Empowering diabetics

On Wednesday 21st November, The Health Alliance hosted an empowerment class called Successful Living with Diabetes. In this class, there was an informative talk from Dr Jagathpal about diabetes and how to combat it, as well as a talk by The Health Alliance’s Nutrition Coach about how nutrition can help you combat the condition and what you should and shouldn’t be eating (contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to eat “special” food if you are diabetic). The Health Alliance’s trainer also spoke to the audience about exercising with diabetes and the benefits thereof.

The Health Alliance launched their “Successful Living with Diabetes” Programme through this empowerment class. They have recently joined forces with Dr Jagathpal to put together this programme where they show diabetics that living with the condition doesn’t have to be troublesome. They offer an easy to follow programme revolving around exercise, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.

The programme runs for 12 weeks and includes a one hour group personal training session three times a week, 6 consultations with a nutrition coach and 6 consultations with Dr Jagathpal. Within this 12 week programme, you can be assured that you will receive the most personalised guidance and beneficial treatment available.

The programme costs R2500 per month, find out more by emailing info @ (without the spaces, of course!) The Health Alliance is based in Berea, Durban.
