Whole 30 Day #19 and my blood sugar has balanced out at and average of 89 mg/dl for the last three days. Yes folks, I have once again cured type II diabetes through diet and exercise. Well not really cured, but have discovered a way to keep it completely in check.
Maybe, just maybe it is not T2B at all. It could be that I simply have an intolerance for foods that humans were never meant to eat. I know that for me I have discovered that eating from nature has brought about significant changes to not just my blood sugar but also many other area’s of my life. It wasn’t long ago that I would eat a ton of food only to realize that a few hours later I am starving and would start searching for food again. Now I can eat a small breakfast of just a couple of eggs with a few slices of bacon in the early morning and not feel those hunger pangs again until mid-day at lunch time.
What if it is as simple as eating the way many cultures have eaten through the centuries before us with a simple pot of meat and vegetables on the burner and freshly picked fruits which are in season locally? What if we had to walk for miles each day to hunt and gather the foods we need to survive?
The truth is that we live in a modern world where those things have given way to driving to the supermarket and popping something into the microwave. No we are not hunting and gathering or working the fields each day to earn our bounty of food to survive. Today we drive to the office, sit down all day and go home to relax.
As our belly’s grow over are belts we have forgotten those long historical lists of physical activities that no only brought us food but also kept our bodies in good shape and physically fit. Rarely do we actually sit down and eat the foods of are labor with an intense appreciation of just what it took to put that food on our plates. We have lost the ability to taste our food and rarely pay attention to the difference between what is fresh and what is processed.
We so these same things day after day and year after year and one day are surprised when our doctor lets us know just how unhealthy we actually are. The blood test does not lie.
The good news is that it doesn’t take long to begin the reversing process and allow our bodies and minds to become healthy once again. With just a change in attitude, a little exercise and eating the right foods it isn’t long before that light comes on as we realize that we are starting to feel better. Our energy levels are coming back to where they should have always been. We are human and we are eating human food and allowing our bodies to do human work. We go to bed at the end of the day and sleep all night in a deep relaxation that we know we have earned and deserve. We find a way to breakout of the darkness and start planning days out in the wonders of nature and allow the sun to shine upon our face.
All of the physical ailments we once have start vanishing one by one. My back isn’t sore anymore, I no longer have those issues with my belly, all of those blotches I had on my skin are slowly disappearing. I feel alive and wake up with vigor and am ready to take on anything that life throws at me today. Yes, I am a human and I will do all of those things which make me human because it is those things make me feel truly alive.
It doesn’t take much to start making these adjustments. Those foods that make us thrive are readily available to to us. All we have to do is purchase, cook and eat them. We don’t have to join a gym at first. All we have to do is get out there and start walking a few times each day. With the assistance of modern day machines like the treadmill and a bowflex machine I have been able to find a way to exercise each day in this rainy part of the world. There is no longer any excuse for humans to be any less than human.
