Currently diabetes is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use the insulin necessary for the body to absorb glucose (sugar). The glucose then accumulates in the blood-stream until levels get dangerously high. Diabetes affects an estimated 18 million people and there are another 15 million not yet diagnosed, just in the United States alone. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.
In order to manage this condition, it is essential for people with diabetes to make healthy lifestyle choices in diet, exercise, and other health habits. In order to treat diabetes, TCM offers a way to address each patient individually to eliminate the symptoms associated with diabetes and reduce the glucose levels in the blood-stream. There are many treating techniques to be chosen to use during treatment including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, bodywork, lifestyle/dietary recommendations and energetic exercises.
