That -unless they dramatically change their lifestyle, show that Americans are a nation of people destined to succumb in mass to this disease and its fatal consequences:
- About 29 million Americans are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, which affects 90 to 95 percent of the diabetic population.
- About 86 million Americans are pre-diabetic.
- 1 in 250 Americans younger than age 20 are affected by Type 1 Diabetes – also called “juvenile onset diabetes” – relatively uncommon. It has no known cure.
- 50 percent of the people with type 2 diabetes are NOT aware they have diabetes.
- 90 percent of the people who have a condition known as pre-diabetes aren’t aware of it either.
- It is estimated that diabetes has increased more than 700 percent in the last 50 years!
- Two-thirds of the American population is overweight and 80 percent of them is metabolically ill. Only 20 percent of them is metabolically healthy.
- 50 percent of Americans have some form of insulin resistance.
Before talking about how it can be cured naturally we have to understand well what diabetes is and what it does to the body.
As Dr. Mercola, a naturopathic doctor, board-certified in family medicine, explains it “Diabetes is a disorder of insulin and leptin signaling that evolves over a long period of time, moving first into a prediabetes state, and then to full-blown diabetes”.
Diabetes is a disease rooted in insulin resistance and a malfunction of leptin signaling, caused by chronically elevated insulin and leptin levels.
With Diabetes liver and pancreas do not work as they should and in doing so the body is incapable of producing and/or handling properly Insulin.
What Is Insulin
Insulin is a hormone naturally produced by the body, in the Pancreas. The purpose of your pancreas is to produce the hormone insulin and secrete it into your bloodstream, thereby regulating your glucose at the levels your body needs to live.
And insulin has the function to store excess nutrients, to act as a source of energy for your cells help you body use the Glucose (sugar) that is generated by the carbohydrates in the foods you eat. Energy either to be used immediately or to be stored for future use.
The task is accomplished by properly storing the extra energy generated by glucose for present and future consumption. When this mechanism works properly the effect is the lowering of your blood sugar. When your body notices that sugar is elevated, insulin will be released to take that sugar and store it as Glycogen.
But your body stores very little glycogen at any one time to store it as saturated fat, and the body makes it into saturated fat quite readily.
So a high complex-carbohydrate, low-saturated-fat diet is nothing but a high-glucose diet, or a high-sugar diet and your body is just going to store it as saturated fat quite readily.
Insulin works strictly with Leptin, another powerful hormone, discovered in 1994 by Jeffrey M. Friedman and Douglas.
Leptin is produced in your fat cells and its primary job is to regulate your appetite and body weight by telling your brain when to eat and how much to eat and it also tells your brain what to do with the energy it has stored. Leptin is responsible for telling the liver what to do with the glucose that insulin has stored there.
In other words, leptin is the way that your fat stores speak to your brain to let your brain know how much energy is available and what to do with it. If leptin signaling is working properly its level will surge when your fat storage is full signaling your brain to stop feeling hungry, to stop eating, to stop storing fat and to start burning some extra fat off.
People can become leptin resistant by the same mechanism that they become insulin-resistant:
- continuous overexposure to high levels of the hormone,
- eating a diet that is high in sugar (particularly fructose), grains, and processed foods
and as the sugar gets metabolized in your fat cells, the fat releases surges in leptin and over time, your body, exposed to too much leptin, becomes resistant, just as your body can become resistant to insulin. which causes you to rapidly gain weight and you become obese, and obesity in turn increases your resistance to leptin and so on and on without ending and the situation getting worse leading to full blown type 2 diabetes.
Because insulin and leptin are strictly linked, the researches indicates that just taking insulin, focusing exclusively on the symptom of elevated blood sugar, without regard for the function of the hormone leptin, will cause more problems for type 2 diabetes patients, because it will worsen their leptin/insulin resistance over time.
That is the problem with most available type 2 diabetes treatment drugs, that they either raise insulin or lower blood sugar.
