Diabetes – A Serious Problem, With A Simple Solution

Your body consists of trillions of cells. These cells rely on energy/fuel (glucose) in order to carry out their function, ability to repair them self, replication, and protect them self from damage. Every cell in your body has between 100 and 100,000 insulin receptor sites (the part of the cell that insulin attaches to, thus allowing glucose to pass through the cell wall). When we eat food, our body breaks that food down into usable vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and energy (glucose: through proteins and carbohydrates), and the part of our food that is not used, is passed through your intestines for elimination (like fiber – which also serves a purpose). Vitamins help perform activities like protecting cells from damage, guide mineral utilization, and regulate cell and tissue growth. Minerals are used to build cell walls, and amino acids allow chemical reactions to occur that help cells function and work together properly - and the fuel that keeps this whole operation going is glucose. When you eat food and create glucose (usable energy) your blood-glucose levels rise; a healthy body recognizes this and a chemical signal tells the “beta cells” in the pancreas to secrete insulin. Once the blood-glucose levels are low, another chemical signal tells the pancreas to stop secreting insulin. The reason for this is because glucose moves throughout your body in the bloodstream, but cannot enter cells (where it is needed) without insulin. Insulin facilitates the transportation of glucose across the cell membrane – without insulin, glucose cannot pass through the cell wall and cannot be used. Without insulin, it is possible to eat a lot of food (and produce plenty of glucose), but never get the glucose into the cell where it is needed, causing the cell to starve, even though the necessary energy is right outside its cell wall. When insufficient insulin is produced, or receptor sites become insensitive – this causes diabetes (the Hallmark of hyperglycemia) – too much glucose in the blood.

White Rice is quickly processed into glucose. but if your liver is damaged (liver disease or excessive drinking) it cannot effectively carry out this process. Lack of insulin production will lead to: Obesity. Unusual Weight Loss. damage your cardiovascular system. If insulin stays in the blood too long. Itchy Skin. because the sugar is not being used. and your body continues to release insulin. and replaces them with new cells) – disrupting Apoptosis is a precursor to cancer. Pasteurized Milk – the Pasteurization process kills two major proteins in milk which (when ingested) can also trigger an auto-immune attack throughout the body. With IRS – most glucose is eventually stored in fat (typically in the stomach area). Slow Wound Healing.Diabetes: Inadequate utilization and/or secretion of insulin which results in excessive sugar (glucose) in the blood. Tingling or Numbing in Hands and/or Feet. the insulin does not stop being produced (like a faucet that you can not turn off). and pancreas. Because the glucose is not used. leaving the glucose in the blood. Skin and Gum Disease. and cause serious . High Blood Pressure and Insulin Resistance. it will cause fatty deposits in the liver. this problem can become serious. Damaged proteins also interfere with the cell’s ability to detect damaged DNA – preventing cellular repair and affects “Apoptosis” (the natural life-cycle of the cell which removes old cells. Vaccinations – Mercury and Aluminum are suspected in causing juvenile onset diabetes (Type 1) – reducing the production of insulin. lungs. Weakness. or the insulin is not properly attaching to the receptors – in all cases – this decreases the glucose transfer into the cells. TYPE 2 Diabetes: Linked to Insulin Resistance Syndrome “IRS” IRS is when your body produces insulin. Hunger. leaving high amounts of glucose in the blood for extended periods of time (causing damage). Excessive Thirst. this can trigger an auto-immune attack on beta cells in the pancreas. it will bind with the insulin receptor sites on cells (clogging them) reducing the ability of the cells to bind with insulin – especially dangerous in the kidneys. Irritability. Chlorine (from drinking tap water or absorbed through skin from showers) . Fatigue. but the receptor sites on the cells do not recognize it (or are clogged). Blurred Vision. and also combines with vitamin e complexes to form “Alloxan” – a chemical that is toxic to beta cells. and diets high in white rice can lead to blood-glucose problems. Unbalanced diet can lead to TYPE 2 diabetes: Eating foods that produce high levels of glucose (starchy foods like white rice) can mean that the body cannot utilize sufficient amounts of the glucose produced. Too much insulin in the blood will also cause serious problems (especially in the liver). High Cholesterol. it is still seen by the body.depletes vitamin e. it means less insulin is being produced. It is your liver’s job to remove insulin from the blood. When your body metabolizes oxidized protein. Less insulin means that your body is less effective in regulating blood-glucose. Food cooked at a high temperature for a long period of time exposes the food to “protein oxidation” (charring your food. When your auto-immune system attacks beta cells in the pancreas. liver. Symptoms of this include: Frequent Urination. Without exercise. for example).

