As you may recall, I had a health scare last summer. I had been sick and fatigued, and things were just getting worse. I’d gone to my “regular” doctor and was told that there was nothing wrong with me, and that the good news was that I wasn’t pregnant. I asked for more tests, and was told that they didn’t have time to talk to me….my 5 minutes worth of appointment was up.
It was one of the most frustrating days of my life. How dare my doctor not listen to me? How dare she write me off like it was all in my head? I KNEW there was something going on, and so I found a holistic doctor who, although not covered by insurance (of course) was willing to take the time to talk to me and to dig until we found the problem.
And problems we found…severe adrenal dysfunction, red blood cell degeneration (not enough oxygen in my blood cells), inflammation throughout my body, severe anemia, low vitamin D levels, unusually high calcium levels, 13 food sensitivities, and pre-diabetes.
That one, I confess, stood out to me. I hadn’t expected that. And it scared the living daylights out of me. I was given a holistic approach (you know, a LIFESTYLE CHANGE) and I worked my butt off sticking with it.
4 months later, I had all my tests done again, and I had made significant improvements. My iron levels, although still low, had more than doubled. My vitamin D levels had tripled. My cholesterol had improved. I was absorbing nutrients better. Inflammation had lowered. All of my numbers improved. And the pre-diabetes? I had reversed it.
Guys, I’m a HUGE believer in treating problems, especially pre-diabetes, from the inside out. I’ve lived it. It can be done. I paid over $6,000 out of pocket (and I’m still paying it) in order to turn my life around. I’d do it again in a heartbeat. I probably would have looked for a more affordable option, however.
Did you know that 35% of people in the US have diabetes or pre-diabetes? That’s more than 1 in 3!! A lot of people don’t even know it, just like I didn’t. That is SCARY. I’ve lived it, and I’ve beaten it, and I’ve found a program ONLINE that is MUCH more affordable than the route I took, and I feel strongly enough about it that I want to share it with you.
IM Health offers an integrative Diabetes and Pre Diabetes reversal program. They are online, which means no matter where you are in the world, if you have a phone and internet connection, you can participate. This program has made remarkable and PROVEN strides in reducing/improving blood sugar levels in patients.
All people who have diabetes and pre-diabetes have access to this program, which includes:
- Comprehensive holistic diabetes education from some of the best experts in the country.
- Delicious and nutritious diet plan including many easy to prepare recipes.
- Stress reduction and gentle exercise program designed specifically for people with diabetes & pre-diabetes
- A personal certified integrative medicine health coach to guide you through the personal healthcare transformation process.
Best of all, they offer a FREE consultation with a Life Coach. FREE! I actually had a consultation myself, and was able to speak with a coach. It was some of the most insightful 30 minutes of the year for me! My coach, Linda, helped me to see the origin of some of a problem I chose to discuss, and then helped me to set goals (specific, action steps) to address the issue.
Like I said, the consultation is completely free. It’s worth your time to learn more and see if it’s something that you, or a loved one, could use. Diabetes is no joke! It’s out of control, and we’ve got to do something to fix it! They offer payment plans and you can use a health savings or flex spending account. It’s MUCH less money than the $6,000 program I paid for. Like 85% less! I wish I’d known about this program last year.
I’m telling you, this is worth looking into. You are worth it. Your health is worth it. Don’t become a victim to this epidemic. GO HERE to learn more about the company and their program. Heck, schedule a consultation while you’re there if you feel so inclined. And if you do, tell them I sent you. Let ME know how it goes. I’d love to hear your success stories – all of them! I changed my life. I know anyone else can too.
Sorry for the long post. I feel SO strongly about this. I simply couldn’t stop typing! Let’s get control of our health as a nation….once and for all.