As we have already seen, the problem is that diabetes is NOT really a disease of blood sugar, rather a metabolic problem of the malfunctioning of the hormones insulin and leptin. For this reason focusing on the symptom of elevated blood sugar as it is done with conventional treatments is quite useless.
When this insulin/leptin mechanism fails, for various reasons, diabetes disease results. Insulin fails to open your cells, to allow the glucose to enter — and allow you to use the glucose for energy. So, the sugar stays and builds up in the blood and the body’s cells will starve from the lack of glucose.
The best way to reestablish proper leptin/insulin signalling and diabetes cure, is through your diet and lifestyle changes which will work better than any drug.
Conventional diabetes treatment has failed over the last 50 years partly because of its seriously flawed dietary principles. Conventional diabetes treatment has never cured anyone from type 2 diabetes, in fact patients take medication for the entire life.
Nearly 100 percent of type 2 diabetics can be successfully cured without drugs. You can start your way to recovery with diet and exercise alone.
Glucose is the primary source of energy of the body. When you intake carbohydrates (sugars, grains, starchy vegetables, fruits and dairy products) glucose is formed in your body, in the liver, and released into the blood stream and the Pancreas is supposed to generate Insulin just to regulate the concentration of this Glucose.
It all starts from here. Insulin resistance is the basis of all of the chronic diseases of aging, because the disease itself is actually aging. It is believed that the major contributors to insulin resistance are excess weight and physical inactivity.
With insulin resistance, muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond properly to insulin and thus cannot absorb glucose from the bloodstream. As a result, the body needs higher levels of insulin to help glucose enter cells. Insulin resistance allows glucose in your body to increase and causes a host of complications.
Insulin resistance is clearly associated with weight gain but it is insulin that drives the weight gain not the weight gain that drives insulin resistance.
Besides promoting diabetes, insulin resistance increases the risk of cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson, vascular diseases and bladder and sexual disfunctions (ED and Impotence)
Unfortunately you may have this condition for ceseveral years without knowing because Insulin resistance is without symptoms.
Risk Factors Of The Condition
The condition is identified in people just by the presence of the following risk factors:
- bulging belly (a waist measurement of 40 inches or more for men and 35 inches or more for women),
- being over 45 of age,
- Severe form of insulin resistance are revealed by dark patches of skin, usually on the back of the neck, on elbows, knees, knuckles, and armpits.
Also known as impaired glucose tolerance, it is an earlier state of progressing insulin resistance.
With pre-diabetes, which is becoming more common in the western world, blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes.
When Are You Pre-diabetic?
Pre diabetic condition is characterised by having a fasting plasma blood glucose in the 100-125 mg/dl range. Also defined as “having impaired fasting glucose”.
Pre-diabetes usually occurs in people who already have insulin resistance and it sets the stage for the development of type 2 diabetes by placing a high demand on the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas which can no longer produce enough insulin to overcome insulin resistance. This causes blood glucose levels to rise above the normal range.
Over time, high blood glucose damages nerves and blood vessels, leading to other complications such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, and lower-limb amputations.
Pre-diabetics usually develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years, unless they change their lifestyle. Lifestyle changes include losing weight, and increase the level of physical activity.
But it is a very easy disease to turn around. Just swapping processed foods for whole organic foods lower combined with a few minutes of daily exercise will quickly put you on the road to reversing this condition.
Types Of Diabetes
Type 1 Diabetes.
Is a chronic health condition characterized by elevated levels of glucose in your blood. Also known as “Diabetes Mellitus”, also called “insulin-dependent” diabetes. Also called “Juvenile Diabetes”, because it hits prevalently young persons (develops before the age of 20). but it can develop at any age. It is the most severe type of diabetes.
In type 1 diabetes, your own immune system ravages the insulin-producing cells of your pancreas. The result is a loss of the hormone insulin. Type 1 diabetics need to be supplemented with insulin for the rest of their lives as failure to do so will rapidly result in death.
