Type 2 Diabetes Is Not a Life Sentence — 3 Patient Stories

dr-candice hall headshot-1

By Dr. Candice Hall, DC

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 1 in 10 Americans have diabetes, which equals 34 million people. Up to 95 percent of those cases are type 2 diabetes. While type 1 diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to produce insulin properly, type 2 diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to use insulin properly.1

Like many things in life, insulin isn’t noticed until it goes missing. When the body cannot make enough insulin or use what it has, blood sugar rises and quality of life plummets. Even while the rate of new cases of diabetes declines, the number of diagnosed adults continues to rise. And so, many go on struggling, feeling resigned to a life of low energy, high medical costs, and uncertain futures.

But there is hope. Despite your feelings, type 2 diabetes is not a life sentence; it can be treated and even reversed, allowing you to get off of meds and take control of your life.

Here are just three of many stories we could share of the patients who’ve found freedom through Next Advanced Medicine—and whose success we can replicate for you.

Dominick Gutierrez

Next Advanced Medicine _Dominick_GutierrezWhen Dominick was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, his blood sugar was so high that he couldn’t return to work. For over a month, he dipped into his vacation pay. But funds and time were both running out. He had already lost two brothers to diabetes, and with a third facing the same diagnosis, he knew the outlook was grim. So when he happened to see a Next Advanced Medicine commercial while out shopping for a Christmas gift, he was ready for a change.

In a very short time, Dominick’s life flipped entirely. His A1C dropped from 8.4 to 5.4—reversing his diabetes diagnosis—and he lost 55 pounds. He went from living entirely on drive-thru and take-out food to preparing his own meals and sharing recipes with his daughter—who couldn’t be happier with her dad’s transformation.

“It’s a whole new life. I have so much energy,” he says. “Honestly, I’m 48 years old. I feel like I’m 25. I’m up at 5 in the morning going for walks, and I have so much energy now, I can’t believe it. I feel like I’m high on life for this program.”

Raul Stamp

Lowered his A1C from 9.4 to 5.6
Lost 40 pounds

Next Advanced Medicine _Raul_StampWhen Raul was diagnosed as a diabetic in 2012, a part of him just accepted that the condition would take his life. After all, his father had died of diabetes only four days before turning 69. But when Raul actually came face to face with his mortality, a different switch was flipped.

“One day while driving to work, I sneezed and had a vertigo attack,” he says. “The world starting spinning. I had a semi-truck on each side of me, so I became terrified, and decided I had to do something.” And that something was turning to Next Advanced Medicine for help.

“Our mission is to help every individual achieve their goals by getting to the root of their affliction and developing a personalized course of action.”

Raul had a rough road ahead of him. For too long, his daily routine had consisted of sitting at work, sitting in the car, and sitting at home. On the day of his brush with death, his blood sugar tested at 303. When he started the program, his A1C was 9.4, he weighed 285 pounds, and his cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure were high.

After a thorough examination, the staff at Next Advanced Medicine developed a custom program for Raul that helped him to retake control of his future. By meticulously tracking everything he ate and exercising four times a week, Raul reversed his diabetes in just five months. Upon graduating, his A1C tested at 5.6, he had lost over 40 pounds, and his triglycerides, cholesterol, and blood pressure were all normal.

“I have more energy than I know what to do with. I’m building shelves and cabinets, and whatever else needs to be done around the house now,” he says. “I have to find something to do when I get home from work because I have so much energy, which I’m sure my wife appreciates—she won’t leave me alone.”

Dwayne Heath

Lowered his A1C from 8.1 to 5.5
Lost 70 pounds

Next Advanced Medicine _Dwayne_HeathDwayne first heard about Next Advanced Medicine when KFI radio’s Justin Worsham shared his father’s recovery story on the air. By then, Dwayne had been prediabetic for 10 years, with an A1C as high as 8.1. Hearing Justin talk about his father’s success was the final push he needed to take action.

In just six months with Next Advanced Medicine, Dwayne reversed his diabetes, lost 70 pounds, and dropped his A1C to 5.5. “It makes such a big difference,” he says. “I had a bilateral knee replacement five years ago, and I can tell the difference when I go for walks: I walk with more pep in my step, and less pain, and it will probably make my knees last longer.”

