The Diabetes Revolution Podcast


Type 2 Diabetes sucks. Especially when it’s a struggle, and it’s running (and ruining) your life. Dr. Sarah Townley, The Type 2 Diabetes Coach, created this podcast to inspire and empower people with Type 2 Diabetes to heal their bodies by addressing the root cause. This means working WITH your body instead of fighting with it. It also means cultivating a mindset that solves quitting, self-sabotage, and overeating. Type 2 Diabetes can be controlled and even reversed with lifestyle alone. This podcast answers all the questions you didn’t get answered in the doctor’s office so that you can stop depending on other people to feel better. You can feel better right now.
