On a daily basis women (and men)
enter my office with the same story.

They went to their medical doctor for a routine check-up, flu symptom, annual physical or life insurance physical had routine bloodwork done and were then told, “Mrs.Jones, you have DIABETES.”  For most patients this is a shock and before they can ask how? or why? this is happening to them, they are leaving the doctors office with 1, 2, 3 or more prescriptions for medications. They may be told to exercise, and lose weight and to go back to see their doctor in 3 months for another blood test. That is how Diabetes is diagnosed and managed today.

The average diabetic takes all of their medications,
tries to lose weight, diet and exercise,

despite the chronic tiredness and lack of energy with no success in losing weight nor getting their blood sugars under control.  With all of this effort, these people continue to rely on the same drugs and often require more and more  over time. This cycle goes on for YEARS or DECADES with no end in sight and a LIFETIME of prescription medications that seem to being increasing in numbers upon every doctors visit. In addition, more and more health complications arise resulting in more drugs, more procedures and more doctors visits….just to remain Diabetic.

Impressive Evidence Suggests Modern Medicine
May Be Behind the Times in Treatment of Diabetes.

One Thing Is Clear: The U.S. Does Not Have A Shortage Of Diabetes Drugs!

The question is:
what do these diabetic drugs do to the body
and why do Type 2 Diabetics never GET WELL?

Is this your story or the story of someone you know and love??

Many diabetics just like you, in Pennsylvania and across the U.S., have said “enough” and in turn have reversed their diabetes by no longer accepting the mantra of the best that can be done is to choke down one drug after another in hopes of only slowing down the inevitable progression of diabetes.

They are able to do this and take back control of their health, and life, by completely changing the way they look at their condition with the help of a practitioner like  me who helps unravel their metabolic and physiologic imbalances and syndromes that got them in this position in the first place!

Many diabetics have virtually been able to walk away from diabetes:

• Reducing and eliminating drugs
• Reducing and eliminating insulin injections
• Losing weight without exercise
• Exploding energy levels
• And many are even reversing their diabetes

Discover how you too may be able to reverse your diabetes
and put your health on a totally new trajectory.
