley at the Vail Vitality Center by Dr. Steven Schwartz, DC.

 Dr. Schwartz has been specializing in the treatment of chronic disease, chronic pain and human performance for nearly 15 years using bio-energetic techniques, advanced laser and biofeedback technologies.  Dr. Schwartz is a published author, public speaker, and area expert on the topic of chronic disease and bio-energetic medicine.  As part of the Vail Vitality Center Speakers Series, Dr. Steven Schwartz will be presenting a 90 minute lecture discussing the specific triggers that cause chronic illness and supportive natural treatments.
