Diabetes is an epidemic affecting more than 29 million Americans. In addition, there are over 86 million people who have been diagnosed with Pre-Diabetes, meaning it is only a matter of time before they will be diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and put on a medication for the rest of their lives. Most people do not have a correct understanding of Diabetes and it’s devastating affects. It is a disease of insulin (the hormone that regulates blood sugar and leptin (known as the “hunger” hormone) signaling. It is not a disease of blood sugar, which is why conventional treatment does not seem to be stemming the tide of this epidemic or curing the resulting complications. Medications are NOT the answer for reversing Type 2 Diabetes; restoring sensitivity to insulin and leptin is what’s needed.
Signs you may be Pre-Diabetic or Diabetic
You could be experiencing Pre-Diabetes or Diabetes if you experience unusual weight gain, excessive thirst, blurred vision, frequent infections, extreme hunger even after eating, irritability, blood sugar handling issues, chronic fatigue, low or high blood pressure and numbness and tingling in hands and feet.
There are two types of diabetes
Type 1 Diabetes
In Type 1 Diabetes, your body’s own immune system destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas, resulting in a complete deficiency of the hormone insulin. This deficiency of insulin is why Type 1 is called “insulin-dependent”—because more often than not, Type 1 Diabetics must give themselves supplemental insulin.
Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 Diabetes is the more common form of the disease by far, affecting 90 to 95 percent of diabetics, and is completely preventable and nearly 100% curable. If you have Type 2, your body is producing some insulin but is unable to recognize and use it properly. This is an advanced stage of insulin resistance. Since your insulin is inadequate, sugar is unable get into your cells and instead builds up in your blood, causing a variety of problems. This is why diabetics have elevated blood sugar levels.
I was told by my doctor that all I could do was “control” my Diabetes. Is there a way to cure it?
Yes! Not only is Type 2 Diabetes 100% preventable but in most cases it is also 100% curable. At Genesis Health Solutions we have great success in reversing Type 2 Diabetes, because we address the underlying causes and do not treat the disease.
How does Diabetes affect my body even if I am taking a medication?
What most diabetics don’t realize is that even though they are taking a medication, the medication will not protect them from suffering the collateral damage that comes along with a Diabetes diagnosis.
Diabetics will still suffer many of the following complications even while taking medication:
• 68% develop Heart Disease
• 50% of all new cases of blindness occur in diabetics on medication
• 60% of all amputations occur in diabetics on medication
• 70% develop neuropathy
• 30% develop diabetic retinopathy
• 50% develop thyroid problems
• On average-reduces YOUR life by 8.5 years
• 2-fold increase in Dementia
Even on medication I am unable to keep my blood glucose stable, why?
The nutrition plans recommended by most doctors and even the American Diabetes Association allow too much sugar and foods that break down into sugar once consumed, which is a big problem. In addition, many of the “allowable” foods are devoid of vital nutrients and contain many toxic ingredients. At the cellular level, these factors continue to cause damage to cell membranes, insulin receptors and leptin receptors preventing them from healing. At Genesis Health Solutions we utilize specialized protocols that balance glucose metabolism and allow healing to take place at the cellular level. As a result, patients experience stabilization of their blood glucose levels very quickly. Call us today at 434-316-0001 to see how we can help you get your life back!
