In Diabetes, an Integrated Approach, one of the world’s leading health and wellbeing authors, Barefoot Doctor, explores orthodox methodologies and some powerful alternatives to treating and managing Diabetes.

This DVD set explains what diabetes is and also what treatments are available both mainstream and also some alternatives that have proven very successful for many people. Things like acupuncture, diet, herbal medicines, breathing, heat treatment, yoga, homeopathy and many more.

There are most commonly two types of diabetes:

Type 1.
Type 1 diabetes develops if the body is unable to produce any insulin. This type of diabetes usually appears before the age of 40. Type 1 diabetes is the least common of the two main types and accounts for between 5 – 15% of all people with diabetes.

Type 2.
Type 2 diabetes develops when the body can still make some insulin, but not enough, or when the insulin that is produced does not work properly (known as insulin resistance). In most cases this is linked with being overweight. This type of diabetes usually appears in people over the age of 40, though in South Asian and African-Caribbean people often appears after the age of 25. However, recently, more children are being diagnosed with the condition, some as young as seven. Type 2 diabetes is the most common of the two main types and accounts for between 85 - 95% of all people with diabetes.

There are currently over 2.5 million people with diabetes in the UK and there are more than half a million people with diabetes who have the condition and don’t know it (Source www.diabetes.org.uk)

The signs and symptoms of Diabetes are:

  • Increased thirst
  • Going to the loo (for a wee) all the time – especially at night
  • Extreme tiredness
  • Weight loss
  • Blurred vision
  • Genital itching or regular episodes of thrush
  • Slow healing of wounds

In Type 1 diabetes the signs and symptoms will usually be very obvious, developing quickly, usually over a few weeks.

Although Diabetes cannot be "cured" it can be treated very successfully:

Type 1 diabetes is treated by insulin injections and a healthy diet, and regular exercise is recommended. Insulin cannot be taken by mouth because it is destroyed by the digestive juices in the stomach. People with this type of diabetes commonly take either two or four injections of insulin each day. If you have Type 1 diabetes, your insulin injections are vital to keep you alive and you must have them every day.

Type 2 diabetes is treated with lifestyle changes such as:

  • A healthier diet
  • Weight loss
  • Increased physical activity

Tablets and/or insulin may also be required to achieve normal blood glucose levels. There are several kinds of tablets for people with Type 2 diabetes. Some kinds help your pancreas to produce more insulin. Other kinds help your body to make better use of the insulin that your pancreas does produce. Another type of tablet slows down the speed at which the body absorbs glucose from the intestine. Your doctor will decide with you which kinds of tablet are going to work best for you and may prescribe more than one kind. Type 2 diabetes is progressive. If your diabetes cannot be controlled through lifestyle changes and tablets your doctor may recommend that you take insulin injections.

In people with Type 2 diabetes the signs and symptoms will not be so obvious or even non-existent in people with Type 2 diabetes. If you’re older you may put the symptoms down to ‘getting on a bit’. Taking early action is key so if any of the symptoms apply to you, ask your GP for a diabetes test.

In both types of diabetes, the symptoms are quickly relieved once the diabetes is treated. Early treatment will also reduce the chances of developing serious health problems.

The main aim of treatment of both types of diabetes is to achieve blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol levels as near to normal as possible. This, together with a healthy lifestyle, will help to improve wellbeing and protect against long-term damage to the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and major arteries.

In Diabetes, an Integrated Approach some of the world's foremost leaders in their fields discuss the benefits of alternative medicine to assist in the treatment of Diabetes and it's benefits.

They are Dr Mosaraf Ali, Dr Jeam Monro, Dr George Lewith, Dr John Mnasfield, Archna Patel, Tom Chapman, Jonathan Welbeck Pure, Alistair Monro, Professor Dame Julia Polak, Professor Michael Patton, John Tindall, Jody Scheckter, Dan Kahn, Caroline Cladding and Kathy Lethbridge.
