Did you know type 2 diabetes is totally preventable and often can be cured by using foods as medicine?
Consult your doctors before changing any diets. Never get off any medications unless you consult with your physician first. Here are a few things to consider if you would like to use food-based healing. When possible, buy organic to avoid pesticide residue. Increase oxygen in your heart and in your body, do Qigong, move, walk, do breathing exercises.Ignorance is not bliss. We can fix this.We have pumped our bodies with sugar and milled flour products, which create huge sugar spikes. There is no way our pancreras can secrete enough insulin to process it all. If we want to, we can make the dietary changes necessary to heal ourselves. The question is, do we want to?
Most if not all chemical medications have side effects, so many in fact that in some magazines, the disclaimers of the side effects of a wide variety of medications cover two or more full pages. Some of the side effects feel worse than the problem they are supposed to remedy. At first glance, this might seem like a no brainer. However, we are talking about changing our diet, the problem that created this problem in the first place. We are possibly talking about food addiction, and food that is used as a crutch for not dealing head on with other life issues. So the question remains, do we really want to change our diet?
If the answer is yes, there is help by using the right foods to eliminate type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. Since the problem with type 2 diabetes is not a lack of insulin, but rather a diminished potency of insulin, the foods listed below are recommended in addition to swiss chard and bitter melon. Keep in mind, we are not talking about what foods are your favorite tastes, but using these foods as medicine.
Cucumbers are the primary food for type 2 diabetes. They contain phytochemicals that improve the function of insulin. They will help to balance blood sugar and promote better energy levels. The phytochemicals which help this process are in the skin and in the seeds, so it is necessary to buy organic cucumbers without the wax coating. It is also beneficial to use a 3 horsepower blender to get a 95% success rate. Blenders with less horsepower will not micronize the food necessary to be assimilated by your cells.
Spring onions are very rich in chromium, a trace mineral that helps cells respond to insulin. In addition to chromium, experimental and clinical evidence suggest that “allylpropyldisufide” found in onion lowers blood sugar levels by increasing the amount of free insulin available. It does this by occupying sites in the liver where insulin is activated. This results in an increase in the amount of insulin available to usher glucose into cells causing a lowering of blood sugar. It is recommended to use the spring onion with the green tops.
Cumin seeds are an important herb that balances blood sugar and improves the insulin already present in the body. Cinnamon helps the body better effectively metabolize carbohydrates and improve energy levels after a meal.
Even more powerful than swiss chard is bitter melon, which is available at Oriental grocery stores. Bitter melon is inexpensive and has the highest amount of insulin like substance. In the long run, it can regenerate the pancreas. These two foods along with a lifestyle change are the keys to being successful.
You can live with type 2 diabetes, or you can completely heal diabetes. The only fruits diabetics can have are limes and acai. You must also lose carbohydrates, even from whole grains. The only source of carbohydrates for diabetics on this food-based healing system is from vegetables and beans. That’s it.
