The Ultimate Q & A On How To Reverse Diabetes

 In this article you are going to learn how to reverse diabetes. The statistics on diabetes are really getting scary. The incidence of diabetes rose 33% from 1990-1998 and the incidence continues to rise today. Can it be reversed or is it a life long condition that needs to be managed?

 Approximately 1/3 of people with the disease don't even know they have it yet. Are your children in this group? Type II diabetes used to  be called adult onset diabetes. Unfortunately because of the alarming rate of children contracting this disease the “adult onset” has been dropped.

  I think our biggest concern needs to be for our children. Never in the history of the world have so many sugar laced products been available to our kids. Candy has infiltrated every corner of the universe. The kids don't know the game they are playing with their health. They have no clue, it's up to us. We are the adults, right? Birthday parties are great examples of kids bouncing off the walls from over consumption of cake, ice cream, soda pop and cupcakes.

  You would think that that would be an eye opener for most. Don't parents notice the intense psychological changes in the way their children act?  Do parents realize the damage they are doing to their babies. Sugar is the reward system for good behavior. What kind of a message are we teaching them? The thought and or threat of type II diabetes never enters the fray. Modern day children live on sugar, it's no wonder the adult onset has been abolished. Our kids are prime time candidates for type II diabetes. They are horrific little sugar addicts. Does this picture alter your thinking at all? It should.

  The fact that people are asking the question, how to reverse diabetes is promising. That means there is some controversy stirring that it can be reversed. Diabetes is caused by the body's inability to process glucose. In type I diabetes the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin because the insulin producing cells of the pancreas have been destroyed...

   In type II diabetes, the pancreas can produce enough insulin but the insulin does not do its job. Insulin manages the distribution and transport of glucose throughout the body. When carbohydrates are broken down into simple sugars the majority of it is glucose. Insulin acts as the security guard and opens the doors for glucose to enter the cell...

  Some of that glucose is converted to immediate, short term energy, and some is stashed away for later use as glycogen in the liver and muscles. Your blood sugar is a measurement of the amount of glucose in your blood. The glycemic index is a system that ranks foods by how fast their carbohydrate values are converted into glucose...

 So after all that, let's look at how to reverse diabetes. There is way to much misleading information out there. The majority of people still believe their doctors and of course closely monitor the glycemic index of everything they eat. Thing is your GI is supposed to rise after you eat, it's actually a good thing not the dreaded I'm gonna die dogma.

  We get fuel from glucose, energy, life sustaining energy. We have been told to stay away from foods with a higher glycemic index, almost as if these foods carried the AIDS virus. Ever think of why we eat? We eat to get energy right? If you throw away the high glycemic index complex carbohydrates, do you really think that the low glycemic index foods like meats, cheeses and vegetable oils are a better choice? I didn't think so...

 Complex starches high on the index actually prevent weight gain and tell your body you've had enough food. In other words your body is satisfied with your food choice. It's that misleading information thing again. The medical establishment certainly doesn't want you to know how to reverse diabetes, they lose a valued, lifelong customer...

 A great example of the glycemic index hypothesis would be comparing a slice of cheese pizza and a piece of luscious chocolate cake with some yummy, decadent, to die for frosting. On the other side you have a couple of potato's and some freshly cut slices of carrots. The pizza and the chocolate cake have a lower glycemic index, so according to the scare tactics of the glycemic index, the pizza and chocolate cake would be a better choice, really? I know you know that's false.

  Funny how studies in countries where diabetes was uncommon were not following anything close to the diabetes diet. They were not avoiding complex starches and complex carbohydrates. In fact they were everyday staples. The truth is that the right diet can reverse type II diabetes altogether in 90% of cases and type I diabetics can drastically reduce their insulin requirements. If you want to know how to reverse diabetes then...

  You need to change your diet! Stop eating refined, enriched, chemically enhanced packaged foods. Stay away as much as possible from simple carbohydrates and refined sugars. Reduce all meat (and yes, chicken is meat) and dairy. A whole food, complex, plant based diet will, in 90% of cases reverse your diabetes. Remember this yucky stuff on the right here?

  When you eat complex carbohydrates like fruits, vegetables, legumes and grains in their natural whole forms, the sugars are absorbed more slowly, mainly because of the benefit of the fiber not being removed as it is in processed foods. This helps to keep your blood sugar levels constant and will not stimulate excess amounts of insulin. Whereas simple carbs like sugar, concentrated sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup are absorbed rapidly causing up and down spikes in your blood sugar...

It's really a fairly simple concept. The foods that you put in your mouth initiate the process of digestion. Whether or not that digestive system needs to go into overdrive is all up to you. I've said this before but I'll say it again, chew your food.

  Mastication is more important than you think. Just think about how much more labor intensive your digestion is when you practically swallow your food whole, you know who you are. Pay attention to what you eat and how well you chew whatever you just ate. Give your pancreas a rest here and there. It contributes to so many more vital functions than just regulating and producing insulin.

  You don't have to believe me about how to reverse diabetes, check out the populations throughout history who have not had to deal with diabetes. They subsisted on whole rice, potato's, non-GMO corn, fruits, vegetables and other complex carbohydrates and starches.

  History doesn't lie. So many cultures have subsisted on a nearly 100% rice or corn diet. The difference? It wasn't polished, refined, processed, canned or preserved. Diabetes isn't even in the vocabulary for these cultures. Just another invented and well labeled disease that was born when man started re-arranging our food supply. They really don't want you to know how to reverse diabetes. It's all about profits and long term insulin loyalty. It is certainly not about your health.
