Holistic Health & Type 1 Diabetes
Just like a garden needs attention to multiple areas to flourish, our T1D bodies need attention to multiple areas for optimal health.
This idea of treating the body as a whole unit (as opposed to treating it by its individual parts) is the principle behind holistic health.
What this looks like in real life:
💊 Conventional Medicine (treating the body by it’s individual parts) = Insulin is Insulin. When it doesn’t work you just give more (or less).
👩 Holistic Medicine (treating the body as a whole) = Insulin sensitivity can be improved by improving other areas of the body, like
- increasing muscle mass
- optimizing mineral & nutrient stores
- balancing hormones
