In this video the speaker John G. Clark M.D goes through the causes of diabetes. The very best method to beat a way of life illness such as diabetes you need to stop exactly what is causing it and use up practices that promote health.
I would also suggest another natural treatments specialist, Agatha Thrash MD, she too promotes the use of diet plan in treating diabetes. Dr Agatha Thrash of Uchee Pines Institute states, "for over 70 years, conventional treatment for diabetes was a high fat, low carbohydrate diet plan with insulin by injection, or tablets by mouth. Justification for prescribing the high fat diet plan was that it keeps the blood sugar level from increasing excessive after a meal, and it avoids too much sugar from spilling into the urine. But the drawbacks of fatty diet plans far outweigh the advantages. This type of diet plan does not decrease blood sugar, nor the insulin requirement to handle the excess sugar. In fact, it has the tendency to make the body less conscious insulin and induces resistance to it. Elevation of blood fats leads to hardening of the arteries. It promotes the accumulation of ketone bodies in the body tissue and fluids, and accelerates aging."
Other diet plans that have actually been utilized to manage diabetes are high protein, high carbohydrate and high fiber diets. Protein diets appear to prevent a significant increase in blood sugar level, however are "not practical, monotonous, costly, promote kidney and liver failure and hardening of the arteries, and are typically high in fat," hence not advised.
Fine-tuned carbohydrate diet plans (sugar, white flour, white rice, etc.) are quickly absorbed, elevating the blood glucose after meals, as well as increasing triglycerides. Such a diet plan is a hinderance in treating diabetes, and is no treatment at all. Nevertheless, when complex carbs– entire grain bread and cereals, brown rice, bran, fruit, vegetables and no refined sugar– compose most of the meal, the downsides of a high carbohydrate diet vanish. The body better utilizes the carbohydrate and glucose in the food. When mildly diabetic individuals change from 45% fine-tuned carbohydrates to 85% complicated carbohydrates, their glucose tolerance test improves.
Most Americans on a high meat diet plan eat in between 14 and 20 grams of plant fiber every day. The perfect vegetarian diet plan provides 65-70 grams. Insulin needs to link on one side with sugar (glucose), and the other side should slide into insulin "docking sites" (receptors) on cells. For sugar to be appropriately used, the docking websites should be filled with insulin. Here is another benefit of a high fiber diet plan– the fiber increases the number of docking websites. Overweight people have less insulin receptors, hence fewer sites for sugar-hooked insulin to slide into. Fasting for numerous days, up until the blood sugar go back to normal, multiplies insulin docking sites. This typically takes 3 to five days, and must be done just in type II (or "adult start") diabetics. Type I diabetics need to never fast. If the person is overweight, fasting for a day or 2 a week, non-consecutively, can be really helpful for diabetic control.
In addition to decreasing the fast rise of blood sugar level after a meal and increasing the number of insulin docking websites on cells, a high fiber diet plan reduces blood fats, helping to bring cholesterol from the body. It keeps the blood sugar at a lower level than a fiber-free meal. Triglycerides (blood fats) and cholesterol are also reduced, hence reducing the threat of coronary cardiac arrest.
Exercise in addition to the diet is very important and can not be overstated. Exercise boosts the sensitivity of the tissues to insulin, increasing the number of insulin receptors. It helps reduce body fat, thus making individuals more sensitive to insulin.
Dr Agatha Thrash more states that, "We have actually discovered for many years that an overall vegetarian diet plan, high in fiber and the unrefined carbohydrates, low in fats; paired with a regular exercise program; and weight control is the best to manage diabetes and to prevent the severe complications of this illness. By far the majority of individuals remain on the program. They take pleasure in the food, for it is palatable, useful and appealing. The whole household can benefit from eating this food. Most of those who remain on the program never have to take pills or insulin again.
