Reversing Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes is Reversible

For over 10 years clinics and doctors have been reversing Type 2 Diabetes. Why is this now being done?

The cause of Type 2 Diabetes is insulin resistance. The medical approach focuses on blood sugar. Blood sugar is a symptom, not the cause, which is why the disease gets worse over time. Type 2 Diabetes is a dietary disease of too many carbohydrates. Since this is a dietary disease, diet is the best way to treat this condition.
