You are not alone…
Nearly 24 million Americans have diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association. Another 57 million have pre-diabetes, a condition that puts them at risk for type 2 diabetes. The number of people with diabetes is growing at an alarming rate. The high blood sugar characteristic of diabetes causes damage to blood vessels and organs. Patients with diabetes are at increased risk for heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, and blindness.
Conventional medicine has its place…
Conventional medicines can be lifesaving in emergency situations and can control symptoms for many people. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have serious side effects that make their use undesirable.
You do have options…
Many people do not realize there are options in addition to conventional medicine that will actually make them better. By addressing the underlying causes of diabetes, patients experience reductions in symptoms, improvements in overall health, and reduced dependence on medications.
There is hope…

What do you do for patients with diabetes?
There are two types of diabetes. In type 1, the body is unable to make insulin, a hormone necessary for blood sugar regulation. We help type 1 diabetics control their blood sugar better using diet and awareness of the insulin-sugar relationship. We also use classical homeopathy to improve overall health.
In type 2 diabetes, the body makes insulin, at least to some degree. But the cells throughout the body are not adequately sensitive to the insulin. It is possible to reverse type 2 diabetes. Our treatments generally involve adopting a blood sugar-stabilizing diet, losing weight, and improving fitness. These, along with classical homeopathy and nutritional supplements, increase insulin sensitivity, improving blood sugar control.
Each patient’s plan is individualized – we have never found a “one size fits all” approach to be useful for the majority of people. We spend two to three hours with an adult patient on the first visit to make sure we understand very thoroughly what is going on in your body. We also spend time in follow up visits to make sure that healing is progressing as well as possible.
Homeopathy is part of the name of our practice because we believe so strongly in its power to cure disease. Homeopathic care involves the thorough evaluation of each patient's exact symptoms. A single remedy is chosen that matches the subtleties of each case of disease. The remedy given restores balance to the many systems of the body that keep us well. [Read more about homeopathy.]
Diet is critical to the treatment and management of diabetes. We focus on establishing a diet that reduces and stabilizes blood sugar, and we help you identify how insulin interacts with your food to affect your blood sugar. We help type 2 diabetics establish a blood sugar-stabilizing diet, lose weight, and improve insuling sensitivity.
Depending on your exact condition, we may recommend one or more nutritional supplements. These will help to improve insulin sensitivity and increase antioxidant status in the body. Antioxidants help reduce the damage to the body caused by free radicals and high blood sugar. We use supplements that have strong support in the medical literature.

Conventional medicines can be lifesaving in emergency situations and can control symptoms in many people. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have serious side effects that make their use undesirable.

Diabetes is a condition that is controlled with permanent lifestyle changes. We will generally be able to get you on track in between four and eight visits. After that, we will follow up periodically to make sure you staty healthy and continue to incorporate healthy lifestyle. Visits may be weekly or bi-weekly at first, becoming less frequent as your health improves. Follow up visits will last 45 minutes to one hour, as they involve coaching and counseling as well as homeopathy.
Supplements may be required at an additional cost. We try to keep supplements to a minimum, but our patients typically spend between $25 and $75 per month on supplements.
