Can you reverse diabetes? Is it for real?
Yes, and YES!
Reversing diabetes, putting it into remission, preventing its horrible complications (neuropathy, amputation, blindness, kidney failure) is possible. But don't just believe me.... CNN said so. WebMD said so. Diabetes Today magazine said so. What about this article in the Huffington Post - it says so, too.
If you're prediabetic (most don't even know they are, so bravo to you if you know where your health status is at), now is the perfect time to take control of your health - typically the earlier you start, the faster you heal.
But if this out-of-control epidemic is reversible and preventable...
Why hasn't your doctor told you so?
When the diet and exercise advice you received from your medical team is not enough, you need a new approach.
If you're a diabetic, ask yourself this:
Now, ask your doctor who prescribed you these medications "how many patients have you gotten OFF medications because their diabetes status got BETTER?"
WHY did you develop diabetes? Why do you still have it? Yes, it's a metabolic disorder, specifically in how you process and manage glucose levels, but has anyone done a THOROUGH evaluation to see how your whole body is functioning, where all the problems and deficiencies are, and not focused on your glucose/A1c?
Maybe you are getting some additional labs because of the side effects of your medications and the progression of your diabetes, but has anyone really analyzed your labs as a whole, and not focused on each individual part?
Has anyone assessed your toxicity burden and whether your body adequately handles the environmental toxins we are all hit with on a daily basis? Not all functional medicine providers seek out toxins, but we do that! See how many cases were helped by reducing toxicity in these SBN successes.
If you are worried about your diabetes and are looking for the next steps for you, we're here for you.
If you have Type 1 diabetes and you think there's no help for you....think again! These same principles - getting functionally tested and addressing nutritional deficiencies - can help you, too! While you will never be completely off insulin, you can typically reduce the amount of insulin you need and prevent diabetic complications by following our program.
