We Help People to Lose Weight and Reduce Insulin Resistance
Book in for a FREE Health Consultation today.
Diabetes is a modern epidemic affecting around 25% of the population over 25.
If not halted or reversed, diabetes can lead to serious health problems including heart disease, kidney disease, eye disease, neuropathy, foot damage, skin conditions and Alzheimer’s.
Diabetes rates are increasing. In 1995 56.3% of Australians over 25 years of age were overweight or obese. In 2015 the figure was 63.4%. 25% of children aged 5-17 are overweight.
The number of diabetics in Australia are forecast to increase from 1.5M in 2015 to 3M in 2025.
Countries that never had a significant diabetes problem are now battling with the disease – even China now has over 100 million diabetics. Modern diets, lifestyle and medications are simply not dealing with the issue.
Almost all treatments focus on ‘managing’ the disease. Medications such as Metformin and Insulin injections are routinely used by diabetics to slow the progress of the disease. Diabetes is a progressive disease – that is it will progressively get worse even though we might be able to slow it down a bit.
Another form of treatment is bariatric surgery (gastric bypass, gastric banding, etc…). Complications include bowel obstruction, hernias, repeat operation, vomiting, hypoglycaemia and difficulty swallowing a range of common foods.
The current dietary recommendations have not address the progression of the disease. If it did then pre-diabetics would not become diabetics and the disease would not progress at the rate it does.
There is clearly something wrong with how we are managing the disease.
If the problem is insulin resistance (caused by too much insulin), then the logical answer is to reduce insulin levels (not increase them) and reduce glucose levels in the bloodstream.
Our Diabetes Prevention Program utilises acupuncture, Chinese herbs and aims to help:
with the overall aim of reducing your natural blood glucose levels and reducing or eliminating the need for diabetes medication.
As treatment progresses we aim to help you to:
…all by using acupuncture and Chinese herbs to improve your digestion and by teaching you how to eat correctly to reduce and stabilise your blood glucose and insulin levels.
Note: benefits vary person to person.
