Diabetes is a disease state that is particularly responsive to natural methods. I am often asked, ”can you reverse diabetes?” From the perspective of pure naturopathy diabetes is a disease state that is most often completely reversible. Pure naturopathy is entirely focused on getting you well once and for all, not just ‘managing’ your condition. Diabetes is simply the inability of the organism to effectively handle carbohydrate metabolism. This means if you are diabetic you cannot digest and utilize the starches in your diet. This process is usually handled by the pancreas, which secretes insulin as required. When the pancreas is overstressed from eating wrong food, mainly starches and proteins, or the over-consumption of good food, the patient develops some alarming symptoms.
Symptoms of diabetes include:
- Excess of sugar in the blood
- Abnormal thirst
- Excessive urination
- Loss of weight
- Skin rashes and itching
- Diabetic Coma
Long-term effects of diabetes include:
- Eye cataracts
Diabetes is a disease of civilisation caused by a derangement of normal living habits or an unsuitable lifestyle. Whilst diet is the number one factor we look to when assisting someone with diabetes to regain their health, we must also take into consideration other lifestyle factors such as cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, drug use (both recreational and pharmaceutical), physical excesses, mental stress and spinal injuries if we are to attain a complete return to health.
