After Battling Type 2 Diabetes, My Lab Results Improved Dramatically in Just Six Weeks

I never had a weight problem until I turned 20 and put on a few extra pounds. I then dieted for the next 33 years of my life. I was on the cabbage diet, celery diet, boiled egg diet, toast diet, SlimFast diet, and many others through the years. I mostly just starved myself.
In 2010, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. My cardiologist put me on high blood pressure medicine, which I hated. I worked out harder, quit smoking, and was able to get off the medicine in one year. For the next five years, I worked out with a personal trainer and followed the recommended “heart healthy” diet.
In 2015, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I was totally bummed. My numbers were off the charts (in a bad way) and my eyesight was blurry. I hadn’t had much success with the “heart healthy” diet and now had to combine it with the “diabetic diet,” which I found very limiting and frustrating. I started taking Metformin, which is a diabetes medication. Before she passed, my mother had been on Metformin, followed the “diabetic diet,” and still had to shoot up with insulin everyday for 30 years. I didn’t want to live that way.
Feeling discouraged and defeated, I ran across the Forks Over Knives documentary. Knowing I had nothing to lose, I watched it. I’m so glad, because it changed my life forever. Finally, I felt like I had found all the answers to my health issues. Watching it was like seeing a long lost friend and being wrapped in a great, big hug—it was familiar, hopeful, and long overdue.

Yes, you will all agree, these studies proved that bitter melon kills cancer cells on a dish. The question is: Will it cure people? Will it be effective with animals? Apparently yes. The researchers at the University of Colorado tested bitter melon’s effect on mice and the results were incredible 64% reduction in the size of the pancreatic tumor. Even more, there were literally no side-effects.
The dose they used was about six grams of powder for an average human. Studies have shown that bitter melon can also help diabetics. Do you need an explanation? Well, bitter melon can improve any metabolic problems due to its beneficial effect on the glucose metabolism.

The Natural Way to Treat Diabetes

The Natural Way to Treat Diabetes

Diabetes is a medical condition, where, quite simply, your body isn’t processing sugar effectively. And since sugar (in its various forms) are what makes your body tick, your body can develop a host of symptoms and sub-conditions that willmake your body deteriorate to the point that you can actually die from one of theside-effects of unchecked diabetes.
Even though there are drugs these days that can check most forms of adult-onset diabetes (otherwise known as Type-2 diabetes, which is the more “popular form”), If you want to avoid using drugs as much as possible, you do have another choice: minimizing or even getting rid of themedication you need, through proper diet and exercise.
What you eat
Many people think that eating right is the easier way to control diabetes without resorting to medicine, and they are partially right on that score. The reason for this is that we now have many food options that allow people with diabetes to eat relatively normal food that just happens to be either sugar-free, or have as little sugar as possible.
However, the fact is, no matter how little sugar there is in the food that you eat, you still have to consider what you’re eating, and how much of it you are eating. In general, it’s a good idea to stick to a diet that has more vegetables in it, with less carbohydrates and sugary food. You should purchase a book or chart that can help you count calories per serving of a particular type of food. That way, you can control how much and what you eat, so you can lower your blood sugar levels. Depending on the person, a proper diet may b Continue reading

The Major Role Soybean Oil Plays in Obesity and Diabetes Hot

The Major Role Soybean Oil Plays in Obesity and Diabetes Hot

Soybean oil is the most common oil used in the US, but this is a relatively new phenomenon. Prior to 1900, cooking was done with lard and butter, and the processed foods that are now primary sources of soybean oil (and other soy ingredients) were nonexistent.
In the 1950s, saturated fats were condemned on the basis of them raising your cholesterol and causing heart disease – a theory that has since been proven wrong, but which is still lingering in medical offices and public nutrition regulations.
Partially hydrogenated soybean oil was developed to replace saturated fats like butter and lard in the food supply. Not only did consumers embrace it, but food manufacturers did even more so because of its low cost, long shelf-life, and stability at room temperature.
There was just one problem: partially hydrogenated oils are sources of trans fats, which are now known to cause chronic health problems such as obesity, asthma, auto-immune disease, cancer, and bone degeneration.
Yet, even if you take the hydrogenation process out of the picture, soybean oil is still detrimental to your health. While trans fats are now being pulled out of processed foods due to their extreme health risks, soybean oil is still fair game… but it shouldn't be – and here's why.
Soybean Oil Causes Obesity and Diabetes – Coconut Oil Does Not
Researchers recently designed a series of four diets to investigate the effects of saturated fats (coconut oil) versus unsaturated fat (soybean oil) as well as fructose on obesity and diabetes.1
Their results show just how very backward most nutritional advice i Continue reading