At the current time, other than a pancreas transplant there is no known cure for type 1 diabetes.
In type 1 diabetes, the autoimmune system attacks part of its own pancreas (we not sure why) because mistakenly it sees the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas as foreign bodies, and destroys them therefore the Pancreas cannot produce enough Insulin to regulates the blood sugar level.
Type 1 diabetics need insulin supplements for the rest of their lives because failure to do so would rapidly lead to death.
It is now believed that type 1 diabetes it is an inherited disease. BUT it occurs ONLY in combination with certain ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURES like:
- consumption of cow’s milk,
- intake of MSG (monosodium glutamate,
- contact with certain viruses
- Inoculation of certain vaccines. Thus far the worst vaccines have been for Tetanus, Hepatitis B, MMR, and DPT.
The most important vitamin to intake to relieve symptoms of Type-1 Diabetes is Vit D3, which is missing in all Diabetics and all people affected by autoimmune disease.
Type 2 Diabetes.
Unlike people with type 1 Diabetes, in people with type 2 Diabetes , the pancreas can still produce insulin but not enough therefore the body tries and compensate for the low supply of insulin forcing itself to produce more of it. The excess of insult causes the cells receptors to close becoming resistant to insulin (a process is called insulin resistance), and the excess unused insulin builds up in the arteries, sticking to their walls and causing their obstruction.
On the other side, in the pancreas, the harder the insulin-producing cells have to work, the sooner they become exhausted and stop making insulin altogether.
This impaired response of the cells to Insulin is linked to long-term inflammation in the body caused by certain bacteria. Diabetics typically suffer of a overgrowth of bad bacteria in their colons, (a disease called DYSBIOSIS) and should take Probiotics (good bacteria) everyday with each meal.
Consequently -for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, the result is excessive levels of sugars in the blood.
The liver gets into this picture because it is the organ which transforms the carbohydrates you intake into Glucose.
What Are The Symptoms Of Diabetes?
These classic symptoms can be noticed when Diabetes is installed in the body are:
- Increased thirst
- Extreme hunger (even after eating)
- Frequent need to urinate
- Frequent skin, urinary, and vaginal infections
- Blurred vision
- Tingling or pain in the hands, feet or legs
- Slow healing of wounds
- Increased fatigue
- Unusual gain weight or loss
Risk Factors for Type 2 Diabetes
I you have one or more of the following risk factors, you should be checked for diabetes.
- Age 45 or older
- Overweight or obese
- Family history of diabetes
- Physical inactivity
- Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease
- Fasting triglycerides over 250 mg/dL
- HDL-C levels under 35 mg/dL
- Obstructive sleep apnea and chronic sleep deprivation
- Member of high-risk population (African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native, or Asian American)
Because Diabetes affects our blood vessels, it can affect every organ of the body: heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves. So Diabetes becomes a Multiplier of Health Risks. In fact, it triggers rampant atherosclerosis, hypertension and heart failure.
Compared to people without diabetes, diabetic are:
- Four times more likely to have a heart attack.
- Twice as likely to have a stroke.
- Five times more likely to suffer erectile dysfunctions . FOR YOU MEN, DO YOU SUFFER FOR ERECTILE PROBLEMS? The solution of your problems is likely to be in a Natural Health Cure for Diabetes or for Heart Disease, not in aphrodisiacs.
The majority (almost 100 percent, really) of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes cases can be cured and/or prevented by following a proper diet with proper nutritional supplements and change of lifestyle.
Against Diabetes we need Natural Health Cures because the available medicines only make the disease a chronic condition and cause further health problems.
Diabetes has a high incidence of complications, including:
- Dental disease,
- Heart attacks
- Amputated limbs
- Kidney failure
- Brain injury
- Peripheral neuropathy and
- High mortality rate.
