Morbidity and Mortality
Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death listed on U.S. death certificates in 2006. This ranking is based on the 72,507 death certificates in 2006 in which diabetes was listed as the underlying cause of death. According to death certificate reports, diabetes contributed to a total of 233,619 deaths in 2005, the latest year for which data on contributing causes of death are available.
Diabetes is now at epidemic proportions in the US and it is getting worse every year. Most researchers blame the Standard American Diet (SAD) and a lack of exercise for this disease and believe the only way to stop this monster from terrorizing humanity is to re-educate and change the American peoples eating habits. In the past 10 years this epidemic had taken 100’s of thousands of lives and cost billions of dollars, it really is that bad and many people are ignorant of it until it is too late.
Because of the severity of this epidemic, Creative Health Institute (CHI) has stepped up and implemented a program that addresses the diabetes epidemic with our living foods diet and exercise. Together they have proven to be the critical elements in controlling this disease. We work shoulder to shoulder, almost on a weekly basis, helping our students reverse their diabetes.
By 2050, an estimated 48 million Americans will have type II diabetes as the epidemic continues unabated, according to new federal projections. We believe this epidemic can be turned around. Let your friends with diabetes know there is an alternative.

WASHINGTON (AFP) – British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline hid the dangers of its top-selling diabetes drug Avandia and secretly wrote scientific articles about it, two US lawmakers charged Tuesday. The allegations came as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) opened a two-day meeting of experts who will weigh whether to pull Avandia from the market over safety concerns. In a letter dated Monday and addressed to FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, Senators Max Baucus and Charles Grassley accused Glaxo of covering up scientific studies that found problems with Avandia and of including the drug in a “ghostwriting” program.
If you know of a friend or loved one who is suffering with diabetes have them get in-touch with Creative Health Institute (CHI). We have seen 100’s of people bring their blood sugar back to normal in as less than 3 weeks.

We believe every diabetic should have the opportunity to have a say in their treatment, and to try a natural holistic approach to addressing their disease before they are given over to a lifetime of dangerous medications.
We find that all of the students who come to us for the purpose of learning diabetes self-care management and taking personal charge of reversing the effects of their type II diabetes have been able to do so; In fact, all of them have learned how to address their diabetes challenge and have lowered or eliminated their need for diabetic medications.
From their first day with us, they begin experiencing the reversal of the effects of the disease and in as little as two to three day’s many of them experience the joy of seeing their blood sugar beginning to normalize.
It doesn’t’ matter what the cause of our student’s diabetes is, whether it’s due to lack of insulin, its ineffectiveness when the body fails to use the insulin properly, or their body is not producing enough insulin. So no matter what type of diabetes challenge our students face, they will be able to participate in the reversal process and experience a reduction or elimination of medications, by just following the dietetic changes we teach them.
“Maintaining a diet with more consumption of raw vegetables, five fruits a day, and plenty of water is highly recommended in beating diabetes naturally. Adding fiber to food consumption is good not only because it helps move the food out of the intestinal tract but also because their chromium content helps control the blood sugar level.” Roger Guzman, M.D.
We offer a safe and supportive environment, a place of learning where each student is taught, coached and encouraged, to take charge of their diabetes health challenge. All of our regular, as well as our diabetic students, benefit from our detoxification/rebuild program which works hand in hand with their eating the most nourishing foods on the planet which are inclusive of Dr. Ann Wigmore’s living foods lifestyle, health, and wellness technologies.
Students who have participated in the diabetes reversal program have been able to drastically lower or eliminate their diabetic medications within 30 days. Everyone deserves to take control of their health and enjoy the freedom from medications and the side effects associated with having to take any kind of diabetic medication.
With more than 5 million people taking insulin every day, the measure of success for a diabetic should be how little medication they need to control their blood sugar levels. As the above quote indicates, many doctors because of excessive patient loads and not enough hours in the day, find it impossible not to prescribe potentially harmful medications, not having the time to help their patients implement health strategies and technologies that would lower or in most cases eliminate the need for diabetic medications. Many of our students have come to us and found they missed the warning signs associated with diabetes. There are six signs of uncontrolled blood sugar:
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should immediately seek medical care. Once you have met with your doctor and have stabilized your blood sugar, this is the time to begin considering alternative health strategies, designed to strengthen your immune system and enable you to control your blood sugar with little or no medication.
Remember, if left unchecked, diabetes can lead to many other health complications, including amputation, cardiovascular disease, stroke, high blood pressure, kidney disease, blindness, nervous system disease, and death.
We hope this health update and management protocol will make a positive difference in your life or the life of someone you know. Please pass this information on to anyone who may benefit from knowing more about diabetes or who may want to attend the institute and work on reversing their diabetes.
Do not forget we are here to help and support you in learning how to take control of your health, no matter whether you are newly diagnosed or just needing to taking preventative measures. If you would like to get more information about us or like to sign up to attend one of our retreats or participate in one of our programs, just fill out the contact form or call us.