“It comes down to education and treating the whole person, not through pharmaceuticals, but through what you intake into your body, and fixing those areas of your body through the use of supplements,” Dwayne says. “It’s because you know what you are supposed to eat, and what you are not supposed to me. That education is the best will power you can have. When you know what foods are causing the problems, it’s easier to give those things up and stay on the path.”

“Now I can enjoy my five grandchildren for a lot longer than I expected to live.”

Raymond Janssen Testimony

Raymond Janssen Testimony

My name is ray Janssen, I heard about Next on the radio. And I followed up to the radio ad because I was seeing my general practitioner and he was threatening to put me on insulin. I was on an Invocamet program and heading for insulin and wasn’t real happy with what was going on there. And I heard about the program so I came down and went to the presentation and I was quite impressed.

So I signed up and it has been a great program. Before the program, I was not feeling bad, but when I first got diagnosed with Type 2, my A1C was up around 13, but I was really what I would call “pounding sugar”. I was eating a lot of sugar and a lot of breads and things like that. So I started doing diabetic kinds of things and it got down to 7.7, which is where it was when I started the program. Within just a couple months, it was down into the 6 range, which was really impressive to me.

The program is really awesome, if you are considering it, I would say, DO IT! And don’t cheat. Do it! Just follow through with it, do everything that they tell you to do and the results are amazing. Just amazing. I’ve lost weight, my blood pressure numbers have gone down, my blood sugar numbers went down.

I’ve been in the program now for six months and everything has gotten better. From starting the program, until now, everything has gotten better. All of my numbers in my blood panel across the board are almost completely normal. So it’s been a huge, huge change. The staff has been amazing. They are all friendly, they are all very knowledgeable and everyone is very informative. I find it to be a great program, and like I said, do what they say! Don’t cheat, do what they say because they know best, really. If I can say this, this has been the biggest change for me, once I took the sugar out of my diet for 45 days, if I ate anything with a little bit of sugar in it, either on accident or maybe just for a small test, it was amazing how quickly I could tell what things had sugar in them. You begin to notice things immediately when things are not really good for you. And that was the most amazing change to me, was that I could feel immediately when I was eating really healthy food and not healthy food.

My significant other is the biggest skeptic in the world, and the doctor talk, she was amazed and impressed. So it was a big relief for me because when she agreed to be my support person, we both eat much better, we cook much better, we eat a lot more meals at home than we ever did. The whole program has been awesome; I just can’t say it enough. It has just been great. Overall, if you just do what you are told and suggested, it is amazing how much better you will feel. And when they say that you will get 10 to 15 more years of more quality life, I truly believe that now. Because I just feel better, I feel so much better. I feel healthier. And it’s proven in my blood work. It’s just awesome.

Nicole Brunelle Testimony

Nicole Brunelle Testimony

Hi my name is Nicki Brunelle, and I found this program from listening to KFI radio.

And what got me to the seminar to begin with was, one of the people on KFI, who talked about his dad having to have injections in his eyes. It scared me to death. So I thought, okay, now is the time. I had listened to the ads and not done anything but I thought, I’ve got to get to a seminar.

And I can’t tell you how glad I am that I did! I got to the seminar, and signed up immediately and was accepted into the program. And between then and now, my numbers are falling daily. Blood sugar levels are holding steady at right around 90, which is great, morning and night. A1c same thing, I was up over 6 and it’s now into the 5s. And this is only after a couple of months on the program, I’m fairly new to the program.

So I tell my friends all the time, my energy level has probably tripled. Two of the biggest things I thought could never be addressed were my cholesterol, I’ve been taking Crestor for probably 30 years and was told by every doctor that I had to continue to take it, that it was a family thing, that I could never get my cholesterol down just with diet or anything else.

I’m now off of Crestor, I’m happy to say. And I’m looking forward to getting off of high blood pressure medicine, so I’m monitoring my heart right now and it seems very good. They’re also treating me for thyroid which is all, I know, involved with the same disease and so this is working all the way around. I just can’t tell you, the staff here is phenomenal. I’ve never experienced anything like this. I, like many people, go to doctors, and they poo-poo you around, or they tell you just go home and lose some weight, or just tell you don’t eat sugar or these kinds of things. Absolutely not helpful.

I’m very sensitive to how my body feels and I would tell them, no its this, no its that. And they would look at me like, oh well this is just somebody complaining. And of you go and try to give you medicines I didn’t want to take. So I can’t tell you enough about this experience. I’ve told all my friends, I’ve told everybody that knows anybody that’s diabetic that has the desire and the will to do this program, that it works. It’s easy, I think, I mean, I haven’t had any problems at all.

