How to Reverse Diabetes Naturally
#health, #style, #beauty
It is well known that type 2 diabetes is increasing in this country, not decreasing. In fact, some experts claim that type 2 diabetes alone will bankrupt the entire US healthcare system in the next 10 years. Obviously, something is unknown about type 2 diabetes or, is not being applied. I believe it is the latter.
So why is the information about how to reverse diabetes naturally not well known and applied?
It’s because there is no money to be made in giving you the information to empower yourself to be healthy.
There is a ton of money to be made in the selling of diabetic medications. The implications here are obvious.
So, let’s talk about how to reverse diabetes naturally, that is to say, without medications. In my opinion, there is a 3 pronged approach that when used together is very powerful in gradually guiding your body back to a normal state. A key point is gradually. In natural healthcare approaches, you have to get rid of a couple of notions that are absolutely pervasive in western allopathic medicine. One, is that there is a pill for every symptom. Another, is impatience, because your body didn’t get this way overnight and it is foolish to assume the treatments will work overnight.
All of the elements of this 3 pronged approach work towards one thing: lower your insulin levels. You see, type 2 diabetes has elevated blood sugar as the sign in your body that is the most ballyhooed by the the medical pharmaceutical complex. They are putting the emphasis on the wrong thing. Sure, elevated blood sugar is nasty. It is very inflammatory and causes damage to your eyes, your limbs and your kidneys. However, the treatments to reverse diabetes naturally, concentrate on lowering high insulin levels which then will lower the blood sugar levels. This treats the underlying cause not the sign/symptom.
How do you do this? You figure out what to eat, how to exercise and what natural herbs and supplements to take. I can definitely help here as I see clients and patients in my naturopathic and nutritional practice every week.
I think the emphasis is what you eat first, how you exercise second and what supplements third.
Is there not an unbelievable amount of info about all of these things especially with the internet info explosion today? Yikes!
You would guess that to engage in how to reverse diabetes naturally, you would have to give up your love affair with sugar.
And you would be right!
Sugar is super addictive and time after time I have seen that if the person can weather the storm of craving for about a week, it becomes much less of an issue.
But there is more.
Yeah, overt sugar consumption(candy bar) will lead you down this path but really anything that quickly elevates your blood sugar will. Good things nutritionally, like fruit and grain and underground root vegetables have the potential to rapidly elevate your blood sugar. So part of the strategy involves being aware of that you need to slow down the rush of glucose into your blood. You do this by following a few simple rules.
1. Always eat protein at every meal and snack. It will in itself slow the rush of glucose but even more importantly stimulates a hormone that works in opposition to insulin. That hormone is glucagon.
2. Make sure that you eat far more fibrous carbs than non fibrous carbs. What does that mean? Well, first of all. you have to know what a carb is. It’s everything you can eat that is not protein or fat. And I ‘m talking real
3. Eat great fats. And quite a bit of them. Eating fat does not make you fat, carbs do! However, crappy, artificial, man made fats that only exist for the food producers desire for long term storage and profit will really screw up your body. What are the names of those fats you should avoid: any thing that starts with the words hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated plus soy, rapeseed, and cottonseed. Let me make this easy. Don’t eat packaged food! Great fats are from avocados, fish, olives and coconut and the oils that are derived from them.
4. Fruit juice which has fructose in it, pop and artificial sweeteners make it impossible to regain control of you insulin levels. And remember, the heart of the information on how to reverse diabetes naturally is about getting your insulin levels low.
I know this article was a bit long but there is a boatload of information for you to know if you you want to learn how to reverse diabetes naturally. I didn’t even cover the other 2 prongs. I will in a future article. Knowledge is power. Arm yourself with knowledge so that you don’t end up wondering why your type 2 diabetes is not getting better or going away while you pop pills or inject insulin.
