My son recommended Dr. Carla Hightower, and I have been meeting with her now for two months. Using her health coaching program, I am eating whole foods, and I have seen a vast improvement in my overall health and I no longer need insulin for my type 2 diabetes. My blood sugar went from 436 to 82 and my A1C went from 11.7 to 5.2
When I started, my A1C was right at 6.9 and blood sugars were anywhere from 137 to 226. In one doctor’s visit I was diagnosed as diabetic and prescribed 4 medicines. My dad is currently on dialysis, and both my maternal and paternal grandmothers, along with several aunts suffered with diabetes. It was then I knew I had to do something different. I joined Dr. Carla’s whole-food, plant-based program. It changed my life. After 3 months in the program, I am down 20 pounds, my blood sugars average 99 (fasting) to 130 two hours post meals and my A1C is 5.8.
While medicines and insulin treat the problem, they don’t address the root of the problem. The whole-food, plant-based nutritional lifestyle does. And you will learn this in sessions with Dr. Carla. It takes discipline. It takes preparation. And it takes patience. But you have to understand it is not a diet, but a lifestyle change. The support group is amazing, and you are not in this alone. I am proof that you can live a life free from diabetes
I can honestly say that the 3 months that I have been a part of the Living Health Works program administered by Dr. Hightower my entire life has changed. I committed to working with her to help me improve my health by creating lifestyle changes. After 3 months, my blood sugar in the morning is 118 to 138 and improving day by day. The days when I can ride the bike or walk/run, my numbers are in the 90’s. I am no longer tired. I no longer have the swollen joints, the high blood sugars, the feet tingling from neuropathy, or the dizziness. The goal was healthy living and lifestyle changes, but I have also lost a substantial amount of weight, a good 20 pounds. I am now more confident in all areas of my life. My interaction is better and my thought process is clearer. My fear of traveling alone has gone away and the list goes on. If you want to see quick results and are tired of the highs and lows of type 2 diabetes, I would highly recommend this program. My life has changed forever, and I am so pleased with how this program has changed me.
After losing the weight, I love the way my clothes fit. I love the way I am feeling these days. Some days I feel like I’m in heaven because I feel so great.
You are a wonderful teacher.
I. When I was diagnosed, my A1C was 6.4 (diabetic = 6.5). I called Carla and enrolled in her health coaching program. After 10 weeks, my A1C is reading a healthy 5.6 and I lost 11 pounds. Thank you Lord. Carla is very knowledgeable, patient and professional. I improved my numbers fairly quickly and got back to living a normal healthy lifestyle.
My mom is really doing well. We been practicing the plant based diet since we spoke. She was able to cut down on her insulin tremendously. She used to take 24 units daily. Now she takes 4-7 units per day. 4 units in the morning and 3 units at night depending on what she eats for dinner. Some nights she can go without insulin at night time. Her morning blood sugars are under 100. Last time when we checked the A1c it decreased from 9.5 to 8. I am sure if I check it now it will be much lower. She has more energy and doesn’t feel tired. Definitely her overall health improved. I truly appreciate all your advice and guidance I cannot express my gratitude towards you in words. I truly truly appreciate you. You are a blessing. God bless.
