Why this program works:
1) Education about the disease process-The more knowledgeable about diabetes a person is, the better they can understand and control how their body responds to the treatment plan. Be an active participant in your own health plan!
2) A personalized meal plan-Every person has different preferences and will be more compliant with a meal plan that is right for them. At the same time, there are some very definite “good” and “bad” foods for diabetics, and it’s important to know the difference.
3) Nutritional supplements or botanical treatments and IV therapy-Recent studies have shown these alternative therapies to be effective in decreasing blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, and decreasing blood sugars, thus reducing potential organ damage.
4) An ongoing monitoring and support program-A key to this diabetes treatment program’s success is the accountability factor. We all tend to stick better with programs that hold us accountable to other people. Also, as the body changes in response to the program, it is essential that medications be monitored and adjusted for the patient’s well being.
