Dr. Beyer Talks About Reversing Type 2 Diabetes

Many people ask me is it possible to really reverse Type 2 Diabetes? The answer to that question is a resounding yes!

Type 2 Diabetes affects approximately 29.1 million Americans (9.3%)
8 million are undiagnosed

Type 2 Diabetes is implicated in all of the following chronic illnesses:

  • Obesity
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Depression/anxiety/memory loss/dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Balance disorders/vertigo
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Digestive disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Kidney failure
  • Chronic skin problems
  • Gingivitis/periodontitis
  • Blindness/ visual problems
  • Kidney failure
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Cardio vascular disease
  • Cancer

Insulin is a very important hormone that puts useless blood glucose into your cells where it is used as energy. Simply put, in Type 2 Diabetes, there is not too little insulin (as many think) but  too much! When insulin is elevated for a period of time cells get desensitized to it and it can no longer do their job. The symptoms of chronically high levels of insulin then become the same as if it was low.

When cells stop listening to insulin this is known as insulin resistance. A good analogy is if your boss was yelling at you and you could not quit your job. Eventually you would tune the boss out. This is what happens in insulin resistance or Type 2 Diabetes.

What is the medical solution to this? Well our pharmaceutically driven medical system’s “standard of care” is to give you medication that basically increase your insulin even more! This is equivalent to your boss yelling at you louder and louder! It might work for a while but eventually communication will breakdown.

From a functional medicine point of view the culprits behind elevated blood sugar and elevated insulin have to be identified and removed. There are many more culprits to elevated blood sugar and elevated insulin than diet and exercise. Please watch my full length video to learn what they are and, more importantly, what you can do to identify and remove them.

There is a better way to good health and it is my life’s mission to teach it to those who a ready and willing to learn!



When I first came to Dr. Beyer I was frustrated with fatigue, inability to lose weight, and struggling with a newly diagnosed Hashimoto’s (disease)… My hairdresser extoled this great find right here in Tinley Park and encouraged me to see Dr. Beyer. After my initial assessment I felt great. I felt I landed in the right place, that my issues were heard, and that they would be resolved… I kept my end goal in mind and was meticulous in following the program… I highly recommend it. I am astounded at how I feel!

When I came into Dr. Beyer I was very much overweight. I had very bad hormone imbalances and everything that went with it- bad skin, crazy periods, not feeling good, fatigue, depression. I was going to doctors looking for a cure for what was going on but I wasn’t getting any sort of resolution and things are spiraling out of control. All doctors wanted to do is keep slapping more and more medicine on me and none of it was working and I was feeling worse and worse. I just got to a really bad place and came across a video that Dr. Beyer had posted and I knew enough about it to know that what he was saying made sense! I signed up for the program, now I’m done with my program. I am down 50 lbs from when I started! More than that though I have much more energy, I feel fabulous, my lifestyle has completely changed! Now I’m a healthy individual!

I had suffered most of my life with many different female problems such as infertility, period irregularity, rapid weight gain and not being able to lose weight…I ended up seeing an endocrinologist and they thought I had thyroid problems and put on medicine…everything I was doing was not helping…then Dr. Beyer’s came into my life! There’s not enough words to say how good I feel now. I’ve lost 50 lbs! I’ve learned so much here! I finally got answers! It’s worked phenomenally!

I have been coming to see Dr. Beyer for the past 10 years. I don’t know what I would have done without him! I was in an accident and had been to so many different doctors- a neurologist, a neurosurgeon, I even went to (a well-known) headache clinic! I had been on all sorts of medications- Vicodin™ and all sorts of other & narcotics. Someone recommended Dr. Beyer to me. Since I have been seeing Dr. Beyer I don’t take narcotics anymore. I am 100% better! Not only do I come in once a month but my two children and my husband see Dr. Beyer also. He has helped them tremendously…Thank you Dr. Beyer!

In my early 30’s I started having pain… I was an athlete and a few years ago I had to stop playing soccer…I would lay around- my house was a mess. I came to (Dr.) Beyer…I am now playing soccer, I sleep through the night, I have energy, my house is clean… I go biking, rock climbing… I have my life back!
