MDs Fail to Promote Prevention
A Bastyr University study showed that patients with type 2 diabetes who were being followed by MDs did better in controlling blood sugar levels when they received naturopathic care over 6 months. This points out that MDs don't practice the lifestyle measures that naturopaths recommend. Prevention is for the most part given lip service in mainstream medicine.
Conventional medical treatment for type 2 diabetes with drugs is complicated by serious side effects. If we're going to bring real health care reform into America, we need to focus on lifestyle measures that promote wellness and prevention!
