In short, diabetes begins when your body experiences a cellular resistance to the protein called insulin that has, as its purpose, the putting of glucose from the bloodstream after being absorbed by the digestive system, into the cells of the body to be used as fuel. If the cells don’t respond, the blood sugar increases and this eventually does damage to many parts of the body.
Modern medicine tells us that there is no cure for type 2 diabetes and we are also told that once you have developed the propensity for the condition, you will always have it. This is simply untrue We are also told, particularly by the pharmaceutical industry that diabetics are insulin resistant. In 1950, Nathan Pritikin demonstrated that in some 85% of diabetics, adequate insulin is available in the bloodstream, but it is unable to reach the cell. He asserted that the receptors in the cells are blocked and coated with cholesterol so that insulin is unable to reach them. Charlotte Gerson, the daughter of renowned Dr. Max Gerson indicates that diabetes is more so a problem with cholesterol so when we address this problem without the use of toxic drugs the body is restored thus allowing the cells to receive the insulin it needs to properly regulate blood sugar.
Medications are available that can directly increase the output of insulin from the pancreas. There are also medications that can reduce the cellular resistance to insulin, allowing more glucose to be absorbed by the cells. But as history shows us, drugs do not heal are not not very effective in controlling diabetes. Norton Hadler, MC, of the University of North Carolina has stated "No oral diabetes drug has ever been shown to do anything really good for any patient. No leg, eye, kidney or brain has been spared." 2 Are drugs really the answer? Do we really want to take medication for the rest of our lives, only to find that other organs of the body become damaged in the process? Do we really want to take medications, only to discover a new side effect that will require more drugs to treat the side effects of the other drugs? When does the madness end? Could there be a better way?
How can you get started on a better diet for diabetes?
To get prompt results when trying to reverse diabetes, salt and/or salted foods must be eliminated. Sodium (white table salt) causes fluid retention and it's toxic to the body. In an effort to defend itself against the toxic effects of salt, the body will bind the water to the cells. As salt is eliminated, and proper nutrients are consumed, potassium will begin to balance, the water is excreted and natural weight loss will occur.
Eat a high-fiber, vegetarian and fruit diet
Proper nutrients are necessary in order to support the healing process and to provide the body with the building blocks it needs to reverse diabetes. A high fiber diet is important because the bowels need to move and diets high in animal protein provide no fiber. Eat freely all kinds of raw fruits and vegetables such as celery, carrots, red or green peppers, tomato slices, raw apples etc. Leafy greens are especially important and diabetics should eat freely all kinds of fresh leafy greens (raw of course) such as endive, dandelion, red leaf lettuce, radishes, tomatoes, green onions, kale, chard etc.