If insulin is not removed from your blood. and remain elevated long after a meal. your liver will release more (usually between . your body will release chemical signals that increase the production of inflammatory chemicals which leads to arthritis. Insufficient Blood Circulation (especially to the lower extremities). which can lead to cancer. and more fuel is used. Once proteins and glucose “bind” or “cross-link” to lipids they become severely degraded (weaker structure) and become only marginally functional. Your blood vessels. When your body “runs out” of glucose in the blood. ride a bike. this could cause: Blindness. lift weights. taking the glucose from the blood and fat tissue and use it for energy – this will lower the blood-glucose level in your circulatory system. swim. Nervous System Diseases. Normal blood-glucose level should be about 110 mg per deciliter. GOOD NEWS for TYPE 2 Diabetics It has been medically proven that current medications DO NOT significantly help control TYPE 2 diabetes. Compromised cells produce 50 times more free radicals than healthy cells. Blood tests are the most accurate for monitoring blood-glucose levels. If the blood-glucose level is between 110 and 126. and reduce symptoms of diabetic neuropathy. High Blood Pressure. and retina are most vulnerable to the “binding” and cross-link” process. Blood tests should be done in the morning before your first meal to measure the glucose levels after fasting.damage primarily to your heart and brain (two organs that are primarily lipid based . over time. One test each morning over two days that show a blood-glucose level above 126 mg/dl will indicate Diabetes. not determinative. remove this condition all together! 30-45 minutes of brisk activity a day (walk. Gum Disease. Typically. urine tests are only indicative. exposing you to oxidative stress! If this is not addressed.composed of fatty acids). along with some exercise will get this disease under control. and in most cases. under (or around) 110 is normal. especially organs that have a high lipid content (comprised mostly of fatty acids) like the heart and brain. a Diabetic’s blood-glucose will elevate quickly. would indicate a pre-diabetic condition. kidneys. lowering the blood-glucose level. Stroke and many other health issues. Deep breathing exercises will put more oxygen into your blood which will increase the fuel usage – do deep breathing exercises for at least 5-10 minutes before and after your exercises to maximize benefits. many doctors have even tried multiple prescriptions at the same time with no significant improvement… BUT – A small change in your diet.more combustion occurs. Think of what happens when you blow air onto a fire – the flames get bigger… The same thing happens when you introduce more oxygen into your body . Burning Foot Syndrome. This weakness can affect DNA structure within the cells. In fact. Alzheimer’s is slowly becoming recognized as Type 3 Diabetes: Autopsies reveal that Alzheimer victims have a high protein-glucose binding/cross-linking in the brain. nerve cells. Too much glucose in the blood over time will allow the glucose to “bind” or “cross-link” to organs. Kidney Failure. etc…) will cause your cells to use more energy (glucose).

