I love the movies that feature the uprising of the suppressed who manage to elevate and maintain their new heights. Typically I will support any resistance – but not Insulin resistance!
We have known for a while now that consumption of sugar and insulin resistance is definitely associated with obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol. What many don’t acknowledge is that sugar, and the inability to regulate it in your system, is also linked to fatigue, high blood pressure, fatty liver, atherosclerosis, yeast overgrowth, magnesium loss, acidic pH, mineral imbalance, systemic inflammation, PCOS and a slew of other hormonal problems. The real bummer is the association with Alzheimer’s and certain Cancers!
Yeah-yeah! We’ve all heard that the average American consumes over 180 pounds of refined sugar each year, and we know we Americans get half their calories from refined carbohydrates. We just can’t help ourselves!
I mean why stress about it when stress itself is just another factor that contributes to this disease Insulin resistance. You may have also heard that your poor sleep habits, your lack of exercise, and exposure to toxins is also driving you closer to the resistance.
I’m here to tell you that Diabetes is avoidable and reversible and does not have to include medications. It starts with food of course and doing your best to take care of the other stressors mentioned above.
For the rest of November check back for more information on how to protect yourself from diabetes the pandemic that has swept the globe in the past few generations.