Type 2 Diabetes Damages Brain in Two Years
As you know, in type 2 diabetes, the body doesn’t use insulin efficiently and enough of it to control blood sugar levels. Insulin is a hormone crucial for metabolizing carbohydrates in foods..
A small recent Harvard study published online July 8 in the journal Neurology suggest that people with type 2 diabetes may develop problems with blood flow in the brain in as little as two years, the which will lower their thinking and memory skills.
The study was funded by the U.S. National Institute on Aging, the American Diabetes Association, the Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center and the U.S. National Center for Research Resources.
Dr. Vera Novak, an associate professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School in Boston, and the author of the study, said that the major finding of this study was that the acceleration of the cognitive decline is linked to impaired blood flow regulation in the brain.
The problem found was with dilation of the blood vessels. Because the brain needs an adequate amounts of blood, blood flow to it is crucial for thinking skills and other activities.
The researchers found that the higher blood sugar levels the worsens the problem with blood vessel dilation.
In the study, 40 people were evaluated of average age 66. Nineteen of the study volunteers had type 2 diabetes, and 21 didn’t have the blood sugar disease. The researchers tested their volunteers at the start of the study, and two years later. They test involved also MRI scans to look at blood flow in their brains, and blood tests to measure their average blood sugar levels and inflammation.
The research team found that the higher the inflammation levels, the worse the blood flow regulation, even for people who had good control of their diabetes.
At the end of the study, those with type 2 diabetes had less ability to regulate blood flow to the brain and scored lower on the thinking and memory tests. Blood flow regulation decreased 65 percent in the people with type 2 diabetes.
The Alzheimer’s Connection.
Called “Type 3 Diabetes”, or ‘Brain Diabetes,’ may Be Responsible for Alzheimer’s Disease and Glaucoma
New research show there’s a link between your diet and your risk of both Alzheimer’s disease in the same way that type 2 diabetes is caused. Alzheimer’s disease was called “type 3 diabetes” when a few years ago it was discovered that, besides pancreas, your brain also produces insulin which is necessary for the survival of your brain cells.
Studies have discovered that most people with lower levels of insulin (insulin resistance of the brain) in their brain have Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers have now discovered that your brain does not require glucose, and it is the constant burning by the brain of glucose that is primarily to blame for Alzheimer’s and other brain disorders.
It’s becoming increasingly accepted that the same process that leads to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes also happens for your brain. When you overload on sugar and grains, your brain becomes overwhelmed by the high levels of glucose and insulin that hinders its insulin signaling, thus leading to in your thinking and memory impairments eventually leading to permanent brain damage.
Causes Of Diabetes And All Related Diseases.
Sugar is one of the most damaging substances that you can ingest. Sugar creates an intense addiction that is difficult to defeat, an addiction that is increasing among all, adults and children alike.
According to the Euromonitor study, the average American consumes about 32 teaspoons of sugar per day.
Read the study here from the Washington Post page HERE:
According to Dr. Robert Lustig, a professor of Clinical Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology in the University of California and a pioneer in decoding sugar metabolism, our body can safely metabolize only six teaspoons of added sugar per day. So the excess sugar in our diets becomes metabolized into body fat – leading to all the debilitating chronic metabolic diseases.
What makes the situation worse is that people are consuming sugar in the form of fructose or high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), a highly processed form of sugar cheaper and sweeter than regular white table sugar. Because this allows for money saving in the long run, most food and beverage manufacturers use it for all their processed products, foods and drinks (fruit juices, cereals, cakes, pies, pastries, ice cream, preserves, canned/dried foods, jellies and jams, condiments, salad dressings and sauces, liqueurs raisin breads, sugar-free syrups, granola with raisins, Agave syrup.)
Be careful, do not buy fat free products either: when manufacturers remove fat from foods, they replace it with sugar. According to SugarScience.org, 74 percent of processed foods contain added sugar under more than 60 different names. So use most of your food budget only on whole foods.
