Type 2 Diabetes

Dr. Rick Shand Diabetes


You may be able to overcome your condition and start living the happy, healthy life of your dreams!

What if you could Reverse your Type II Diabetes? What if the medical establishment had it all wrong? Expensive and side-effect-laden prescription drugs and insulin injections may not be the best treatments for treating Type II Diabetes long term.

Most diabetics, when diagnosed worry about the effects of the disease. They worry about losing a limb or their eye sight. They worry about their kidneys, and their heart health. They worry about the effects on their family. And rightfully so! The effects of diabetes can be devastating. Unfortunately, it is one of the most mismanaged diseases out there today.

Diabetics feel the constant stress of their disease. The disease that causes them to take diabetic drugs, inject themselves with insulin, take high blood pressure medications, and cholesterol lowering drugs, and check their blood sugar levels several times a day...only to be frustrated and angry by the obvious signs that their treatment is not working. This often robs them of energy so they no longer have the will to participate as they once did in life. They give up.

If you have diabetes, this probably sounds familiar to you. We are here to let you know that there is another option. Our clinical model may be able to help you reverse your type II diabetes. We have seen patients who have been to multiple "experts" in the main stream medical field and were told there was nothing more they could do but continue to manage the disease with medication. They were wrong! Type II diabetes can be reversed. Medical research has proven it and we see it happen every day in our office.

How do we do this? When a patient is accepted into care in our office, they are given the attention and time needed to determine the REAL cause of their disease. Then we work to restore function to the body.

Low Thyroid

Many people suffer from low thyroid symptoms in spite of the fact that they are taking thyroid hormones or have been told by their doctor that their thyroid levels are “normal”.  This is often due to misdiagnosed thyroid conditions.  With proper testing and diagnosis there are natural treatments that may reverse your low thyroid condition!

Common symptoms a person may experience that may be helped in our office include:

Inability to lose weight - even with diet and exercise ● Fatigue ● Needing an excessive amount of sleep to function ● Having memory issues or a “foggy brain” ● Depression ● Emotional Instability ● Lack of motivation ● Hair loss or thinning of the hair ● Constipation ● Hot flashes ● Feeling cold all the time ● Decreased libido

Common causes of a low functioning thyroid are often completely missed due to inadequate testing and a general lack of understanding of the complexities of thyroid function.

Autoimmune Disease

An autoimmune disease occurs when your immune system, which defends your body against disease, targets your own cells as foreign invaders.  As a result, your immune system attacks healthy cells of your body.  Depending on the type of cell targeted, an autoimmune disease can affect many different types of body tissues leading to abnormal organ function.  The cells attacked in an autoimmune disease are diverse and can include the thyroid, heart, brain, kidneys, liver, pancreas, joints and skin.  This can lead to Hashimoto’s, dementia, multiple sclerosis, neurological issues, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and the list goes on and on…

The path with autoimmune diseases is typically a downward spiral.  Even with medication, health tends to deteriorate and abilities are lost.  Life can eventually feel like something impossible to survive for many patients.

Although there is currently no cure for autoimmune diseases, there are very effective treatments that have been shown to REVERSE the process of the diseases.  You can regain your health and abilities.  Life can be full and vital again!

Functional Medicine is a very precise and scientific analysis of the body’s systems that focuses on healing the underlying cause of disease.

It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of individuals and is being recognized as such by healthcare leaders such as Dr. Oz. Rather than diagnose you with a disease and medicate the symptoms of the disease, Functional Medicine doctors ask the question: “What is causing your disease?”, “What has happened in your body that has caused these symptoms to appear in the first place?” 

By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time learning about their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among environmental, lifestyle, and genetic factors that can influence the emergence and progression of disease.  Functional Medicine enables physicians and other health professionals to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine and empowers patients to take an active role in their own health. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. 

Common chronic conditions that can often be REVERSED with functional medicine include:

  • Type II Diabetes
  • Low Thyroid
  • Autoimmune Disease
