Not only is type 2 diabetes completely preventable, it is usually curable with some simple lifestyle adjustments.
Diabetes is an epidemic affecting more than 26 million Americans. In addition, there are over 80 million people who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, meaning it is only a matter of time before they too will be put on a medication “for the rest of their life”. Unfortunately, most people have been misinformed by their doctor as to what diabetes really is. Diabetes is a disease of insulin and leptin signaling, not a disease of blood sugar, which is why the medical community’s approach to its treatment is not getting us anywhere. Medications are NOT the answer for type 2 diabetes; restoring sensitivity to insulin and leptin is what’s needed.
Signs you may be pre-diabetic or diabetic
You could be experiencing pre-diabetes or diabetes if you experience unusual weight gain, excessive thirst, blurred vision, frequent infections, extreme hunger even after eating, irritability, blood sugar handling issues, chronic fatigue, low or high blood pressure and numbness and tingling in hands and feet.
There are two types of diabetes
Type 2 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is by far the more common form of the disease, affecting 90 to 95 percent of diabetics, and is completely preventable and nearly 100% curable. If you have type 2, your body is producing some insulin but is unable to recognize insulin and use it properly. This is an advanced stage of insulin resistance. Since your insulin is inadequate, sugar can’t get into your cells and instead builds up in your blood, causing a variety of problems. This is why diabetics have elevated blood sugar levels.
Type 1 diabetes
In Type 1 diabetes, your body’s own immune system destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas, resulting in a complete deficiency of the hormone insulin. This deficiency of insulin is why Type 1 is called “insulin-dependent”—because more often than not, type 1 diabetics must give themselves supplemental insulin.
I was told by my doctor that all I could do was “control” my diabetes. Is there a way to cure it?
Yes! Not only is Type 2 diabetes 100% preventable but it is also 100% curable in most cases. Because we address the underlying cause of diabetes, we have great success in our office.
How does diabetes affect my body even if I am taking a medication?
What most diabetics don’t know is that even though they are taking a medication, the medication will not protect them from suffering the collateral damage that comes along with a diabetes diagnosis.
Diabetics will still suffer many of the following complications even while taking medication:
- 68% develop Heart Disease
- 50% of all new cases of blindness occur in diabetics on medication
- 60% of all amputations occur in diabetics on medication
- 70% develop neuropathy
- 30% develop diabetic retinopathy
- 50% develop thyroid problems
- On Average Reduces YOUR Life by 8.5 years
- 2 fold increase in Dementia
Even on medication I am unable to keep my blood glucose stable, why?
The nutrition plans recommended by most doctors and even the American Diabetes Association allow too much sugar and foods that break down into sugar once consumed, which is a big problem. In addition, many of the “allowable” foods are devoid of vital nutrients and contain many toxic ingredients. At the cellular level, these factors continue to cause damage to cell membranes, insulin receptors and leptin receptors preventing them from healing. In our office we utilize specialized protocols that balance glucose metabolism and allow healing to take place at the cellular level. As a result, patients experience stabilization of their blood glucose levels very quickly.
