The Side Effect of a Pandemic for Diabetics

Diabetes 

Diabetes deaths surged during the pandemic, rising 17% in 2020

Even diabetics who didn’t get this flu  suffered, often falling victim to isolation, social distancing, lack of medical care and fear

Diabetes deaths and diabetes-caused amputations and intensive care admissions have plagued diabetes patients who delayed medical care during the pandemic; ‘The diagnosis was uncontrolled diabetes, but it was caused by pandemic fear’

Among 8- to 20-year-olds, Type 2 diabetes diagnoses tripled in 2020 at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C.; school closures and reduced physical activity triggered by the pandemic were likely factors in the sudden rise

Among U.S. adults who responded to the American Psychological Association’s 2021 Stress in America poll, 42% said they had gained more weight than they intended since the pandemic started  

Eliminating ultraprocessed foods is an essential part of tackling both obesity and Type 2 diabetes, in part because it lowers your intake of toxic seed oils that are driving both conditions.

Know if you Have Insulin Resistance

Insulin is a hormone that prevents sugar from building up too high in your blood. For example, if you consume too many carbs and your blood sugar rises too high, insulin comes in and removes it to help keep the blood sugars at a constant level. Normally, sugar is used as fuel in the body. But, with insulin resistance, sugar is converted into fat. One of the purposes of insulin is to prevent fat-burning and encourage fat-storing. Learn how to test your insulin resistance in this Educational Video  How to Test for Insulin Resistance

There are more ways to measure your insulin resistance, including without a blood test. You can use your waist-height ratio, which you can find out right at home. This is much more accurate than just weighing yourself.

How the Medical System was Corrupted

This write up is by a friend which talks about the change over the years from plant medicine to chemical medicine.    Here is what he says:

“Just a century ago, there were 22 homeopathic medical schools, 100 homeopathic hospitals, and over 1,000 homeopathic pharmacies. Boston University, Stanford University, and New York Medical College all taught homeopathy.

This all changed due to the Flexnor Report — officially known as Medical Education in the United States and Canada — in 1910. The report was an attempt to align medical education under a set of norms that emphasized laboratory research and the patenting of medicine. The report was funded by John Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie, among others.

Rockefeller and Carnegie offered grants to the best medical schools in America — with a caveat: only an allopathic-based curriculum could be taught. Thus, Rockefeller and Carnegie systematically dismantled the courses of these schools by removing any mention of the natural healing power of herbs and plants, or of the importance of diet to health.

Rockefeller used his power to influence Congress into declaring the AMA (American Medical Association) the only body with the right to grant medical school licenses in the United States. This suited Rockefeller perfectly – he then used the AMA to compel the Government to destroy the natural competition, which it did through regulating medical schools.

After the Flexner Report, the AMA only endorsed schools with a drug-based curriculum. It didn’t take long before non-allopathic schools fell by the wayside due to lack of funding and fear mongering/smear campaigns against natural remedies.

The result is a system which churns out doctors who are deficient in nutritional, herbal, and homeopathic knowledge and who disregard the idea that what you eat can actually heal or hurt you.

While physicians encourage patients to make healthy food choices, only 27 percent of U.S. medical schools actually offer students the recommended 25 hours of nutritional training, according to a perspective piece in the July 2015 issue of Academic Medicine. The word “nutrition” is not included in board examination requirements for internal medicine certification, and cardiology fellows do not need to complete a single requirement in nutrition counseling.

I truly believe that homeopathy is our best hope at undoing all that has been done to us.

Being healthy is the truest form of rebellion, let’s devote this time before winter comes to nourishing, building up, and gaining wisdom in how to rebel against our pharma handlers.”

I agree except that not only homepathy, but plant medicine like herbs and essential oils work well and have worked for thousands of years.   And add to that a good chemical free, diet works wonders to build health.

Government GMO food label coming soon

Should You Care About the Government’s new “Bioengineered” GMO Food Label?

Starting January 2022, some grocery store foods will begin featuring a statement or a symbol indicating that they contain “Bioengineered” ingredients. This labeling law — called by critics the DARK Act when it passed, Denying Americans the Right to Know — is the U.S. government’s solution to informing the public about foods that contain GMOs.