And the human body metabolizes fructose differently than sugar. HFCS is actually a hepatotoxin that will be metabolized directly into fat.
According to Dr. Richard Johnson, head of Nephrology at the University of Colorado, the excessive consumption of fructose in the American diet is the major factor in the rise of diabetes rates in this country. Fructose breaks down into a variety of toxins that can devastate your health.
The adverse effects of fructose are:
- Elevates uric acid levels, which may lead to inflammation and other diseases like hypertension, kidney disease, and fatty liver. The safest range of uric acid is between 3 to 5.5 milligrams per deciliter. If your uric acid level is higher than this, you are at risk to the negative health impacts of fructose.
- Leads to insulin resistance.
- It causes metabolic dysfunction. The classic metabolic syndrome: weight gain, abdominal obesity, decreased HDL and increased LDL, elevated blood sugar, elevated triglycerides, and high blood pressure.
- It overloads and damages the liver. All the fructose you eat gets delivered to your liver which gets severely overloaded leading to potential organ damage like thecondition known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
- Adversely affects insulin and leptin signaling. By turning off your body’s appetite-control system. It fails to stimulate insulin, which in turn fails to suppress he hunger hormone, which then fails to stimulate leptin or “the satiety hormone causing you to eat more and develop insulin resistance.
- It creates habituation and dependence, the same way that ethanol does
- It is used by cancer cells to increase their proliferation – it “feeds” the cancer cells, promoting cell division and speeding their growth, which allow the cancer to spread faster.
- Can increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, according to a number of researches. According to some experts, Alzheimer’s and other brain disorders may be caused by the constant burning of glucose for fuel by your brain.
A New Discovered Cause of Diabetes
Some new research, which included data from 25 peer-reviewed studies conducted in North America, Europe and Pacific Asia, shows there’s another deadly culprit besides bad dieting (high sugars and carbo intake) and wrong lifestyle (little exercising) which is contributing to this epidemic: Pesticides.
The researchers in the study found that exposure to any type of pesticide can increase diabetes risk by as much as 75 percent. The pesticides most strongly associated with developing type 2 diabetes were DDE and DDT.
In spite of having been banned worldwide -in some cases for decades, these toxic chemicals seem to be going to persist in the environment forever. Because pesticides, together with other organic pollutants, including PCBs, and organochlorines, are resistant to biodegradation which is why they’re present almost everywhere in the environment.
What makes things worse is that when a pesticide begins to break down, it forms new chemicals that may actually be more toxic than the original chemical.
And after years of exposure through eating pesticide-laden foods, drinking contaminated water, and being exposed to plastics and other man-made materials, these toxins gradually build up in our fat cells setting off with with the disruption of your endocrine system then promote fat storage in the liver, pancreas, and muscles. In turn, this results in insulin resistance and a range of health problems, including type 2 diabetes.
This new research found that exposure to ANY pesticide significantly increases your risk of diabetes. Now think that besides being exposed to a few pesticides, we in the western world are exposed to more than 500 toxins per day.
All you can do to defend yourself by this new threat to your health that promotes diabetes disease you should:
- Avoid using bug sprays and weed killers in your own home and yard
- Adopt a good water filter (Reverse Osmosis type).
- Buy only organic, locally grown produce whenever you can.
- Detox regularly twice a year (in the following posts you will find the advised “organ cleanses” which are cheap, natural, safe and effective
BUT the good news is: Type 2 Diabetes can be completely naturally reversed and cured in a relatively short time with Natural Health Cures.
To cure Type 2 Diabetes it is necessary to APPLY IMMEDIATELY a radical lifestile change which, when it comes to cure such a dangerous diseases, has to be strictly observed forever.
This lifestyle has been described in my post General Health Guidelines; and there is quite a strong possibility that just a few months of just this lifestile change alone will totally reverse the disease.
