How Naturopathy Can Help Type II Diabetes

on May 30, 2016

How did you find Genevieve?

I had just been given fairly bad news from my endocrinologist about my kidneys and I sought advice (from as it turned out to be) Genevieve at the Vitamin Shoppe at North Rocks.

How was your health when you first came to see Genevieve?

I had been struggling to get my blood sugar under control (I am a Type 2 diabetic) and my results had just continued to get worse from the time that I had consulted the endocrinologist (my GP had been treating me prior to this). If my 3 month blood sugar reading had not improved when I went back to the endocrinologist then I was informed that I would be placed on insulin.

I had also lost my husband with terminal lung cancer 14 months prior to finding Genevieve and although there was no direct link established, I had recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called lichen planus. I had suffered periods of sub optimal mental health since having my son in 1992 and suffering post natal depression for 2 years prior to diagnosis. It was suggested that I may have pyrroles disorder. A thyroid test also showed my thyroid was not functioning correctly.

How has your health changed since you started treatment?

The first issue was to address my blood sugar levels and by the 3 month check this had reduced by 40% on previous readings. I texted Genevieve to thank her for her help in reducing this issue, and preventing me at this stage from need to take insulin.  Genevieve researched lichen planus and I am also taking regular medication to try and reduce the effects of this condition.

When I return for an oral biopsy they were unable to confirm this disorder and am being monitored every 6 months for possible developments which hopefully will not occur with naturopathic medication (raspberry leaf).

I have only recently started treatments for pyrroles and my thyroid. I have the utmost confidence in Genevieve’s advice on these issues and  will continue to follow her advice.

Do you have any advice for others?

I was absolutely astounded by my blood sugar results that were achieved and look forward to improved health in the future with Genevieve’s guidance.

My advice is to seek Genevieve out and soon (and never loose sight of her). She is a brilliant professional and I will continue to trust her with my heath. You absolutely should try this as it works!
