the chronic illness grocery list for disease maintenance (and prevention)

For those of us who live, breathe, and sleep the daily pains and burdens of living with a chronic illness, it’s no biggie to naturally want to delve into any updates on medicine, science, and statistics regarding our conditions. Sometimes however, we forget that a HUGE part of the world outside of our circle of sufferers actually has absolutely no idea of the challenges and struggles that having a chronic illness comes with.

This infographic is a helpful, at-a-glance vat of facts that non-sufferers should know.

Bottom line: chronic illness affect more of the people around you than you may realize. And sadly, the population is increasing by the year. By 2030, it is estimated that almost half of the U.S. population will be affected by having a chronic disease. That’s scary, isn’t it?

Pain and disease management is so necessary. Incorporating these into your daily diet is also important if you are a non-sufferer; it can aid in preventing chronic illness (strengthen your immune system, increase healthy blood circulation, etc.)
