Erin Chamerlik, MS, MT (ASCP) will be discussing current information on type 2 diabetes, a disease that has doubled over the past 15 years. The Centers for Disease Control estimates one in three people will have the disease by 2050. Efforts are traditionally focused on treating the key symptom, elevated blood glucose levels, with medication that lowers glucose while at the same time raising insulin levels. This archaic approach ignores the many nutritional and lifestyle changes that can be implemented to address the root cause of diabetes, the standard American diet and lifestyle choices.
The great news is that significant reductions in hyperglycemia and reversal of symptoms of type 2 diabetes, is possible with a comprehensive approach utilizing an individualized whole food diet, a comprehensive supplement program and lifestyle changes that address stress, sleep, exercise and environmental toxins.
Erin will share a highly successful approach to reversing type 2 diabetes and bring current research gleaned during her master's thesis at Hawthorn University.
