Diabetes Isn't Necessary

Hello, folks. Dr. Michael Breen here with the Healthy Transformations program and healthytransformations.ca. That’s the site that you’re on right now. Myself and Christopher Lawrence run the Healthy Transformations program and just wanted to give you a little information today about one of the things that we have great success with and that in fact is Type 2 diabetes. Many people in culture these days are suffering from Type 2 diabetes. If they’re not there, they’re in a prediabetic state. Pretty much anyone who has been overweight for a period of time is in a prediabetic state and the incidence of these two phenomena combined represents a really significant proportion of the population. It’s kinda sad to consider that that’s the case. Once a person develops Type 2 diabetes in the full-blown state, different kinds of medications are often used to get the condition under control in the traditional medical model. Commonly, Metformin would be one of them and that’s to aid in lowering blood sugar levels and of course insulin is often prescribed for people, artificial insulin of course, not the self-produced insulin, to also bring down the blood sugar levels. What’s remarkable about the Healthy Transformations program is that by correct food modeling and I want you to really pay attention to this ’cause this is a big deal, by correct food modeling, you can lower your blood sugar and you can eliminate the need for insulin and Metformin simply by applying proper behavioral strategies.

 

In our program, we have had multiple insulin dependent Type 2 diabetics that are no longer taking insulin anymore. So the contemporary kinda forward thinking, research based, holistic scientific model is now saying that Type 2 diabetes is in fact a behavioral condition. Once you’ve got the condition or been told that you have it or diagnosed or labeled, does that mean that you have to deal with it for the rest of your life and the answer’s absolutely not. In many, many circumstances, the phenomenon of Type 2 diabetes actually can be changed. So if you are one of those people who are suffering from and have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes taking Metformin, taking insulin or even if you’ve been told that you’re in the prediabetic state, there is absolute hope. You do not have to deal with this for the rest of your life and quite honestly, you don’t want to. It’s a devastating disease and it’s deadly. The mortality from it is very high and it takes a long time to get there so you don’t feel well for a long, long time. Reach out to us at healthytransformations.ca. We have workshops about our program that will be running through December and we would be very happy to help. You could also reach out to Christopher Lawrence directly or myself, drmichaelbreen.ca and we’ll be able to direct you into the program to help you out and we’d be happy to help.

 

Patience and Changing Behaviour for Weight Loss and Health Acquisition

What Is Healthy Transformations (2020)?

It's NEVER too late to Focus on Health!

[VIDEO] Amrit's Story

Amrit – I’m Amritpal Grewal and I’m a mortgage broker for Iverico Mortgage Solutions and I process mortgages for a living. What brought me to the Healthy Transformations program was,

I was unhealthy at the time when I had joined. Unfortunately I had tried multiple different diets, a lot of different exercise programs and it was unfortunately filled with a lot of trial and error and a lot of failure unfortunately and I was just ready to try anything at that specific time, and that’s what brought me here.

 

The sum of the results that I had achieved in this program, the number one that sticks out in my mind is obviously the weight loss. The weight loss for the entire year was actually more than 60 pounds. So from my heaviest at 253 pounds, to coming down to 190 pounds and still counting. So that’s number one for me. The other things that I achieved were realizing a lot about my triggers. The triggers meaning what things are kind of going ahead and setting me off, what things I need to really watch out for that drive me off the program altogether. The foods specifically and how they made me feel, okay. So when we talk about greens, how they actually make me feel and then my thinking, how it actually goes ahead and changes. Learning a lot about my body and learning about the nutrition and what it does to my body on a day-to-day basis is what I really took away from the program altogether. The toughest part of my program was actually breaking the old habits that I actually had. So when we’re talking about socializing with friends, how to get past some of the challenges there that drive you away from the program. When we actually sit down and learn a lot about food and nutrition and some of the specifics about what goes into your body, automatically you really start to realize about how much you’re harming yourself with your old habits. When you actually put those goals on paper, when you put those achievements that you see yourself attaining through the entire year, that specifically really puts a lot of pressure, a positive impact of pressure on you to achieve what you set yourself out to do.

 

The best part of the program I think was the support that we have, so I mean continuously being on the program, you’re meeting every two weeks to talk about your struggles, to talk about your positive outcomes, to talk about what works, what doesn’t work. You’re in a team environment and you’re all here to achieve the same result, is to get healthy and so for me I think the easiest was just showing up. When you show up, half the battle is already done. So you’re learning so much about exactly what needs to be done and the other half is applying it,

so which comes naturally when you have all the support around you.

 

What I would say to somebody considering to join the program is don’t think about the cost point of view, think about what you really want to achieve out of the program. I would strongly encourage anyone to write down your goals, to really put it on paper, and to read them over and over again. If you think that it’s something that’s possible, it is definitely possible. For someone that like myself who had tried everything with trial and error. We used to go to the gym two times a day, morning for cardio and evening for weights. And we did a lot of gym training, unfortunately that didn’t even bring me close to my goals. What really did was the knowledge, the actual application of that knowledge as well, that really got me down to the weight that I wanted and is getting me to the body that I want as well.

 

I think anything else that I wanna add is do the program. It’s priceless, the knowledge that you actually are acquiring and to go ahead and be someone that your family goes ahead and looks up to. You’re doing your family a huge service in terms of being an excellent role model for them and I think it has so many different benefits, I can’t even list them right now, so join the program.

[VIDEO] Vicky's Story

Vicky – My name is Vicky Walter and I am a grandma and enjoy my life just doing what I need to do. I had a friend do the program and I really liked what I saw of her and she explained the program a little bit to me and that’s what drew me to the program, it was something that I thought I needed to try.

 

I am 297 days in. (laughing) And as far as goal wise, I am past my goal. I have lost 63 pounds. I have recommended a girlfriend to the program and I had to talk to her four times to just tell her and this is what I told her was you need this program, because she was a lot like me, with her body pains and issues and things like that and I knew that she could do the program and I knew it would make her very happy. So when I talk to people about the program, I explain it’s an anti-inflammatory program, not a weight loss. Weight loss is the bonus part of the program. The health issues are even better. So that’s how I explain to people why they should do the program.

 

Oh, I could just tell them my story, how good I feel and how good they would feel if they tried a little harder to stick to the program and that it would be so worth it to just try it and work a little harder because it is worth it. I can only say how good I feel and I get all these comments how good I look and that makes you feel even better and feeling good in your own skin again is good.

 

I kinda thought my life was going to be the weight that I was and feel as unhealthy as I felt, pain all the time. So my knees are good, I’ve had a knee replacement 14 years ago, saw my surgeon and he was amazed that they hadn’t changed in a year ’cause last year I was looking at another

replacement and he said it hasn’t changed so keep doing what I’m doing ’cause he was amazed how good I looked and how good my knees looked too. So that’s, that’s a kicker for me.
