Are You Struggling to Control Your Blood Sugar Level?
Personally, I don’t regard Type 2 diabetes as a disease. I regard it as a disorder of our metabolic function. The American diet is primarily one of carbohydrates and sugars. As we have maligned the quality and value of fats, Americans live primarily on high carbohydrate diets. Obviously this is going to cause a blood sugar spike. Since we produce insulin while we have a high blood sugar spike, it is not regarded as Type 1 diabetes so it is referred to as Type 2. Refer to my diet on my website at www.TerryTalksNutrition.com . You’ll find it on the left hand column of the home page. Just click on “Terry’s Diet”. This diet drastically reduces carbohydrates and favors healthy fats, yes saturated fats, which are required for a healthy heart, liver and kidney function. Our so called fat free lifestyle in America has made everyone fatter. 75% of the American population is either overweight or obese. What we need to control Type 2 diabetes is not a drug but a change of diet, and perhaps supporting the diet with two herbs that have no side effects and have been clinically proven to be more effective than Metformin. These two herbs are Purslane and Mulberry leaf extract. Use them together for best results.
