Natural Cure For Insulin Resistance – 4 Proven Effective Methods

FILED IN Other No Comments

In conventional medicine, it is generally known among diabetes patients that there is no cure for Type 2 diabetes which is caused by a type body abnormality known as insulin resistance. The doctors often tell the patients that their diabetic condition is harmless as long as the blood sugar level is properly managed with the help of some medications.

The pathetic fact is that not only the diabetic condition cannot be controlled by those fancy drugs, it actually becomes worse and eventually develops to some diabetic complications such as renal failure, diabetic neuropathy, blindness, and finally death. This kind of distressing situations can be seen in almost every hospital around the world.

For those who can foresee where the chemical drugs will lead them to, they are more open for some alternative homeopathic treatments to treat their diabetes. They are constantly searching for the natural cure for insulin resistance which has no side effects and more effective in the long run. Is it possible to have an ultimate cure for insulin resistance?

Instead of blindly follow the folklore health advices and try some of the unknown herbs, you should begin by gaining a better understanding about insulin resistance and the root cause of it. According the Asian health researches, we have solid proofs that insulin resistance is rooted from the change of internal body environment which gradually decrease the sensitivity of the insulin receptors in the surface of the body cells. When the insulin receptors cannot effectively bond with insulin to open up the glucose channels, and glucose is returned to the blood stream and causes hyperglycemia.

The main cause of the change of the internal environment is a process known as acidosis which is the accumulation of acidic toxins in the body due to unhealthy eating habits and unbalanced more lifestyle. With that in mind, here are 4 types of proven effective natural cure for insulin resistance you can consider trying:

Ionized Alkaline Water

Since diabetes can cause serious dehydration, you should make sure you drink enough water during the day. Instead of drinking normal neutral water, you should drink ionized alkaline water to neutralize those toxic acids in your body.

Foot Reflexology Therapy

Liver, pancreas and kidneys are the organs that regulate the hormones that control the glucose level in the body. In order to return their capabilities and effectiveness in regulating your blood glucose level, you should frequently give them some good ‘massage’ to stimulate them. The only way you can massage the internal organs is through reflexology therapy.

Hand Acupressure Therapy

Since it is quite inconvenient to have foot reflexology everyday, hand acupressure therapy is a more convenient way to stimulate the related organs. You can perform it anywhere, anytime.

Calcium Ion Supplement

Calcium is the most important mineral element in human body. Beside being the main building material for our bones, calcium ion is also important as a buffer to neutralize the excessive acids in the body.

All the methods mentioned above are logically make sense and had been tried out by hundreds and thousands of people with insulin resistance, especially in the Asia region. The result is very encouraging, more than 90% of them show positive improvements. The other 10% did not experience any significant result because they did not have the discipline to follow through, these are the people who are looking for a magic pill that can cure insulin resistance immediately. God bless them.



Fifty Percent Of Us Are On The Road To Diabetes

One of the harmful affects on our bodies of living our modern sedentary lifestyle that no longer has enough physical activity to keep our muscles strong is that our muscle cells become less responsive to the hormone insulin.

Insulin is the ‘key’ that tells the muscle cells to unlock the door and ‘open up’ to take in glucose from the blood stream that has been converted from the food we eat to be used for energy. But our muscles have grown flabby and weak from our inactive lifestyles so they cannot use the glucose.

So, with the cell door closed glucose remains in the blood stream circulating around with nowhere to go but eventually into the fat stores. But the levels are consistently higher than they should be so more and more insulin is produced to try and get the levels down. Then there are not only high blood sugar levels but high insulin levels as well hanging around where they should not be doing major damage to cells, tissue and organs.

You may be wondering why this is important but this is a condition called ‘Insulin Resistance’ which if you have it will lead you down a path to full blown diabetes. This devastating disease does major damage to sensitive organs like the brain, eyes and kidneys and that is what leads to a shortened life if you are unfortunate enough to go on to develop diabetes.

This condition is becoming more common and is affecting up to 50 percent of adults who either have this condition or are in the process of developing it and one third of all children. As we get older we become more prone to develop it as the combination o our no-exercise lifestyles together with a diet of refined foods takes it toll on our health.

It can easily be reversed though but it will take some action to restore good health. Firstly a strength training program done just 2-3 times a week will get those muscles toned back up so they can soak up excess sugar from the blood stream and burn it up harmlessly for energy. Muscle tissue is highly active and has high energy demands so taking this step alone will go a long way to getting a healthy body back.

The next thing is to get rid of as much refined and processed foods as possible as the more of them we eat the more insulin is required to metabolize them. The more insulin needed and present in our blood the less the cells can take it up and the more damage is caused to other organs and tissues.

Women especially around mid-life are especially prone to this condition. A waist measurement of over 35 inches (40 for men) is one sign, fatigue, climbing blood pressure and blood fats are all other indicators.

In essence our lifestyles along with our environment have all evolved and changed too rapidly for our bodies to keep up the pace. We still have the same genetic blue-print of our ancestors who thrived on a diet of natural, nutrient rich foods low in carbohydrates. They were also highly active on a day-to-day basis with much greater levels of vigorous movement and exercise than our modern sedentary lifestyles.

But we can put some of these things back into our life and make some changes that will keep us healthy and well. It will not be easy though as we are surrounded by mountains of processed ‘junk’ food and leisure activities that involve no more activity than sitting.



What Is Insulin and How Do We Produce It?

FILED IN Insulin Levels No Comments

Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas to battle rising blood sugar levels caused by normal carbohydrate intake. A diabetic person is unable to produce Insulin at all so must take injections to keep blood sugar levels at an acceptable level.

Insulin causes cells in the liver, muscle, and fat tissue to absorb glucose from the blood. Recombinant DNA technology is used to synthetically create Insulin for medical use. A type 1 diabetic can take insulin in the form of injections in a Multiple Daily Injections scheme or with the use of an insulin pump which closely mimics the action of a real pancreas.

The cause of type 1 diabetes is not yet understood fully which makes finding a cure very difficult. Usually children and young adults are diagnosed and most continue to live a normal healthy life by learning to manage and control the condition

Insulin contains two separate amino acid chains bonded together. Proteins are all made up of amino acids, the basic building blocks. The two chains have slightly different amounts of amino acids.

Preproinsulin is required to be produced before an active insulin protein can be made. Preproinsulin is a single protein chain containing both of the separate chains, a section in the middle links the chains together and stimulates the proteins to secret. An evolution then occurs developing proinsulin and finally an active insulin protein is formed which does not have the linking section between the individual chains.

Specific enzymes are required by the protein at each step of evolution to ensure the next step is accurately generated.

Insulin production is a lengthy and complicated process but the millions of type one diabetics rely on it every day to keep well and healthy.
