Understanding the Link Between Diabetes and Alzheimer’s

Health is always at the forefront of your mind if you have diabetes. Watching your diet, exercising, and monitoring your body is second nature. While these activities are vital for staying healthy, a new study has shown us another reason to stay on top of your health. It turns out that blood sugar and glucose levels have a correlation to brain health and ailments such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. In a study published by the Annals of Internal Medicine, it was found that those with diabetes had a 19% decline in cognitive function over a 20 year period. Those with pre-diabetes also showed the same degeneration.
The study doesn’t just map diabetics either. It found that people with poor control over their blood sugar had a decrease in neuroplasticity, meaning that people who are not cognizant of their diet and sugar intake also see a steep decline in mental ability compared to those that control their blood sugar. Diabetics that do not control their diabetes, either through not being diagnosed or through poor management, had the steepest decline over the time of the study.
What this information shows is just how important it is for diabetics to manage not only their physical health, but their mental acuity as well. Nutrition, physical and mental exercise, and stress management are 4 of the most effective ways the study found to help prevent brain degradation. While the correlation seems bleak, the information provided could help millions protect themselves from incredible hardship later in life. Continue reading

Kris Jenner Says Rob Kardashian Wants to Return to KUWTK Following Diabetes Diagnosis: ''He Just Wants to Feel Good''

Kris Jenner Says Rob Kardashian Wants to Return to KUWTK Following Diabetes Diagnosis: ''He Just Wants to Feel Good''

Kris Jenner is giving an update on son Rob Kardashian's health.
While chatting with Maria Shriver during last night's Architects of Change: The Conversation Series event, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch opened up about Rob following his recent hospitalization and diabetes diagnosis.
"He's had a year where he kind of wanted to chill. He hasn't been feeling well, we didn't know why. He was just diagnosed with diabetes, so we're taking care of that," Kris said, adding that Rob is very much a part of everyday family life despite his absence from their hit TV show. "But he's always around. I see Rob every day."
"I think Rob enjoys all the family stuff we do. He has his business, his sock line and his stuff. But I think that it was just the perfect time for him to take like a little hiatus," Kris added. "We said, ‘Just get well. Feel better.' He was depressed and just wasn't feeling good and didn't know why."
"But you didn't think about stopping [the show] because of that?" Shriver asked.
"No, because we see him, he's with us all the time," Kris responded.
"But he's not on the show?" Shriver added.
"No," Jenner said. "He wants to still come back and shoot the show, he just wants to feel good. It's not that he doesn't want to be on the show, it's just he wasn't feeling good."

This Remedy Can Cure AIDS, HIV, Diabetes, Stroke, Cancer, SDs, Arthritis…

Did you hear of black cumin oil? Well read on more. Studies revealed that nigelia sativa/black cumin seed oil can stop cancer cells.
Extract of this seed named thymoquinone can cure cancer.
This item can cure breast, colon, liver, cervix, lymphoma, melanoma, prostate cancer and more.
Studies were made on animals for now so it is matter of time for human studies too.
These things make this oil potent so large pharma companies are reluctant yet to explore this fully.
In 2 separate studies from 2 countries, China and Saudi Arabia in 2011, was said this oil treats cancer, diabetes, asthma, kidney issues and more.
It is not clear how this is done for cancer, but studies go on.
Perfect mix with black cumin seed oil and honey
Egyptian study said this oil and honey kills cancer and this was seen in lab rats that got heavy doses of a carcinogen.
The study had 4 rat groups.
Given honey and black seed oil
Rest 3 groups had either of the 2 items
The 1st group had less cancer risk by 100%
The rest of groups had decrease of 80%
No radiation problem with black cumin seed oil
Back in 2014, Turkey experts said this oil gives relief to those radiated from curing for cancer.
Tests were done on rats that had gamma radiation and were divided in 2 groups.
The 1st had 1 g black seed oil 60 min prior radiation
Total were given 10 g for the following 10 days radiation.
The 2nd group rats had no radiation and had just saline mix.
The seed oil decreased oxidation stress.
The antioxidants made liver healthier.
Another result is that black seed oil 10 days prior radiation for 10 days made rats safe aga Continue reading

Rockstar Opens Up About His Struggle With Type 1 Diabetes and Daughter’s Recent Diagnosis

Rockstar Opens Up About His Struggle With Type 1 Diabetes and Daughter’s Recent Diagnosis

Diabetes is a condition that has to be managed 24/7. It, unfortunately, doesn’t take breaks, and it doesn’t rest. Because of that, it’s not uncommon to find yourself needing to address the demands of management at what might be a less than opportune moment.
And it happens to everyone.
On a commercial break during an appearance on the Piers Morgan show, Poison frontman, Bret Michaels, suddenly felt weak and called for his diabetic kit. When the show returned, Michaels took the time to explain his journey with diabetes, having been diagnosed Type 1 at 6 years-old. He even goes so far as to perform a blood test on-air, and explain the process!
While testing his blood, Michaels explains to the host what it means to get a high or low reading and how both can affect an individual. The rocker even gets personal and describes what lessons he’s learned form a lifelong struggle with this disease, as well as some tips and tricks he’s picked up along the way.
Although Bret’s daughter has tested positive for pre-diabetes, he stays positive despite his fears and continues to work to raise money — and hope — for the cause. We love when a celebrity uses their fame to spread awareness!
Check out his inspiring story in the video below. Continue reading

The diet that starves cancer and reverses diabetes

The diet that starves cancer and reverses diabetes

Contrary to popular belief, no or low fat diet isn’t that good for you. Recently, some conventional cardiologists have stated that one needs healthy fats in order to maintain good cardiovascular health.
They have negated the myth of cholesterol as the major cause of clogged arteries and heart attacks. They also warned about the dangers associated with statin drugs, drugs used to lower cholesterol levels in the body. The truth is that brain and nervous system tissue require cholesterol and similar fats to rebuild and maintain proper function. It is worth mentioning that studies found higher rate of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, in statin users.
Skin cholesterol initiates the conversion process of UVB sunlight exposure to vitamin D3 in the liver. Without the presence of cholesterol, there is not conversion, meaning insufficient vitamin D3 levels.
Recent research suggests that following a high fat diet can reverse aggressive cancers. Of course, don’t expect the cancer industry to reveal these facts. They need to receive funding to study patentable drugs which don’t actually cure, but rather keep killing with surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
The high fat ketogenic diet – tried and true
The best anecdotal cancer reversal regarding this diet involves Dr. Fred Hatfield, a former world power lifting champion, trainer, and successful business owner. The reason for his doctor title is the fact that he completed graduate studies in kinesiology.
Dr. Hatfield was diagnosed with an aggressive, metastatic skeletal cancer. He was given only three months left to live, and Continue reading
