Management of chronic diseases is a medical euphemism. It
is not curing disease, but controlling it with the aid of
suppressive drugs. This type of response to disease halts any
progress towards healing. It serves only to make the patient
more comfortable, while allowing him to progress to the
degenerative stage, postponing the day of reckoning. Chronic
conditions denied proper care will inevitably regress into ever
greater chronic illnesses until they become degenerative.
