Master Your Diabetes

Master Your Diabetes (CHES)

This course is only for CHES practitioners.

Patients with prediabetes or diabetes can improve glycemic control through intensive management, good lifestyle choices, and a mix of integrative and traditional therapies. Following individualized diabetes care, preventing or reversing existing complications is possible.

This book covers the scientific evidence, rationale and physiological basis of integrative therapy used along with conventional therapies. It explains the “eight essentials” of treatment prevention: a low-carb diet, exercise, good sleep, stress management, healing the gut, detoxification, supplementation, and medications.


The science presented is well researched and founded on sound evidence with claims supported by scholarly works, including case reports, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses. Library Journal

Why We Chose This Book