The 19 Steps to increase your insulin and leptin sensitivity – and to prevent, reverse and/or cure type 2 diabetes
1 Exercise. Is one of the fastest, most powerful ways to lower your insulin and leptin resistance.Exercise regularly and intensely. Exercise increases insulin sensitivity. Adopt High intensity interval training (HIIT), which has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity by as much as 24 percent in just four weeks.
2 Eliminate ALL processed foods. especially those made with fructose. Conventional diabetes treatment has failed over the last 50 years partly because of its seriously flawed dietary principles.
3 Eliminate ALL sugars, also “healthful” sugars and grains like whole, organic, or sprouted grains.
4 Eliminate ALL high complex carbohydrates including potatoes, corn, rice, and grain products like breads, pasta, cereals, rice, potatoes, and corn and restrict fruits until your blood sugar gets under control.
All type 2 diabetics need to swap out their grains and sugars for other foods, such as protein, green veggies, and healthy sources of fat.
Sugars and grains raise your blood sugar and insulin is released to direct the extra energy into storage. Only small amount of it is stored as a starch (called glycogen), but the majority is stored as fat.
Continued consumption of sugars and grains makes your blood sugar spike leading to increased insulin and to increased fat storage. The extra fat then produces more leptin hormone that tells your brain when to eat, how much to eat, and most importantly, when to stop eating.
5 Eliminate ALL processed meats. In a groundbreaking study comparing processed meats to unprocessed meats for the first time,7,8 researchers at Harvard School of Public Health found that eating processed meat is associated with a 42 percent higher risk of heart disease and a 19 percent higher risk of type 2 diabetes. They did not find any risk of heart disease or diabetes among individuals eating unprocessed red meat such as beef, pork, or lamb.
6 Eliminate ALL trans fats, which increase your risk for diabetes and inflammation by interfering with your insulin receptors.
7 Intake plenty of omega-3 fats from a high-quality, animal-based source.
8 Intake probiotics. The more good bacteria you have in your gut, the stronger your immunity and the better your overall function will be. And consume fermented foods like natto, miso, kefir, raw organic cheese, and cultured vegetables. .
9 Intake prebiotics. These are beneficial bacteria that assist with food digestion and absorption playing a significant role in your immune function. Inulin is a prebiotic fiber found in onions, leeks, and garlic that has also shown particular promise for type 2 diabetes thanks to its antioxidant effects.
Unprocessed whole foods, particularly onions and garlic and Psyllium seed husk), are among the best prebiotics, you should be getting plenty of them in your diet.
10 Eat a high-fiber diet. This is the emerging key strategy you can use to lower your risk. More Than 40-50 Grams of Fiber per 1,000 calories consumed.a Day May Lower Your Diabetes Risk and promote weight loss.
Cereal and vegetable top fiber can lower diabetes risk by 19 percent and 16 percent, respectively, but fruit fiber has no such beneficial effect. Ido not rely on cereal or other grains as a source of fiber, because s whole-grain breads, cereal, pasta, and other forms of grains have non-fiber carbohydrates (sugar and starch) in addition to the fiber.
Soluble finer isparticularly beneficial for type 2 diabetes (that found in cucumbers, blueberries, beans, and nuts),it’s helping to slow down your digestion and slow your body’s breakdown of carbohydrates and the absorption of sugar, helping with blood sugar control.
Insoluble fiber, does not dissolve. It and helps add bulk to your stool. to move food through your digestive tract more quickly for healthy elimination.
It is found in dark green leafy vegetables, green beans, celery, and carrots,
Never get your fiber from grains, only from vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
These foods contain high level of both soluble and insoluble fiber:
- Green beans
- broccoli and Brussels sprouts
- Root vegetables and tubers, including onions and sweet potatoes
- Psyllium seed husk, flax, and chia seeds
A High-Fiber Diet Is Beneficial Even if You Don’t Have Diabetes
It can help reduce your risk of premature death from any cause, and it helps to reduce your risk of a number of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cholesterol, high blood pressure, and cancer.
