Special Note for Diabetes Patients

Diabetes is a serious matter, it is the 7th leading cause of death in the USA and is growing at an epidemic rate, if left untreated it can lead to blindness, limb amputations or worse. One of the key factors in controlling type 2 diabetes comes down to reducing simple sugars and unhealthy fats in the diet.

FIRST: Colon cleanse: As in all other programs we suggest a colon cleanse. The largest part of our immune system is in our intestines, if they are not clean we are only hurting yourself. The #2 Killer in America is Colon Cancer. Nearly every disease can be traced to a Toxic ColonBreast, Prostate, Diabetes and Heart Disease begin in the colon. One can carry from 10 to 30 pounds of waste in the colon at one time, get it out and start your healing process. Order a colon cleanse by clicking here or here.

SECOND: A BASIC NUTRITIONAL FOUNDATION: This is a must to enhance this program. Please see steps 1 through 3 of THE PROGRAM IN GENERAL section.

If you have diabetes, supplementation is more than important, it is vital. Here are a few supplements that diabetics should/could be taking. (Diabetes is a serious condition. Talk to your doctor before taking any supplements as they may interfere with your medication.)

Cinnamon – cinnamon is a very powerful antioxidant with the ability to neutralize free radicals, often elevated in diabetics, Cinnamon also triples insulin’s efficiency, ensure to purchase Ceylon Cinnamon.

Alpha Lipoic Acid – a very powerful, natural antioxidant; and is suggested as the single most important supplement you can take to treat diabetes.

Chromium & Vanadium – Chromium can actually help insulin transport sugar to the cells.

Banaba Leaf – Banaba Leaf Extract provides a blood sugar lowering effect similar to that of insulin in that it induces glucose transport from the blood into body cells.

Momordica – In human studies, bitter melon (Momordica) demonstrates significant blood-sugar control after food intake and overall blood sugar-lowering effects.

Gymnema Sylvestre – Suppress blood glucose, especially after eating and is insulinotropic and promotes insulin secretion.

Fenugreek – This compound stimulates insulin secretion, thereby limiting the extent to which blood glucose is elevated.

A study noted a possible mechanism between PTSD and diabetes: “might involve the stress response associated with these conditions contributing to inflammation and insulin resistance.”

Foods to Avoid for Diabetics Refined starches such as white bread, the body converts white flour, white pasta and white rice, almost instantly, into simple sugars. Opt for small portions of whole wheat, whole grains and brown rice instead. Corn and potatoes are also a source of simple starches and should be replaced with fibrous vegetables like beans and Jerusalem artichokes.  This is a difficult task as most, if not all foods that are packaged are in some way adding to your risk.

Many studies have shown that exercise is of great benefit to diabetics and can significantly reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Regular physical activity helps reduce weight, lower blood sugar, improve insulin sensitivity, strengthen the immune system, improve circulation, lower blood pressure, lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, raise HDL (“good”) cholesterol, and reduce risk of heart disease, a life without some sort of exercise is a life headed for trouble, even simple walking helps.

    From a reader in a mail to us:

    From: John A.
    Subject: Diabetes and exercise

    Message Body:
    Here is an important tip that I had to learn the hard way;

    Exercise is an important part of staying healthy, however for patients with diabetes you must have the supervison of a doctor. I have type II diabetes and peripheral nueropathy. My doctor wanted me to increase my exercise and lose some weight which is pretty standard once diagnosed with diabetes. What I did not do was discuss an exercise plan with my doctor. From my time in the military I knew that a simple way to exercise and get quick results was to take up running. Unfortunately I did not know about the complication of Charcot foot for patients with diabetes and nueropathy. My first run was my last as I broke multiple bones in my foot and ended up in a wheel chair for six months. Always make a plan with your doctor first, if I had followed this advice I could have saved myself alot of problems.
