I’ve been sitting in on some webinars lately which featured the topic of Type 2 Diabetes, and the evidence continues to show that conventional treatment is not the best way to go. Here are a few highlights of the information:
- High blood sugar is not a disease – it’s a SYMPTOM of the underlying problem, which is fat. Sugar, carbs, and fruits do not cause diabetes. It’s caused when the muscle cells are compromised with fat, and the insulin can no longer penetrate the cell to allow glucose to leave the bloodstream and enter the cells. (Note: While obesity definitely contributes to diabetes, even thin people can be affected due to this type of fat).
- Diabetics are at increased risk for lots of other health issues as well, including nerve damage, kidney disease, and a much higher risk of heart disease – just to name a few.
- The medications prescribed for Type 2 Diabetes today are treating a symptom while contributing to a list of other problems. Weight gain (which makes diabetes even worse) and accelerated aging are just two. Excess insulin is just as bad as the high glucose levels. The Accord Study shows that people have a higher risk of death when given intensive insulin treatment.
- Even Type 1 Diabetes who are producing no insulin can greatly lower the amount of medication needed for treatment with dietary change. Check out this website for details.You can read more about Type 2 Diabetes on my website here.
Why MANAGE this disease when you can get rid of it by switching to a delicious plant-based diet? If you or a loved one suffer from diabetes, please don’t wait.
Whatever you do—whether you eat or drink or not—do it all to the glory of God!
