Chronic Disease


Nowhere is the need for an integrative approach more apparent than in the management of chronic illness. We are a synthesis of many systems all working together, and when one or more systems become diseased, all of the others will be stressed as well. From physical challenges, to the challenges of everyday living, to a satisfying quality of life, we have to go past seeing that illness in isolation, and strive to understand and nurture the person who is living with a chronic illness.

Experience Counts

The Stram Center has become a beacon to those dealing with long term illness. Patients who have been from one specialist to the next for years, and have accumulated lists of medications, but have never felt as if their entire person and circumstances have been addressed in an effective and compassionate manner. Our mission is to serve these individuals with the kind of time, experience and knowledge that are necessary to provide the best care possible.

Who We Serve

We have seen a great diversity of chronic illness at the Stram Center, including the common, and the very rare. As many illnesses we have seen, our focus on the whole person never changes. Some examples of chronic illness seen at the Center include:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Arthritis
  • Irritable Bowel Disease
  • Migraines and Headaches
  • Male and Female Reproductive Health
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Chronic Pain
  • Cancer and Cancer Recovery Management

Our Special Team Approach to Your Health Care
