A Quick Preamble:
OK, I’ve been very fortunate and have never personally suffered with this particular debilitating and increasingly expanding, health destroying ailment – the few times my blood-sugar has hit a big spike has been purely through my own doing – or I should say “over-doing”… if you know what I mean..!?!
Unfortunately, (hey, nobody should WANT to experience this in any way, right..!) I have gained plenty of experience due to the ‘sufferings’ of family members and close friends over the last couple of decades or so… diabetes is not fun, it is however, very manageable and in the case of the “Type 2 variety, because it’s more-often-than-not a “lifestyle” and/or “dietary” issue, it’s totally preventable and generally curable – that’s right, ‘Type 2 diabetes CAN BE CURED – IF YOU WANT IT TO BE…
… and this fact has been proven as true, not just by my own positive experiences, but also via the numerous tests, trials and studies undertaken by major scientific and medical communities throughout the world – and “Natural” products, that you can find at home, feature hugely amongst the means of prevention and cure…
… meaning YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RELY ON THE MASSIVE DIABETES DRUG INDUSTRY THAT BIG-PHARMA WANT YOU TO RELY ON..!
Cutting to The Chase:
I think, before we go any further, it’s important that I impress upon you a few FACTS and get some BS out of the way at the same time…
TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS – your pancreas just does not produce insulin, at all… ever.
With this type, you’re fully dependent on timed and regulated injections of insulin doses directly into your blood-stream.
At the time of writing this article, exhaustive and detailed research carried out by “yours truly” has re-confirmed that ‘TYPE 1′ DIABETES CANNOT BE CURED and if anybody right now is claiming the opposite or trying to sell you some “miracle cure”, ignore them… they’re either very misinformed or they’re out-n-out lying to you – probably because they want to screw you out of some of your hard-earned cash..!
Hopefully this will change at some point in the future… exhaustive studies are still a major ongoing task for the scientific community at large.
The best analogy I can think of is this: ‘Type 1 diabetes is akin to being born without a left hand… you’ll never, ever, no matter the type of “miracle cure” they try to sell you, be able to grow that hand… BUT you’ll absolutely be able to adapt your Glucofort lifestyle and be fully able to live a full and happy life without it.
TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS – your pancreas doesn’t produce quite enough insulin, or your body’s cells just won’t react to insulin.
Now on the other hand – and pardon the (slightly sick) pun, this type of diabetes is very preventable and most definitely curable… with some good guidance, a little bit of effort and some minor lifestyle changes, you DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE OR SUFFER WITH ‘TYPE 2 DIABETES…
… meaning my analogy looks something like this: ‘Type 2 diabetes is akin to being born with both hands but then later in life you injure your left hand… if you take the right action at the right time, your hand is eventually fixed and functioning again.
A FEW TYPE 2 PREVENTION BASICS…
♦ Stop Consuming Sugar, of any and every type… pastries, cookies, fizzy drinks and many other food and beverage types – if you’ve read all my articles previous to this, you’ll know that sugar is pure poison and you’ll have learned what it does to you – apart from what it does as a major contributor to diabetes.
♦ Stop Smoking – I really don’t believe I need to say anymore about this stinking, murderous habit as I have written plenty about this too..!
♦ Stop EXCESSIVE Alcohol Consumption – moderation is key… a little bit of what you like can be beneficial – everyday heavy consumption or “binge-drinking” is health destroying and will definitely worsen your diabetes condition.
♦ Eat “Naturally” Healthy – if you’ve been paying attention to my newsletters and articles, then you should know by now what I’m saying here… healthy fats and oils, power-foods and organic wherever and whenever possible – simple..!
♦ Exercise – I cannot emphasise enough how a daily session of sweat-inducing, lung-expanding exercise is absolutely paramount to your good health and especially important for keeping diabetes at bay – it doesn’t have to be a long session, 20 minutes will do, and it can be any kind you prefer, so long as you do something – it WILL help big-time… !
SOME OF THE COMMON UGLY SYMPTOMS…
Apart from the obvious rise in blood-sugar levels, there are these:
♦ Constant fatigue
♦ Blurred vision
♦ Numbness or “tingling” at your extremities (fingertips, toes etc.)
♦ A constant thirst
♦ Excessive urination
♦ Raised blood pressure
♦ Minor injuries like cuts and grazes, are slow to heal.
SOME NATURAL TREATMENTS…
While there are quite a number of herbs, foods or methods of remedying the undesirable effects of Type 2 diabetes, these are my personal favourites (and I personally use a few of these practically every day) because they’ve always seemed to form a major part of family and friends diets as they made their journey toward their cure, and they’re all pretty much based on things you can easily find in your local grocery store – if you haven’t already got them at home or in your garden:
#1 – Cinnamon
Its’ effective use as a remedy for Type 2 diabetes is still a topic for debate amongst those that want to take the time to debate it, but the fact is that the consumption of cinnamon is a centuries-old habit that has always been associated with bodily health – in more than one way.
Several studies and reviews have been carried over recent years with what I think are very positive results…
“A 2012 review of several recent studies concluded that the use of cinnamon had a potentially beneficial effect on glycemic control… One study published in 2009 found that a 500 mg capsule of cinnamon taken twice a day for 90 days improved hemoglobin A1C levels in people with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes (hemoglobin A1C levels greater than 7 percent).”
