Dr Christensen has developed the perfect guidebook to help people navigate and understand the implications of Type 2 Diabetes from the Ayurvedic perspective with 48 delicious recipes. The Ayurveda Solution for Type 2 Diabetes: A Clinically Proven Program to Balance Blood Sugar in 12 Weeks will be the first book to:

Trace the roots of Type 2 Diabetes through the Ayurvedic perspective Bring to life natural therapies that originated in Ayurveda, but are clinically proven and used in Western medicine  Provide recent clinical research to support the most effective use of the diet, lifestyle, and herbal therapies Allow readers to discover their true nature and apply a constitution-specific program Include easy-to-follow bullet-point instructions Provide a 12-week program to balance blood sugar, including an 8-week elimination diet, a one-week detox, and a 3-week reintroduction of foods Incorporate an exercise journal, relaxation journal, food and blood-sugar journal to increase compliance Include delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes for each constitution

Modern medicine emphasizes the structure of the body; Ayurveda, on the other hand, focuses on the energies behind that structure--the doshas. Each chapter is full of extraordinary facts, clinical research, useful tips, and instructions for therapeutic self-application. Each therapy includes a brief yet compelling overview of how Ayurveda made these astonishing discoveries thousands of years ago, which are now clinically proven and implemented in Western medicine.

Following the 12-step program, which features an 8-week elimination diet, herbal therapies, dietary guidelines, lifestyle adjustments and fabulous recipes by award-winning culinary herbalist Pat Crocker, the reader will be on the road to getting her blood sugar under control and feeling better than she has in months or even years – knowing she is likely to be extending her life. Whether the reader is an Ayurveda novice or a serious student, the book – filled with practical advice, solid science and compassion – will be a valuable guide.

Ayurveda can fully thrive in today's world, as its therapeutic approaches are proven through randomized controlled studies and adapted to a modern lifestyle. Ayurveda is supported through evidence-based scientific methods for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes and has shown to get highly significant results. It is essential to integrate Ayurveda and modern medicine in treatment of Type 2 Diabetes, and The Ayurveda Solution for Type 2 Diabetes can help.

"Jackie changed my life for the better! I started seeing her for my diabetes. She created a safe environment for sharing and learning and created a health plan unique to me.

"Ayurvedic doctor Jackie Christensen is my favorite doctor. Her warm, confident, and soothing personality always puts me at ease no matter what health crisis I'm in.

"Jackie Christensen is fantastic — the perfect combination of intelligent and pragmatic. Jackie was clear, concise and knowledgeable.

It has been only a couple weeks, but I already have noticed substantial change in my overall energy and health. I feel so much better and was/am completely amazed by how profound the results were. Seriously, I was starting to feel as if I had tried it all. Wish I had been in contact with Jackie first! Could sing her praise all day- simply, she is fantastic." — Megan Nielson, Santa Cruz, CA

"Jackie Christensen worked with me for six months and helped me lose the weight I had been trying to get off my hips and thighs for years. She put together a meal plan that worked for my specific body type and ayurvedic constitution. It included grinding teas and three cooked meals a day. I was not starving all the time and my energy increased, and I finally got rid of that afternoon slump. I also incorporated regular walks into my routine and I really enjoyed the exercise and fresh air. She also taught me stress-reduction therapies. I have a stressful job and three kids, so as a single mom I needed to relax and, when I did, I really noticed the weight come off. As a result, my blood pressure and blood glucose went down as well and I feel better now than I did when I was in my 30s." — Elizabeth Hanson Santa Cruz, CA

“I signed up for three consultations with Jackie and I was not really sure what to expect because it was my first visit with an ayurvedic doctor. But she was very knowledgeable and explained to me what was going on in my sensitive body in a way that I could really understand the problem and how to resolve it. A few small changes in my diet and lifestyle really went a long way. I highly recommend Jackie to anyone who needs to detox.” — Dana Moore, Santa Cruz, CA
