Wow. I came across something interesting. At first, I was looking up general health information. Usually, when I start a quest I make so many turns online I couldn’t tell you how I arrived at the destination. This time the twists and turns led me to the subject of diabetes, which peaked my interest.
I grew up in a typical household, and I remember watching my grandmother and grandfather on occasion stick needles into their sides or stomachs. I was too young to understand why they did this to themselves, and I remember feeling bad when I saw them do it. As I grew up, I would hear them talk about blood sugar. Is it too high? I watched them prick their fingers to get drops of blood to put onto a small machine to determine just that. It was their life, as I knew it.
I didn’t know there was more than one type of diabetes until years later when I read a famous actress was diabetic. I would ask, why do people get diabetes? The answer was, because they don’t produce enough insulin when they eat. But, why do people stop producing enough insulin? Because they have overworked their pancreas. So, it seemed like it was the diabetics’ fault for getting diabetes. They didn’t eat properly and they didn’t exercise. They ate too many sweets and were over weight and because of this, their pancreases have become too tired to work.
The Problem – Diabetes
Since I still have family members who live with diabetes, my research was personal. I came across this guy talking about diabetes in a way I had not heard anyone do before. I listened to everything he had to say and began to have a different perspective of what to search for online. I started down a rabbit hole
that took me to a place I didn’t expect. What I found, in my opinion, is worthy of telling the world because humbly I say it isn’t only just beneficial for the people I love who live with diabetes, it’s also for me and possibly you too!
For the past 20 years, I’ve been on a silent pursuit of good health. When I come across something that seems worthy of my attention, I first look into it, then I try it, and if I believe it to be good then, I tell people about it. While in the rabbit hole I mentioned earlier, I examined charts and maps. I didn’t imagine when I first started my research on diabetes I would find the potential culprit for its existence!
Of course, we’ve been told that insulin resistance is the reason. But, why? Is it really because of someone’s diet? Is it really the person’s fault? Why do some people have diabetes and others, in the same household, do not? Has anyone come close to resolving diabetes or will this diagnosis always be a lifelong condition to all who receive it?
Insulin medication and everything surrounding it is a billion dollar industry now. Are there incentives for those who profit from this industry to be okay without it?
I’d like to know what you think. Here is the link to the guy I mentioned earlier. Listen and form your own opinion.
