Dr. Bhakti Paul explains in detail how she changed her medical practice to enable her to reverse diabetes in her patients rather than simply tracking their blood sugar and increasing medications to adapt. She spends time with her patients, educates them, and encourages them to take the steps to end their diabetes. In her interview with Dr. Bret Sher on the Diet Doctor Podcast she outlines her reason for opting out of the large clinical setting and her approach to getting patients off of medications.
Having coached quite a few diabetic clients, I have found it very frustrating to see the number of medications grow, the lack of attention to lifestyle and diet, and the increasing stress to the diabetic patient. Nothing gives me more joy than watching a client take charge, educate themselves and sometimes their doctor, and rather rapidly banish diabetes from their docket! A pill for an ill is NOT the solution! When will our conventional medical system put health above profit? Imagine what the world would be like if we had more doctors like this!
