Diabetes Treatment in Phoenix AZ

With Diabetes our body loses its ability to properly respond to or produce the hormone insulin. What happens is that the body experiences nutritional and blood flow issues as a result of this hormone deficiency.

The body is unable to properly break down carbohydrates which leads to an increased level of glucose in the patient’s blood and urine. Symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Sensation of hunger (though you are eating normally)
  • Dehydration
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Poor bloodflow leads to slower recovery from cuts and bruises
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of weight
  • Tingling sensation in extremities, neuropathic pain. Ask us about our new approach for neuropathy.

Diabetes Testing

In order to properly diagnose your diabetes, nutritional tests needed to be conducted. We need to know where your hormone and blood glucose levels are to know how severe your diabetes is.

This will allow us to give you the best guidance on how to manage your symptoms and point you to the road of balance.

You’ll find that proper upfront testing and diagnostics is the key to a successful naturopathic treatment. This is why we place such an emphasis on complete and accurate testing procedures and careful diagnostics and consideration of the patient’s medical history and current lifestyle habits. This will ensure that we are giving our patients the best possible advice, especially when it comes to their diet if they are showing signs of diabetes.

Naturopathic Approaches for Diabetes

Diabetes is a result of the body being out of balance and it further exacerbates this imbalance by negatively affecting the body’s ability to process the vital hormone insulin. Naturopathic medicine offers the ancient practice of Chinese herbal medicine, along with modern nutrition and herbals, to correct this imbalance.

Whatever caused the initial imbalance, the right combination of Chinese herbs can either assist the body’s ability to process insulin or produce insulin, or provide the body with the necessary nutrition to sustain a healthy weight.

Diet Counseling

There’s truly only one way to manage your diabetes, and that is through proper diet and exercise.

We utilized specific dietary changes that are mostly specialized to each patient’s body, lifestyle and needs.

Speaking with our naturopathic doctor, you can discuss your current diet and the ways in which you can slowly improve your eating habits.

Maintaining balance is key, which is why spikes in your diet should be avoided at all cost.

While diet is the most important factor in a diabetic’s fight towards managing their health, it doesn’t need to be overthought. All of the same best practices apply for your diet that you’ve learned throughout your life.

If you are displeased with your current diabetic care routine, or are noticing the early signs of diabetes, including erectile dysfunction, contact the Original Health Institute to speak with one of our doctors to identify your diabetic condition and create a proper treatment plan for your symptoms.
