Diabetes: The Functional Medicine Approach 

Many of our Fort Collins patients reduce and eliminate their need for medications across the board. Our patients lose weight without exercise, increase their energy levels…In other words, they are able to reverse diabetes naturally. In fact, a number of our patients actually become non-diabetic. That’s right, they are actually able to reverse diabetes naturally!

HOW DO WE DO IT? By looking beyond the label of the disease and uncovering WHY a person is diabetic.  We determine the underlying causes.  We uncover nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and organ dysfunction that are associated with the disease.

Complications

Heart disease and stroke

  • In 2004, heart disease was noted on 68% of diabetes-related death certificates among people aged 65 years or older.
  • In 2004, stroke was noted on 16% of diabetes-related death certificates among people aged 65 years or older.
  • Adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates about 2 to 4 times higher than adults without diabetes.
