Diabetes Recovery Program

Control / Reverse Diabetes Naturally

Regarding the fact that diabetes needs to be treated with an integrative and holistic perspective, our programs are designed to help manage and reverse diabetes, through fixing the root causes of them instead of just addressing the symptoms, as well as restoring health and balance to those who are already suffering from the condition and allowing them to lead productive and healthy lives.

Our intention is to challenge the myths and conflicting health advice floating around on the internet and give a clear understanding of how to control and manage the condition. During our Diabetes Recovery Program at The LifeCo, you will be able to transition into a healthier diet and, more importantly, learn how and why.

‘‘It is possible to control diabetes with the right meal plan and a 2 – 3 week detox program.”

Thomas Lodi, MD, Integrative Oncologist

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition that occurs when someone’s blood glucose is higher than the average level. Blood glucose or blood sugar is the primary source of energy in our body, and it is obtained from the food we eat. To get glucose from the food we eat into our cells to give us energy, we need insulin, a hormone created by the pancreas. Sometimes our bodies cannot produce enough insulin, or in some cases, it doesn’t use this hormone well. Thus, glucose stays in the blood without reaching the cells, and having too much glucose in the blood system can lead to health problems.

Symptoms of diabetes depend on how much blood sugar your body produces. Some people diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes or prediabetes may not even show any signs. Whereas in Type 1 Diabetes, those symptoms may appear more quickly and be more serious.
Some of the clues that can lead you to Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes are:

  • Sudden weight loss
  • Frequent urination
  • Increased thirst & hunger
  • Slow-healing sores & wounds
  • Fatigue & exhaustion
  • Frequent infections, such as gums or skin infections & vaginal infections
  • Blurred vision
  • Irritability & sensitivity
  • Having ketones (by-products of the breakdown of fatty acids)
Type 1 Diabetes usually occurs early in life and is associated with a complete inability to produce sugar-reducing hormones. This condition cannot be reversed unless the person were to come within the first several months of diagnosis. However, our program for Type-1 aims lowering sugar reducing hormone requirements and restoring vitality and function. It will help you to be less dependent on medication, balance sugar & blood pressure levels, balance cholesterol levels, and provide excellent results in weight loss.
Bad eating habits and obesity may cause high blood sugar, which can lead to the reduction of the body’s hormonal sensitivity. This prevents glucose from entering the cells. Thus, the cells are deprived of fuel. On Type 2 Diabetes, your pancreas can produce insulin, but the cells are resistant to it, and your body becomes hormonal resistant. Through a balanced diet, mainly consisting of plant-based high alkaline raw food, the body can deal with the causes of Type 2 Diabetes. Gradually the disease process will slow down, and the diabetic effects will be reversed.
Gestational Diabetes is a type of diabetes that consists of high blood glucose during pregnancy, which may cause complications to both mother and child. Gestational Diabetes usually disappears after pregnancy, but women are affected any way, and most importantly, their children are at increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes later in life.

We can even add pre-diabetes as the 4th type of Diabetes since it affects a high percentage of people in society and can be seen as a warning sign that leads to Type 2 Diabetes. Blood sugar levels that are higher than average but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes may be signs of that you have prediabetes. You may have some of the symptoms of diabetes or even some of the complications. Therefore, it must be taken seriously and be reversed before it turns into Type 2 Diabetes. That means that you must follow a treatment plan and a diet and exercise routine. Even small changes can have a significant impact on managing the disease or preventing it altogether.

Complete Recovery from Type 2 Diabetes is Possible!

At least 90-95% of people with diabetes have diabetes Type 2. Our guests at The LifeCo suffering from Type 2 Diabetes have consistently managed to reverse this condition. Because by controlling blood glucose, diabetes can be controlled, slowed down, and even partly reversed. Remember, starting as a lifestyle condition, Type 2 Diabetes may unfortunately turn into a chronic disease, followed by an increased risk in heart attacks, strokes, circulation problems, blindness, decreased healing on wounds, and kidney failures. 

Diabetes Treatment at The LifeCo

We have 4 main pillars to reverse diabetes at The LifeCo:

Detoxifying the body from accumulated toxins with a cleanse or fast is an important step to deal with the causes of Type 2 Diabetes. You can have a minimum of two weeks of the liquid detox program, like our Master Cleanse, Green Juice or Water Fasting program. This way, your sugar reducing hormones and glucose dynamics will be regulated and reach a healthy level. Additionally, you won’t have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) anymore. Morning walks and exercise during the detox can also help the process by balancing the blood sugar.
A balanced diet, mainly consisting of raw food with reduction of carbohydrate intake, will make you feel well-nourished, gradually slow down the disease process and reverse the diabetic effects. After the detox, your blood sugar will come down to an average level, and then you will make a transition to a healthy diet with nutrient-dense foods. Having long gaps between your first and last meals, like 18 hours, is very important. Because during the gap, your sugar reduction hormone levels lower, and when you start to have lower sugar reduction hormone levels, you get healthier.

