There’s an epidemic racing through America at an incredible rate: diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association, it’s the fastest-growing disease in the country and the fifth leading cause of death. If the trend continues, one out of three Americans will develop diabetes in their lifetime.
Each day, more than 4,000 people are diagnosed with diabetes, and more than 600 die from the disease. Since 1987, the death rate due to diabetes has increased by 45%. Even more disturbing is that type 2 diabetes – once called “adult onset diabetes,” and its most common form – is growing at alarming rates today in children as young as 8 years old!
Type 2 diabetes is caused by a shortage of insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin allows glucose (sugar) from food to enter the body’s cells where it is converted into energy needed by muscles and tissues to function.
When there isn’t enough insulin, the cells can’t get the sugar they need, and too much sugar builds up in the blood. Over time, this extra sugar can lead to heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, nervous system disease (neuropathy), and lower limb amputation.
The good news is that research has shown that more than 90% of all cases of diabetes can be prevented. The National Diabetes Education Program states emphatically: “Diabetes prevention is proven, possible, and powerful.”
Researcher Dariush Mozaffarian, MD, assistant professor of epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health agrees. “We know how to prevent nearly all cases of type 2 diabetes,” he concluded in a landmark study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine. Diet, exercise, and a commitment to a wellness lifestyle are the best prevention and treatment.
Diet and exercise are critical in reducing weight, lowering blood sugar levels, and boosting sensitivity to insulin, which helps keep blood sugar within a normal range. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight – around seven percent of initial body weight – and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by nearly 60%.
To correct the effects of stress, I developed Bioenergy Therapy, a scientific method for restoring energy flow and improving muscles, fascia, nerve, and blood vessels throughout your body. Reducing brainstem tension allows your body to function more efficiently and increase your total well-being. It can also strengthen your immune system which can prevent many diseases and conditions, including diabetes.
The fact is that almost ALL diabetes can be prevented, and those with diabetes may be restored to full health without drugs, surgery or other invasive medical procedures.