Everybody is extremely helpful, you have everyone at your call if you need something you can just call and ask what’s going on, and they’re more than happy to help. So I can’t say enough good about it, and again, I’m only a little more than two months into the program and I’ve seen these great strides already and I can’t wait to see what I’ll be at the six month time!

McKenna Martin Testimony

Hi my name is McKenna and I just finished up and Next Advanced Medicine. I started this about six months ago, I had a thyroid disorder and we just got the results back today and I have no problems! It has been quite a journey and I am really glad I did it. I feel really good and I am excited to be healthy again. Everyone has been super nice and I have had no problems or anything related to staff. My doctor here really cared about me and my health, which was cool. I felt like it was like her mission to make me feel better. Before the program, I was super tired all the time, I would wake up in the morning and feel like I just could not get out of bed. Now I wake up and feel super energetic and fine, but before the program by mid day I just could not get out of bed. I just felt super tired all the time, but now I feel completely normal!
Kellie Long Testimony

Kellie Long Testimony

Hi my name is Kellie Long, and I’m here at Next and I started on September 1 st .

I have to tell you all, you’re going to be skeptical probably in the beginning, as I was. I was pretty much at the end of my rope as far as my A1C, it was over 8. I believe it was like, 8.6, my sugar was at 250. And I’ve been battling this for eight years and pretty much ignored most of it.

Until, a lot of symptoms started changing my life and my lifestyle. So I began with Next on the first of September. My husband heard about this program on KFI and he was really drawn to it and asked if I wanted to go to a free seminar so, skeptically, I told him yes. And they day came, and he said, ‘well, are we going to go?’ and I said well, I don’t know. And he said, ‘well, I really think that we should.” So I said okay, so we went. I was moved and motivated. Was I convinced? No. But as I said, I was at the end of my rope and my time of trying to find something to make me feel better.

I was tired all of the time, neuropathy in my feet, and stinging. I run my own business and you have to be motivated and energetic in order to have a successful business. So I went ahead and signed up, came in.

My first month was tough, but it was rewarding. There were nights when I felt like crying, and my husband kept telling me, ‘just hang in there, Kellie, it is getting better.”

My first blood test went from 250 on my sugar to 185. And today, I’m celebrating because it has gone down to 139! And my A1C is 6.1, maybe a little off but it is basically around the 6’s. I feel like celebrating tonight. I think I’m going to have me some vegetables or protein. But this is something worthy. And I believe that if you are skeptical, you feel like not drinking the koolaid, as I told my husband. I said, I’m going to try it.

I believe that you should definitely believe in the staff here. They’re friendly, they’re helpful, and they’ve been motivating and supportive to me and my needs. And have customized my program. And have brought out a lot of information, I now read labels more than I ever have in my life. And you, too, can learn how to have a better lifestyle. And to add icing on the cake we do not eat, I have lost about 20 pounds.

So, that is even better. I am feeling better, my feet are better, more feeling at the bottom of my feet, and I have an overall positive attitude. So I hope today, you will join. And it is good to network. I have had people ask me for my number, just meeting them in the hall. You can tell by the office that it is a good buzz and everybody is excited and motivated and wants to share their story. Feel free to talk to each other and support one another.

Jim Keys Testimony

Jim Keys Testimony

Hi my name is Jim Keys, I was considered diabetic when I started at 6.5 on my a1c, I am now 5.1.

I heard about the program on KFI, I was a bit skeptical but I thought, what have I got to lose? So I went to the dinner and met the doctor and she went over the program there. And the next day I met with her again and I signed up. It was the best thing I ever did. I had no idea that I was in need of this program, because I felt fine. I never felt like I had diabetes. However, my blood sugar was 416, and now I am at 95 to 100. I just can’t say enough about how good my clinician has been helping me with my diet, my exercise, and the supplements I’ve been taking. The staff has been incredible, very welcoming and always there when I needed them. I really didn’t have any symptoms before I started, but once we realized how serious this disease really is, it is truly a silent killer. Where you can feel good one day and the next day you wake up and you’re losing your eyesight or losing a leg.

I recommend this program to anybody, it’s well worth it and I’d do it again if I had to.
