I noticed in the mid 1990’s that I began to have increased thirst and need to go to the bathroom. I had been drinking too much soda especially orange flavored drink. I had no clue at the time, that this may be a sign of high glucose or diabetes. I knew something was up with my body but I was not sure what was going on until I read a book about low carbohydrate eating.
Diabetes is a condition where the pancreas does not release enough insulin, or the pancreas produces insulin that does not function as it should. The presence of too much glucose in the blood stream causes the kidneys to react by trying to expel the excess glucose. Why do we call diabetes the sticky illness? If you have ever put sugar on your hand and got it wet you know what happens right? It becomes sticky.
Furthermore, imagine making candy or fudge. The sugar melts with extreme heat and hardens when cooled. The hardening of sugar is just like what happens in our blood stream when there is too much sugar. Our blood becomes sticky. Modern medicine has warned that too much fat in a diet is the cause of obesity and disease. It is my opinion that sugar in foods is the most deadly weapon in the arsenal of ill health.
There are many steps you can take to reduce glucose in your blood which may prevent medical intervention. If you do have diabetes or symptoms, please do consult your doctor. First, go out and by a cheap glucose monitor and just see if your levels are normal. This is the first step to the awareness of what your body is doing.
Eating sugar increases your glucose. I know that may seem a bit simple, but it is true. If you eat sugar your blood glucose increases. Therefore the first step in healing yourself with natural remedies, is to stop eating anything with pure sugar in it like cake, candy and sweet soda. Also step eating bread, pasta and rice. Even stop eating fruit until your pancreas has a rest.
By removing carbohydrate rich foods from your diet you give your pancreas time to rest and rejuvenate. You also give your kidneys time to clear out toxins from having too much sugar in your body. As obvious as it may seem, sugar makes sugar.
Diabetes is often the result in an imbalance of minerals in your body. A daily multi-vitamin can replace nutrients your body needs and is certainly lacking. Chromium is also a mineral which has been known to lower blood sugar levels.
Finally, water and walking are the two friends you must make. Drink 1/2 your body weight in PURE water, not Kool-Aid or Gatorade. Water is electric and is from source. From a Spiritual standpoint, water is like GOD. It is the conduit between you and the best health you can imagine.
Meditation can help with releasing stress that causes the body to become a beaver dam, so take some time today to feel and listen to your body. Increased thirst and need to urinate are two signs that you may be diabetic.
