Energy Healer and Diabetic Reversal Coach were Guests.

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

My guests this week were Diane Goldner, an energy healer and author, and Denise Parchrz, a diabetic reversal coach and author.

Diane Goldner graduated cum laude from Barnard College, and began her career as a journalist. She has written for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, American Health and other publications, and has served as editor for Variety and USA weekend. While doing research for an article, she was introduced to the field of Energy Healing and began to study it further. Now, 20 years later, Diane is an internationally known healer. She is based in Los Angeles, but also has offices out of New York. She does long distance healings all over the country and internationally. Diane is currently listed as a recommended resource by Christiane Northrup, M.D., and her books are recommended by Bernie S Siegal, M.D and Dr. Mehmet Oz.

In addition to the 3 books Diane has written, her work has been published in many magazines and websites, including on Money.com, and recently in US News and World Reports.

Diane’s work focuses on bypassing our usual resistance and working with the mental body at a deeper level (super conscious and unconscious) to create a foundation for healing a number of different aspects of a person’s life. She has a wide range of examples on how she has worked with clients to heal from a variety of illnesses and injuries, work on strengthening and defining relationships, fertility and even deal with financial issues.

Denise Pancyrz is a national holistic lifestyle coach specializing in diabetes reversal, speaker and author of The Virgin Diabetic: Reverse the Effects of Type 2 Diabetes, Reduce Medication, and Improve Your Glucose Levels, Second Edition.  Like millions of Americans, she was burdened with type 2 diabetes, prescribed a handful of medications, four daily insulin shots, and endless trips to the doctors.  After hearing from the medical community there was no hope to stop the insanity, Denise realized she needed a new course to regain her health naturally. Denise restored her health.  No more medication – no more insulin injections – no worry of drug side effects.

Denise is certified in Holistic Nutrition and Homeopathy. A Certified Six Sigma Green Belt, Denise spent a decade in the laboratory industry. After she received her diabetes diagnosis, she created her blueprint to reverse the deadly effects of diabetes. Denise’s blueprint paves the way for diabetics to truly learn how to reduce or eliminate medication and insulin while improving their glucose levels.

Denise’s journey started in Chicago until she and her husband, Larry, found their paradise in Naples, Florida.  Denise and Larry love to walk on the beach, golf, and enjoy all that Naples has to offer.

Denise is co-Chair for Blue Zones Project® Retail Food Committee—Southwest Florida, Board Chair of the non-profit Patient Education Movement, Inc., member of the American Nutrition Association, the Marco Island Chamber of Commerce, and Marco Island Sunrise Rotary Club.

Use Alternatives to Reduce Type 2 Diabetes Risks

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

John LaGrace, National Awareness Director, DrugWatch.com was kind enough to provide the following guest blog written by his staff on alternatives to reduce Type 2 diabetes. I hope you enjoy it.

__________________________________________________________

Doctor Mark Hyman, author of the “The Blood Sugar Solution,” described diabetes as a foodborne illness. While the exact cause of diabetes isn’t well understood there is a recognizable link between fat buildup from unhealthy foods and the onset of the disease. The American Diabetes Association says that about 50 percent of men and 70 percent of women are obese when they are diagnosed.

This link between obesity and type 2 diabetes opens up the door to exciting possibilities for naturally fighting symptoms. Even if a person isn’t obese, adjusting their amount of exercise and beginning a healthy diet can drastically reduce symptoms. Doctors say that patients only need to lose 5 to 10 percent of their body weight to see an improvement.

The Look AHEAD study showed that people with type 2 diabetes benefit the most from natural treatments when they seek out the help of professionals like dieticians and personal trainers. Doctors should also be consulted before attempting to modify your exercise or diet to treat diabetes. With a combination of expert guidance you can develop a well-rounded and effective treatment plan. In the Look AHEAD study people with type 2 diabetes who received professional guidance were able to keep significant weight off consistently, while those who didn’t saw fewer results.

Medical studies show a combination of diet and exercise are the most effective natural treatments to reduce diabetes symptoms. Exercise helps sensitize the body to insulin, which lowers blood sugar. It also reduces harmful cholesterol, which reduces the risk of congestive heart failure.

Patients should begin their lifestyle changes progressively. After talking to a Doctor they can begin to make conservative changes in diet and exercise, and then see how their body reacts. By pacing themselves people avoid potentially over stressing their body, or lowering their blood sugar too rapidly. As the body adjusts to a new health routine people can gradually increase the aggressiveness of their natural treatment.

The health risks of congestive heart failure and stroke are serious side effects associated with diabetes medications are serious and should be addressed. In fact, the FDA has issued a black-box warning on type 2 diabetes medication, Actos, because of its link with congestive heart failure. This has resulted in many users filing an Actos lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Having type 2 diabetes may make changing diet and regular exercise more difficult, but with enough discipline people may actually be able to beat the disease. One British study showed that with dramatic lifestyle intervention type 2 diabetes can actually be reversed in some patients.

The American Diabetes Association says that people can have an impact on their symptoms by starting to exercise 30 minutes a day for five days a week. Exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous either. Working around the house or walking is sufficient to improve heart health and reduce the risk of diabetes related symptoms. Be sure to warm up before jumping into a fitness routine, and always consult your doctor about beginning natural treatment.

Type 2 Diabetes Risk May be Reduced by Adequate Levels of Vitamin D

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

A new study from Germany to be published in the scientific journal Diabetes Care concluded that the Vitamin D status of individuals is inversely related to type 2 diabetes risk and the association may be partially related to sub-clinical inflammation. Thus, those with a good level of vitamin D have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared to those with lower levels. The researchers used a cohort design in which 416 cases of type 2 diabetes and 1,267 controls without the disease were selected from a population of 7,936 middle-aged people in a population based group in the Cooperative Health Research in the Region of Augsburg (KORA) study. The study evaluated chronic disease especially cardiovascular disease and diabetes by assessing the influence of environmental factors, behavior and genes on human health. Some factors studied iwere lifestyle factors including smoking, diet, and exercise, environmental factors included air pollution and noise, and genetics.
Researchers found a significant inverse association between serum 25-OHD and the incidence of type 2 diabetes after adjusting for diabetes risk factors and season. More research is planned.

Risk of Type 2 Diabetes May be Decreased by Using a Dietary Supplement

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Research published last week in the online edition of the peer-reviewed journal PLoS One concluded that an over-the-counter dietary supplement may help prevent Type 2 diabetes by inhibiting the development of insulin resistance and glucose intolerance.
In their early preliminary study, a naturally produced amino acid-like molecule named GABA was given to obese mice that were insulin resistant and in the early stages of Type 2 diabetes. They found that GABA supressed the inflammatory immune response involved in the development of the condition. The authors said GABA helped prevent the progression and also improved glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity even after the onset of Type 2 diabetes. Consequently, they believe this may be a new therapeutic intervention in the future for treating obese-related Type 2 diabetes.
