Concern About Diabetes

Struggling with Blood Sugar, Insulin Resistance or Weight-Related Issues?

The U.S. Center for Disease Control now estimates that about half the U.S. population is now pre-diabetic, insulin resistant, obese or actually diabetic.

Why are so many Americans becoming Type 2 Diabetics? What is causing this?

And why is that most people fail when trying to address health problems relating to these conditions?

Functional Imbalances May Be the Problem

There are a number of reasons for the health crisis we’re facing, but for many it has to do with imbalances in how our bodies are functioning.

Among other chronic illnesses, functional imbalances can cause unhealthy fat-like substances to build up in your blood or tissue (lipids), insulin resistance and elevated blood sugar leading to diabetes.

Diabetes Is a “Silent Killer”

Diabetes is often referred to as the “Silent Killer” because, if you’re pre-diabetic or even have full onset diabetes, you can be feeling well and not have any symptoms and still be a victim of this challenging disease.

But There Is Good News

First, we can now quickly help you evaluate your overall functional health, without expensive and time-consuming functional lab testing.

And, second, if you’re having functional health problems, we have a proven program to help you restore healthy balance so your body can heal naturally.

The program is called “TRANSFORMATIONS®-360.” The easy first step involves a special symptoms questionnaire.

Begin by Learning Your WICO® Score

The first thing to do is complete our online WICO® Questionnaire to obtain your WICO® Score.

WICO® is like your FICO credit rating, but instead WICO® rates how well your body is functioning. This may provide insight as to why you are having blood sugar, insulin or diabetes issues.

15-functional-health-conditions_2

Looking at 15 functional health conditions, your overall Functional Health will be scored on a scale of 500 to 800, based on how many conditions are rated as mild, moderate or severe. A specially trained PMA licensed healthcare practitioner will help you evaluate your score and answer whatever questions you have.

We are encouraging all PMA subscribers who are struggling with blood sugar or insulin issues to complete the online WICO® Questionnaire.

Discount Lab Tests

Saving You Money

As a subscriber to our growing Health Network, the Pastoral Medical Association has made special arrangements to provide you access through your PMA practitioner to a wide variety of laboratory tests at deeply discounted prices, right in your own hometown. These are the same tests ordered by licensed physicians and other secular healthcare providers.

Preventing Illness

One of the best ways to prevent disease is to make sure you and your family members have comprehensive laboratory profiles completed annually. Getting tested puts your health in your hands.

Prevention and early detection of problems are a vital part of your health maintenance program! Importantly, a simple blood test could help save your life.

Health Recovery

Comprehensive laboratory testing is also a valuable tool in determining the root cause of symptoms of chronic illness and regaining your health.

What Testing Involves

When you have your blood tested, medical laboratory scientists and trained technicians perform complex chemical, biological, hematological, immunologic, microscopic and bacteriological tests, requiring significant analytical and independent judgment. They then analyze your test results and report them in writing. In recent years, there has been a marked growth in genetic and genomic testing that identifies the unique genetic profile of individuals and their chronic health conditions.

Today, more than 7 billion clinical lab tests are performed in the U.S. each year, providing valuable data for a relatively small cost.

How Test Results Are Used

Conventional medical physicians use a variety of laboratory tests, as well as genetic profiles, to confirm their diagnosis of disease and make treatment decisions, including what pharmaceutical drugs they may choose to prescribe to their patients.

In contrast, because Pastoral Science & Medicine is not concerned with diagnosing or treating or curing specific illness or disease, your PMA provider will review your test results with you to identify areas in which your body may have nutritional deficiencies and/or not be functioning at optimal level.

The goal is to discover what is causing you to feel poorly, and to restore balance through completely natural means to promote the ability of your body to resist disease and to repair and heal on its own.

How to Order Tests

You can now order tests yourself directly or your PMA practitioner will assist you in selecting the right tests and evaluating test results from the perspective of correcting imbalances and/or improving function.  Of course, to assure you get the most benefit from your test results, we recommend that you always seek professional consultation.

IT’S AS EASY AS 1-2-3

  1. Order by Phone or Online. Click here to view online the test(s) you are interested in and then call 800-908-0000 to place your order directly by phone. BE SURE to give the customer service representative this special PMA code: R-PMAI. Or you can simply register online and use the Direct Labs shopping cart, again using the special PMA code when paying for your order.
  2. Go to a Local Lab. Visit a local Quest Diagnostics lab convenient to your home or work to provide blood or other needed samples for testing. Click here to find a local clinic.
  3. Receive Your Test Results. Your test results will be sent to you by email, usually within 24-48 hours.

