Type 2 Diabetes

Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally

At last count, 29.1 million people in the U.S. had been diagnosed with diabetes -- and that doesn't even include the 25 percent of the country that may be pre-diabetic without even knowing it. This scourge can cause a host of health problems, from nerve disease and circulatory failure to blindness, if it goes untreated. Luckily, many people who have (or are at risk for) type 2 diabetes have the power to control and even reverse their condition naturally by making critical changes in their diet and nutrition. Here at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness, our natural treatment programs can help you do the same.

How Diet and Nutrition Can Help You Win Against Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body loses its ability to provide enough insulin for the body's needs. Insulin is a hormone that allows sugar to be taken up and used as fuel by various types of cells. It is usually preceded by a "pre-diabetic" phase known as insulin resistance in which the body boosts its insulin output to compensate. Once this measure is no longer sufficient to maintain a healthy blood sugar level, the patient has full-blown diabetes. Type 2 diabetes used to be called "adult onset" diabetes, but it's become increasingly common among children and teenagers in recent years. That's because lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise play a huge role in its development. Too much of the wrong kinds of food, coupled with a lack of activity, are a potent recipe for type 2 diabetes.

Fighting Type 2 Diabetes Naturally

The good news is that since type 2 diabetes can be brought on by diet and nutrition, it can frequently be reversed by correcting those factors in your daily life. Dr. Phillips and his team are dedicated to helping San Antonio residents avoid the dangers of diabetes by helping them gain control over their eating habits. Proper nutrition is must for regaining normal blood sugar and insulin levels. This may involve such changes as:

  • Replacing simple carbohydrates with complex carbohydrates
  • Choosing foods that introduce sugars into the bloodstream more slowly
  • Avoiding alcohol
  • Avoiding refined sugars, especially concentrated forms such as high-fructose corn syrup
  • Choosing raw or lightly processed foods over highly processed "junk foods"

Introducing specific nutritional supplements can also help by improving your body's ability to use insulin. We may prescribe a combination of supplements such as vanadium, magnesium, biotin, chromium, omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin E, lipoic acid and many others. But it's important to note that these supplements can make a significant difference only after we've made the necessary adjustments to your diet. We may also recommend an exercise regimen as a highly effective complement to diet and nutrition. Activity forces your body to burn fuel, thus keeping your blood sugar levels under tighter control. Call Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness at (210) 545-1144 today -- and learn more about how we can help you reverse your diabetes naturally!
