High Blood Sugar Is an Indication of a more Serious Problem
Most of the medical establishment believes that diabetes Is a blood sugar imbalance.
Diabetics do not make enough insulin or the body does not use all the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that makes possible for glucose (sugar) to permeate cells and then transformed to energy. The pancreas secretes enzymes that assist carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism. When the pancreas is dysfunctional then digestive enzymes are not provided for digestion. The condition imbalances the liver, gall bladder, spleen and all digestive related organs. In unmanaged diabetes, glucose and fats remain in the blood stream, where with time, the primary body’s digestive organs become impaired and eventually diseased.
- Seventeen million Americans are walking around with diabetes, and 200,000 people will die this year due to related complications. Diabetes sets up conditions for heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, leg and foot amputations, pregnancy complications, and deaths related to flu and pneumonia. At risk, are the 5.9 million Americans who are unaware that they have the condition.
- We spend $100 Billion a year on diabetes, directly and indirectly. In 1997, the average health care cost for a person with diabetes was $10,071, compared with $2,699 for a person without diabetes.
- S. adults with diabetes increased 49% from 1990 to 2000. Increases are expected in the next decade and beyond.
- Diabetes is an epidemic. In 1990, there were only 4 U.S. states determined to be at epidemic levels. In 1995, that number increased to 11. In 2000, there were only 6 states that were not at epidemic levels. Now, there are no more reports!
What happened to the other 44 states in 10 years? What is occurring in our country where a disease can over run us? We are being secretly invaded by a force greater than any terrorist group. Is anyone paying attention? That’s more than 15 million plus people caught in the grips of this top level threat to our country. Where’s the equal level response by our government and medical establishment?
Top 7 Diabetic Problems
- Eye Problems & Blindness: Each year, 12,000-24,000 people become blind because of diabetic eye disease.
- Kidney Problems: Kidney problems. About 38,000 people with diabetes develop kidney failure each year, and over 100,000 are treated for this condition.
- Amputations: About 82,000 people have diabetes-related leg and foot amputations each year.
- Heart Problems: Heart problems. Heart disease and stroke cause about 65% of deaths among people with diabetes.
- Pregnancy Complications: About 18,000 women with preexisting diabetes deliver babies each year, and an estimated 135,000 expectant mothers are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. These women and their babies have an increased risk for serious complications.
- Flu & Pneumonia (related deaths): Each year, 10,000-30,000 people with diabetes die of complications from flu or pneumonia. They are roughly three times more likely to die of these complications than people without diabetes.
- Skin Problems: No one knows how many people suffer from skin inflammation (neuropathy, neuritis) or are pre-diabetic. Skin problems based on this condition rob the body’s ability to clear toxins, maintain immunity and/or protect itself from outside infections.
The “Big 4”
Top 4 Diabetic Complaints from Sufferers of Diabetes
After years of listening to many clients complaining about their symptoms, its apparent that there are basically 4 troubling markers that bother most sufferers. Zero in on these and most of the other complaints go away. They are:
- Excess Heat – Face becomes red, worsens insomnia, eyes reddened, body sores
- Leg pain & Inflammation – Due to excess blood heat and toxicity, the skin itches, becomes irritated, giving rise to wounded skin.
- Chronic Fatigue – weakened energy due to excess protein pollution and blood sugar imbalance,
- Excess Fluid Retention – Body swells up in the abdomen and legs, clogged elimination channels due to Colon and Kidney dysfunction. This further exacerbates the overall body inflammation due to holding onto toxic fluids rather than making room for fresh, balanced pH fluids in the channels.
These key areas require focus and once brought into balance the body diabetic characteristics are alleviated. Over time all the bio markers go into balanced and the body climbs into a cleansing cycle back to health.
Top 5 Contributors to Diabetes
What would your life be without these toxic contributors?
While diabetes in the last 20 years has grown to epidemic levels in all 50 states of the U.S., there are some interesting contributors that are on the rise:
- Polluted Food: More pesticides, hormones, unnatural vitamin fortification, food additives (MSG and similar salts), sweeteners (corn syrup, substitutes) etc.
- Food quality is another causative characteristic. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are 50% more than the prior generation had to endure.
- Stress weakens the general constitution which potentiates diabetes. If the body doesn’t have enough energy to run then it becomes toxic and sluggish while unable to balance blood sugar and multiple body toxins.
- Excess meat consumption causes an undue stress on the liver. Red meat makes the liver temperature rise 5 degrees Fahrenheit. In the middle age years and older, the body is not able to manage the excess heat and thus liver function becomes gradually dismantled.
- Excess sugar ingestion increases body toxicity. With an already overwhelmed body, sugar acidifies the whole physical environment. The acidity wears down all organ functions and tissues. Early Aging becomes the tradeoff for the sweet experience. When you look at the whole process, it is addictive. The body is becoming sluggish. We crave sugar to speed up our body and make us feel good, temporarily. However, our physical condition worsens, becomes more toxic and further slows. We crave that much more and eat you know what – sugar!
Now I am not saying you have to give it all up and be a discipline 75 year old athlete. But imagine how you would feel. How much fun, life quality, would you have if you cut back two-thirds, one-half, just one-third could make a real difference, where your body could mount a come-back!
The Underlying Cause of Diabetes
Diet pollution: Cupcakes, sugared cereals, chips and diet sodas are all vegetarian but don’t nourish anyone no matter what their biochemical requirements may be. Eventually the nutritional deficiency will symptomatically show up in a doctor’s office. When you are younger the body can cleanse the dead calories but when you pass 40-50 years all kinds of digestive problems will surface in overweight problems, digestive disease, diabetes, joint pain, insomnia, heart disease, etc.
Consumption of too many dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, ice cream) can produce iron deficiencies. Not only do these animal by products contain very low amounts of iron but they also block iron absorption even when fortified. Contrast this with kale which has 14 times more iron than a lean steak. The belief that meat and its by-products is the best source for protein strength can consumptively occupy the space where you would ingest vegetables, grains, fruits and seeds which are high in overall nutrition. Yet, we are taught in grade school that milk is “nature’s most perfect food”, provided as a courtesy from the National Dairy Council.
Diabetes Research: Dr. Inder Singh took 80 diabetics patients and restricted their diet (low fat, 20- 30 grams a day, no sugar). Within 6 weeks, over 60% of the patients no longer needed insulin. Over time the percentage steadily increased with insulin requirements lowered. Numerous similar studies have duplicated the results.
“Too much of a Good Thing”
Throughout most history, people usually have eaten whatever they chose. Researching around the world, scientists have found that shortened life expectancy can be clearly correlated to the eating of flesh. Russian Kurgi, Greenlanders, Eskimos and the Laplanders eat the most meat in the world while having the lowest life expectancy-30 years. This shortened duration is not due entirely to their severe environment. Similar climate confronted by other peoples with a diet of little or no meat provided for longer life. 90 -100 years life expectancy is not unusual for Pakistan Hunzakuts, East Indian Todas, Yucatan Indians and a surprisingly large group of Russian Caucasians.
Here we are in the United States with the highest degree of medical technology in the world, the most moderate climate, the largest purchaser of animal meat and meat by-products while at the same time maintaining one of the lowest life expectancies of all industrialized nations.
Researchers tracking cultures living the longest have found that it’s not unusual for these peoples to live a life of quality. Work and play beyond 80 years and beyond is typical. A majority, attain 100 years remaining active and honored by all they live with. Absence of excess protein produces a slender, densely built frame.
