Reversing Insulin Resistance

Do you know what actually causes insulin resistance (Diabetes)? Contrary to popular belief this is a “man-made” Dis-Ease, having too much sugar causing a over-growth of acidosis which then feeds any underlying co-infections that cause liver and kidney issues.

Type 2 diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset or non-insulin-dependent diabetes) can be a life-long, chronic disease in which the body either does not produce enough insulin or the cells in out body doesn’t respond to insulin correctly. Because of these two problems, there isn’t enough insulin to move the glucose from the blood into the cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, the body’s cells can’t function properly.

Insulin Resistance

Type 2 diabetes is more likely to occur in people who are over the age of 40, overweight, or have a family history in diabetes. Certain ethnic and racial groups also have higher risk for type 2 diabetes, including black, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, Asian American and Pacific Islander. However, over the past decade the incidence of type2 diabetes has been increasing in adolescents and the young adult population.

According to recent research, type 2 diabetes cannot be cured, but individuals can have glucose levels that return to non-diabetes range, (complete remission) or pre-diabetes glucose level (partial remission) The primary means by which people with type 2 diabetes achieve remission is by losing significant amounts of weight.

We talk of remission and not a cure because it isn’t permanent. The beta cells have been damaged and the underlying genetic factors contributing to the person’s susceptibility to diabetes remain intact. Over time the disease process reasserts itself and continued destruction of the beta cells ensues. An environmental insult such as weight gain can bring back the symptomatic glucose intolerance.

Patients may also go into remission when prior to treatment they were glucose toxic. Glucose toxicity can temporarily shut down insulin production from the beta cell. When glucose levels are lowered the beta cells begin to function again. This is often seen in people who have had untreated diabetes for a long time and whose A1c level is acutely elevated. They may require insulin for a short period of time and once the glucose level is lowered and the beta cells start to function again they then can often revert to pills or lifestyle management.

Although remission can be achieved by standard medical means of lifestyle manipulation, many remissions are a consequence of gastric bypass surgery. These individuals often experience complete, or temporary (it can be for years), reversal of high glucose levels. It is the change in hormonal setting driven by the surgery that leads to improved glucose metabolism even before significant weight loss occurs.

Gastric bypass is a considered generally by those whose BMI and medical conditions put them at risk for serious health complications. For most people behavior modification (initially with or without medications) with lifestyle changes can help manage type 2 diabetes. Excess weight increases insulin resistance, so by shedding just 7 to 10 percent of bodyweight, the body’s cells will be better able to respond to the insulin.

The key to losing weight is finding a meal plan and an activity regimen that will best suit one’s lifestyle. The best meal plan is one that will help you to make healthy food choices that you can follow for a lifetime. Don’t worry -a meal plan isn’t a strict diet where you can no longer eat and enjoy your favorite foods-it’s all about giving you guidance to shape your eating pattern.

Through these significant lifestyle changes you could be well on your way to managing your diabetes. Don’t get discouraged if you slip back to your old habits – it is common for many people.

Diabetes and food cures

The ways to reserse metabolic acidosis which causes symptoms as diabetes, kidney failure, liver slug, autoimmunity, RA and Cancer is a metabolic issue in which the PH falls too low enabling co-infections and mycotoxins to gorw and mutate sugar which is the biggest cursory and will feed those mycotoxins as well.   Plant based vegetarian lifestyle ensures the body to remain in a proper PH state of 7, thus destroying the mutations at the cellular levels.

Consider diabetic meal planning to make the most of your food. Taking the time to plan and prepare meals in advance will help you save time and energy throughout the week and reduce the likelihood of snacking and unhealthy eating.

A diabetic should consume non-starchy vegetables as often as possible. Besides filling you up, they contain essential vitamins and minerals that regulate your blood sugar. You can eat as many non-starchy vegetables as you want without worrying about high blood sugar spikes because they’re whole foods with trace amounts of sugar and high levels of fiber. For the best results, choose non-starchy vegetables that don’t contain salt or sauce.  Example include:

Artichokes
Asparagus
Avocados
Broccoli
Cabbage
Cauliflower
Celery
Cucumbers
Green Beans
Hearts of Palm
Mushrooms
Olives
Onions
Squashes
Tomatoes
Zucchini
And more!

Leafy Greens – Many of the best leafy greens are considered non-starchy vegetables, but they deserve their own section. Leafy greens are packed full of nutrients and are lower in digestible carbs than other vegetables.3 This means that your blood sugar won’t raise very much regardless of how much you eat. Some of the best leafy greens to incorporate into your daily diet are spinach and kale, as they have very high levels of vitamin C.3 Vitamin C helps to manage diabetes in people with type 2 diabetes and can help promote an overall sense of wellbeing. Leafy greens also contain specific antioxidants that help to protect your eyes from diabetic complications.

