So yesterday we spoke about what diabetes is and how it affects the body.
Today we're going to talk about how to be an "out of the box" thinker when it comes to this debilitating disease.
So we left off yesterday needing a solution.
As we know from previous Health Tips . . . when "bad" bacteria in our body grows out of control . . . it can affect the pancreas negatively. When there's a bacterial overgrowth, leaky gut facilitates the translocation of bacteria and toxins to the pancreas. This causes pancreatic inflammation, which can cause pancreatitis.
Remember yesterday we spoke of the destruction of pancreatic cells in type I diabetes. Well, this translocation of bacteria and toxins to the pancreas are a major factor as to why this happens.
So the connection between a bacterial overgrowth and diabetes is this . . . the pancreas produces enzymes that help digestion and hormones (insulin) that helps to regulate the way the body processes sugar (glucose) for cell energy. If this bacterial overgrowth is causing inflammation (which it will) in the pancreas, it will disrupt the hormone insulin. This inflammation of the pancreas is now called pancreatitis.
Now when this inflammation occurs from an overgrowth of bacteria . . . the bacteria releases a toxic byproduct called "Ethanol". Which creates "chronic pancreatitis".
And guess what? . . . "Diabetes" is a common "side effect" of "chronic pancreatitis"!
This byproduct of "Ethanol" can also reduce the body's "sensitivity to insulin", which can trigger type II diabetes. So let me ask you this . . . have you ever wondered why people that drink alcoholic beverages are at a higher risk of having Diabetes???? Well . . . that's because "Alcohol" is "Ethanol"!!!!!!
Now add on to that . . . the toxic proteins we spoke of the other day that cause "insulin resistance" . . . . well, these proteins leave us with a reduced ability in the cells to absorb and use blood sugar for energy efficiently.
And you now find yourself with an increased risk of developing pre-diabetes and eventually type II diabetes.
So for conventional medicine and its science to say there is no cure . . . to me . . . this is an incorrect statement. And we do not have to "just" manage this disease with conventional treatment . . . because if you correct the body's "internal dialogue" and eliminate the overgrowth of "bad" bacteria in our body from this Western diet and lifestyle . . . the body's pancreas would heal and insulin production would stabilize.
So tomorrow we'ill talk about a way to give the body some relief from insulin gone wild.
