Do you have Diabetes?

Do you have type 1 or type 2 Diabetes?

Do you think once you are a Diabetic you will always be a Diabetic?

Do you know what causes Diabetes?

Are you willing to make the changes necessary to improve your health naturally?

If so, Let's get started!

What is Diabetes?

The dictionary states that Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels that result from defects in insulin secretion, or action, or both.

Normally, blood glucose levels are tightly controlled by insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas.
Insulin is an anabolic hormone, that is, one that encourages storage of fat and protein.
Insulin lowers the blood glucose level.
The absence or insufficient production of insulin causes hyperglycemia. 
What are the complications of Diabetes?
Over time, diabetes can lead to:
–Vision Changes
–Kidney Damage
–Nerve Damage
–Strokes
–Coronary Heart Disease
–Accelerates the Hardening and Narrowing of the Arteries
Two major types of Diabetes
Type 1 Diabetes is known as the insulin dependent Diabetes.

The pancreas undergoes an autoimmune attack by the body itself, and is rendered incapable of making insulin.

  • The immune system mistakenly manufactures antibodies and inflammatory cells that are directed against and cause damage to patients' own body tissues.
  • Exposure to certain viral infections such as the mumps and organ damaging viruses such as the Coxsackie virus, or other environmental toxins may serve to trigger abnormal antibody responses that cause damage to the pancreas cells where insulin is made.
Type 2 Diabetes
  • Referred to as non-insulin dependent diabetes.
  • Patients can still produce insulin, but do so relatively inadequately for their body's needs.
  • Most of these cases are do to a direct result of poor eating habits, higher body weight, and lack of exercise.
  • There is a direct relationship between the degree of obesity and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
  • It is estimated that the chance to develop diabetes doubles for every 20% increase over desirable body weight.

Natural Treatments for Diabetes

  • Chromium Picolinate is the only mineral that regulates the way insulin functions in the body.
  • Chromium Picolinate acts as an insulin stabilizer by lowering high blood sugar or by raising low blood sugar.
  • Adequate chromium lowers cholesterol and tri-glycerides.
  • Research shows that cinnamon can aid in regulating the activity of insulin, cinnamon does not stimulate the release of insulin, but it helps insulin work more effectively.
  • Cinnamon can be taken in capsules, extracts, herbal teas, and essential oil.
  • You can improve blood sugar (glucose) levels by following a meal plan that has:
                1.  Fewer calories
                2.  An even amount of carbohydrates (30 - 45 grams per meal)
                3.  Healthy monounsaturated fats
  • Examples of foods that are high in monounsaturated fats include almond butter, almonds, and walnuts.
  • Increasing physical activity (for example, 30 minutes of walking per day).
  • There are roles for patient education, dietetic support, sensible exercise, with the goal of keeping both short-term and long-term blood glucose levels within acceptable bounds.
  • In addition, given the associated higher risks of cardiovascular disease, lifestyle modifications are recommended to control blood pressure.

Are you a Diabetic or you think you might be?  What are you doing about it?

I have low blood sugar and the natural program that I am on is working for me. I know of people personally that are diabetics that are on this natural program, that are off taking insulin and feeling great!

The natural program that I use and recommend is listed below:
