Sad, So Sad
The other day I was talking to someone that I know from the community and his situation made me very sad.
Not because of health conditions or the struggles he was having physically, but because of the things his medication was doing to him.
The Vicious Cycle
When I first started talking to this individual we would talk about our Diabetes and what we are doing to manage our glucose levels. He had been a Diabetic for some time and had struggled with getting his glucose levels under control for years. We talked a lot about eating right, getting exercise, and getting our thinking in the right place.
Unfortunately, this individual’s plans also included medications that he would take to compensate for the changes he wasn’t willing to make in his lifestyle.
Over time, I have watched as one medication caused a side effect, that he would then need to take another medication, which then caused another side effect, that he would then need to take another medication, which then caused another side effect. This is the vicious side effect.
Our bodies are super resilient machines. We can heal ourselves from all kinds of sicknesses and ailments.
Our bodies can’t cure everything, but a lot of what we experience can be cured by what we eat or our activity levels.
Fortunately, for Type II Diabetics, our bodies can be healed and it can still reverse the effects of our Type II Diabetes.
Even better our bodies can do this without medication; but, this means that we have to treat our bodies correctly and make some lifestyle changes.
Type II Diabetes Reversal
To reverse the effects of Type II Diabetes, we need to help our pancreas and its insulin production catch up to our glucose levels in the blood stream.
Between the simple sugars that we eat and the carbohydrates that our liver converts to sugars, we have to find the balance between what our pancreas can handle and the amount of glucose in our system.
To do this, you must first get a handle on three things:
1. What are your glucose levels?
2. How does what you do affect your glucose levels?
3. What t can you do to control your glucose levels?
Every Type II Diabetes is different.
For example, I know that Stevia makes my glucose levels rise, even though this is an artificial sweetener, but MonkFruit sweetener like Whole Earth will not make my glucose go up. This is not the same for everyone. The only way I found this out was by testing, trying, testing, trying. Even exercise is a trial and measure activity. Just as another example, even if I exercise for an hour, my glucose levels will not drop for almost 2 hours after my exercise is done. The drop is not as quick as I have heard from others.
Rinse and Repeat
Once you try and measure you will begin to see what brings your glucose levels down, then you can rinse and repeat these activities over and over.
By lowering your glucose levels you are helping your pancreas keep up with insulin production. You must monitor this all the time and keep a close log, especially if you are still taking medication. The medication will be artificially helping, so you need to monitor, monitor, monitor.
