Breakthrough Solutions for Reversing Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity On or Off a Budget If present trends continue, one in three children born in this century will likely develop diabetes in his or her lifetime. Obesity, equally, is on the rise, and the prevalence of both conditions is directly related to income and education. The poorest populations suffer disproportionately from diseases that can prevented and treated using lifestyle management, dietary changes, stress management and other inexpensive, mind-body solutions. Rather than focusing on nutritional supplements, Dr. Godby will explore a breadth of proven, practical tools and techniques that clinicians can apply to their current practice. Attendees will learn how to empower patients to take control of their health using practices like blood glucose monitoring, enjoying healthy food, specific exercise techniques, emotional health awareness, fat loss methods and more.

Thank you Dr. Godby and Janna for making me aware of this safe and effective option."
Dr. Godby and his staff are wonderful! They have addressed all my concerns in a wholistic manner.
After my consultations with Dr. Godby, I feel like a new person. No pain and I haven't even missed work during my periods! I have extreme energy and feel alive!
The office staff is very friendly and treats me like I matter to them. Dr. Godby is an excellent listener and treats me with respect and kindness. He really does treat the whole person."
But after following Dr. Godby's recommendations, which I follow to this day, I feel 100% better!
I highly recommend Dr. Godby and his staff! They are very knowledgeable and professional. Dr. Godby's grasp of the human body and how it works as a system is greatly effective is assisting patients, if the patient is willing to follow his recommendations. I believe everybody would benefit physically, emotionally, and mentally by following Dr. Godby's 2 week anti-inflammatory diet and doing a food allergy test for hidden allergies."
-S. Mercedez Calleras, Massachusetts (2010)
"Dr. Godby is such a compassionate, caring man - one that I feel really listens and takes the time and energy to truly bond with each patient."
Thank you SO MUCH, Dr. Godby.
Dr. Godby;
Good morning Dr. Godby,
Naturopathic doctor Dennis Godby has perfectly summarized the issue of the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) "normal" range, versus what he calls the "optimal" range, and explains how the "conventional reference ranges are designed not on preventing disease or identifying patients outside of optimal human function, but on helping to diagnose disease states only."
Dr. Godby asks: "Has your doctor told you, 'your blood test results are completely normal,' but instead of feeling relief, you felt worse, knowing that something was wrong, but the doctor was unable to find any answers? Don't miss Dr. Godby's article -
From the moment I met with Dr. Godby, we have been working together as a TEAM, quite successfully. He has spent a lot of time getting to know my health history, and to LISTEN to what I thought might explain my poor health. Dr. Godby is a physician who really cares about his patients and is willing to work with you and use natural medicine to bring you back to great health."
Dr. Godby's appointments are very thorough. He takes the time to really listen, ans saves significant time by having his evaluations done prior to appointments. Dr. Godby has always shown me how much he cares about me and my health concerns, but he also emphasizes how important it is for me and all his patients to be responsible for their health.
That doctor turned out to be Dr. Dennis Godby of the Diabetes Natural Path Center. Dr. Dennis Godby's attitude was refreshing to say the least. He believed in treating the whole person, not just what ailed them. Yes, he viewed Diabetes as a progressive disease, but not a disease that had to progress. This spoke volumes to me!
Being an intuitive person by nature, I found Dr. Dennis Godby to be both genuine and sincere. He took a special interest in my health and worked tirelessly to discover the root causes of many of the seemingly unrelated symptoms I was experiencing.
Our first meeting, unlike traditional appointments, lasted more than 2 hours. Dr. Dennis Godby took a detailed family history and medical background, asked a variety of in-depth questions designed to not only understand the symptoms I was experiencing, but to make connections between these symptoms and familial patterns. Dr. Dennis Godby took copious notes; an observation not lost on this teacher, clarified information, and repeatedly asked for my opinion and insight. Finally, he summarized what he had learned, read it back to me, and then proceeded to design a course of action and treatment tailored to my conditions and goals.
Although the primary focus of my visits was for the treatment and management of my Diabetes, Dr. Dennis Godby accurately diagnosed other underlying conditions that had been left untreated. For years, I had been trying, to no avail, to alert my primary care physician to the other puzzling and often debilitating symptoms I was experiencing. These doctors would half-heartedly listen, nod their heads and then comment "Your numbers look fine". They would disregard family history and then would remark "You're too young. All the while, I was suffering! This one-size fits all approach to patient care does not work. Unlike most doctors who practice conventional medicine, Dr. Godby saw me as a unique individual, with symptoms unique to me and my family history. His belief that what may work for one person may not work for another, has saved me countless time, agony, and money.
Together, Dr. Dennis Godby and I have combined some of the more traditional medical practices with alternative and naturopathic forms of treatment. We have created a balanced approach to my care; one that focuses on me, the individual and not the pharmaceutical companies.
Dr. Dennis Godby continues to work to this day to manage my Diabetes and correct the other conditions that have been brought to light. He has been my "hope" and has supported my own efforts to take control of my Diabetes, manage stress, and lead a fulfilling and productive life! I am a stronger person for having known him and have become my own advocate. I highly recommend Dr. Dennis Godby, ND!"
It was Dr. Godby who suggested that I have a certain blood test to see if I was actually a Type 1 diabetic, instead of a Type 2 diabetic as originally diagnosed by my primary care doctor. This blood test had never been performed by my primary care doctor to see if I was, in fact, a Type 2 diabetic. Sure enough, the test that Dr. Godby performed confirmed that I was a Type 1 diabetic and needed to take insulin.
After beginning an insulin regime, I am doing great now! My blood sugar levels are well under control. I often wonder, though, what kind of shape I would be in today if I had never been Dr. Godby's patient.
"When I first met with Dr. Godby in September 2007, I was expending an enormous effort to not-quite hold my health-- physical, emotional, mental--together. My sense of well-being had vastly improved over nearly four years of work with nutrition, herbs, chiropractic, and acupuncture; but I was still suffering from a constellation of chronic digestive issues, overwhelming stress, and emotional exhaustion.
Within a month of my intake with Dr. Godby, I was feeling dramatically better... less vulnerable, happier, more at ease and at liberty to enjoy myself despite ongoing stress. My health was clearly on the upswing despite that I was in the final stages of a traumatic relationship and in the midst of a job transition in a still-unfamiliar city.
Within two months of my initial visit, Dr. Godby had discharged me, having identified the roots of dis-ease and empowered me with the knowledge and nutritional support that I needed to heal.
Six months after my first visit with Dr. Godby, my life is transformed.
"When I first contacted Dr. Godby about 8 months ago, I was at an all-time low.
That same week, I found Dr Godby and my life completel changed!
I live about an hour from Dr. Godby's office. For my convenience, I had all appointments with Dr Godby by phone. Our phone appointments were more thorough than any appointment I had had at a conventional doctor's office. During our first conversation, Dr Godby showed so much compassion for what I had been going through and seemed to truly care about me. One of the things he said to me was, "I'm sorry that this has happened to you, but I can help you feel better. That meant so much to me after years of being discounted by doctors. He also showed interest in how my health was affecting my personal life. None of my other doctors even asked about my personal life.
Dr. Godby ordered lab tests that he mailed to me and I was able to conduct in the privacy and convenience of my home. The tests showed that I have multiple, hidden and delayed food allergies and the beginning stages of leaky gut syndrome, adrenal fatigue and a hormonal imbalance. Through the use of supplements and by changing my diet, I am completely a new person! I am full of energy; my digestive system is actually working proper
