Diabetes
Diabetes is a deadly stalker and it is the leading cause of heart disease, kidney
failure, mental disorder, blindness and impotence. It is estimated that over half of
the people with this condition do not even realize that they have it. Diabetes is
generally what is known as high or elevated blood glucose (sugar), and can be
categorized as two types, Type I and Type 2. A common misconception many
people have is that all diabetics need insulin. Insulin is only used for Type 1
diabetics who make up only 10% of the diabetic population and some Type 2
diabetics who require additional insulin.
Type 1 diabetes, also known as juvenile diabetes, as it commonly appears in those
below age 20 (though it may affect people of any age), is a result of the inability of
the pancreas to produce insulin. Insulin is needed to open up or unlock the cells
so that nutrients can get in so that the cell can produce energy efficiently.
Therefore some signs of diabetes (Type 1) is sudden weight loss, because of the
cells' inability to utilize sugar, and extreme thirst due to the attempt of the kidneys
to rid the body of excess glucose by means of urination.
Type 2 diabetes is the more common type. Like Type 1 diabetes, it is recognized
by high blood glucose levels, but the reasons behind this are different.
Initially Type 2 diabetics produce much more insulin than healthy individuals. The
problem starts at what are called the insulin receptor sites on the cells' surfaces,
where they would not allow glucose into the cell. This is known as insulin
insensitivity or insulin resistance and is the main problem for 90% of diabetics.
Over a period of time the pancreas can also slow down insulin production further
aggravating the problem.
Type 2 diabetes sneaks up on you. You do not suddenly lose weight or become
extremely thirsty and/or hungry. It is usually discovered after a routine blood test,
however, there are a few common characteristics of Type 2 diabetes.
The majority are overweight, with most of the weight in the abdominal area.
Excess Weight is normally associated with insulin resistance.
Most people are inactive. Exercise enhances insulin sensitivity and reduces the risk
of developing diabetes and keeps you fit at the right weight. Years of an unhealthy
diet, extra pounds and lack of exercise begin to take their toll and we develop
insensitivity.
In addition to being the main culprit behind Type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance is
also part of a condition known as Syndrome X.
Syndrome X is a basically hyper-insulination that causes a bunch of disorders that
includes an increased risk of heart disease, strokes, heart attacks, Type 2 diabetes,
high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, hypertension,
arteriosclerosis, low HDL cholesterol (often referred to as good cholesterol since it
ushers excess cholesterol out of the body) and obesity. In all individuals who had
some form of these diseases, it was determined that insulin resistance was a
constant underlying condition. So therefore, by reducing your risk of diabetes, you
will be pleased to know that you are actually preventing a host of other
degenerative diseases.
Type 2 diabetes is an epidemic that can be reversed. Firstly let us look at what
causes it. For a vast majority, it is caused by lifestyle factors. This means the food
we eat, the supplements we take, our activity level, our weight and high stress
levels.
The type of diet we practice has much to do with this epidemic, if not everything to
do with it, for example, the bad oils we use, high levels of carbohydrates,
sweeteners and so on.
The basic underlying disorder is known to be the derangement of the blood sugar
control system by badly engineered fats and oils. These oils are poisonous and are
advertised as healthy so as to create a market for these products. The bad oils are
oils that are unsaturated and are hydrogenated with the ability to increase shelf
life. Some of these oils are from soy, cottonseed and grape-seed. The oils that are
healthy are the saturated and natural oils like coconut oil, olive oil and so on to put
it simply, hydrogenated processed oils are bad oils and are deleterious to good
health.
High carb foods or high carbohydrate foods, wheat, rice and so on have a high
glycemic index which causes the blood glucose to raise and stay elevated for a
long time. The Glycemic Index (G .1) is a numerical system of measuring how fast
a carbohydrate triggers a rise in circulating blood sugar. The higher the number,
the greater the blood sugar response, so a low G.I. food will cause a small rise
while a high G.I. food will trigger a dramatic spike in blood glucose levels.
Reversing Type 2 Diabetes
Steps to do to regain Insulin Sensitivity in Your Cellular System
In planning this change of lifestyle, work closely with your doctor, especially if
you are on insulin, so that your reversal process, does not create states of hyper or
hypoglycemia.
