Why diabetes reversal should always be the first treatment goal Diabetes is becoming the global health epidemic of the 21st century, and so often is part of a vicious circle of cardiovascular disease and obesity. In 2014, 9.4% of the NSW population had diabetes or high blood glucose; 50% higher than rates in 2002. Looking deeper, Western Sydney has become a diabetes ‘hotspot’, with 60% of the population overweight and deemed at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In 2016, Western Sydney Local Health District chief executive, Danny O'Connor, predicted that the rising tsunami of diabetes in Sydney's western suburbs will overwhelm hospitals within 15 years and specialist factories will need to be built to perform amputations. The causes of diabetes Diabetes is a western lifestyle disease; stress, inactivity, social isolation and a lack of a sense of community are contributing risk factors that drive or combine with the major risk factor - diet. The connection between diet and diabetes is simple: Overwhelming scientific evidence now shows that in individuals with a genetic predisposition, type 2 diabetes is caused by consuming a diet rich in saturated fat with too many empty calories. Unfortunately, that describes the typical western diet, full of animal foods loaded with saturated fat and processed foods stripped of fibre and nutrition. While our genes also play a role in the diabetes epidemic, genetics loads the gun but lifestyle pulls the trigger. Fortunately, this means you can have a genetic predisposition to diabetes and still avoid it. Additionally, the science of Epigenetics shows the environment (e.g. food and stress) can determine whether genes express themselves or not. So simply having a genetic predisposition does not determine your health. Genes change over centuries, but the diabetes epidemic has occurred in only 2-3 decades. In China, rates have risen enormously; from being virtually unknown 40 years ago to now being 12% of the population and rising. This increase directly correlates with the change from the traditional lifestyle to the western lifestyle, with its stress, community breakdown, industrialisation, hi-density urbanisation, pollution and poor western diet. In communities where people eat their traditional diets, rich in complex carbohydrates and live in traditional, supportive communities, without the stress of the western lifestyle, diabetes is virtually unknown.

IT’S THE FAT - not the

sugar or carbs!

The typical western diet contains high levels of saturated fats that can kill off the insulin-secreting beta cells of the pancreas, creating an insulin deficiency. It also creates three types of fat accumulation (visceral, subcutaneous and intracellular) that contribute to diabetes by causing insulin resistance as the insulin receptors lose their sensitivity. The correlation between obesity and diabetes is so strong, that the word ‘diabesity’ has come into use to describe the epidemic. The main focus when reversing diabetes should be on clearing the excess fat from the body through an optimised diet. That will improve pancreatic function, restore insulin sensitivity and move glucose from the bloodstream into the cells. However, without addressing the underlying drivers of poor diet, the reversal may not be sustained.
Type 2 diabetes, which accounts for about 85% of diabetes cases, is a totally preventable ‘lifestyle disease.’ It can be reversed by changing to a healthier lifestyle, incorporating healthy diet, stress reduction and becoming more active.
Caution This program is very effective at reducing your weight, blood pressure, and blood sugar level. Please consult with your treating doctor before changing your diet and do not start, stop, or change medication without professional medical advice. This website is not intended to take the place of personalised medical care or treatment and must not be taken as medical advice. Disclaimer & Results To meet our definition of genuine type 2 diabetes reversal, a number of criteria must be met to achieve non-diabetic range blood sugar levels. These include; (a) not requiring any diabetes medications or insulin to be taken. (b) achieving normal range blood sugar levels as measured by 3 blood tests; HbA1c test, the 2 hour glucose tolerance test (GTT) and a fasting blood sugar test. It is only possible to reverse type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes and type 1.5 (LADA) diabetes cannot be reversed and will always require insulin. A small proportion of type 2 diabetes cannot be reversed when insulin production has become insufficient. Results achieved can vary between individuals and depend on many factors, such as degree of compliance with a coaching program, pre-existing conditions, severity of existing conditions and the rate a coaching program is implemented. Refund Policy We will refund all coaching fees if a client does not achieve improvement in their type 2 diabetes as measured by the 3 diabetes blood tests, provided the agreed coaching program is followed and is verified.
