We use what is called a Natural Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutritional approach. Our focus is on improving physiological function as a primary method of improving the health of patient rather than treating a symptom with medications or drugs. We focus on trying to finding out WHY someone might have high blood sugars.
We utilize specialized lab testing to help determine which areas of the body that are not functioning as they should be that could be contributing to your insulin resistance. We primarily focus on the organs of the body that help process your blood sugars, but look at the body as a whole as well.
Most people do not realize that multiple areas of the body can contribute to high blood sugars. Some are:
- Adrenal Dysfuction
- Liver dysfunction
- Thryoid problems
- Auto-Immune problems
When organs or tissues aren’t working like they are supposed to be, the person can exhibit consistently high blood sugars.
We take a 4 step approach to helping patients achieve their health care goals.
Step 1: After the initial testing a customized plan using natural medicine will be developed to help normalize and regulate the affected areas of the body that might be contributing to the insulin resistance.
Step 2: We go over Dietary Guidelines to help take pressure off the body so it has time to heal and recover. We also discuss certain food sensitivities that might contributing to high blood sugars that most people do not know about.
Step 3: We use clinical supplementation to help increase insulin sensitivity.
Step 4: We incorporate a coaching program and follow ups as to ensure proper follow thru to obtain the best possible results.
Typically as we see someone’s blood sugars reduce, it is necessary to communicate with your Doctor to have them make adjustments to your medications when needed.
