The Center For Disease Control estimates that 25.8 million U.S. children and adults have diabetes, or about 8.3 percent of the population. Diagnosed cases compose 18.8 of that total, with undiagnosed cases accounting for 7 million. Type II Diabetes sufferers make up 90-95% of that number, and the condition can develop in people of any age. And although it’s generally advised that Type II Diabetes can be managed with exercise and a healthy diet, we at the Tustin Chronic Condition Center look more deeply than that.
Unfortunately, Type II Diabetes is usually brought upon the sufferer by the sufferer.
What do we mean by that?
Simply put, the body’s cells were bombarded by insulin for so long, they finally shut themselves down to allow insulin to come in to your body. Insulin brings glucose into your cells, allowing them to function optimally and provide the body with energy. If you’re experiencing severe fatigue, a lack of glucose getting to the cells is probably the problem.
Insulin-resistant diabetes is completely reversible, and don’t let your doctor tell you any different. Do not let them prescribe medication for you, as this will just make your condition worse.
Type II Diabetes can be managed with small changes to your diet and lifestyle—this means taking personal responsibility for your health. If you start our program, we need a commitment from you that you will help us help you by following our guidelines.
We run the same tests for Type II Diabetics as we do for Type I Diabetics. Why? Because we find many symptoms are affecting both types of diabetes cases. We also put Type II Diabetics on certain nutritional supplementation that allow the receptor sites to open back up and allow the insulin to come in, bringing in the glucose and energy back to your body. Then your body can start functioning normally again.
When your body is resistant to insulin, insulin still flows through your bloodstream, but instead of being used, it builds up and gets converted into lipids or triglycerides. High triglyceride counts translate to high cholesterol, which then causes the build up of plaque in your arteries, which moves you into high blood pressure and arterial sclerosis, which can cause heart attacks, strokes and heart disease—all for something that can be completely reversed without medication.
Does this sound like the solution you’re looking for?
Then you’ve found the right place, and we can help you with this reversal process.
Many Type II Diabetics also suffer from peripheral neuropathy, or in common language, the loss of feeling in your extremities, such as your hands, fingers, feet and toes. We have specific therapies to help rebuild the nerves and return the feeling to these areas. Typically what starts to happen is the feet going numb, and this numbness can lead to balance disorders and accidents like tripping or falling, which is dangerous at any age. All of this is due to the fact that metabolically, your body is very unhealthy—your blood circulation and your nerves are basically starting to die off!
In order to walk normally, your feet have to communicate with your brain, and when this numbness occurs, the brain only “hears” that communication as pain, usually in the form of tingling or “pins and needles” sensations, that can continue all day, and all night.
We combine the neurological and metabolic work with the therapies for the peripheral neuropathy so you’re not suffering from balance disorders and painful tingling and numbness in the hands and feet.
Did you know that if a diabetic receives a cut on the foot, the wounds don’t heal properly? This can lead to severe conditions such as gangrene, which can result in amputation of toes and even feet. We know that no one wants to have a foot amputated because of a condition that is totally reversible. We know that there are sufferers out there who are serious about regaining control of their life, and those are the potential patients we want to work with.
