Diabetes is a serious disease in this country. Our pancreas makes insulin which is a hormone that connects to each cells wall and allows the sugar to be admitted into the cell to be used as energy. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the lining of our pancreas is eaten away by our own immune system and prevents the manufacturing of insulin. Type 2 is when our pancreas is stimulated to keep making insulin because of the large amounts of sugar in our system. Eventually the cell tires of the insulin enabling sugars to be absorbed and shuts it down. We become so used to the insulin we ignore it. This is similar to drugs that require larger and larger doses to get the job done. Dr. Dean Ornish, MD in his book, The Spectrum, says diabetes is costing us 12% of the federal healthcare spending or about $80 billion. He also states that diabetes is totally preventable and if you have it you can reverse it. He provides a diet that moves you from a high fat meat diet to a vegetarian one. You can move a little and see major results. His book also talks about exercise and meditation. Remember diet, exercise and meditation or three major items that has a positive effect on your epigenetics. Change your epigenetics and live a happier and healthier life.
