TMHS 013: Natural Treatment For Type 2 Diabetes

In this episode of The Model Health Show we tackle the current epidemic of type 2 diabetes. In the United States 1 out of every 3 people has diabetes, pre-diabetes, or significant levels of insulin resistance.

On today’s show we’re going to take a look at what causes diabetes, how to prevent diabetes in the first place, and natural diabetes treatments to reverse the condition if you already have it.

This is an extremely important show because the levels of diabetes are still on the rise, and younger generations are getting hit the hardest. Childhood diabetes and childhood obesity rates have skyrocketed over the past few years. It’s time for all of us to step up and get educated to protect our families from a condition that’s proven to be nearly 100% preventable.

    Hi, I watched your video regarding well and spring water but what is the next best solution if you do not have either around. I live in South Florida and the next well and Spring is 3 to 4 hrs away. What about water ionizers like Tyent and Kengan? I know it wont be optimal but anything better then plastics and tp in my body sounds great. BTW you rock!!! Love your podcast!

    Have you watched “What the Health”? I started watching it and turned it off because it seems to go against everything I understand. Do you find any truth to that movie? Should I finish watching it?
