Diabetes Reversal

How Does Diabetes Reversal Work?

Our program is based on clinical and scientific research conducted in the last decade, which has demonstrated that Type 2 Diabetes is a disease driven by two interrelated cycles that can be reversed.
We break down and simplify the science of Type 2 Diabetes progression and reversal here:
Our Approach

4+2 Strategy

Our program will teach you the 4+2 Diabetes Reversal Strategy, focusing on 6 key lifestyle behaviours, involving diet, sleep, light exercise, stress reduction, and more to manage insulin and restore fat burning.

4+2 is Different

Our approach asks you to make small steady changes that you can sustain. Better is more important than perfect.

No Calorie Counting

We focus on what to eat and when to eat, not how much you eat.

Common Sense & Whole Foods

We won’t ask you to put butter in your coffee, down nutritional shakes, or do anything else extreme. We apply only common sense & whole food principles.

Don’t Feel Hungry All the Time

Our bodies can naturally manage our appetite, as long as we feed them foods they recognize.

Moderate Exercise Only

Whether it’s walking, riding a bike, or running, we only ask you to do exercise you’re comfortable with and can maintain.

Changes You Can Sustain

We only ask you to make changes that you can sustain — eating foods you will enjoy and eating enough to feel full.

Learn Why, As Well As How

It’s easier to make changes and sustain them if you know why you’re doing them. We teach you the rationale for each change we ask you to make.

Reduce Blood Sugar & A1C

Bob, 73, lowered his HbA1C from 10% to 6.7%

I would highly recommend the program to family and friends... The program gave me the tools to reduce and balance my blood sugar. I only wish I had this information 10 years ago. I have always been interested in reading about diet and exercise and how it benefits the body but this provides very specific information in one place which I was not able to find elsewhere. I also found out that many things that I thought were healthy choices were actually not. I have gained a wealth of knowledge about diabetes.

Bob, age 73

Reach Your Goals

Alicia, 57, finally succeeded after 25 years with Type 2 Diabetes

I have been a type 2 diabetic for about 25 years and attended two previous in hospital clinics and been in the care of some pretty good specialists. What I have seen is the way diabetes is now approached and this program is an excellent example of that change in thinking. [This program] has created an integrated and functional approach and provides such a good understanding of the underlying causes and solutions to managing or even reversing type 2 diabetes. I couldn't recommend this program strongly enough!

Alicia, age 57


Frequently Asked Questions


No! Our program focuses on building a diet of whole foods - foods that your body can recognize and account for - and we work with you to implement changes that you can sustain. While our program can work for patients who eat keto or vegetarian diets, the vast majority of our patients do not.


Once you start the online sign up process, you will answer a few quick questions and then schedule an Intro Call with a member of our intake team.
