Approximately 86 million Americans have pre-diabetes, and 58 percent of those people are capable of avoiding diabetes or delaying its onset, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Heart disease is often a complication of diabetes -- one that causes 65 percent of deaths in those with diabetes. 

Whether you've been recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or are looking to better manage your disease, the Mastering Diabetes Program can change your life, by helping you change your lifestyle.

The Mastering Diabetes Program combines the scientifically proven results of a plant-based diet with easy and effective exercises to achieve life-changing results. Conducted under the direction of Derrick Hall. Participants receive a customized regimen of diet, exercise, meal plans by dietitians and cooking demonstrations.

A medically supervised lifestyle modification program for individuals with type 2 diabetes

This program does not create a doctor patient relationship between a participant and Derrick Hall, all medication adjustments must be made by participants in conjunction with their prescribing physician.

Depending upon the participants health status and individual needs, the individualized plan will help each participant:

  • Improve blood sugar, hemoglobin A1C, blood pressure, weight and lipid numbers
  • Learn safe, easy and effective ways to exercise
  • Learn to improve diet with tasty recipes and healthy eating options
  • Reduce the number of necessary medications
  • Find support and encouragement from others dealing with diabetes
  • Take control of the disease and their lives

Participants in the Mastering Diabetes Program ultimately use less or even eliminate the need for medications.  Additionally, many participants are able to reverse the underlying causes of Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and obesity.
