Despite the vast amounts of literature and public education, the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes is on the rise across North America. Where as type 1 diabetes is treatable with insulin shots, it is not preventable due to its genetic roots. Type 2 diabetes on the other hand, is preventable. A number of studies conducted have indicated that type 2 diabetes can be controlled, delayed and even reversed with proper naturopathic diabetes treatment in Arlington.
Our fast paced life styles, stress induced jobs and the relative lowers costs of poor food choices results in many people not taking time to prepare and eat a healthy diet or get a sufficient amount of exercise.
Through traditional medicine, type 2 diabetes is commonly controlled with prescribed medication. Unfortunately, these traditional medications can come with side effects such as nausea, diarrhea and skin rashes.
Naturopathic doctors understand that although the majority of symptoms of diabetes may be similar from patient to patient, each persons experiences may differ. Therefore, an ND (naturopathic doctor) will individualize a treatment plan according to circumstances.
With emphases on nutrition and exercise, ND’s are very well trained and have a host of treatment options for those suffering from diabetes. When possible, a naturopathic would steer away from conventional medications opting for more natural supplements.
Many of which, studies have shown to be quite effective in managing blood sugar levels with out the common side effects of traditional medications.