11 Eat a moderate amount of high-quality protein from meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, legumes, and nuts. Make sure that animal-based protein comes from organically raised, grass-fed or pastured meats, eggs, and dairy. Genetically engineered animal feed and pesticides carry the risk of potential health complications.
Most westerners, especially Americans, eat far too much protein, you do not need more than one-half gram of protein per pound of lean body mass (most people rarely need more than 40-70 grams of protein a day). Only persons heavily exercising or competing and pregnant women would need about 25 percent more,
12 Eat high quantities of high-quality healthy fats, both saturated and monounsaturated. For most people 50-85 percent of their daily calories in the form of healthy fats is needed. You can get it from coconut and coconut oil, avocados, butter, nuts, and animal fats.
13 Eat high quantities of non-starchy vegetables.
Amaranth, Artichoke hearts, Asparagus, Bean sprouts, Beets Brussels sprouts, Broccoli ,Cabbage (green, bok choy, Chinese), Carrots, Cauliflower,Cucumbe, Eggplant, Greens (collard, kale, mustard, turnip) , Mushrooms ,Okra, Onions, Pea pods, Peppers, Radishes, Salad greens (chicory, endive, escarole, lettuce, romaine, spinach, arugula, radicchio, watercress) Sprouts, Squash (cushaw, summer, crookneck, spaghetti, zucchini), Tomato Turnips, Water chestnuts.
14 Do intermittent fasting. To speed progress with your weight or overall healthIf incorporate intermittent fasting. intermittent fasting means cycling through periods of abundant and scarse nutrition. This cycling produces a number of biochemical benefits, including improved insulin/leptin sensitivity, lowered triglycerides.
When you fast, your liver burns off the available liver fat. So you’re temporarily depleting your liver fat stores, restoring metabolic stability to your liver and improving hepatic insulin sensitivity
Do intermittent fasting until your insulin/leptin resistance improves (or your weight, blood pressure, cholesterol ratios, or diabetes normalize). After that, you only need to do it “as needed” to maintain your healthy state.
15 Watch your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio. Today’s diet employs mostly processed and genetically engineered omega-6 fats (corn, soy, canola, safflower, peanut, and sunflower oil) and too little omega-3 fats in deadly ratio of even 50:1 in favor of omega-6, which has seriously adverse health consequences.
Reduce your consumption of vegetable oils (this means not cooking with them, and avoiding processed foods), and increase your intake of animal-based omega-3, such as krill oil, flaxseed oil and walnut oil, and it’s good to include these in your diet as well. Just know they cannot take the place of animal-based omega-3s.
16 Maintain optimal vitamin D levels by getting regular sun exposure or by using a high-quality tanning bed. Vitamin D is a steroid hormone that influences virtually every cell in your body. As a last resort, consider oral supplementation.
Vitamin D is highly beneficial for type 2 diabetes. If you supplement remember to monitor it for blood levels. Ideally your blood level of 25(OH)D should be 60ng/ml.
And please note that if you supplement vitamin D3, you need to increase intake of vitamin K2.
Vitamin D3 dosage recommendations:
- Age 5 to 10 2500 units
- Age 18 to 30 8000 units
- Pregnant Women 8000 units
17 Drink pure, clean water. Swap all the sweetened beverages like sodas and fruit juices for pure water.
18. Take the organ cleanses which will detoxify our body. Detoxification is and important premise to heal from any disease
The cleanse procedures for your body are six: kidneys, liver/gallbladder, Intestine, Colon, Lungs and Skin cleanse.
19 Support the cure with these supplements:
A great help to reduce the risk of type 1 diabetes is in Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA). It does this by protecting the insuline-secreting cells of the pancreas from free radical damage caused by autoimmunity. Also ALA improve glucose control both in type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
ALA is a powerful anti-oxidant that will alleviate the damaging effects of diabetes (heart attacks, strokes, blindness, kidney damage, and neurologic injury.
