The course has 2 major sections on alternative and natural remedies. These cover acupuncture, ayerveda, homeopathy, reflexology, natural foods, massage, meditation and more.

There are 2 "physical" sections. One offers a detailed introduction to yoga and a demonstration class, the other gives you a workout specifically designed for diabetics.

The course finishes with a deliberately reflective summary section. This gives you the opportunity to think about what we have covered and how the ideas can work for you.

When you have finished the course you will have a more complete understanding of diabetes. Most importantly, you will have a whole new set of tools which you can use to manage your condition.