It’s really that simple and easy, plus you’ll save substantially on whatever tests you buy!

Natural Permanent Weight Loss

Losing Fat, Not Muscle, is the Key

But crash or starvation diets are useless and especially harmful since about 50 percent of the weight you lose is lean muscle.

Your muscles produce enzymes that burn fat. So it follows that when you have less muscle, you are producing fewer enzymes and you are reducing your “calorie burning engine”. In addition, when you are hungry for a long period of time, your body’s defenses against “starvation” begin to kick in.

In other words, in order to protect yourself from wasting away, your body will naturally slow down the metabolism in response to having less food, thus making it even more difficult to burn calories and shed body fat.

Starvation Diets are Not the Answer

In contrast, to be effective, a weight loss system must allow you to:

  • Eat Real Food NOT Meal Replacements, Shakes & Bars
  • Feel GREAT with NO Hunger & NO Cravings
  • Have GREAT Energy, Sleep & Mental State
  • Lose INCHES as You Lose FAT Not Muscle Mass
  • Learn Correct Food Habits to Avoid Unhealthy Ones
  • Correct Functional Imbalances to Maintain Success

Only TRANSFORMATIONS®-360 addresses the 5 critical weight-loss issues

TRANSFORMATIONS®-360 with its unique WICO® Score Wellness Range assessment is a proven and time-test program for losing weight naturally, safely and effectively, while correcting functional imbalances you may have.

Offered only by specially trained TRANSFORMATIONS®-360 clinicians, the program is designed to help you:

  • Lose Abdominal Fat
  • Learn Correct Food Habits
  • Lose Fat NOT Muscle Mass
  • Correct Unhealthy Imbalances
  • Feel GREAT – Achieve Goals

Begin by learning your WICO® Score

The first thing to do is complete our online WICO® Questionnaire to obtain your WICO® Score.

WICO® is like your FICO credit rating, but instead WICO® rates how well your body is functioning, and why you can’t lose weight or keep it off.

Benefits of Joining PMA’s Health Network

Lifelong Health and Well-Being

PMA serves as a gathering place where individuals and their families can take advantage of health-supporting resources and connect with spiritually oriented health, wellness and counseling professionals who share our passion for ending chronic illness and promoting lifelong health and well-being through natural safer means.

We’re Continually Working for You

  • Promoting Health & Well-Being.The PMA serves individuals and families who are seeking natural solutions for regaining their health and maintaining vital health and well-being in all aspects of their lives.
  • Supporting Healthcare Practitioners. To these ends, as a private ecclesiastical healthcare organization, the PMA attracts qualified healthcare practitioners offering natural solutions for restoring optimal health. We review practitioner education and background and provide ecclesiastical licenses to practice Pastoral Science and Medicine.
  • Providing Resources. We also research and provide leading-edge natural and science-based clinical protocols, and health-related products and programs that align with our mission; and
  • Building Community. The PMA then brings these health professionals and resources to you through this online portal for everyone’s benefit.

Why We Do It

  • Because We Care. Too many families today are being unnecessarily devastated by chronic illness. We are committed to reversing this trend, for the benefit of our own families and for yours.
  • Because the Need Exists. Modern medicine is simply not equipped to end the epidemic of chronic illness. It is abundantly clear that conventional allopathic medicine is not the answer to the problem. If anything, widespread use of prescription drugs is making things worse. Despite the hundreds of billions of dollars Americans spend on medications every year, chronic illness and autoimmune disease are on the rise.
  • Because We Have What It Takes. The solution lies in creating a grass-roots movement with a single-pointed focus and goal of achieving widespread health and well-being by promoting smart lifestyle choices and use of natural means for restoring and sustaining vibrant health.

Through collaborative efforts, the PMA is bringing together devoted healthcare professionals with the best knowledge, skills, resources, and tools to provide educational and clinical programs that address the root causes of chronic illness.

pma-affiliateWe also strive to affiliate with independent companies offering proven clinical protocols and state-of-the-art technology to address chronic illness, and to help PMA practitioners serve more clients and succeed in their practices. Learn about PMA Affiliates.

Together, we’re empowering individuals, families, and communities to take responsibility for regaining their health and to adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors that foster vitality and enjoyment of long, active and productive lives.
