Alternative Diabetes Treatment

Diabetes is affecting this country in epidemic proportions. If you’re one of the 24 million Americans living with diabetes, it is important that you get this condition under control, for it is a leading cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attack, and amputation.

Physicians are quick to prescribe drugs for diabetes. Although these medications do lower blood sugar, they have adverse consequences on the cardiovascular system. Some of the drugs actually increase the risk of heart attack, and insulin is associated with significant weight gain, which makes blood sugar control even more difficult.

The Whitaker Wellness approach to treating diabetes is twofold. First, we help patients control blood sugar with dietexerciseweight loss, and targeted nutritional supplements. And second, we help them reduce the risk and severity of complications with innovative therapies that are overlooked by conventional medicine. These natural treatments are very effective in reducing and often eliminating the need for drugs in patients with type 2 diabetes. Although patients with type 1 diabetes cannot expect to get off medication altogether, their insulin requirements can be reduced and, most important, their risk of complications significantly decreased.

We strongly suggest that all patients with diabetes enroll in our one-, two-, or three-week Back to Health Program. During your treatment at the clinic, we closely monitor your blood sugar as you reduce/replace diabetic drugs with safe, natural therapies.

Our Drug-Free Approach

Supplements, Not Drugs
A number of natural agents have powerful blood sugar-lowering effects. Your Whitaker Wellness physician will prescribe an intensive program of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other supplements that, along with lifestyle changes, have allowed many of our patients with type 2 diabetes to reduce or discontinue their medications. Your personalized nutrient program will also include supplements that help stave off the many potential complications that accompany this disease. Depending on your individualized needs, you may also be treated with IV vitamins and minerals to shore up your nutritional status.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy 
hbot-lgThe leading cause of lower limb amputations in this country is diabetes, and we have saved many a limb with specialized treatments that dramatically accelerate wound healing. One is hyperbaric oxygen therapy. This unique therapy literally floods the cells with oxygen, facilitating healing and killing bacteria that thrive in oxygen-poor environments.

Chelation, Infrared Light, and Microcurrent
Another successful treatment we use is EDTA chelation therapy. Chelation is an intravenous therapy that removes toxic metals and mineral buildup from the arteries, restoring their health and improving blood flow. As injured blood vessels receive a fresh supply of oxygen and nutrients, healing begins. Infrared light therapy and microcurrent therapy have also proven effective at increasing circulation, facilitating healing, and relieving the pain caused by diabetic neuropathy.

Help for Other Complications of Diabetes 
Many of our patients who are living with diabetes suffer with painful neuropathy of the legs and feet. Infrared light therapy and microcurrent therapy are proven therapies for increasing circulation, facilitating healing, and relieving neuropathic pain. And because heart disease is the leading cause of death for patients with diabetes, the Whitaker Wellness Institute offers EECP and a variety of other noninvasive therapies for this very common condition.

Personalized Lifestyle Program

Diet is a key component of our diabetes treatment program. Back to Health Program participants not only attend nutritional lectures and consultations, but also glean hands-on experience eating three blood sugar-friendly meals a day prepared by our Whitaker Wellness chef. We also place a great deal of emphasis on weight control, because type 2 diabetes can often completely be reversed by sufficient weight loss.