Unfortunately, the law is not a sufficient way to keep GMOs out of your shopping cart. For starters, it largely does not address new types of GMOs, nor meat and dairy products that come from animals fed GMOs

Learn more about the “BE Food” label, and why the Butterfly is still the most trusted and rigorous seal for true GMO avoidance!

Digestion Problems – Is it your Stomach or Liver?

There are many people who complain about digestive problems. They take all sorts of prescription medications and over the counter remedies.   They take natural products as well.  It has a lot of people’s attention.

Medication Side Effects and Nutritional Deficiencies

Ever listen to a drug commercial and their disclaimer at the end where they tell you all the possible side effects.   Or did you ever check on the potential side effects of a drug you are taking on one of the sites www.rxlist.com or www.drugs.com ? You might wonder what can create so many problems.

Well, it is true that a drug is a chemical that is unnatural to the body and is actually a toxin to the body, but due to those very properties they force the body to make some corrections, or at the very least cover up the symptoms of whatever it is that is a problem.

The Safety of Vitamin B6

by Bob Held

The Linus Pauling Institute found that adverse effects have only been documented from Vitamin B6 supplements and never from food sources.

Therefore, safety concerning only the supplemental form of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, also called pyridoxine hydrochloride) is discussed here.

Although vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin and is excreted in the urine, long-term supplementation with very high doses of pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) may result in painful neurological symptoms known as sensory neuropathy.

Symptoms include pain and numbness of the extremities and in severe cases, difficulty walking. Sensory neuropathy typically develops at doses of pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) in excess of 1,000 mg a day.

However, there have been a few case reports of individuals who developed sensory neuropathies at doses of less than 500 mg of Vitamin B6 daily over a period of months.

None of the studies in which a neurological examination was performed reported evidence of sensory nerve damage at intakes below 200 mg of pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) daily.

To prevent sensory neuropathy in virtually all individuals, the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine set the tolerable upper intake level for pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) at 100 mg/day for adults.

You have to Check the Labels, and more – Healthy Foods

There was a time when shopping at a Health Food Store pretty much assured that you got whole foods without pesticides, hidden sugars or chemicals.   That time has passed.

It is now popular to be natural and healthy.   But once something becomes popular, you are now assured that there are marketers out there that are looking to trick you into buying their products.

First you have to check the labels on any processed foods.  What is really in them?  Make sure you know what each of the ingredients mean.   An example is MSG, which has a long list of of names that actually mean they include MSG.

Emergen-C has been around for a long time.  It’s quite popular.   The company has been bought out by a drug company – Pfizer.   Yes, the world’s biggest drug company.  Pfizer has a history of health care fraud and illegal marketing of its products now wants to sell you Vitamin C.   Their big name multi-vitamin is Centrum.   This is a popular brand due to their advertising, but is actually a collection of man-made vitamins created in the lab.   In fact, people complain about side effects from taking Centrum including headaches and gassy stomach.    What will they do to the vitamin C formula?

Do you like fruit juices?  You can buy many different combinations that sound delicious and are touted as healthy.  But are they what they say they are?   Naked Juice is a popular brand which is owned by the Pepsi Cola Company.  There is a lawsuit due to the fact that their advertising states they are natural but their ingredients are not.  They are being sued for using GMOs and synthetic substances in its “Non-GMO” and “All-Natural” products.  They are hardly “all natural”.

There are more.  The bottom line is that you have to be careful about any processed foods and supplements that you buy.   You have to check the labels.

Here is a site that gives you information on GMO Foods http://www.nongmoshoppingguide.com/

On supplements, remember to look for whole food supplements, the type that your body recognizes as food, not made in a laboratory.    Some info is here http://www.mcvitamins.com/natural-vs-synthetic.htm

And for that long list of names that mean MSG   http://www.mcvitamins.com/Causes%20of%20Neuropathy/toxins-cause-neuropathy.htm#A    Boy, was I upset when I found a “homemade” soup at a health food store that I liked and checked the ingredients.  Yes, one of the ingredients listed was another name for MSG.  You have to be vigilant.

To your health!
