Eat your way out of diabetes. Drugs don’t work
Type 2 diabetes is a lifestyle condition that occurs when there is too much sugar in the blood. When blood sugar is continuously high, because of a processed food diet rich in starchy carbohydrates and sugar, the body starts to break down. High blood sugar levels that go unregulated for too long desensitize the body. Soon, the body can no longer use insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas.
TYPE 2 DIABETES AND INSULIN RESISTANCE
Insulin is important. This hormone helps deliver glucose to the cells after sugar and starch are broken down by the body, a process essential to cellular energy. Insulin also helps move glucose from the blood.
This is where type 1 and type 2 diabetes differ. Up to 90 percent of diabetes cases are type 2, where sugar-flooded cells become insulin resistant and are not able to utilize the insulin produced by the pancreas. In the remaining cases of type 1 diabetes, the pancreas is unable to produce insulin.
Once cells become resistant to insulin, glucose stays in the bloodstream instead of moving into the cells. Then a vicious cycle occurs – the pancreas releases even more insulin to move the sugar out of the bloodstream, which can soon cause a hormonal and thyroid imbalance.
Several critical lifestyle factors increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, including a family history of a poor diet that contributes to the condition, carrying too much belly fat, and having high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Type 2 diabetes risk also increases in those over 40 and/or of
American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian or Pacific Islander, Latino, or Black descent – only when a starchy, sugary diet is eaten.
This insulin resistance that contributes to type 2 diabetes is created by diet. In reality, this is great news to have. Risk factors for this lifestyle condition are within your control. Changing the way you eat by removing starchy, sugary, processed foods from your diet can directly improve your health and may even reverse the effects of type 2 diabetes.
BLAME DIABETES ON YOUR DIET
The American Diabetes Association clearly states that type 2 diabetes is caused by genetic and lifestyle factors.1 According to the ADA, one reason to avoid the processed food diet is because being overweight increases the risk of type 2 diabetes.
The ADA urges everyone to avoid sugar- sweetened beverages that can raise blood glucose and trigger both diabetes and weight gain.
Researchers have been trying to tell us this for some time. Soft drinks sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup are not only full of empty calories, but they can encourage the development of diabetes, even in children.2 These drinks are full of reactive compounds that can cause cell and tissue damage that further contributes to the disease. High-fructose corn syrup can also be found in condiments and baked goods.
University of Minnesota School of Public Health researchers weren’t pulling any punches when they said that fast food, offered in large portions with poor nutritional value, can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease.
When researchers examined the eating habits of Singapore residents, with findings published in the American Heart Association journal Circulation, they noted that people who ate fast food two or more times per week increased their risk of type 2 diabetes by 27 per cent.
The diabetes-diet connection is undeniable3, but there is an upside. Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health discovered that people who improved their diet by just 10 per cent over four years – by eating Really Healthy Foods and avoiding junk foods and sugar – were able to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by 20 per cent. This is compared to people who did not make a change to their diet.4
EAT YOUR WAY OUT OF DIABETES
It may be hard to make major lifestyle changes at first, but this diabetes news really is uplifting. You don’t have to be a slave to your genetics, even if diabetes appears to run in your family. Taking into account a genetic predisposition to a certain condition, lifestyle factors have a much bigger impact on health. As research has already proven, your diet has the biggest impact on your risk and your reversal of type 2 diabetes.
If you are prediabetic, have type 2 diabetes, or are currently eating a processed food diet, it’s time to make a change. With a powerful combination of Really Healthy Foods and supporting nutrients, you can clear inflammation, balance blood sugar, and promote healing in your body. This effective form of diabetes rehabilitation is easier than many of us have been led to believe.
Instead of living with a dangerous lifestyle condition, you can make two important changes to turn your health around:
1. Cut the Sugar: An anti-diabetes diet is an anti-inflammatory diet. Avoid processed foods high in sugar and starchy carbohydrates like pastries, cereals, breads, white rice, potatoes, crackers, and dairy products. In their place, enjoy healthy fats; nuts, beans, and seeds; grass-fed meats and fish; fresh or frozen vegetables and dark- skinned fruits; and healthy carbohydrate alternatives like quinoa, millet, buckwheat, and legume pasta, which keep blood sugar levels stable.
2. Supply Missing Nutrients: This second step is one you don’t want to overlook since missing nutrients can restore health to parts of your body that have been damaged by type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon is a power- nutrient with direct application for type 2 diabetes recovery; it helps the body better utilize insulin secreted by the pancreas.5 The anti-inflammatory proteolytic enzyme Serrapeptase works alongside cinnamon to curb inflammation from a processed food diet and to restore healthy blood flow, critical in a body damaged by diabetes.
Last but certainly not least, magnesium is another potent diabetes nutrient; low magnesium levels have been detected in people with type 2 diabetes.6
Conventional medicine says it’s impossible to reverse insulin resistance and poor health caused by diabetes. Your doctor may recommend drugs and insulin to control blood sugar without ever getting to the root of the problem. If you’re looking for a cure, medicine does not have one, but every health condition has a cause. When you take away the lifestyle factors that contribute to diabetes, you can manage the illness or reverse it completely, in many cases. You may call that a “cure,” or you may call it healthy living.
