 Diabetes Type II (Insulin Resistant Diabetes) 

When carbohydrate intake and blood sugar levels are too high, the body produces an abundance of insulin, the primary "fat-storage hormone.” Insulin allows sugar into fat cells for conversion into fat. When glucose receptors in the body get worn down by years of high blood sugar, insulin resistance occurs. While it's possible to have this kind of condition and not be overweight, it's very rare. According to the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse most people with insulin resistance develop full-blown Type 2 diabetes within 10 years unless they lower their carbohydrate intake and blood sugar.

Our Unique approach uses comprehensive diagnostic measuremens for blood sugar that go beyond hemoglobin A1C, and blood glucose challenge tests, and full Nutritional Services that include menu planning, meal planning, shopping lists, and carbohydrate counts, including a copy of our book on this subject. We are able to in a few months help a patient go from medications to renewed health and vitality through diet and exercise modification and nutriceuticals.

Signs of High Blood Sugar and Insulin Resistance

If you are overweight, with a history of hypertension, high blood sugar, and heart disease, these foretell what is known as “The Deadly Quartet”:

High Blood Sugar over 90 mg/dl

Insulin resistance, meaning the body needs more insulin to handle its blood sugar

Increased abdominal fat, meaning a 40” waistline or greater for men and 35” waistline or greater for women.

High blood pressure equal to or greater than 130/85 mm Hg.

Signs of arterial disease--- glaucoma, cataracts, impaired vision, impotence or sexual dysfunction, numbness and tingling in hands and feet.

High blood sugar is the leading cause of arterial disease of the brain, eye, heart, kidney and lower limbs. Diabetes is for this reason that leading cause of dementia, blindness, heart attack, kidney failure, impotence and limb amputation. Lowering your blood sugar with natural Holistic healing, diet and exercise can safely help an individual with Diabetes toward a complete cure in months.

High Blood Sugar and Mood:

When a person has a high carbohydrate snack, such as a bagel or even an apple, the blood sugar crashes after just 30 minutes. A high carbohydrate meal induces huge swings in blood sugar, followed by drowsiness, irritability and hunger. It is one of the leading contributors to depression today. Extracts such as chromium and gynmema can all help control blood sugar levels when a diet is not working alone.

Supplements that help:

Chromium, Cinnamon, Bitter melon, Gymnema Sylvestre and vanadyl sulfate can all help an individual combat insulin resistance naturally.

Cinnamon. A half teaspoon a day can lead to 20% improvement in blood sugar. Cinnamon has been used for several thousand years in traditional Ayurvedic and Greco-European medical systems. Native to in southern tropical India, the bark of this evergreen tree has three active components of cinnamon found to have beneficial biological activity, increasing insulin-dependent glucose metabolism by roughly 20-fold in vitro (Anderson RA 2004).

Chromium. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that plays a significant role in sugar metabolism. It helps lower blood sugar levels by improving insulin receptor sensitivity. The richest natural source is red zinger tea, lemongrass, and juniper berry and brewers' yeast.

Gymnema Sylvestre The leaves have been used for over 2000 years in India. It Improves insulin release and insulin’s affect. When applied to the tongue, it blocks the sensation of sweetness. Interestingly, it produces little effect in individuals with normal blood sugar.

Bitter melon. (Balsam pear) Contains charantin, more potent than the oral hypoglycemic drug tolbutamide. 15 grams of bitter melon extract produces a 50% decrease in after meal blood sugar. (Y. Srivastava et al. 1993)

Vanadyl sulfate. Helps activate transport proteins for glucose uptake functioning much like chromium.

Kino tree bark--- rich in epicatechin and pterostibene, two antioxidant rich flavonoids. India's Office Council of Medical Research shows in one clinical trial that after 12 weeks, blood sugar dropped over 32 points with 93 patients. A second group produced an average drop of nearly 56 points, with no side effects.

Magnesium and Potassium lowered carbohydrate intake is a natural diuretic, reducing blood pressure. A wheatgrass or green supplement can replace these minerals naturally.

Vitamin C.

Vitamin C or citrate is the single best natural chelator of calcium from arteries. Modern theories suggest that after glycation from sugar, vitamin C deficiency may be the second leading cause of arterial disease and decay.

Other helpful supplements:

Cortisol lowering – soy lecithin (phosphatidyl serine rich lowers cortisol, an insulin resistant factor)

Metabolic support--- iodine from kelp for thyroid

Antioxidants-- alpha lipoic acid, IV glutathione for cataract, glaucoma

Neuropathy-- DHA , lecithin, B-12(for neuropathy)

GI detoxification--- to lower bacteria that feed on sugar

Other: Banaba, Jambolan fruit, Neem bark, White kidney bean, lagerstroemia speciosa
