Blood sugar or glucose is the main sugar in our blood, and we get it from the food we eat and it is our main source of energy. Glucose is then transported by the blood to the cells of our body and converted into energy. Diabetes is a disease in which blood sugar levels are high, which happens for two reasons:
- The body does not produce enough insulin – a hormone that regulates the movement of blood sugar into cells;
- Cells react poorly to insulin and do not absorb sugar properly. This is known as insulin resistance.
This causes too much sugar to circulate in our bloodstream, the sugar accumulates over time and its level becomes high. Once our levels rise above a certain threshold (this can be revealed by a blood test), we are classified as having Type 2 diabetes.
There are 462 million people in the world with Type 2 diabetes and there are no signs that the number will decrease.
Some symptoms of Type 2 diabetes include:
- Increased hunger
- Increased thirst
- Frequent urination
- Blurred vision
- Frequent infections
- Skin rush and itchiness
- Slow-healing sores
- Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet
Type 2 diabetes is often associated with being overweight or sedentary. For diabetics, losing weight can be an additional challenge, because they feel hungry and tired so they want more food and don’t want to exercise.
Many of these people receive prescription medications that help them keep their blood sugar levels under control. In this way, they treat symptoms of the disease, but do not eliminate the root of the problem.
So what is it we can do to prevent or help with diabetes?
1. Change our lifestyle
We must first think about our life, our health, how our condition affects ourselves, and what impact it has on our family. Also, we have to be honest with ourselves. We need to become aware of the quality of the food we eat, our priorities, our physical activities, and the perspectives of our current lifestyle.
Ask yourself questions like:
- Is that really what I am?
- Does this situation make me happy?
- Do I really want to suffer and make my family suffer?
- Is there anything that I can change?
When you become fully aware of your situation and that YOU are responsible for your reality and that YOU are the person capable of healing your body and your reality – all you have to do is to make the first step. A tiny little step at a time.
Our advice is to start with a walk in the park – a short walk at the beginning and gradually extend it over time. Breathe and be present in every step you take. Listen to the nature around you and listen to your body.
When you come home, drink a glass of filtered water and praise yourself for the effort you put in. Have a nice apple instead of chips or pizza and listen to your body. Even if you crave food, you will still feel that inner satisfaction that you have done something good for your body.
Don’t forget to praise yourself for each effort you put into healing. And love yourself. Love yourself for who you are, because you are beautiful, you are powerful and you are able to make changes.
Take supplements that combine natural ingredients that promote healthy blood sugar levels. There are really good supplements that contain natural ingredients that not only promote healthy blood sugar levels but also improve sleep, promote healthy weight loss, cleanse the body of toxins, and improve energy levels and overall health. These ingredients include Gymnema Sylvestre, Biotin, Chromium, Manganese, Licorice Root, Cinnamon, and Juniper Berries.
