Remember that T2 Diabetes is a lifestyle disease & can be managed & even reversed with a healthy lifestyle.

While medications can help manage the condition, they are not a cure. They have side effects & their dosage only increases overtime if you do nothing to fix your lifestyle.

Our Diabetes Care Program aims at managing the condition by addressing the root cause & making every possible lifestyle change to repair the organs & body, so that one can reduce dosages or stop it altogether.

If an unhealthy diet can cause diabetes, a healthy diet + lifestyle can help fix it!

Foods that improve blood sugar control & can slow the progression to T2 diabetes

▪️Srilankan roll cinnamon

▪️Fenugreek (methi)

▪️Physical activity

▪️Portion control

▪️Avoid refined foods

▪️Limit gluten

▪️Early dinners

▪️Circadian Rhythm fasting

▪️Adequate hydration

▪️Manage stress levels

▪️Quality sleep

▪️Follow the right flow of eating-

• Start with raw salad

• Then, cooked vegetables or vegetable soup

• Next, protein & fats (lentils/ chicken/ fish/eggs/ legumes)

• Finally, carbohydrates (grain/ starch/cereal)

This way, you not only eat smaller portions of carbs but also gain better control over blood glucose rise.
