We are a preventive health and wellness service and our goal is to help the general health of people suffering from pre-diabetes and diabetes. We hope to accomplish this by using natural supplements, education, and counseling around healthy eating habits.
Healthy Eating Habits Counseling
We offer counseling based on the National Diabetes Prevention Program, which developed a curriculum from a study implemented by the National Institutes of Health along with the US Department of Health and Human Services. This was the largest study of its kind. The results were eye-opening and were published in 2002: Type 2 diabetes can be prevented if the prediabetic individual loses 5%-7% of body weight, receives counseling around healthy eating habits, and does 150 minutes of physical activity per week. This counseling is included at no additional cost when you start drinking our tea supplement.

WHAT IS NEEM?
The neem tree has been used in India for over 4,000 years to treat various chronic and acute illnesses. However, information about its herbal and medicinal qualities have been accessible in the US only in the last 20 years. There are also a number of reports and studies that confirm the efficacy of neem as a treatment for different ailments. In his book, Neem: The Ultimate Herb, John Conrick explains that neem contains hypoglycemic qualities. This means that it helps promote a healthy balance of glucose in the blood system. Conrick also points out that other studies corroborate anecdotes where individuals claimed they stopped using insulin injections after a period of neem leaf consumption. To find more information about neem, you can also access the US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health (NIH). Here you will find over 800 reports and studies about need.
