Diabesity - Public enemy number one
You may have been diagnosed with one or more of the following conditions and you are being treated or were proposed treatment for being overweight, having high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, having problems with your blood sugar, or having type 2 diabetes.
You may feel twenty five years older than your actual age, and may even be terrified by the prospect of additional health complications like CRV (cardiovascular disease), stroke, dementia, nerve damage, blindness, amputation or even cancer. Like most others who suffer from these conditions, you might just want to live a normal life and regain some of your energy and vitality levels; as much as you may wish to be able to go back in time and reverse your diabetes, you are told ‘you better get used to it’…
The good news is that you don’t have to!
I realise that most people are sceptical when they are told by a healthcare professional that it is possible to reverse their condition and I intend to show you how this can be done. Moreover, this can be achieved without resolving to any starvation diets, boot camp type exercise regimes or any other ‘shock-treatment’. It is much simpler than you think to make this happen.
To start, I would like to explain what I mean when I use the term ‘diabesity’. The term was coined by Dr Francine Kaufman to describe the combined conditions of diabetes + obesity. We can define ‘diabesity’ as a metabolic dysfunctional condition that ranges from a mild blood sugar imbalance to a full-on type 2 diabetes.
If you have diabetes you also have diabesity but the other way around is not necessarily true. In other words, you may be suffering from diabesity without suffering from diabetes or even having the symptoms of diabetes. In actual fact, most people who have this condition are not aware that they are suffering from a potentially lethal epidemic or that this epidemic is 100% reversible.
Like I mentioned earlier, you may have been diagnosed by your healthcare provider to be suffering from one of many seemingly different diseases such as insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity or one of several existing types of diabetes. However, what your healthcare provider has probably not told you is that all these conditions are pretty much the same thing, admittedly with different degrees of severity or state of progress. Essentially, the underlying causes of all of these conditions, from having a little too much of a ‘love-handle’ to being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, are the same and therefore it is only reasonable that the treatment for all of them should be identical. Personally, I prefer to substitute all these conventional diagnoses with the term ‘diabesity’ which I feel defines more accurately the health problem these conventional diagnoses represent.
Diabesity, in its various forms, is the most common illness of the developed world, in adults as well as in children, and I personally consider it to be our health public enemy number one. This condition which virtually did not exist anywhere in the world prior to the commencement of the industrial revolution has recently started spreading even into the developing world, an aggregation that is manifested into a massive global problem and undoubtedly a principal burden on worldwide health expenditure. Unfortunately it appears that this global epidemic keeps on spreading, evidently because the current approach to prevention and treatment is inadequate.
Diabesity is a leading cause of many contemporary chronic diseases and those who suffer from this condition are at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, dementia, hypertension, cancer, kidney failure and blindness. Furthermore, damage to the nervous system may also affects the majority of diabetes sufferers and may lead to loss of sensation in their extremities, reduced metabolism, carpal tunnel syndrome, sexual dysfunction and other problems with their nervous system.
A question that we should be asking ourselves is why diabesity, a condition that once was very rare, has become such an epidemic, why does it appear that global health systems are failing in coping with the rapid advancement of this condition, and more importantly, which new approaches should be adopted to eradicate this condition more effectively.
Unfortunately, it appears that very few healthcare professionals seem to be tackling these questions head-on and many of those who do, seem to focus on the treatment of the symptoms or risk factors, rather than concentrating on finding the causes and engaging in prevention.
This means that in practical terms, currently, most of the medical profession’s efforts seem to be directed at treatments that lower blood sugar (anti-diabetes drugs and insulin), lower hypertension (anti-hypertensive drugs amongst which Ace Inhibiters and Beta Blockers are very popular), lower cholesterol (statins) and thin the blood (mostly aspirin), whilst often neglecting to ask the more important question, which is, what are the root causes of all these disorders?
The answer however is very simple and therefore the solution to the global epidemic is quite straight forward as well. All of these disorders are simply downstream symptoms that are a result of poor diet and lifestyle, and exposure to environmental toxins that adversely interact with our individual genetic susceptibilities. If we can change these, we can eradicate diabesity.
The use of surgical intervention or prescription medicine in the treatment of symptoms such as insulin resistance, hypertension, high cholesterol and other complications resulting from diabesity is tantamount to attempting to mop the floor whilst the bath is overflowing. A more practical solution would be to stop the flooding by simply turning off the water. In relation to diabesity, that would mean treating the root sources which are responsible for the causes of the causes of the disease.
The real solution to diabesity is based on a comprehensive lifestyle change which heals the 7 core physiological processes in our body. This includes a healthier diet (including dietary supplements), improved management of how we deal with stress and increased physical activity. This is the only solution and I will endeavour to guide you through it and propose a practical programme to suit your needs. I will also tell you why conventional treatments are not a good long term solution and how as a matter of fact, in the long run, they are likely to make your condition worse.
By following my programme you will witness your lifelong health symptoms diminish in a matter of weeks and you are likely to feel improvement in a matter of days. This is the best programme to transform your diabesity into a healthy drug-free way of living.
