I am sure all of you have heard the expression, you are what you eat. Well, that expression holds a lot of truth to it.  The health challenge of diabetes is growing to epidemic proportion.  So, the health habits for today will be about prevention and reducing high sugars in the blood stream.

Firstly some might be thinking I already have diabetes so I will always have diabetes, maybe, but I don’t entirely buy into that theory. As well some might be thinking, diabetes runs in my family so I am destine to get diabetes.  I definitely don’t buy into that theory.

For some, change is a difficult process.  What I like to think about are the risks of not changing and the rewards of changing.  So let’s look at the side effects of diabetes; 1) type 2 diabetes, most common side effect is the blood vessels, which can lead to heart challenges and even stroke 2) vision 3) circulation which can lead to nerve damage and amputation 4) kidney issues 5) conception challenges including sexual dysfunction and miscarriages.

I want to remind you, type 2 diabetes is totally and I truly mean totally a health challenge that can be eliminated by proper food intake and a healthy life style.  In other words, you are your own type 2 diabetes control board.

The side effects of type 2 diabetes that were listed did not include the side effects from insulin the drug used either in pill or injection form.  Some of the side effects of insulin could include, weight gain, cardiovascular risk, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, haemorrhage, pancreatitis just to name a few.  These side effects would then be treated with other pharmaceutical drugs that have in themselves more side effects.

So now the rewards of making some healthy changes to lower blood sugar and prevent type 2 diabetes. 1) you won’t have diabetes 2) you won’t have to take medication or injections 3) you won’t have to prick your finger daily 4) you won’t have the side effects of type 2 diabetes like blood vessels issues, vision, circulatory issues, nerve damage, kidney issues and sexual dysfunction 5) you won’t have side effects of taking insulin.  The rewards out way the risks 100 to 1, but you are the only one who can make that decision to make the change. Please don’t give me excuses why you can’t, because if you want to you can.  I have to ask you, is your health and wellness worth making the changes?

I hope you said yes, I and my health and wellness are worth making some changes.

If you did, here are a list of some basic changes you can make; 1) food intake, reduce sugar, eat fresh fruit and vegetables, reduce processed food, which means reducing the amount of prepared food you intake, eat good protein, eat good whole grains 2) don’t say you are on a diet, you are changing your food intake, you are not dieting, you do not have to starve, in fact when you eat properly you feel fuller and better 3) eat 3 to 5 small meals a day 4) exercise, do what you like to do, but you have to exercise 5) reduce or stop the obvious, drinking pop and that includes diet pop, alcohol 6) drink water 7) take digestive enzymes with a pancreatic component.  There are tissue salts and homeopathic medicine that can be used but you should have a natural health care practitioners guide you in this area.
