Treat diabetes with common cinnamon?
Many type II diabetics may never need drugs again!
Someday soon the threat of diabetes
type II could be wiped out for millions of people. Because you could overcome and prevent it, using nothing more costly than table cinnamon.
NOTE: I’m not talking about some exotic variety, but the stuff that’s already in your cupboard!
Up until recently, type II diabetics thought they had no choice but to pay through the nose for prescription drugs. Side effects from these drugs include extreme weakness, muscle pain
, trouble breathing and even heart arrhythmia.
Changes within “the Change” keeping your hormones in balance!
Menopause involves change for every woman but does not need to spell disaster. Imagine developing type 2 diabetes just because you’ve gone through menopause.
Menopause is a topic that often generates a lot of opinions from women — those who welcome it and those who dread it.
There’s also a lot of discussion about whether it’s something that should be “treated” or left to occur naturally, without any medications.
Dr Golding explains how hormone replacement is all synthetic and not based on hormones we naturally produce. And this is the leading cause of type 2 diabetes...
Why synthetic, non-bio-identical hormones have so many side effects…
Synthetic and pharmaceutical hormones are artificial chemicals that attempt to replicate human hormones. They are structurally foreign to the body.
While bio-identical hormones have the identical molecular structure to human hormones, enabling easy metabolism, synthetic hormones are altered to have a different chemical make-up than natural hormones. It's this structural difference has caused so many side effects over the years.
The immune system
is well-documented to attack anything it perceives as foreign or toxic to the body. From an evolutionary aspect, it takes millennia to become accustomed to a new chemical entity.
New foreign chemical entities are fraught with dangers, even in our food. An example is the relatively recent hydrogenation of liquid plant oils into foreign saturated fats and the formation of trans-fats, in food production.
These foreign fats have only been around for the last 50 years and they result in increases in type 2 diabetes.
Similarly, synthetic non-bio-identical hormones have only been around for less than 50 years, compared to bio-identical ones, which have existed in our bodies since the beginning of the human race. These synthetic hormones are associated with increased side effects and can very often be detrimental to your health.
Like in so many cases the synthetic hormone replacements have been found in studies of woman going through menopause and received hormone replacement discovered that thyroid, pancreas and liver function where all damaged due to the synthetic hormone replacement.
Studied showed in all cases these woman developed type 2 diabetes, from the damage of synthetic hormone replacement.
Ask your doctor for bio-identical hormones that are at your disposal
What to do BEFORE Taking Hormones of Any Kind
Natural bioidentical hormones can offer relief from menopausal symptoms, but they should not be your first go-to option.
Treating hormone imbalances requires a whole-body approach; the best approaches are often preventive and involve diet, exercise and other lifestyle-based strategies.
For instance, both oestrogen and progesterone are necessary in the female cycle, and their balance is key for optimal health. Many women have an imbalance of these hormones, regardless of their age. And if you have insufficient levels of progesterone to counter excessive oestrogen, this imbalance can be further exacerbated by chronic stress
So your answer might not necessarily lie in using hormones, but rather addressing your stress
levels so that your body can normalize your hormone levels naturally.
Likewise, eating right for your nutritional type and exercising regularly can go a long way to keeping your hormones balanced as you age.
Refined carbohydrates, processed and heated fats -- and too much of it -- all serve to raise your oestrogen to abnormal levels, as much as twice the normal, which are maintained for the better part of the adult lives of most South African women. This is a MAJOR contributing cause of menopausal symptoms in the first place.
Consuming plenty of phytoestrogens (plant-estrogens) such as licorice and alfalfa before menopause can also help moderate your day-to-day estrogen levels so that when menopause comes, the drop won’t be so dramatic. (Beware, however, that soy is not a good option here.)
You’ll also want to make sure your vitamin D levels are optimised, as this is a must for gene regulation and optimal health.
Certain polyphenols have also been shown to have some HRT-like benefits without the drawbacks, and are associated with a lowered risk of heart disease
. Royal Matcha seems to be an amazing adapt genic herbal solution for menopause that has helped many women. Be sure to avoid the inexpensive varieties, as they typically don’t work. If you chose this option make sure to obtain the authentic version from Peru.
You’ll also want to get plenty high quality animal-based omega-3 fats
, such as krill oil may help regulate body temperature and hot flashes.
In many cases, these lifestyle strategies will be very effective in relieving menopausal symptoms, but in cases where it is not enough, bio identical hormones will help.
You’ll want to make sure you get your hormonal levels checked properly before embarking on any kind of hormone supplementation program, and work with a knowledgeable health care practitioner who can guide you.
