I was on my way to complete utter destruction! A Type II diabetic, my A1c was much too high at 10.2, which prevented me from having the surgery I needed. I was invited to a Reverse Diabetes workshop put on by the Central Coast Center for Integrative Health and had a nice dinner with Dr. Tiffany and Dr. Brent at Red Lobster. I listened to what they had to say and was intrigued. I decided to set an appointment for a consult and not long afterward had my first session with Dr. Brent. He was easy to talk to and helped me feel relaxed and calm. He also inspired me to feel hopeful that I could improve my health, so I signed up for a six-month program. The first month was a challenge—it was trying—but I persevered. I knew I had to get my A1c down. Now, after three months, I feel differently. Now I feel like I have the world in my hands! My A1c is down to 6.5 and things are looking brighter. I’m eating healthier, I’m feeling better, I’ve had the surgery I needed and it was successful. Now that my blood sugar is down, I look forward to maintaining stable blood glucose levels, reducing my diabetes medications, and continuing to improve my health. I would like to thank Dr. Brent and Dr. Tiffany and the CCFIH staff, Liz and Katie for being so positive and helpful. This has been a game-changer.
