Diabetes has become a true epidemic in our society worldwide. If to this we add the unstoppable escalation of problems of hypertension, kidney problems, heart disease, blindness, amputations, and overweight related to diabetes, we quickly understand that it is a great health problem that is not well controlled.
If you are reading this, you may have diabetes and are diagnosed, but you may have diabetes or prediabetes and you still don’t know it., which is another of the great problems of this imbalance … sometimes we give importance to being overweight, hypertension or depression, but unfortunately it is not related to the glucose and insulin imbalance that you are probably already suffering from. In any case, if you are diabetic, it probably types 2, since 95% of diabetes cases are type 2. If you are in the small group of type 1 diabetics and your case is autoimmune, this article is also for you Whatever your health problem is: autoimmune, nutritional, nervous, or multifactorial, the most important thing will be that you become aware and aware of what is happening in your body in order to participate actively in your recovery.
If you have been with diabetes for years and years on medication, you may believe that your glucose and insulin imbalance is under control. It is not like that, I think. If you need Metformin for glucose control, statins, anticoagulants, and many other medications so that the symptoms of your problem do not surface, it is that your health continues to suffer the same or greater imbalance for years. If, in addition to taking several medications daily (with their side effects), you are overweight and obese, have an unbalanced diet, smoke, sleep poorly, have mood problems and hormonal problems, in my opinion, your health is not controlled at all. But the good news is that you can control it and eliminate the root problem.

I have diabetes, what can I do?
Before continuing, I must tell you that I do not have the power to intervene in any way in medical treatment (that is, carried out with medicines) and it is not my intention either. So I do not advise you in this article, nor would I in my practice, that you alter the medication you are taking without the consent of your specialist or doctor responsible for your medication. or you can contact Adelaide Naturopath.
What I advise you is to work by focusing on your health, not just on your illness.
- Learn to manage your nutrients: vitamins, minerals, hydrates, proteins, fats …
- Learn to manage your diet: without addictions, without lack of control, with serenity.
- Learn to manage your emotions and nervous system: without anxiety, without stress, without mental loops, fear, or blocks on your own health.
- Drink enough water. Get your energy back.
- Learn to improve your habits: sleeping better, knowing how to rest, recognizing your needs …
- Take the necessary orthomolecular supplements, to help you throughout this process of change.
This, which occupies several points in writing, is actually logical, natural, and easy to achieve. I am not going to deny that it takes a few days to start with the first changes and discoveries, but in just 2 months the change can be abysmal and you can feel much better following a natural and simple process. If you get to this point, I advise you to celebrate it in style, because you will not depend on medications to live or you will reduce them to a minimum. You will also achieve a healthy and comfortable weight for you, you will reduce the risk of heart, hormonal, kidney, or autoimmune diseases that are much more complicated to solve and unfortunately irreversible in many cases. It is really worth a try because diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, amputation, and overweight in our society.
Indeed, this requires responsibility and interest, but whether we like it or not, we are responsible for our own lives and we do not obtain good results until we assume that responsibility.

What about my medications?
This change that I have explained to you is fully compatible with your current medication, but the objective is that in the end, you do not depend on the medication. What will happen is that in your next check-ups and control tests, your doctor may significantly reduce the medication, even to the point of withdrawing it in many cases. You will not need it because your glucose and insulin levels will be healthy and natural, which will mean a before and after in your quality of life.
Prediabetes and insulin resistance
They often ask me if diabetes is cured, to which I usually answer that sometimes yes and sometimes no, since it will depend on many factors, the damage produced in the body, the general state of health, etc. But in the case of prediabetes and insulin resistance, I have no doubt that if the body can be returned to a state of balance and the problem can be solved quickly if there is a predisposition. They are imbalances that are sometimes not given the importance they have, but a self-regulation problem between glucose and insulin levels in the blood has serious consequences for health, such as chronic exhaustion, thyroid problems, discouragement, insomnia, overweight, fluid retention, polycystic ovaries (PCOS), endometriosis, infertility, fatty liver, etc. If you dare to take control of your health and are tired of depending on medications, I can help you bring about the change you need. I assure you that the path is simple and enriching, without guilt or punishment, but with the love, serenity, and self-knowledge you need to take charge of your health.
