The growing threat of conventional diabetes treatments

(NaturalHealth365) As many as 25.8 million people in the United States have diabetes, according to a 2011 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes both the diagnosed and undiagnosed cases. Blood sugar imbalances create stress on the heart, kidneys and emotional well-being – to name just a few of the health problems. If you have diabetes – please keep reading.

Diabetes is a growing epidemic

With no end in sight – it is estimated that one out of every three United States adults will have diabetes in the near future. In 2007, the CDC estimates that the direct medical cost associated with diabetes was approximately $116 billion. But, throwing more money at diabetes is NOT the answer.

Naturally, business trade magazines simply say, “retailers are in a prime position to save Americans money on managing diabetes by offering store brand products and in return will profit vastly if diabetes cases rise as predicted.” Doesn’t anyone care about eliminating this horrible health condition?

American culture seem happy with “managing” disease, not finding a cure

John Agwunobi, M.D., president of Walmart U.S. health and wellness has said, “Many people with diabetes struggle to manage their disease due to its terrible financial burden” and he goes on to say, “We’ve worked closely with our suppliers and found a way to significantly reduce the cost of diabetes products for all of our customers, whether they have insurance or not, so they can better manage their disease.”

In other words, the diabetes market is being viewed by several private label and brand name companies as a huge profit center. Is this really the best healthcare model for diabetic patients? I say we must make “managing” diabetes – socially unacceptable – it’s time to demand a cure!

Modern medicine has failed to help the diabetic population

When a physician wants to (only) “monitor” your diabetes and “watch closely” to ensure that your health doesn’t decline – they’re telling you they do NOT know how to help you eliminate the disease. Giving a diabetic patient more and more insulin and glucose drinks will only create more suffering over the years. The only way to solve blood sugar imbalances is to make changes in diet and lifestyle conditions.

The truth is diabetes has been completely reversed by following a more natural diet. Diabetics should immediately replace processed carbohydrates with whole food choices, which include plenty of organic raw and cooked greens, such as, arugula, kale and spinach. In addition, for people eating animal food, grass-fed beef or wild caught fish are better choices than “farm raised” toxic varieties of animal protein.

Eliminate diabetes by taking better care of yourself

With a simple shift back to a natural diet, we not only remove foods like simple carbohydrates but are increasing our intake of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Lifestyle changes have to include exercise – which will keep blood sugar at a healthy level. By the way, walking 30 minutes per day is a great place to start.

A ground breaking study in Diabetologia proved that Type-2 diabetes can be reversed though diet changes. The study showed this happens in one to eight weeks.
