Natural Alternatives for Diabetes Care
Apr 01, 2012 01:08PM
Patients with diabetes and individuals concerned about their blood sugar levels may worry about the risks from traditional medicines they use. The opportunities for obtaining helpful natural alternatives to drug therapy recently expanded with the opening of Metabolic Alternatives, located at 7935 Airport Road North, Suite 102, in Naples.
The practice reports that diabetes can double the risk of having a heart attack or stroke, triple the likelihood of dying of kidney disease and more than double the risk of dying from an infection or liver cancer. Diabetes also increases the risk of Alzheimer’s and liver disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and nervous system and digestive disorders.
The new provider offers holistic treatments to reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Utilizing a specialized acupuncture procedure developed by Dr. Chris Bickford, in conjunction with diet and unique Chi Kung exercises, patients typically see improvements in blood sugar levels, total cholesterol and triglycerides.
