Preventing & Reversing Diabetes

Yes, we do have a nutritional crisis in America!  The American Diet, in conjunction with less exercise, has led to an enormous increase in Diabetes II diagnoses, even in teens and young adults.

The good news is, diabetes II, especially in its early stages, is reversable. 

Risk Factors for Diabetes II:

  • obesity
  • age of 45 +
  • sedentary lifestyle
  • family history of diabetes

People with diabetes are at higher risk of further serious health problems

  • high cholesterol
  • high blood pressure
  • heart disease
  • kidney problems
  • loss of toes, and eventually foot or leg
  • stroke

Treating diabetes II is all about controlling blood sugar, and connecting to the body’s need to live a healthy life: abstain from addictive foods, losing weight, and moving your body.  Most people already know this!  However, since human beings are best in creating patterns and adhering to them, making lifestyle choices toward health seems daunting and marred by failure.  No longer! The therapists at Health Psychology Sacramento will assist you step by step to make these changes and to make them stick!
