Managing Your Diabetes Naturally With These Simple Remedies And Tips
Causes Of Diabetes:
Are Symptoms Being Treated Rather Than A Disease?
Causes of Type 1 Diabetes
In type 1 diabetes, the body no longer makes insulin because the body’s own immune system has attacked and destroyed the cells where insulin is made. The cause of this isn’t entirely clear but it may include genetic risk factors and environmental factors. One theory is that type 1 diabetes may occur after having a specific virus.
People with type 1 diabetes must take insulin every day to live. There is no known way to prevent or cure type 1 diabetes, but it can be controlled by keeping blood glucose (sugar) levels within a normal range.
Causes of Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, the body either doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t use its own insulin as well as it should. The risk of having type 2 diabetes increases as a person gets older.
The cause of type 2 diabetes is largely unknown, but genetics and lifestyle clearly play roles. Type 2 diabetes has been linked to obesity, genetic risk factors, and inactivity. Some racial and ethnic groups are at higher risk for type 2 diabetes. These include American Indians, African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
Medical solutions seem more focused on a reactionary approach to blood sugar management, rather than prevention. But the real problem may not be being addressed… underlying imbalances that lead to the onset of diabetes as a symptom.
Here’s a great article by Summer Tierney at “Natural News”. Summer provides a synopsis of research conducted by Dr. Larry Wilson about mineral deficiences that affect the pancreas. A vision of healing that goes beyond conventional medicine’s seemingly near-exclusionary focus on blood sugar appears necessary for any meaningful healing to occur. As such, those people with diabetes who incorporate the following recommendations for managing diabetes with a more natural management will likely experience profound changes for the better.
Even what conventional medicine might consider a well-managed case of diabetes can be well off the mark of optimal health. Any person with diabetes can tell you that managing this condition — whether type 1 or type 2 — requires a great deal of tenacity and awareness. It’s a burden that a healthy body is better equipped to manage, but in people with diabetes, the body has become unable to properly regulate blood sugar which must now be managed “manually”.
