The obesity epidemic is among the biggest health challenges of the modern world, and the UAE is not immune, with obesity rates at double the global average. While the aesthetic aspect of excess weight can damage your self-esteem, it is the impact on your health that is most devastating. Being overweight or obese can lead to several life-threatening cardio-metabolic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, cancer and even dementia. Read More
The Novomed Integrative Medicine Weight Loss Programme yields safe and consistent results. We focus on both reducing fat and reversing the damage caused by excess weight. This is carried out through a three-step methodology to ensure that the weight is not regained once you achieve your desired results.
It’s not a sprint. It’s a marathon
We start with smart testing to map 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 traditional physicians, to believe that once you are diagnosed with diabetes, you will remain a diabetic needing medication. The truth is that in about 50% of our diabetic patients, we succeed in reversing diabetes 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 making regular trips to a doctor for the rest of your life. This would hold true if traditional methods of treating Type 2 diabetes were the only tools available.
Our experts have developed a Diabetes Reversal Programme that addresses the root causes of Type 2. We provide education and awareness, as well as a ketogenic diet or specialised diet plan tailor-made for your lifestyle and nutritional needs. We also use diverse, high-grade therapeutic supplements and optimise your hormones and mitochondrial function (small cell furnaces in the body that reduce insulin resistance and produce the energy needed for repair, healing and immune functions).
It is essential to break the vicious cycle of insulin resistance, which triggers bingeing on refined sugars, followed by hypoglycemia, adrenaline and cortisol surges, with the repetition of further insulin secretion and resistance. Without doing so, 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 could result in heart attacks, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s, blindness, amputations, kidney failure, cancer, painful neuralgias and more. The Novomed Integrative Medicine Diabetes Reversal Programme has brought tremendous results for patients.
