11-18-14 – Tuesday – Being Human and T2D

It is too often accepted amongst our culture that medication is the correct answer to addressing the physical disorder of Type II Diabetes. Systematically the blood needs to be ridden of excess sugar for by keeping there causes great damage to the body. Medication or insulin is the first step in helping the body correct this dangerous situation. But medication alone is not the total solution. The individual must understand the totality of exactly what is going on inside his/her own body. The must understand, learn and figure out exactly what it was that caused this problem and what personal choices they must take to live with T2D.

T2D is a permanent ailment and once the damage is done cannot be reversed, but there are steps that need to be taken to ensure that the individual can live a long healthy life. I hear these words too often spoken by our medical community, “Diet and Exercise”. I say that it is not diet and exercise that will help, but a whole new lifestyle change needs to be adopted. A lifestyle that of minimal stress, frequent activity and eating whole foods of grass fed beef and fresh non GMO vegetables. A lifestyle where good healthy fats replace sugar and carbohydrates as a source for energy. A lifestyle where ample time is spent in the comforts of nature where the sun shines brightly upon you face and the grass grows softly under your feet. A lifestyle where standing, walking and on occasions activities of physical strength and endurance will provide the individual with all the necessary exercise they need to allow their bodies to function correctly. A lifestyle where it is possible to enjoy the peace and quiet of 8 hours of slumber sleep each night to refresh and regenerate the body and mind.

It is time for the individual to adopt a lifestyle that of a human being.

  1. Food for thought.

    Type 2 diabetes can be reversible. Food is the most important thing here. Medication is probably needed but ensure you get it reduced when you know you’re getting better. My dad was type 2 and had many amputations over the years, ended with only 3 toes left, was on dialysis about 4 days a week and ended up bed ridden. Unfortunately he died of heart failure last year.:( I know he could have gotten better if we had known about how important diet is ten years ago. I find when you get to a certain point with diabetes, there’s no reversing it. You seem to be striving to eat low carb – which is exactly the diet all diabetics should be prescribed. Instead its just meds, and ‘oh make sure you eat bread’, Awful awful advice. Good luck with it!!

    • I know. I had to do my own research to discover the truth. It’s really not hard to find and it has been around for over 100 years. It seems that to sell medications for diabetes successfully big pharmaceutical companies have to get rid of the truth. It is as easy as diet and exercise. Eating from the Earth and not a package and working your body each day. I know too many people like your dad and it really angers me, but once I get this whole thing dialed in I am going to make it my mission to tell the world and maybe, just maybe we can save a few.
