The IDHC leads the development and coordination of holistic and cultural diabetic healing practices in Ontario. This includes the development of standards and methodologies that incorporate the body, mind and spirit of our clientele and their family, restoring balance so they can increase their understanding of the disease, make informed decisions and self-manage their lives.
