Diabetes Orange County

Diabetes is currently one of the most common health problems in the United States today and continues to grow at an increasing rate. The Standard American Diet continues to promote blood sugar disorders and likely will continue at this alarming rate. Most all of us know someone with Diabetes and if you know someone close to you with Diabetes than you know how disruptive this disease can be in a person’s life. Diabetes impairs all aspects of human physiology. It increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, cognitive decline, and virtually every other disease.

Diabetes is classified as either type 1 or type 2, and both result in high blood sugar. In type 1 diabetes a person has lost the ability to make insulin because their pancreas is being destroyed by either their own immune system or a virus. A type 2 diabetic eventually loses the ability to make insulin due to poor lifestyle choices, specifically diet.

We take a comprehensive approach that integrates diet, nutrition and fitness with a Functional Medicine approach that seeks to identify and address all the underling factors that caused your Diabetes to develop and progress. We address things like inflammation, toxicity, immune function, digestive function, nutrient levels, and hormone levels such as the Thyroid and Adrenal hormones. By systematically addressing the core imbalances in your health we can not only help you improve blood sugar balance, but also help to improve your overall health and overcome other chronic health problems. The best part is that we do this through without the use of medications.

Type 2 Diabetes is reversible

While their is no “cure” for Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes can be reversed though specific changes in diet and lifestyle. We have helped many Type 2 Diabetics to regain normal blood sugar without medications. People with Type 1 Diabetes will always require the use of insulin to some degree, but in most cases there are other health issues that can be improved.