Measure and record your fasting blood sugar in the morning and your blood sugar
reading at night. Comments on overindulgence in food or high levels of stress
should be recorded to account for anomalies, (big variations)
1. Stop intake of sugar in all forms including soft drinks and boxed juices.
Read the labels on everything you buy. Eliminate products containing high
fructose corn syrup.
2. Stop all intake of wheat products: white flour or whole-wheat. No bread,
roti, biscuit, pasta, macaroni, cookies, cakes, pastries, spaghetti etc. White flour
has alloxan which has been shown to cause diabetes in rats.
3. Start an exercise program walking for 1 hour / four times per week to start. It
is not about calories, but working to change the body's metabolism back into an
efficient sugar burner. As you gain in fitness you can work up to weights doing
slow burn exercises.
4. Begin to consume healthy quantities of Flax Seed Oil (2 tablespoons per
day), Deep Sea Fish Oil, Omega 3.6.9 (2: 1000mg Tabs twice a day) or UDO's
oil -this is to help rebuild the lipid profile of the cell surface and regenerate
insulin sensitivity.
Formula for complete cell profile recharge
1/2 lb. of Cottage Cheese
2 shot glasses Flax Seed Oil
2 teaspoons Lecithin
2 shot glasses Flax Seed
Add water to right consistency for mayonnaise type spread and blend the
above with sea salt (or pan salt), lemon etc. to taste.
Use 2 to 3 tablespoons with food. It rebuilds, cells, helps with oxygen,
absorption and relieves constipation. This helps to make matrix of cell
surface, improves insulin sensitivity, increase the efficiency of the
sodium/potassium pump activity and relieve constipation.
This formula can be used in place of straight flax seed oil, fish oil or UDO's
3.6.9. oil.
5. Eat raw nuts in small quantities: Brazil nuts, pumpkin seed, sunflower seeds,
cashew nuts etc.
6. CUT OUT ALL HYDROGENATED OIL. (This is all oils in the grocery
except virgin olive oil) CUT OUT ALL MARGARINE, SYNTHETIC
BUTTERS ETC. AND ALL FOODS WITH TRANS-FATS OR
HYDROGENATED OIL.
7. Use only olive oil or homemade coconut oil and butter in your diet. No
hydrogenated oils, no margarine, no trans-fats. Eat raw nuts in small amounts,
brazil nuts (selenium), pumpkin seed (zinc), cashews, sunflower seeds etc.
8. Take Supplements
A. Calcium, magnesium and potassium supplements
B. Trace minerals
C. Vitamins and Minerals supplement
D. Super Greens formula
E. Chromium Picolinate
F. Vitamin C 1000 mg (2 - 4 daily) Also Lysine / Proline as directed
9. Halt all in-take of milk and milk products. Exception: Cottage cheese
mixture given in No. 4
10. Use fiber in your diet for regular bowel movement to help regularize
sugar reading.
Constipation Formula
1 Glass of water
2 tablespoons Flax Seed
2 tablespoons Flax Seed Oil
Blend and drink in the morning. If you are using the Cottage cheese formula
in No. 5 it will help relieve constipation. Fiber helps to regulate sugar
uptake and lessen sugar spikes.
11. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of bottled or filtered water per day. If you are
drinking tap water pass it through a charcoal filter.
12. Avoid foods that are neurotoxins (brain poisons): Monosodium
glutamate (M.S.G.), artificial sweeteners (aspartame etc.), synthetic
sweeteners. For those of you who must have a sweetener use stevia.
13. Use foods that are low on the glycemic index, (see chart)
Vegetables, greens, peas, beans, chicken, eggs, and raw fruits.
14. No fried foods, fried chicken, spring rolls, egg rolls, onion rings, fried
snacks etc.
15. Slow down or eliminate heavy meats: beef, pork, goat, wild meat, etc. No
preserved meats, sausage, ham etc.
16. Work with your doctor to slowly eliminate medicines as your sugar
readings come down. Takes 4-8 weeks.
Follow the above instruction for at least eighteen months.
Try to eat fresh foods that you have prepared as much as possible.
