Addressing The Problem's Source

That’s when the potentially lethal cycle starts – Your body gets stressed. Stress causes the adrenal glands to cortisol. Cortisol reduces the insulin sensitivity of cells. More sugar is needed – and your blood sugar level just keeps escalating, possibly leading to other related problems such as loss of eyesight, decreased circulation potentially leading to amputation of limbs, and others.

Advanced Edge can help! We will work with you to create a program that can literally change your life – diet keyed to when and what you should eat, exercise programming and more. There is no “one-size-fits-all” magic “plug-in.”BUT we will educate you on diet, exercise, stress relief and other elements to help control high blood sugar.


If you have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or actually have diabetes, you know that there is no “magic bullet” that will heal the problem.

Typically, diabetes is diagnosed through blood tests that show a high A1C level. When a heightened level has been found, the number one goal is to control the amount of blood sugar in your body, which will be determined by continued testing for A1C.

The big problem in dealing with diabetes is the issue of insulin resistance. Once the pancreas is stressed by having to continue to produce high levels of insulin, the problem tends to become compounded by the adrenalin glands producing cortisol.

I am very impressed with everything I have learned from Dr. Hensel. His insights on what I need to do to make certain muscles work properly when exercising have been very beneficial.

I just wanted to update my review, Dr. Jasmine and Dr. Erik of course are still simply awesome at what they do! They truly care for your health, and you are going to be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive chiropractic and functional medicine & wellness practice in town. Not only have they been doing a great job with helping me recover from many old sports injuries / surgeries, but their detox / clean eating plan paved the way for over 60 lbs of weight loss! Thanks guys - I recommend you to everyone!

Anyone that frequents chiropractors knows that only a few have the ability to really get it done right. Fortunately, I have only needed adjustments a few times in Columbus and each time, I wasn't thrilled so I kept looking. Optimistically, I contacted Active Edge based solely on rave reviews online. Amy (scheduler) accommodated me on short notice. Dr Erik took his time with diagnostic questions and movement exercises, then used unique techniques (my ab muscles?) to put everything back into place. Absolutely a flawless visit. My search stops here.

Everyone is so friendly. Amy was very nice and welcoming when I walked in, she offered me coffee and tea and gave me a tour of the facility which I really appreciated her taking the time to do that. Dr Ryan Cahall spent a lot of time with me and I didn't feel the slightest bit rushed. I could tell he genuinely cared and wanted to help me with my very painful neck strain. I will be going back for follow up. Seems like a really great place- would definitely recommend to friends!
