If diabetes is 90% preventable, what will help?
Type 2 diabetics, aware of the New England Journal of Medicine published reports, know that diabetes is 90% preventable.
It is hard enough to be a type 2 diabetic, but when you find out that most of today’s processed food aggravates or caused your condition, it’s even harder.(The New England Journal of Medicine September 13, 2001; 345)
Let’s get to “12 Reasons You Might Need Supplements.”
Today, in the era of Holistic Medicine, proper supplemental nutrition Reversirol is not in competition with traditional medical approaches for controlling diabetes.
Instead, they should be mutually suportive:
12 Reasons Why You Might Need Supplements:
1. If you are over fifty years old, you know that your body loses its ability to fully absorb nutrients, particularly chromium, iron, calcium and zinc. Fiber intake is often lower. This alone is reason enough to seek supplement support.
2. If you are honest about your eating habits, you, and over 90% of the population doesn’t eat the way the Food Pyramid Guide suggests. You can see the need to supplement your diet with high-quality whole food supplements.
3. If you drink Coke or Pepsi, be aware that “soda sucks chromium out of your system,” and chromium is an essential mineral that helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels and minimize the onset of diabetes (Beijing Medical University study, Harvard School of Public Health).
4. If you shop at a grocery store, be aware that many of the Supermarket Foods consist of refined high-fat, high-sugar (hhigh fructose corn syrup). This diet alone contributes to major nutrient deficiencies and diabetic problems.
5. Your favorite highly processed foods often see drastically reduced nutrient content. Processors use highly refined wheat to make white flour that has removed over 80% of its magnesium, 70-80% of its zinc, 87% of its chromium, 88% of its manganese and 50% of its cobalt. Good grief!
6. Food additives can deplete nutrients. Thousands of artificial flavors, colors, dough conditioners, stabilizers and preservatives are added to many foods. While some are harmless and may increase the value of food, many are toxic and can deplete the body of nutrients.
7. Because we eat so much refined, low-quality food loaded with additives, our digestion is impaired. This further impairs nutrient absorption and increases nutritional needs.
8. Stress! This single most evil problem is not unusual to many of us. Stress can deplete your energy, cause clinical depression, lead to acceleration of aging process and degenerative diseases. The symptoms of stress include fatigue, depression, panic, anxiety, loss of appetite, and insomnia. Depression can be a result of high blood sugar. There are natural supplements that aid in the natural “production of serotonin” -a naturally occurring chemical to prevent depression.
