The Diabetes epidemic is rapidly spreading across our nation and infiltrating every home in America. Furthermore, this epidemic no longer excludes children. Currently, nearly 30 million people battle diabetes. Today, 1 in 11 Americans are living with diabetes. As a result, millions more are at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. If you are currently diagnosed with diabetes there are proactive steps you can take to help minimize or hopefully eradicate the detrimental effects of this disease.
First of all, anytime you start to make lifestyle modifications, it is always wise to have a primary care doctor on board. Especially, one who is supportive of your decision to take back control of your health. Therefore, as you change your diet, exercise, and modify lifestyle choices, your body has the amazing ability to reach its full potential. If you are currently on a medication, make sure you are being monitored on a regular basis to see if medication levels may need adjusting.
The Olive Leaf has several unique programs in place to help you regain your health and balance your blood sugar. Certain testing is beneficial to help determine the best options for your own individual needs. The pathway genomics genetic test provides a great baseline to help you know genetically which diet whether it is low fat, low carb, or increased protein fits your genetic blueprint. This test also indicates what you may be genetically deficient from a nutrient standpoint. It also gives you an awesome dietary plan to follow specifically based around what your genes are expressing.
Programs to Consider
The Olive Leaf also provides an anti-inflammatory dietary program SHAPE ReClaimed™. This program can decrease inflammation throughout the body and promote the positive effects of breaking down stored fat effectively and safely. Not only are patients losing excess weight, they are eliminating symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, insomnia, digestive complaints as well as many others.
Other programs in place are focused around your blood-type/genotype. These programs will provide you with 400-600 personalized low-glycemic recipes that you can use throughout your life to help you maintain your health. Certain protocols and supplements have been very beneficial to support those with diabetes.
All of this can be discussed when you schedule an appointment with The Olive Leaf. If you do not currently have a primary care doctor to monitor your diabetes, we will be happy to refer you to someone near our offices in Alpharetta and Lawrenceville.
