In a recent four-minute video produced by natural health expert Larry Cook, California Licensed Naturopathic Doctor Lucy Rojo explains how natural medicine can reverse Type 2 Diabetes.
Online PR News – 25-May-2010 – – Type 2 Diabetes is a metabolic problem where the body can’t deal appropriately with blood sugar. Specifically, the body’s insulin—which is produced in the pancreas—is not able to get into the body’s cells because the cells become resistant to it. That causes elevated levels of blood sugar which then get into different parts of the body and wreak havoc.
Dr. Rojo says, “I eliminate processed foods from a patient’s diet and incorporate more organic food. Exercise is essential for their overall progress. The goal of the exercise is to decrease the body fat and increase muscle mass, because muscle mass dictates metabolism.” “I include nutritional support in the form of vitamin and mineral supplements. I use herbs such as bilberry to help support blood vessels, antioxidants to decrease the damage to the tissue and pycnogenol to decrease inflammation and help to lower blood sugar overall.” “While there’s a genetic component to diabetes, it’s definitely a disease of lifestyle. For those patients who follow my recommendations about diet and exercise, they definitely see improvement within twelve to sixteen months.”
Naturopathic Medicine is a natural medicine model that emphasizes the identification and treatment of the root cause of the disease or health condition in order to restore health. Conventional and alternative diagnostic testing is used to evaluate the root cause of disease symptoms and then diet and lifestyle modifications are prescribed along with appropriate nutrients, botanical medicine, homeopathic remedies and other natural therapies to enable healing of the affected areas of the body.
Mr. Cook says, “Natural living works because the body will heal itself when given the right conditions. When people take full responsibility for their food choices and lifestyle choices that affect overall health and also decide to work with a qualified natural medicine professional such as a Naturopathic Doctor, symptoms of Diabetes can disappear.” To watch the video of Dr. Rojo share how she successfully diagnoses and treats Diabetes, visit http://www.thenaturalguide.com/nd/lr-diabetes.html.
