Overview

Diabetes is actually a hormone imbalance. Insulin, that processes sugar, is a hormone. Research is pointing more and more to the idea that sugar management plays a great roll in not only diabetes but cancer as well. The better our therapies for dealing with sugar, the healthier community we can create.
So let’s talk about Diabetes.
Diabetes and blood sugar issues are quickly becoming the leading cause of preventable death and disease. The obesity epidemic is at an all-time high, and controlling sugar is a critical part of dealing with this. As a large study told us, those who were able to maintain normal body weight were 80% less likely to have conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease in their 70s then those who were overweight. And as we mentioned, they may lessen chances of getting cancer as well. Managing diabetes is critical, and very possible.

Progressive Diabetes Management Program
In our diabetes program, patients are given a customized treatment plan that may combine supplements, exercise routine, physical therapies, iv therapies and dietary guidelines. The changes in each person are carefully monitored so we can see what works best for each individual. Talk to us at Progressive about this new model of care.

Integrative medicine is a comprehensive, science-based approach to medical care that draws on the best of many different specialties: natural medicine, allopathic (or conventional) medicine, diagnostic testing, nutrition, metabolism, detoxification, nutritional supplements, customized diets, acupuncture, chiropractic, and massage, among others. In integrative medicine, natural medical therapies are preferred as a way to mimic and enhance the body’s natural, healing abilities while minimizing unwanted side effects.

The focus is to address the underlying causes of illness, not just the symptoms, and to promote health of the whole person- mind, body, and spirit. If you are looking for a different approach to solving many of the medical issues and symptoms that plague millions of people around the world on a daily basis, then consider Progressive Medical Center.

The principles of integrative medicine:

  •     A partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process
  •     Investigate and address the underlying causes of illness, rather than treating only the symptoms (via diagnostic testing)
  •     Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response
  •     Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, body, spirit, and community
  •     A philosophy that critically evaluates and selects conventional medical and alternative therapies based on clinical outcomes and known side effects
  •     Recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open to new paradigms
  •     Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible
