To cure diabetes naturally one must realize that traditionally type II diabetes or insulin-resistant diabetes, has been regarded as a blood sugar disease with conventional medicine focusing on blood sugar levels (go here to read what a normal blood sugar reading should be). Emerging research has now demonstrated that blood sugar imbalance is simply a symptom of diabetes, not the underlying cause. Diabetes is actually a disease of cellular miscommunication and faulty insulin and leptin signaling.
Cure Diabetes Naturally – Cellular Miscommunication
According to Dr. Ron Rosedale, nationally recognized expert on nutritional and metabolic medicine, “Efficient communication between cells determines our health and this communication takes place by hormones.” Poor nutrition and exposure to environmental toxins create cellular inflammation and this toxicity in the body causes cell membranes to become inflamed, leading to a disruption in the communication within and in between cells. Cellular miscommunication desensitizes hormone receptors within the cell, affecting the cell’s ability to respond to hormones.
The Hormone Insulin Is Sensitive To Sugars And Carbs
Insulin, a hormone produced by beta cells in the pancreas, has many functions in the body, one of which is moderating blood sugar levels and directing sugar from the blood into the cells where it can be metabolized for energy. A diet high in sugars creates spiked levels of insulin in the body as the pancreas responds to elevated glucose and insulin signaling is ignored by desensitized hormone receptors.
Glucose remains in the blood, while the pancreas attempts to lower blood sugar by producing a second wave of insulin. Repeated insulin raises and cellular inflammation leads to insulin resistance, which then leads to insulin-resistant diabetes.
The Hormone Leptin – Controls Hunger
Leptin, a hormone produced by fat cells, regulates hunger signals and induces the body to burn fat, instead of sugar, for energy. High blood sugar causes sugar to be metabolized in fat cells leading to rising leptin levels. Like insulin, if these cells are not able to hear leptin signals because of cellular miscommunication, continual surges of leptin are produced, leading to leptin resistance.
The brain perceives leptin resistance as low levels of leptin in the body, causing hunger signals to continue even after a full meal. The body then begins to store fat instead of burning it and leptin resistance affects the liver and other organs’ capacity to metabolize sugar, which in turn affects insulin levels, leading to insulin resistance.
Cure diabetes naturally – Is it possible? (Tweet Me)
Can diabetes be cured? Yes. A new wave of doctors are having success with diabetic patients using nutrition and detoxification protocols designed to remove inflammation at the cellular level and facilitate insulin and leptin signaling.
By giving patients a nutritional overhaul and opening up elimination pathways, cells begin to heal and function as they were designed to. Hormone receptors become sensitive again and are able to receive insulin and leptin messages.
Cure Diabetes Naturally In Three Steps
The appropriate diet to cure diabetes naturally, therefore, consists of three main goals.
First: Lower insulin by eliminating all foods that convert to sugar in the body, such as refined carbohydrates, starches, processed sugars and grains.
Second: Remove foods that cause cellular inflammation, such as excitotoxins (like msg and aspartame, found in most processed foods), rancid vegetable oils like margarine, pasteurized dairy and meat from animals raised on industrialized feed lots, treated with hormones and antibiotics. Exchanging these foods for healthy alternatives like fresh unprocessed foods, raw dairy products and grass-fed animal meats, ensures nutrition while eliminating toxic by-products.
Third: Increase healthy fat consumption like oily fish, nuts, avocadoes and olive oil, to balance leptin levels.
A further detoxification may be necessary to help remove any cellular inflammation that is left in the cell membrane caused by exposure to environmental toxins, such as neurotoxins found in chemical house-hold cleaners, heavy metal toxicity from sources such as mercury amalgams, and bio toxins, such as molds commonly found in homes.
