According to The World Health Organization, at least 171 million people worldwide have diabetes, and this figure is likely to more than double by 2030. Around 3.2 million deaths every year are attributable to complications of diabetes; that is six deaths every minute! Many do not realize that diabetes is largely a self-inflicted disease and can, therefore, be controlled naturally -- and in the case of Type II Diabetes, even be reversed. Below is a list of resources to help you understand the natural alternatives for regulating diabetes safely.
1. The Nature of Diabetes -- It's Echo Effect
Type 2 diabetes is not like any other disease. Most diseases such as cancer and MS are linear. In other words, you get the disease and it progresses in a straight line, from point A to point B. It may have regressions and remissions in which it backs up on its linear path for a bit, but then it picks up steam and once again proceeds on down the same track to its ultimate conclusion. Diabetes does not do that. Diabetes actually follows multiple, mutually reinforcing paths -- an echo effect if you will, with each echo reinforcing and amplifying all the other echoes, or "effects". This distinction is of vital importance because it mandates multiple points of intervention if you wish to reverse diabetes and not just slow its progression.
2. Natural Alternatives to Regulating Blood Sugar Metabolism
Once you begin to explore the world of herbs and supplements that relate to metabolizing blood sugar, you soon discover that there are literally dozens and dozens of them. The trick is in identifying which ones are most efficacious – and how they work in combination. If done correctly, these nutraceuticals don't just reinforce each other's benefits, they actually amplify them.
3. Diabetes Myths and other Fatal Mistakes
Forcing blood sugar levels down with medications does nothing to relieve the underlying diabetic condition. It merely suppresses just one of its manifestations. If you want to prevent and reverse diabetes, you have to reduce sugar intake, reduce insulin resistance, improve beta cell function in the pancreas, and protect and repair insulin/sugar damage to mission critical organs in the body. And you have to do all of these things all at once. Since diabetes is not a single straight-line progression disease, you need to stop every single "echo" simultaneously so that no aspect of the disease can reverberate and start the whole process moving downhill again. You need to stop it all or it will all start again.
