  • Christina Elberling has Type I diabetes, and she wants to help others with diabetes to learn what she has discovered.
    “There are life changes you can make that can lead to better health,” Elberling said, adding some of the things she is offering are different ideas than one might get through traditional methods.
    Elberling is a certified holistic health coach, having received training through the Institute for Integrative Nutri-tion, and she is certified with the American Associ-ation of Drugless Practitioners.
    Elberling, who moved to Redwood Falls with her family this past August, said she has been researching non-traditional methods to treat diabetes for some time, and now she is ready to provide what she has learned with others.
    “I have had diabetes for 30 years, and I have learned how to control it and use as little insulin as possible,” she said, adding what she does also helps prevent the highs and lows one can typically experience with diabetes.
    Although diabetes is typically passed through genetics, Elberling said she has gone back five generations in her family and has not found anyone who had been diagnosed with it.
    She surmises a sledding accident that happened to her as a child may have triggered something that led to the diabetes discovery.
    Although Elberling has Type 1 diabetes, she is focusing most of what she is offering to those with Type 2 diabetes, and she is confident, and believes research backs the belief that Type 2 diabetes can be reversed with proper care.
    Elberling is offering a program known as The Diabetes Free Zone®, which is a new 16-week program that uses natural methods to reverse Type 2 diabetes.
    “I want to meet a widespread need for awareness and hope through a structured system that not only educates people but also helps then regain control of their blood sugar and ultimately their health,” she said.
    When Elberling was first diagnosed with diabetes, there was little being offered for juveniles, and she said advances have helped to better treat younger people with the disease.
    Elberling said she wants to provide that opportunity for people to know they can feel good two days in a row, and she said what she offers can help.
    Success is about taking the disease head on one day and one choice at a time.
    Elberling said those who might be interested in working with her may contact her by visiting her Web site at www.cehealthcoaching.com.
    Elberling said she is looking for a space to use for her program, but for now is willing to travel to meet people or to uses technology, including Skype to work with those who are part of the program.
