The obesity epidemic is among the biggest health challenges of the modern world, and the UAE is not immune to this epidemic with obesity rates at a staggering double of the global average. While the cosmetic aspects of excess weight influence self-esteem, it is the impact on health that is devastating. Being overweight or obese can lead to several life-threatening cardio-metabolic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, cancer and even dementia.
The Novomed Integrative Medicine Weight Loss Program yields safe and consistent results. We focus both reducing fat and on reversing the damage caused by excess weight. This is carried out with a three-step methodology to ensure that the weight is not regained once you achieve the desired results.
It’s not a quick race. It’s a marathon.
We start with smart testing to map out your overall level of health – checking key vital signs, a dozen different body composition measures, and several key hormone levels.
It is a common misconception even among most traditional physicians to believe that once you are diagnosed with diabetes, you will always remain a diabetic needing medications. The truth is that at Novomed, we succeed in reversing diabetes in about 50% of our diabetic patients without subjecting them to gastric sleeves or gastric bypass surgery. By the time you are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, you may think that it is too late to do anything other than adopt a pill plan and spend the rest of your life visiting the doctor for ongoing management of this potentially devastating illness. This would hold true if traditional methods of treating Type 2 diabetes were the only tools available.
Our experts have developed a Diabetes Reversal Program that addresses the root cause of Type 2, namely, through education and awareness added to a ketogenic diet or other specialized variations that suit your individual taste buds, lifestyle and nutritional needs. We also use diverse, high-grade therapeutic supplements as well as optimizing your hormones and mitochondrial function (small cell furnaces in the body that reduces insulin resistance and produce the energy needed for repair, healing and immune functions).
If you do not break the vicious cycle of insulin resistance that triggers binging on refined sugars, followed by hypoglycemia, adrenaline and cortisol surges, with the repetition of further insulin secretion and resistance, the dangerous cycle continues. In this case, it would be impossible to control your Type 2 diabetes even with the most effective medicines.
After all, if not properly controlled, this is a disease that can have a devastating impact on the body, resulting in heart attacks, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s, blindness, amputations, kidney failure, cancer, painful neuralgias and more. The Novomed Integrative Medicine Diabetes Reversal Program has brought tremendous results for numerous clients in the UAE suffering from this disease.
