Having diabetes and not knowing it is not unusual, although valuable time is lost when this happens. There are millions of people suffering from diabetes and there are millions that are completely unaware that they've got the disease.
Diabetes disease is the 5th cause of death in adults. Diagnosed diabetes increased 49% over the last decade. According to studies many diseases are increasing and yet very seldom we are born with any of them. We would be wrong not to believe that this is not caused through our food and lifestyle. This has been proven many times, most diseases are reversible through change of diet and lifestyle, and diabetes is one of it. Prescription drugs will only keep a lid on most diseases and illnesses but will never cure them, and diabetes is no difference. Facts about diabetes you're not being told by your doctor or health officials: There are alternative cures reversing type 2 diabetes and returning to a normal, healthy, and drug free life.

Many years ago diabetes was so rare that most doctors didn't know how to describe it or what it even was.
Now diabetes is raging among the total population, why?
What is the answer?
There is this question we all have to ask: Why are the queues of sick people in hospitals getting longer by the minute with all the medical technology and apparently latest improved conventional medicines?
The short answer is: Food, exercise and lifestyle! We are going to the wrong pharmacy instead of using Mother Nature's pharmacy and all the products it has to offer to the fullest. When illness and diseases were less common, our food was not interfered with, not over processed and more nutritional.
As we know exercise has many benefits, but do you know that change of diet and regular exercise will slow down or cure type 2 diabetes within months?
Using Mother Nature's pharmacy!
Please acknowledge that not all diets are equal. Changing to a healthy diet does not fix every illness or disease; one diet does not suit all!
For instance, a diet to lower your blood pressure or tackle inflammation and arthritis would need different types of food than you would use to correct diabetes type 2. There are a number of foods you would have to choose from for a diabetes diet. For example: A type of food that has high magnesium content such as dry roasted almonds, roasted cashews, mixed nuts, soybeans mature cooked, spinach, potatoes baked with skin, rice - brown long-grained, lentils, kidney beans, wheat bran, plain yogurt, avocado etc.
Cinnamon: This most common spice is not only good for blood pressure, it also lowers cholesterol and protects against heart disease. By taking cinnamon on a daily basis this will help to metabolize glucose, avoid and fight free radicals. Cinnamon can also stop oxidative damage to cells that occurs when blood sugar levels remain high. It seems to good to believe that this simple and common spice is also a super-nutrient for diabetes.
Another one to watch out for is zinc. Keeping your zinc level up represents a safety net for type 2 diabetes patients, also for people with pre-diabetes. Zinc can also protect against prostate cancer in men. Food sources of zinc include oysters, ginger, split peas, beef liver, beans, buck wheat, sardines and chicken, just as a starter. Use plenty of fresh herbs like basil, mint, parsley, rosemary, paragon and lime.
Natural food is the best medicine!
This is where natural food plays a large role in keeping your gut bacteria and stomach healthy.
What you should eat is a diet of toxin-free proteins, cooked at low heat, healthy good fats and carbohydrates. Another good fat that comes from fresh coconut and coconut oil, good oils including omega 3, 6 and 9 are one of the missing links in reversing diseases and diabetes.
With the right preparation of food you should not go more than three to four hours without food during the day, otherwise you will tend to overeat. According to research, by simply eating less food than normal at meal times especially dinner will lower blood sugar level.
Being on a diet and pursuing an exercise program makes a big difference. This is where variety of things becomes more effective and also where supplements can act much quicker and more successfully.
A word of caution: If you are starting on a natural diet in addition to any medication you are on, do so only under the close supervision of a qualified health professional!
Your health is the most important thing, so protect it the best way you can by taking all the advice that is available and gain as much knowledge as possible.
