Diabetes – Type II

Diabetes is definitely not a disease to be taken lightly. A condition defined by insulin resistance and not elevated blood sugar, as most people would have you believe, Diabetes is completely reversible with proper lifestyle and dietary changes. Simple strategies to initially get blood sugar levels normalized and long term strategies to improve insulin sensitivity can make huge differences in health outcomes with very little work.

The biggest concerns arising from a diagnosis of diabetes are the long-term consequences to your health when people rely on pharmaceutical drug management of blood sugar alone. Although metformin is a reasonable initial treatment to get your diabetes under control, all other pharmaceutical drugs to treat type 2 diabetes will actually make the condition worse the longer these treatments are in use.

As time goes on, Diabetes will increase your risk of heart disease and bring on fatal and non-fatal heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular events 15 years earlier than in those without diabetes. Diabetes exponentially increases the risk of other serious diseases, one of which is Alzheimer’s disease.

Diabetes leads to numerous other health complications, including:

  • Cancer
  • Heart disease and stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Blindness
  • Kidney disease
  • Nervous system disease
  • Amputations
  • Dental disease
  • Pregnancy complications

Type 2 diabetes is virtually 100 percent preventable, and most people can successfully reverse the condition without any drug intervention at all. The problem is that the conventional advice for preventing and managing this disease are incorrect. Please consider alternative care for yourself or someone you know diagnosed with Diabetes. Westcoast Integrative Health offers a variety of treatment options for both prevention and reversing Diabetes.
