Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin Resistance

Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin Resistance
Diabetes is rapidly becoming the world's second biggest health problem. This condition occurs when the pancreas stops producing enough insulin to help control our blood sugar levels. Insulin resistance is when our bodies stop responding to the insulin that is being produced. This results in higher blood sugar levels in the blood stream. Insulin resistance is often the precursor to type 2 diabetes and, if caught early, can be controlled and even reversed before it worsens & makes one dependent on medication.
🍀 remove all refined sugars and carbohydrates, especially refined wheat products from each meal
🍀 Avoid all trans fats and processed foods (cookies, cakes, potato chips, ...)
🍀 Eat protein and use good fats (olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil)
🍀 Exercising for 30 minutes daily is vitally important
🍀 Add pancreas stimulating foods to your diet: bitter gourd is fantastic. You can juice it or have it as a tea. This will stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin.
7.5cm fresh aloe vera or half a cup pure aloe vera juice
Handful of basil
1/2 bitter gourd
2 teaspoons cayenne tincture (recipe on my blog)
1 green apple
2 carrots
85g broccoli
Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Add some water to aid the blades or juice in a slow juicer.
Chromium is a natural mineral that helps keep our blood sugar stable. When our bodies stop responding to insulin, chromium can help. You'll find tips on chromium-rich foods and supplementing information in my book 'Simply Natural Health'. As always take care and stay healthy. Lots of love, Juliet 💕
