Adult Onset Diabetes
There has been a great deal of research regarding both the cause and cure of both Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes over the years, including a surprising renewal in research. Generally, Diabetes is considered to be an autoimmune phenomenon that destroys the specific cells in the pancreas responsible for producing insulin. The two different types of diabetes are unique in that Type 1 generally is manifest in childhood and Type 2 generally manifests in adulthood. However, there is a tremendous amount of gray area between the two that at times makes it hard to distinguish which type a person has.
Diabetes is more than just an insulin deficiency; it can also be the human body's resistance to its own insulin. This resistance makes whatever insulin is produced to be less effective. Actually, diabetes can result from insulin being rendered less effective, not effective at all, or sporadically effective/less effective by the body for a variety of reasons. As you may guess, the "sporadically effective/less effective" diabetic is challenging to control because of sugar spiking as well as low blood sugars, sometimes for no apparent reason.
What natural treatment options are there for good Diabetic health?
There are simply some things that cannot be controlled or cured, but there are some important behaviors that can cure or make a tremendous difference in diabetes. Even if diet, exercise and weight loss cannot eliminate the disease, when used together they dramatically help reduce the intensity of diabetes, as well as the amount insulin and medication required to treat diabetes in almost all cases.
Diet and exercise is not the only way to improve diabetes. Changing behaviors and attitude is a serious pursuit and can be accomplished with the support of our experienced mind-body focused staff.
Our Alternative Treatment
At The Bridge Recovery Center, we do not place any guest on a diet as extreme as a post gastric bypass surgery diet, but we do provide a very natural effective diet and exercise program that will help improve this condition. You will work with our personal trainers, therapists, chefs and other staff to make sure your stay is as effective as possible. Our physician and team are well-versed in diabetes and will provide excellent information and support throughout your stay.
There is no reason you cannot function well and do virtually anything you want to do if you manage your diabetes properly. There are type 2 and type 1 diabetic athletes in almost every professional sport and at every level of business and politics. We ask only that you come with an open mind, a willingness to work, and you could be able to take a lot more of your diabetic medication home with you!
Help with or Reversal of Adult Onset Diabetes
For those who have contracted Adult Onset Diabetes, there is hope to manage or completely reverse your condition. We have had great success in this area with the majority being dramatically reduced or insulin free by the time they leave the program.
Since diabetes carries some complications, you will be working closely with our doctor(s) and in many cases yours as well. If there was a time in your adult life that your body was managing without insulin, you may still have the potential. Proper diet, exercise, sleep, and other techniques are used to manage or eliminate this potentially debilitating condition. You will also be given appropriate tools and taught how to integrate and continue the program when you return home.
Get your recovery started and call now 877-885-9567. We can't help until you come to the facility and learn how to become your own diabetic specialist and how to manage your unique system.
