Plant-based Therapy for Individuals with Diabetes

A plant-based diet is a powerful tool for preventing and reversing diabetes. Plant-based diets have been shown to control blood sugar three times more effectively than a traditional diabetes diet that limits calories and carbohydrates.

Within weeks on a plant-based diet, people see dramatic health improvements, like weight loss, improved blood glucose control, improved insulin sensitivity, reduction in medication use, and reduced cholesterol levels. In some cases, you would never know they’d have diabetes to begin with.

 

Due to it’s effectiveness, plant-based diets are rapidly becoming the new approach to treating diabetes. The plant-based therapy program for diabetes will help you effectively and safely implement a plant-based diet. You’ll meet with a registered dietitian who specializes in plant-based nutrition.