Fatty Fish – Regardless of if you have diabetes or not, fatty fish should be part of your diet. It’s one of the healthiest foods that you can eat and has a myriad of benefits. Fatty fish like salmon and anchovies give you a significant serving of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, which can help protect your heart against potential complications from diabetes.3 DHA and EPA both protect your blood vessels, reduce inflammation, and improve the function of your arteries after consumption.3 Since your risk of heart disease and stroke are almost doubled if you have diabetes, incorporating fatty fish into your diet can reduce your chances of serious complications. Plus, fatty fish is an excellent source of protein that will help you feel full and manage your weight with ease.

Nuts and Eggs – Other fatty foods that help control diabetes and lower blood sugar are nuts and eggs. Nuts have high levels of fiber and most are low in digestible carbs, so they won’t raise your blood sugar.3 It is important to differentiate certain types of nuts, however, as some of them have very high levels of digestible carbs. The best types of nuts for diabetics include almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts.3 If you’re watching your weight, make sure to eat nuts in moderation. Even though they’re high in healthy fats, it’s still fat and shouldn’t be over-done. Eggs are also a great source of healthy fats that are beneficial in controlling diabetes. They can actually improve your insulin sensitivity and decrease inflammation while simultaneously providing antioxidant benefits that help reduce the number of free radicals in your body and protect against disease.3 If you incorporate eggs in your diet, make sure that you include the yolk as that’s where most of the nutrients are located.

Seeds – Certain types of seeds are known to control diabetes. The two best seeds to eat as a diabetic are chia seeds and flax seeds. Chia seeds are packed with fiber, low in digestible carbs, and have been found to actually lower your blood sugar levels.3 As a diabetic, this is extremely conducive to health management. Flaxseeds are also beneficial as they can help improve blood sugar control, decrease your risk of heart disease, and lower the chance of having a stroke.3 Since flaxseeds can be difficult to absorb, opt for ground seeds or make sure to take the time and grind them up at home before eating them. Ingesting whole flax seeds won’t give you any benefits.

Natural Fats – Extra-virgin olive oil has always been known to have a myriad of health benefits. It is one of the most effective oils for reducing the risk of heart disease and contains a number of antioxidants that help to reduce inflammation, protect your cells, and decrease blood pressure.3 Choose pure extra-virgin olive oil to get all of the health benefits and sprinkle it on salads, use it in a marinade, or cook meats and vegetables with it. Other natural fats that are helpful at controlling diabetes include coconut oil, avocado oil, any type of nut oil, lard, tallow, chicken fat, duck fat, coconut milk, and unsweetened coconut cream.

There is a good reason why apple cider vinegar is popular among health food fans. The fermented acetic acid helps to improve insulin sensitivity, lower fasting blood sugar levels, and reduce blood sugar response by as much as 20% when paired with meals that are rich in carbs.3 Due to the high acidity of apple cider vinegar, it’s best taken by the tablespoon mixed with water to avoid damaging your teeth and esophagus. Start slowly, with about one teaspoon, and work your way up based on how you feel.

When it comes to controlling diabetes, cinnamon and turmeric spices are powerful tools. To get the best results from cinnamon and turmeric, both should be included in your diet daily. Food and drinks can be made more flavorful with cinnamon by adding it to them. Turmeric lowers inflammation, and blood sugar levels reduces your risk of developing heart disease, and benefits kidney health.3 Make sure you mix the turmeric with black pepper so the beneficial ingredient curcumin is activated.

Be sure that any dairy products you add to your diet are packed with healthy probiotics for the best health benefits. Since Greek yogurt is low in sugar and high in probiotics, it’s a great option. Several studies have found Greek yogurt to improve blood sugar control and even reduce heart disease risks.3 Avoid flavored Greek yogurt since it contains more sugar and is processed more, so it may contribute to an increase in blood sugar levels.

It’s strawberry season!

If you’re looking for something sweet, try snacking on a cup of strawberries. Strawberries are loaded with antioxidants and have been shown to reduce both cholesterol and insulin levels after a meal.3 If you’re not a fan of strawberries and want to incorporate daily fruit into your diet, opt for raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries, which tend to have lower sugar content than other fruits like apples and bananas.

Conclusion

You can still eat your favorite foods if you have diabetes, but you need to monitor your blood glucose levels. You can indulge a little every now and then by incorporating these 10 foods into your daily diet.
