Get To The Cause Of The Problem

While traditional medicine treats the symptoms of diabetes, functional medicine looks to get to the root of the problem. We practice functional medicine at our chiropractic office. We believe that getting to the cause of a problem instead of treating the symptoms only is the best way to fully heal. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, your functional medicine provider will take a look for:

  • areas of inflammation or all over body inflammation
  • any signs of vitamin deficiencies
  • your current cortisol levels that will rise because of stress
  • how healthy your liver is
  • the functioning of your thyroid
  • how healthy your adrenal gland is functioning.

After careful testing to find out where your y deficits are, your functional medicine provider will develop a treatment plan to help you get to better health.

Treatment With Functional Medicine 

Treatment for diabetes will be a multi-faceted approach. Your treatment provider will talk to you about eating for better health, developing an exercise routine to improve your core strength and fitness level, stress management techniques and ways to detoxify your body. Stress levels can have a significant negative impact on your body's ability to manage sugar levels. Learning new ways to manage stress will benefit your overall health.

When The Body Is Insulin Resistant

Insulin resistance often occurs because of a lack of exercise, obesity, and poor nutrition. To improve your ability to utilize insulin correctly, you will need to improve your habits in a number of areas. You may have food sensitivities causing inflammation, allergies, or lack in necessary nutrients. With good nutrition and a solid exercise plan, you can recover your health and reduce or eliminate the effects of Type 2 diabetes.

I am now pain free 95% of the time, and have Chiropractic treatments nearly once a month to ensure I stay that way. My admiration, gratitude and thankfulness to Dr. Nichols and his staff will be never ending."
