Did your doctor recently tell you that you have Type 2 Diabetes? Or, have you been living with Type 2 Diabetes for a while?
You may be worried about your health, but you may not know where to start.
Don’t worry, the Naturopathic Doctors at Onyx Integrative Medicine can help you take charge of your health, lose weight, and improve your heart health and nutrition.
Natural Type 2 Diabetes Treatment
At Onyx, our goal is to help you reverse your diabetes through individualized lifestyle and diet changes. We include clinically studied herbal and nutritional supplements to stabilize your blood sugar, cholesterol, as well as help you achieve a healthy weight.
Most importantly, we take an individualized approach to your care and customize your treatment to meet you where you currently are.
Every person is unique and therefore your treatment plan should be too.
How it Works
Get started by scheduling your new patient appointment (75-90minutes). You and the doctor will discuss all your current symptoms, eating and lifestyle patterns, review any previous lab work, order more labs – if necessary, and create a comprehensive treatment plan. Treatment plans often include dietary changes, exercise and lifestyle recommendations, professional-grade supplements, medication management, acupuncture, and more.
Our comprehensive natural Type 2 Diabetes program includes:
- Individualized Naturopathic Medical Care
- Comprehensive Laboratory Testing
- Diet & Nutritional Counseling
- Exercise & Lifestyle Counseling
- Professional Grade Supplements
- Medication Management
- Mind-body Medicine
How are we different than other diabetes treatment programs?
The conventional Type 2 Diabetes treatment focuses on medication management of blood sugar. In other word, various drugs are prescribed in an attempt to lower your blood sugar levels.
With this approach, the underlying problem never gets fixed.
Also, many people end up needing more and more medications, at higher dosages over time, increasing drug side effects. Common drug side effects include digestive upset, weight gain, and fatigue.
In summary, you will not achieve an improvement in your condition unless you adopt targeted diet and lifestyle changes. Digestive, hormonal, and metabolic imbalances play a role in diabetes, and it is essential to correct these as well.
Our Approach to Type 2 Diabetes Treatment
Our Naturopathic Doctor’s are different. They partner with you to help you adopt healthy eating patterns (no crash dieting here!), take on healthy lifestyle practices, and support balanced blood sugar with natural herbs and supplements.
Our doctors work on the underlying cause if your diabetes, and help you manage your stress, anxiety, and uplift your mood so that you are motivated to make changes that last.
Plus, we can help manage any medications you are currently on for your Type 2 Diabetes.
We look for the underlying reasons which may have lead to your development of Type 2 Diabetes, including:
- Food choices
- Lifestyle factors
- Hormone imbalances
- Sleep patterns
- Environmental toxic exposures
- Digestive imbalances
