Diabetes is a serious health disease in which the body cannot produce enough insulin. As a result, excessive sugar builds-up in the blood, leading to potentially serious problems with the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and blood vessels.
Currently, there is no known conventional medicine cure for diabetes. It is typically managed through insulin injections and/or strict dietary control.
At The Centre For Integrated Health, we develop health improvement programmes tailored to the needs of each individual, and the type and severity of their diabetes. We pay very close attention to dietary habits and other lifestyle factors that can contribute to blood sugar mismanagement, and we often recommend supplementation. While we recognize that there is no “cure” for diabetes, we can offer support to help alleviate symptoms and help you manage the condition efficiently and effectively. In some rare causes, insulin-dependent diabetics who have even been treated at The Centre have been able to come off insulin!
Diabetes is a life-changing disease that affects sufferers, their families, and their friends. We understand how stressful and frightening this disease can be. We invite you to call us for a supportive and individualised review of your specific treatment options. While we cannot promise to cure diabetes (nobody can promise that), we can potentially provide you with measurable improvement so that you can manage your diabetes confidently and comfortably.

For thousands of years, humans have been accustomed to a selection of natural foods that have provided us with all the essential nutrients. Todays diet is vastly different to that of our ancestors, and one of the most widespread nutritional deficiencies is of essential fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs are the building blocks of the membranes in our cells. Most of these EFAs can be synthesized by our bodies, but the two that have to be supplemented through diet are Omega 3 and Omega 6. The body functions best when these are in a balance ration of 1:1, but because our modern diet is so high in Omega 6s, a typical ration is around 25:1. Large quantities of Omega 3 are therefore necessary to redress this balance.Flaxseed oil is the richest source of Omega 3 fatty acids yet found anywhere in the world. It also has a high Lignan content. Lignan is a gentle plant hormone that is the key to estrogenic balance in the body. Omega-3 oils have been shown to help reduce heart disease, strokes, and inflammatory diseases, and are linked to many other positive health results. Nearly every system in the body can benefit from flax seed oil's natural properties, including the cardiovascular system, immune system, circulatory system, reproductive system, nervous system, as well as joints. It also contains omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, lecithin, magnesium, fiber, protein, and zinc.
