Fighting Diabetes

Remission for Type 2 Diabetes? Yes, it’s possible!

About 90% of the diabetes in Canada is Type 2 Diabetes. Studies in Canada and the United States have shown that if you do the work, there’s a good chance you can put your Type 2 Diabetes into remission, what some people are calling “reverse” your diagnosis

10-week Fighting Diabetes starter program

London location only

If you have extended health benefits from your employer, some or all the cost for this program may be covered by your benefits. Our Staff is happy to assist you to find out if this program and other services are covered under your extended health care policy or benefits.

It’s going to be work. It won’t be easy. The Fighting Diabetes Starter program from Our Clinic is designed with that understanding – it’s going to be hard work. You need personal motivation, the knowledge to make the change and the tools to do it. We provide that motivation, educate you so you make informed decisions and give you the tools to change your life.

Why do this instead of just changing my diet?

Changing your diet is a good step to fighting your diabetes however it takes more to point you in the direction of possible remission.

The right kind of exercise – something designed just for you based on clinical studies and science – complements modifications in your diet. Your personal kinesiologist works with you and your team of experts at Our Clinic to make sure every exercise counts.

You get diet design and support as well from a highly educated, experienced dietitian. The dietitian coaches and motivates you on your journey to the good choices that can change your life.

Mental wellness is a key to the success of any change in your life. The Fighting Diabetes program recognizes this and incorporates mental wellness into your plan.
