On the evenings of March 28 and March 29, 2018 information Meetings were held in the 2nd Floor Boardroom at the Swan Valley Health Centre to explain the Diabetes Undone Program.

Diabetes Undone is an International Program that has been held across Canada and the United States for the last several years. The main presenters (via video) for the Program are Dr. Wes Youngberg, DrPH and Brenda Davis, RD, best-selling Author and Professional Dietician. Dr. Youngberg has been working with diabetics for the past twenty-five years. He has found that, by addressing the cause of illness rather than just treating the symptoms, type 2 diabetics can experience dramatic health improvements, avoid complications, and often reverse the condition.

Participants who attend the Program receive 12 hours of classroom education, a workbook, a cookbook, group support and a DVD called 12 Laws of Health. In addition, they have access online, for 1 year, to all of the approximately 40 videos used during the Program.

Participants in the Program learn how to form new habits and make better choices based on increased knowledge and group support. The Program is designed to empower participants to optimize their nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle choices, all of which enable them to reclaim their health. The same principles that are taught to fight diabetes also combat heart disease, obesity, cancer, autoimmune disease, and many other lifestyle-related health conditions.

“Really, it’s quite simple, the things I had to do. It wasn’t a hardship at all. Six months later, I was declared non-diabetic. I reversed it. And since then, I had extensive tests… and I’m still not diabetic or prediabetic. And that itself is the reward. —Tom Zapara, 91-year old Diabetes Undone Participant

The Diabetes Undone Program is provided as a Community Service by the Swan River Seventh-day Adventist Church.

It is too late to register for the Spring Diabetes Undone Program but a repeat of the Program is being considered for this fall. Anyone wanting more information about the Diabetes Undone Program being can contact David Ogram at david.ogram@gmail.com or phone 204-734-4868.
