For those living with diabetes, its causes can become somewhat unclear.
In essence, diabetes is the phenomenon when your body stops releasing and responding to the average amounts of insulin after you eat foods with many carbohydrates, fats, and sugars.
Insulin is a hormone made by your pancreas that allows your body to use the sugar from carbohydrates for energy. It also allows your body to store that sugar as fat for later use. This is a critical metabolic process in your body as it regulates your blood sugar from being too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia).
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. It is most likely to occur in people over 40, and especially those who are more overweight.
Caused by insulin resistance, when the hormone insulin is being released to do its job of managing blood sugar, but they do not respond to it as it should.
This is a severe metabolic disorder caused by high blood sugar. The body can keep up with the high blood sugar by producing more insulin to keep up for a short period, but eventually, over time the insulin receptor sites burnout.
Old habits die hard, but there are ways to reverse the effect of type 2 diabetes naturally.
The key is transforming your diet and how you get energy from food.
Cut These Foods out of Your Diet to Begin to Reverse Your Diabetes:
- Refined sugar enters the bloodstream rapidly and causes extreme spikes the blood glucose.
- Avoid sugars at all costs, even raw honey and maple syrup are risky during this detox.
- Switch to stevia, a natural sweetener with almost no calories.
- Grains, and especially wheat – as it contains gluten, contain lots of carbohydrates that are broken down into sugar within only a few minutes of consumption.
- Gluten also causes intestinal inflammation- and that can affect hormones like cortisol and leptin, and also lead to spikes in blood sugar.
Conventional Cow’s Milk
- A1 casein produced by cows milk can cause a similar immune response to gluten
- Only purchase raw and organic dairy from pasture-raised cows
- Beer and sweet liquor are high in carbohydrates and should be avoided
- Many studies show that heavy alcohol consumption is directly correlated to a higher incidence of type 2 diabetes
- GMO products are within a lot of processed foods. Including corn, soy, and canola products.
- Remove all GMO and all packaged foods from your diet.
- Removing hydrogenated oils like vegetable oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, and canola oil will have a big payoff. They are processed heavily, treated at high temperatures, and combined with dyes and bleaching ingredients.
