7 Effective Steps to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have “pre-diabetes” in which blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. People diagnosed as pre-diabetic should take it seriously and see it as a wake-up call for a change. This doesn’t necessarily mean that these people will get diabetes since they have the time and possibility to correct their habits, and early treatment can actually return blood glucose levels to the normal range. But getting rid of unhealthy habits and developing healthier habits is your first action to improve your health.
Being diagnosed as pre-diabetes is actually an opportunity to initiate lifestyle changes to help prevent diabetes. Here are seven preliminary and essential steps that are a good way to start improving your health and reduce the risk of developing diabetes:
1. Be physically active
Being more physically active is one of the important and beat changes that you should do to reduce the risk or even prevent type 2 diabetes. If it’s been a long time since the last time you’ve practiced, start gradually: replace the elevator with the stairs, do stretching while watching TV and so on.
Exercise is an integral part of the treatment plan for pre-diabetics because it lowers blood sugar levels and reduces body fat. Ideal training program should be held five times a week, 30 minutes each time. If you can’t set aside that much time at once, remember that shorter bursts of activity count too. Incorporating physical activities into your daily life is also one of the 70 habit Continue reading

PrintWhat People with Diabetes Need to Know Before Using Isagenix

Would you like to try a Cleansing and Fat Burning System with Isagenix but are concerned because you have diabetes? Worry no more, because yes, Isagenix can still be for you—you may just need to tailor the experience to your own personal health needs.
The first step you need to take is to talk with your physician or other health-care professional to be sure they approve and that your individual needs can be met. Cleansing is best done under medical supervision, but can definitely bring results and better health for anyone, including people with diabetes. Recently, we sat down with Dennis Harper, DO, and Chair of the Isagenix Science Advisory Board to ask some questions and learn from his expertise.
Q: Dr. Harper, what would you say is the most important factor that people with diabetes need to be aware of with an Isagenix Cleansing and Fat Burning System?
Dr Harper: Blood glucose levels, most definitely. Since diabetes involves above-normal blood glucose levels, this needs to be monitored closely and may cause a patient to have to alter an Isagenix system to their individual needs. Cleanse Days may cause blood glucose levels to dip too low while Shake Days may cause levels to rise. The main goal is to stay on top of monitoring blood glucose levels so they don’t rise too high or crash too low.
Q: What are your specific recommendations for Cleanse Days?
Dr. Harper: Cleansing means consuming barely any calories, so there is potential for blood sugar levels to fall. The goal is to not let it get too low, as in below 75 since this can cause a hypoglycemic state and can be da Continue reading

This Simple Oil Protects Kidneys, Fights Diabetes And Is A Great Aphrodisiac

Cinnamon is a sweet spice relished all over the world and is one of the most versatile essential oils. Cinnamon essential oil has a sweet, pervading aroma which is very soothing, and a plethora of health benefits and healing properties.
Homemade Cinnamon Oil
Method
Items you will need: cinnamon sticks, a glass jar, preferably amber or green with a wide mouth and straight sides (for ease in straining out the substances), and olive oil.
Steps:
1 – Get enough cinnamon sticks and stuff them inside the glass jar. Fill up all the empty spaces if possible.
2 – Pour the olive oil inside the jar until all of the cinnamon sticks are entirely covered.
3 – Place the glass jar in a warm place such as your window. Secure it so it won’t topple over. Leave the jar for about three weeks.
4 – Shake the jar daily. This will release the cinnamon oil from the base oil.
5 – After three weeks, the oil from the cinnamon sticks will be completely released and will be formed as cinnamon oil. Using a piece of cheese cloth or similar material, strain the cinnamon oil. You can also use your fingers to pull out the cinnamon oil from the sticks.
6 – Put the cinnamon oil in an amber bottle and store it in a cool, dry place.

The aloe vera miracle: A natural medicine for cancer, cholesterol, diabetes, inflammation, IBS, and other health conditions

The aloe vera miracle: A natural medicine for cancer, cholesterol, diabetes, inflammation, IBS, and other health conditions

I'm truly excited to be bringing you this information today about the miraculous healing abilities of aloe vera. First off, in case you don't know, let me emphasize that I don't sell aloe vera products of any kind, I haven't been paid to write this article, and I don't earn any commissions from the sale of any products mentioned here. I am, however, an enthusiastic supporter of natural medicine, and I personally grow and eat aloe vera plants in Tucson, Arizona.
In fact, my yard is an aloe farm, and each day before I make my superfood breakfast smoothie, I walk out to my yard, slice off an aloe vera leaf, thank the plant for granting me its healing medicine, then I fillet the leaf and drop the aloe vera gel into my blender. A few minutes later, I'm enjoying the most impressive medicinal herb that nature has ever created. (Click here to see the new PhotoTour showing step-by-step pictures of how to fillet aloe vera and remove the inner gel.)
When I say aloe vera is the most impressive medicinal herb invented by nature, I don't make that statement lightly. Of all the herbs I've ever studied -- and I've written thousands of articles on nutrition and disease prevention -- aloe vera is the most impressive herb of them all. (Garlic would be a close second.) There is nothing on this planet that offers the amazing variety of healing benefits granted by aloe vera. In a single plant, aloe vera offers potent, natural medicine that:
• Halts the growth of cancer tumors.
• Lowers high cholesterol.
• Repairs "sludge blood" and reverses "sticky blood".
• Boosts the oxygenation of you Continue reading

Losing Just 1 Gram of Fat in The Pancreas Can Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

Losing Just 1 Gram of Fat in The Pancreas Can Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

Losing a single gram of fat could be enough to reverse the symptoms of type 2 diabetes – as long as that fat comes from the pancreas, researchers in the UK have shown.
It's already known that weight loss can greatly help manage type 2 diabetes – a progressive condition where the body either stops being able to produce enough insulin, or becomes insensitive to it – but this is the first time that researchers have shown the exact type of weight loss that's needed to get the condition under control.
The study followed 18 obese participants with type 2 diabetes both before and after gastric bypass surgery. Using a super sensitive MRI scan, the researchers revealed that the diabetics had abnormally high levels of fat built up in their pancreas – the insulin-producing organ – even when compared to other obese people without type 2 diabetes.
But the surgery helped them to burn off that fat, restoring their insulin levels to normal and allowing them to come off their medication.
The results suggest that excess fat in the pancreas is specific to type 2 diabetes, and is somehow clogging up the normal release of insulin.
"When that excess fat is removed, insulin secretion increases to normal levels," a Newcastle University press release explains. "In other words, they were diabetes free."
It's a pretty incredible discovery, but unfortunately it's not as simple as just losing a little bit of weight and choosing where it comes from.
"If you ask how much weight you need to lose to make your diabetes go away, the answer is 1 gram! But that gram needs to be fat from the pancreas, Continue reading
