Our Group Visits program debuts October 19th! A combination of learning, community, being supported and having a plan. This is something you can’t and won’t get from your doctor’s office. It’s our first group program in this format and I’m super excited to see it come to fruition.
Fall session will focus on diabetes and a few other conditions that stem from blood sugar dysregulation. It offers a completely different way of looking at pre-diabetes and diabetes, PCOS, and a type of weight loss-resistance driven by insulin resistance. You’ll receive new knowledge along with tools to manage and even reverse these conditions.
Why is this important? Approximately 10% of the American population has diabetes. That’s about 33 million people! Diabetes is a driver of heart disease and Alzheimer’s. It’s a progressive disease often ending in amputations and kidney failure for far too many.
And we can’t ignore that diabetes was also an underlying risk factor for many who have lost their lives to COVID-19. Time to turn the tables and make ourselves more resilient to any virus that comes our way.
So who is this program for? It’s for anyone who is ready to:
Group Visits are designed to give you the tools, knowledge, community and support needed to reverse a disease that is not only progressive but also debilitating over time.
- try a path other than traditional diabetes treatment and outcomes
- consider learning new things about this reversible disease
- lose stubborn weight
- look at solutions to the effects of PCOS (often caused by insulin resistance)
- show up for 10 weeks, stay curious, be accountable and be supported
- take baby steps for sustainable change
- laugh and be a little vulnerable
- feel better
- make a few mistakes and laugh about them
- help a loved one with diabetes
- cut back on medication
- reduce overall inflammation
- have fewer aches and pains
- keep their limbs and kidneys working (this is nothing to mess with)
- feel years younger
I’m offering two 9 week sessions this fall (yep, we’re in this together for the long haul :-)). Each 10 week session is $150, meets weekly for 1-1/2 hours and has room for 12 participants only. Every week you’ll receive instruction from me and an assignment (usually fun). The remaining time is for discussion and sharing. And of course, the meetings will be held virtually.
If this sounds like something you are ready for, then please register below. Choose the day and time that suits you best.
As always, I would love for you to pass this on to those who might be interested and could be helped.
I’m on a mission to help heal as many people as I can and take this type of program to mainstream medicine. You are getting in on the ground floor of this mission! There are a few doctors that have already incorporated Group Visits into their practices and are able to be reimbursed by insurance, making it a win-win for both the doctors and the patient.
This is how we’re going to heal and fix the health care system and ourselves–not by becoming more sophisticated with procedures or yet another new medication, but from knowledge, community and support to implement new ways of eating, thinking and living.
It’s my dream to be able to bring Functional Medicine to all, including those who need but cannot afford it, and to those who don’t even know yet what it is.