If ALA is taken as soon as diabetes is diagnosed nerve damage can be prevented.
ALA is safe even in large doses. 300 to 500 mg of ALA has to be taken three times a day with meals. It has to be taken with a multivitamin because at the highest dosage it depletes the body storage of biotin, an essential vitamin.
80 percent of Americans are likely magnesium deficient.
A natural source of magnesium is from whole, organic foods, especially dark green leafy vegetables; other good sources include seaweed, dried pumpkin seeds, unsweetened cocoa, flaxseed, almond butter, and whey, but it can be difficult to get enough from diet alone. So you have to supplement.
All diabetics are magnesium deficient which causes insulin resistance. To combat diabetes Magnesium Supplementation is necessary to lower blood sugar levels and improve insuline sensitivity.
Studies have shown that Magnesium also protect from the Metabolic Syndrome which today affects 1 in 4 people.
Long term Magnesium deficiency is at the center of Diabetes as well as Atherosclerosis, Heart Attack and Strokes.
Take a quarter teaspoon every day in a glass of water with a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and add a quarter teaspoon of baking soda.
DHA (decosahexaenoic acid)
DHA is a component of fish oil, reduces inflammation and is vital for healthy blood vessels. Do not take EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) another component of fish oil because it thins the blood too much and suppresses immunity.
CURCUMIN and QUERCETIN
These are two flavonoids, to be taken together and dissolved in oils to enhance their effect, dramatically reduce inflammation. Curcumin specifically prevents the proliferation of leaky blood vessels in certain tissues which causes kidney failure and diabetic rethinopathy, the damage to the retina from long term diabetes.
NATURAL VIT E
Take the best natural vit E, that which contains mixed tocopherols which high amounts of gamma-type E, an anti-inflammatory component which does not contain vegetable oils. Take one 200 IU capsules twice a day with food.
This is an extract of French maritime pine bark which protects the blood vessels and helps to ward off typical diabetes complications: heart attack, strokes, peripheral vascular disease. Take one 150 mg dose twice a day.
Always spice your coffee and tea drinks with a sprinkle of cinnamon powder.
Cinnamon as a treatment for diabetes diabetes gained plausibility in 2003 by a study from Alam Khan whose study suggested that several grams of cassia cinnamon per day could lower fasting blood glucose
Mr. Khan randomized Type 2 diabetes on three groups of 1, 3 and 6 gr of cinnamon for 40 days. All three groups improved their fasting blood glucose, and blood lipid levels.
Proof That Reversing Diabetes Through Just Dieting Is Possible.
Now it has been confirmed by a group of researchers that what is perhaps the worse of all disease, Diabetes, can be reversed even just by diet alone,
A DIET OF JUST 600 CALORIES A DAY REVERSED DIABETES
According to a study published in the journal Diabetologia.
After just one week on the diet, diabetes patients saw their blood glucose levels return to normal, indicating their diabetes had gone into remission. And eight of the 11 patients remained diabetes-free three months after they stopped the diet.
Researchers at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom are showing that a quick reversing of diabetes is possible through diet alone, especially in its early years,
The findings apply to people who have not had diabetes for a long period of time —the participants had diabetes for less than four years prior to the study
The participants to the study adhered to a liquid-based diet consisting of meal replacement drinks. It also included three portions of non-starchy vegetables per day. The diet lasted for eight weeks. Just after seven days on this diet, the participants’ blood-glucose levels were comparable with those of people who did not have diabetes.
Liquid fasting with vegetable and fruit loaded with spirulina and chlorella and loads of combine organic superfoods, provides real medical miracles.
Regularly monitor your fasting insulin level. Your fasting insulin level, or A1-C, should be between 2 and 4. The higher your level, the worse your insulin sensitivity is.
Until next time.
