What exactly is "Functional Medicine"?
Functional medicine is personalized health care for the individual. A clinical model that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of just the symptoms associated with serious and life-altering chronic diseases. It is a science- based field of health care that is grounded in the following principles:
- Patient-centered health care emphasizes "patient care" rather than "disease care."
- Extensive testing to find out which organ systems are involved in the disease process.
- Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease.
By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of health care to a more patient- centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. We tend to spend much more time with our patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. The treatment programs provided by Next Advanced Medicine introduce an individualized treatment plan for the specific causes of that unique individual's disease.
Next Advanced Medicine has extensive experience and success in reversing Type II Diabetes. While each patient is unique and outcomes will vary, we have seen hundreds of patients reverse their Type 2 Diabetes by lowering their A1C levels to below a 6.5 - and in some cases lower than a 5.7 (Non-diabetic). Results are achieved through strict adherence to individualized programs that are based on extensive testing of each patient and a thorough analysis of each patients health history. Patient testimonials are available on our Youtube channel.
Type 2 Diabetes has been shown to be reversed in randomized controlled trials, as reported in this peer-reviewed medical journal article by Gregg et al., (2012) Journal article on Reversing Diabetes (JAMA). Another peer reviewed study by Lim et al., (2011) on the Reversal of Type 2 Diabetes in the journal Diabetologia, showed that insulin sensitivity and beta cell function were normalized with dietary energy restriction. In addition, a report published on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website, written by the American Diabetes Association, acknowledges that the remission of type 2 diabetes has been observed in several clinical studies, and seeks to define and distinguish the cure or remission of diabetes in this article Definition of remission of diabetes by American Diabetes Association (2009).
Are you suffering from Type II Diabetes or Hypothyroidism?
Next Advanced Medicine offers the finest alternative, natural approaches for Type II Diabetes and Hypothyroidism. We may be able to help you overcome your condition and start living a happy, healthy life! It is well known that prescription drugs are often necessary. However it is also clear that prescription drugs can lead to side effects. In addition there are times when prescription drugs can lead to a worsening of the condition they intend to treat. A balanced use of prescription medication to keep patients safe should always be used in balance with offering a customized treatment program designed to get to the root issues for each individual. A treatment program that works to eventually get patients off of medications when possible.
In fact many of the diabetic medications carry the risk of serious side effects...some causing weight gain and ultimately perpetuating the disease long term. A drug for every disease or symptom often only 'masks the problem' and allows for the underlying causes to remain untreated. In addition, high levels of insulin in your body can be very dangerous to your health! More than likely it's not that your body is lacking the hormone insulin. The problem for the majority of Type II Diabetics is that insulin resistance has set in ... this means that the body has lost the ability to utilize insulin appropriately.
Why bombard your body with something it no longer recognizes and can no longer process? Extra amounts of insulin may be harmful to your health and can cause your disease to progress or lead to other health problems.