The natural therapies applied at The LifeCo Centers aim to enhance the diabetes recovery process and also provide the necessary nutrition that the body requires. IV Treatments applied by our medical team helps the body to balance itself and has significant anti-aging effects. Enemas and colon hydrotherapies help to release accumulated toxins through the colon. We also enhance the release of toxins through treatments such as massages, steam baths, Turkish Hamam, and infrared sauna. These therapies will be implemented in your program after the initial consultation with your program coordinator and our doctors.

A diabetes recovery journey is also supposed to be a healing journey. The leading causes of Type 2 Diabetes are bad eating habits and lack of motivation. You may have the right intention and mindset, but if you are surrounded by toxic stimulants, your healing journey becomes tough. The LifeCo Centers are located in peaceful environments designed to enhance the healing process. Keep in mind that you will be surrounded by like-minded people, enjoying their own journeys and also an experienced staff and medical team. When you feel demotivated, we will be there to keep you on track.

It is essential that the immune system works properly in order for us to stay alive and to be healthy. Our body is fighting every day against germs, microorganisms, viruses, toxins and different foreign substances. Although we do not feel it our immune system is continuously working. Poor nutritional diets, lack of sleep, lack of exercises, stress, smoke, alcohol, etc. decreases the immune system functions. When this system slows down diseases start to show up. This protocol is composed of high minerals and vitamins that will help the immune system work properly, boost it up, prevent different diseases and provides a long lasting body resistance.

FAQ about Diabetes and Diabetes Recovery Program

Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough sugar reducing hormones or when the body cannot effectively use the sugar reducing hormone it produces. Type 1 Diabetes is often diagnosed in childhood, which is not associated with excess body weight and cannot be controlled without taking sugar reducing hormone. Unlike type 1, type 2 Diabetes is usually diagnosed in over 30-year-olds, often associated with excess body weight and with high blood pressure and/or cholesterol levels at diagnosis. And it might be possible to come off diabetes medication with the right type of lifestyle.

Today, the number of people with diabetes is around 400 million in the world and it is increasing every single day. 1 in 4 people over the age of 65 are living with diabetes. Among the diabetes cases in adults, 90-95% are diagnosed as Type 2.

In the past several years type 2 diabetes has increased to an epidemic and even pandemic proportions and is now one of the greatest threats to health world wide. Furthermore, we are finding adolescents and children developing this condition, not just older adults. It is essential to understand that type 2 diabetes is simply the body’s modifications at a cellular and physiological level to accommodate a poor lifestyle and diet.

It doesn’t happen suddenly, “It picks up gradually.” Most people are unaware that they have diabetes in its early or even middle phases. Treating diabetes early can help prevent serious complications.

You might be a candidate already! Does the following sound familiar?

  • You need to take more bathroom breaks
  • You have lost a little weight
  • You are getting thirstier than usual dry mouth and itchy skin
  • You feel shaky and hungry
  • You feel tired all the time
  • Your cuts and scrapes heal more slowly

Over time, high blood glucose leads to problems such as;

  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Nerve damage
  • Stroke
  • Eye problems
  • Foot problems
  • Dental problems

Managing the condition is possible by changing your lifestyle
The good news is that since type 2 diabetes can be a direct consequence of a poor diet and unhealthy lifestyle habits, it can be controlled by modifying the diet and other lifestyle components. 

Reduction of carbohydrate intake, and providing a good amount of nutrition, based on raw – vegan food, this would be after detoxifying the body from accumulated toxins. Adding smartly designed exercise program enriched with mindful therapies such as yoga, meditation, breath work etc.. would complete the picture with the help of many other well-aging therapies supporting your immune system.

For Type 1 Diabetes
Which is associated with a complete inability to produce sugar reducing hormones cannot be reversed unless the person were to come within the first several months of diagnosis. However, our program for advanced diabetes will be able to lower sugar reducing hormone requirements and restore vitality and function.

How long should you attend?
The duration depends upon the person’s willingness, 7 days is good for balancing hormones and blood sugar values, however at least 14 days is needed for a deeper impact and, 21 days would offer life-changing benefits.

Why should you choose a Diabetes Recovery Program at The LifeCo?

No-Chewing is essential

Our brain consumes around 25% of our daily energy but around 30% is already spent on digestion, producing the necessary enzymes and eliminating the toxins through blood circulation and ultimately through the bowels. When we take a time-out on digestion and consume no solid foods, the body can use this extra energy to start cleaning and renovating itself. The cleansing starts from the blood and liver. After the program is done, you are expected to have a better functioning body inside and out (you will simply glow).

Choosing Diabetes Recovery Package at The LifeCo

When you arrive at the center, you will be greeted by our professional medical staff including our Doctor and detox program coordinators. You will have your measurements taken and you will be given an orientation of the center to see the additional therapies you can benefit from. Every day your program will be closely followed by our experts and you will be provided with your meal plan right on time, wherever you are, our staff will find you to make sure you get your nutrition on time.

Join anytime that suits you

The LifeCo Detox Programs can be attended at any time during the year. Minimum 4 days are recommended but we have had guests staying for up to 30 days for our programs. During the detox retreat, there may be guest experts in our centers and you are welcome to attend their workshops or lectures. Based on the availability you may change between different kind of detox programs as well. This can be decided by yourself based on directions provided by our detox experts. The first couple of days of the cleanse can be tough, because your body can resist the change in various ways but after this threshold is passed you will start feeling the real change!
