We can help…
You Don’t Have to Suffer Anymore!
Have you accepted the fact that there is nothing that can be done about your diabetes symptoms?
Are you tired of searching for so-called “solutions” that never really seem to help?
Is there anything more annoying and life-disrupting than constant reminders of your diabetes flaring up? Are you always tired, in pain, and struggling just to get through the day?
Had enough of the constant aching and throbbing pain, burning and tingling, prickling pain, the pill popping, and the having to say “no” to doing the things you love?
We get it.
We are so glad that you found us!
Patients come to us when they are frustrated with the options their doctors have given them and they are searching for something better. By the time people find us they think that they have tried “everything” to manage their diabetes symptoms.
Just wait until you see what we can offer.
We are here to give you hope. There is consistent evidence that Physiologic Insulin Resensitization (PIR) can reverse the diabetes-associated complications of neuropathy, diabetic ulcers, nephropathy, and retinopathy, and it lowers HbA1c.
Many of our treatments may be covered by Medicare & Major Insurance carriers, so there may be little to no out-of-pocket cost for you.
It’s time to stop covering up your symptoms and get to the root cause.
We are confident that we can help reduce your diabetes symptoms, burning and scorching pain, and in some instances completely eliminate it.
It’s what we do.

Benefits of Physiologic Insulin Resensitization (PIR)
The Root Cause of Diabetic Complications
Diabetes is a growing global problem that is currently on the rise. Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a chronic condition that results from aberrant B-cell function coupled with progressive insulin resistance. The majority of Type 2 diabetic patients develop diabetic neuropathy, which can lead to devastating complications (i.e., infection, ulceration, osteomyelitis, & amputation). The proinflammatory state of diabetes, along with prolonged hyperglycemia, damages peripheral nerves (most common in the lower extremities).
Additionally, compromised wound healing exacerbates the risk when skin breakdown occurs in the diabetic population. To overcome these risks for T2D, physiologic insulin resensitization (PIR) has been used as a novel protocol to treat patients with severe neuropathy symptoms. In our case study, we present two patients who initially experienced a loss of sensation in their extremities and decreased wound healing. Using PIR treatment, we demonstrate that both patients experienced neuropathy reversal and improved wound healing.
Diabetes and the associated complications affect over 34 million Americans, and an additional 88 million Americans are prediabetic. In 2019, diabetes caused $476 billion in health care expenditures, which represented 10% of the total medical costs for adults in America. Traditional treatment has primarily focused on changes in lifestyle and the management of symptoms; neither approach addresses the root cause of diabetes, metabolic failure.
Simple In-Office Treatment 1 X per week
A patient’s unique care plan typically includes an “Induction Phase” of weekly infusions, which is then reduced in frequency as improvements are realized for approximately 90 days.
Next, the “Maintenance Phase” finds the balance between developing an optimized metabolism and maximizing the time between treatments. Visits typically start with three hours, and patients are free to move around during the process (read, work, watch TV, etc.). As patients improve, the time between visits is extended while visit duration is reduced. A two to three-hour visit about every four to six weeks is common.
We make it an easy and relaxing experience.

Published Articles and Studies about Physiologic Insulin Resensitization (PIR)
There are a number of studies on the benefits of Physiologic Insulin Resensitization that highlight the efficacy of the treatment. The development of physiologic insulin resensitization (PIR) uses precision dosing patterns of insulin that is consistent with normal hormone secretion and closely resembles the body’s natural signaling pathway.
As the patient’s insulin resistance improves, healthcare providers can titrate other medications to optimize treatment regimens further. PIR permits the ability to lower the dosing of subcutaneous insulin and other diabetic medications.
- Reduce insulin resistance.
- Increase the amount of blood sugar entering the cell.
- Increases the conversion of sugar into energy.
