Diabetes The Health Epidemic

 Diabetes Is Reversible

Type 2 diabetes is a disease in which your pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or your body does not properly use the insulin it makes. Type 2 diabetes, is the most common type of diabetes. Hyperglycemia, is another name for high blood sugar. High blood sugar occurs when your blood sugar (or blood glucose) levels are above normal. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes mainly from the food you eat. The right diet can keep blood sugar levels in check, while the wrong foods can lead to dangerous complications.

Let us Begin.

If you have Type 2 diabetes your physician should be working aggressively with you to treat the disease with diet and exercise. Consequently if your treatment is inadequate from your doctor,  then you are being shunted into a money making pipeline for the medical industry and used as a cash cow.

Exercise: An Essential Part of Managing Diabetes

But most conventional physicians won’t take that course. Doctors prescribe drugs that control the symptoms without treating the underlying disease, putting you on a sure road to illness and disability.



Prescription pillsAll of the blood lowering medications  have side effects, and all of them gradually lose their effectiveness. This wouldn’t be such shameful behaviour if it weren’t for the fact that adult-onset diabetes is one of the most preventable of all chronic diseases. The disease is highly treatable and reversible through diet and exercise.

Taking the right supplements and herbs can be very effective. Type 2 diabetes, also known as non-insulin-dependent diabetes, is caused by poor diet, obesity and lack of exercise. Three-quarters of those diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes can avoid insulin injections and other drugs by losing weight.


Making the Shift to Naturally Stable Blood Sugar

Pile of money

Before trying weight loss and exercise, some physicians will put “pre-diabetic” patients, with only marginally high blood sugar, on diabetes drugs. Early detection and control of high blood sugar, the less likely a person is to suffer from the side-effects of diabetes. Sugar related disorders are such a profitable business. Nutrition and weight loss are rarely given anything more than cursory lip service.

In addition to nutritional supplements let’s get back to the basic food, water and exercise. Diet and healthy lifestyle choices are very important, we can help prevent and support many health disorders. This is not an alternative approach-it is fundamental to optimal health.
