Diabetes – The Healthy Solution

Would you rather create a healthy life than learn to live with disease?

  Would you like to dramatically reduce your insulin or live without it?

Would you rather be treated as an intelligent person than a helpless patient?

If the answer to these questions is yes – this programme is for you.


Diabetes is a debilitating disease that has now reached epidemic proportions.  Government figures show the rate of diabetes rising toward 3 million with another 5 million plus diagnoses as obese in the UK. Most of the cases of diabetes are Type 2, an illness that is not only preventable but in most cases can be reversed or dramatically improved.  We know that is a bold statement but it is a true one.

The most effective way to improve or cure diabetes is to eliminate the causal factors and reverse the disease process. This means learning to transform the daily habits of diet, activity and mentality that contribute to the disease.  We do not use any miracle remedies or mystical mantras; only solid common sense, nutrition and practical life skills.

Our medically monitored programme is centred on teaching a fool-proof diabetes dietary programme of delicious natural foods and, simple exercises and by promoting our personal capacity to take charge of our health.  This is achieved through a daily schedule of hands-on cooking classes, individualised exercise programmes and informative talks that teach you to better understand your condition and make healthy life choices.

Each client will have an initial  ‘one to one’ personal consultation with one of our qualified programme leaders, be given personal attention during their stay and have dietary adjustments made specifically for their individual needs. Since many people who suffer from diabetes have weight issues, healthy weight loss will be accomplished during the programme as well a follow-up programme for the following months.

Fourteen days to a new and healthier life!

Our Diabetes Programme combines the residential course of fourteen days at Penninghame House after which our clients leave us with a two week Diabetes Diet Starter Pack of ingredients and recipes.  Participants are also given support and on-line help after they leave us so that our experts can guide them in the continuation of the journey they started during their stay.

Our two week Diabetes Programme is now complemented by our short course available on DVD.

The three hour course consists of three DVDs looking at 5 Myths About Diabetes; Health and Habit; Ten Tips for Healthy Eating; Nutritional Stress; Introducing Whole Foods, Exercise. The DVDs also include cooking demonstrations and recipe suggestions for tasty, healthy food which will help you to improve your diabetes.

The most effective way to improve or cure diabetes is to eliminate the causal factors and reverse the disease process. Our DVD programme will help you better understand your condition how to make healthy life choices.
