Beating Diabetes Part I

I am assuming that you already know about this illness and maybe be suffering from it, so there is no need to explain what is diabetes, what causes it, etc. It’s unfortunate you have diabetes, but there is hope for you. In this series I will cover different methods of treatment, what foods to eat and to avoid, exercise tips to suit your age, and finally, certain health supplements to add to your diet.

Let’s face it! Our life style in the developed world is causing us to become obese and flabby with all kinds of illnesses like diabetes and heart ailments. The hi-carbs and fatty foods are mainly to blame, and we simply do not exercise enough. We drive around short distances instead of walking. We eat at the fast food restaurants selling us food loaded with sugars, salt, carbs and artery plugging fat.


You can do something about it, if you put your mind to it. It’s all about what you eat. You know the old adage, “You are what you eat!” It has been said that the big pharmaceutical companies and doctors are only treating the symptoms of Diabetes and not the cure. Maybe, they don’t really care about the cure, because there is a lot of money being made selling you medicine and professional advice. Who knows?

The important issue is what can be done about it. In fact type 2 diabetes can be reversed with proper diet, supplements and exercise. I know, because I had type 2 diabetes a couple of times in my life. The first time, it was caused by stress. As soon as I was diagnosed with diabetes, I immediately stop taking any sugar. I almost took it to zero tolerance. I kept testing myself daily for a few weeks, and to my surprise, my sugar level became normal. The second time I got Type 2 diabetes was rather recently like two years ago. At that time, I was consuming too much alcohol and having a bad diet. My doctor put me on Glurenorm to treat it. It seemed to have made me feel worst, because I began to experience low blood sugar level, if I went without eating for some time. This made me feel faint and even had a couple of instances of fainting.

I reduced the intake of alcoholic beverages and exercised more. I gradually began to feel better, so I gradually took myself of this medication until I was completely free from this drug. I was careful about what I ate, so now I feel that I have beaten the unsought of diabetes.

In my next post, I will describe which foods and supplements you can take to reduce the symptoms of diabetes, and maybe, reverse your diabetes type 2.