vegetables than fats and sweets.. Alcohol: Alcohol can cause hypoglycemia shortly after drinking and for 8-12 hours after drinking. Carrots and Potatoes (etc. fast food. numbness. vegetables. Cereal. seeds and nuts. so it really is not the best food for you.meals). Any amount of alcohol intake can have very negative health consequences. * Diabetic eye disease. so it is never a good idea to drink after a workout. a major problem with diabetics. your liver will process alcohol BEFORE its function of releasing glucose. . the liver usually begins to produce glucose from stored carbohydrates to compensate. Many studies show that the Mediterranean Diet is by far the best diet to prevent diabetes. and disorientation. Meal Planning Recommendations A person with diabetes should eat more grains. dizziness.. tingling or burning sensation associated with diabetic nerve damage. Cookies. switch to whole grains. But drinking alcohol blocks the liver's ability to release glucose. When blood sugar levels drop. Bread. too much white rice will add to having too much glucose in your blood! High Fat or “Sugar Added Foods”: Store bought foods. Root Vegetables: Beets.) should only be eaten with other foods. beans. * High levels of triglycerides. and ALL PROCESSED PASTA. Alcohol Can Make Some Diabetic Problems Worse. * High blood pressure. Instead. so it is important to have good liver function (when drinking. Refined Corn: High Fructose Corn Syrup (found in almost all processed foods). And if you are diabetic. * Nerve damage in the arms or legs.000 mg a day Protein: Too much protein will lead to kidney damage because of the protein binding with glucose. Crackers. or on an empty stomach). beans. drinking can increase the pain. Alcohol can damage nerve cells. This diet will help keep your heart and body systems healthy. The liver will not release glucose again until the alcohol has been processed and cleared from the body. Larger portions of vegetables (half the plate) and moderate portions of protein (one-quarter of the plate) and starch (one-quarter of the plate) is recommended. White Rice: White rice will convert to sugar more quickly than brown rice. Sodium: keep sodium intake to less than 2. even light drinking can cause nerve damage. The symptoms of too much alcohol and hypoglycemia can be similar -. The liver treats alcohol as a toxin and works to rid the body of alcohol as quickly as possible. For diabetics with nerve damage. And a damaged liver does this more slowly. packaged/canned food.sleepiness. Foods to stay away from while reversing diabetes include: Refined Flour: Bagels. Rolls.

This is necessary to combat the high levels of free radical release caused by the “binding” and “crosslinking” of proteins and glucose molecules that attached to lipid based organs. Complex Carbohydrates. a powerful anti-oxidant. stirred into a beverage. 50 mg per pound of body weight daily is recommended. Capsaicin (found in Cayenne): Capsaicin in the blood will kill the nerve growth in (and around) the pancreas (where they don’t belong) that is stopping the production of insulin . Chromium. and healthy carbohydrates. B Complex Vitamins. Protein. Supplements that will help your recovery: Water Soluble Niacin (vitamin b3): Niacin will protect against the on-set of diabetes three different ways. Optimum D-Tox: Optimum D-Tox contains a high level of trans-resveratrol. Gamma Oryzanol.000 heat units per capsule will produce medicinal results. Insulin Resistance Syndrome (IRS) or Syndrome X. This is not only good news for diabetics. Stabilized Rice Bran: Rice Bran is shown to reduce blood glucose levels. Tocotrienols and Antioxidants are all found in stabilized rice bran and are known to play a significantly positive role in glucose metabolism.specifically the nerves affecting the insulin-producing islets. fiber. Oral application of Capsaicin may take a little longer. Other studies confirmed that stabilized rice bran positively controls and manages blood glucose levels in diabetes mellitus. Niacin also stimulates insulin production and increases the sensitivity of the receptor sites on cells. whole-grain pasta. . Many people report that consuming stabilized rice bran reduces sugar cravings. Niacin restores the insulin producing beta cells (or deters destruction). grains. Hemicelluloses. Polysaccharides. but for anyone struggling with Hypoglycemia. The attachment to lipid based organs is called “ALE” Advanced Lipoxidation End product. and improve insulin synthesis in Type I and Type II diabetic subjects. beans. 5-8 drops once (or twice) a day in 6 ounces of water is recommended.Foods like bread. A study with diabetic mice showed that IV application of Capsaicin (with one dose) killed off those nerves virtually overnight – the diabetes was GONE!. Niacon inhibits the components of the immune system that attacks the pancreatic beta cells. these foods are loaded with vitamins. Hyperglycemia. As a group. Fat. Fiber. Tocopherols. Pain neurons surrounding the beta cells signal the pancreas to stop producing insulin. or eaten directly out of the bag) is recommended. and “AGE” Advanced Glycation End product. brown rice. and starchy vegetables should serve as the foundation of your diet (at least 6 servings a day). minerals. Two Tablespoons twice a day (sprinkled on salads. and the mood swings that come from raising and lowering blood sugar through dietary habits. 1-2 capsules per meal with 90. glycosylated hemoglobin levels.
