It seems that the more I read and the more I listen to the experts associated with the paleo/primal movement the angrier I get. I have come to realize that there is a good possibility that with proper knowledge of what a correct diet really consists of I never should have damaged my body to the point of getting type II diabetes. Between the grain industry, out own Federal government, the media, the big pharma and my very own doctors who all painted a picture of a good healthy diet built around grains led me to the point I am at right now… fighting each day for my life to live with a pancreas that has so many damaged beta cells that it can only produce a limited amount of insulin. Wow, that was a mouthful!
But with this realization I have to acknowledge that at this given point in my life there is not much I can do other than grasping onto this new healthier way of life and push each day to try to correct the mistakes of the past. I have to make an example of myself to help others who are in the same situation that I am in, but more importantly become an inspiration to the younger generations so they can learn to live a good healthy and long life.
At 53 years old I am hearing a calling to re-educate myself and become certified to teach this new way of life. Ladies and gentleman, I believe that the, “Type II Diabetes Coach” is in the process of being born. T2D Coach.
