Why Are Diabetics Not Being Told The TRUTH?

The current treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes is a complete disaster. Plus the current ‘dietary dogma’ that includes a heavy grain-based diet – is driving more and more people to insulin resistance and diabetes.

Why are Diabetics NOT being told the truth? Perhaps because it’s so influenced by financial interests and old dietary dogma. Any successful treatment should include recommending real food without sugar and carbs to naturally lower blood sugar and insulin response.

Putting sugar-rich desserts and cakes on the cover of “Diabetic Living” magazines (top image) is shocking in our opinion. The image here was taken from a simple Google image search and the covers of many of the magazine issues feature carb-heavy meals and desserts. It should be as unthinkable as recommending smoking on the cover of a lung disease magazine.

Some Dietitians are Appalled!

Coenzyme Q10: The Body’s Spark Plug

 

Many of us know very little about the goings on inside our cars – we turn the key and the engine starts, right? Are you aware that while there are many important aspects to having a smooth running engine, a primary condition to having your car start when you turn the key is having good clean spark plugs? Just as a car can’t run without an initial spark, without adequate ‘spark’ the human body just can’t get going either. When we are running short of important ingredients our body gets sluggish and is hard to get going.

Well if they are so important, I have a question to ask: When was the last time you looked after the spark plugs in your body? Where are these ‘spark plugs’ you may be asking.

 “Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) could be considered the spark plug of life due to its key role in energy production.”

According to a NZ research based company “Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) could be considered the spark plug of life due to its key role in energy production.” How about that! Dr. Karl Folkers (1906 – 1997) left a legacy of over 66 years of outstanding research in organic and biological chemistry. He believed that a 25% deficiency in the body’s CoQ10 levels is enough to cause illness, while a deficiency of 75% or more can lead to death.  Although coenzyme Q10 is normally produced by the human body, medical institutes such as the Mayo Clinic recommend increasing the dietary intake of CoQ10 (depending on the cause of the CoQ10 deficiency), along with supplementation of it and the other vitamins and minerals needed to produce or utilize CoQ10.

Bruce Ames, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of California, Berkeley, also presents a hypothesis that implies micronutrient deficiency may eventually deteriorate the quality of whole human cell health. A portion of Professor Ames’ abstract reads as follows:

Inadequate dietary intakes of vitamins and minerals are widespread, most likely due to excessive consumption of energy-rich, micronutrient-poor, refined food. Inadequate intakes may result in chronic metabolic disruption, including mitochondrial decay. Deficiencies in many micronutrients cause DNA damage, such as chromosome breaks, in cultured human cells or in vivo. Some of these deficiencies also cause mitochondrial decay with oxidant leakage and cellular aging and are associated with late onset diseases such as cancer.
