For the past few Health Tips we have been conducting a little contest between the “wisdom of this World” and the “wisdom of God”. This week I would like us to evaluate the way the “world’s wisdom” deals with diabetes. The Bible tells us:
If a person is suffering with elevated blood sugar levels or Type-2 diabetes, does the doctor seek out the cause, eliminate that cause, and see blood sugar numbers return to normal naturally and remain normal? Or rather does the doctor deal with the symptom of high blood sugar numbers by prescribing insulin or another drug, which often leads to complications and further physical breakdown as the diabetic condition continues to worsen? You have already learned in previous Health Tips that most doctors treat symptoms rather than causes for cancer and arthritis. Do you think the medical community's approach to diabetes is any different? I’m afraid not!
Are We “Winning the War” on Diabetes?In spite of over $218 billion spent annually on diabetes research (in search of what the medical and pharmaceutical industries call a cure), the cost of treating diabetes continues to rise – and over 2 million new people are diagnosed with diabetes each year. Currently, approximately 30 million children and adults — over 8% of the population — have diabetes and these numbers are rising rapidly. The American Diabetic Association is constantly asking for donations to support diabetic research, research that they say will hopefully one day lead to a cure. I think it is a fair question to ask:
Does a Cure For Type 2 Diabetes Already Exist?Guess what? The cause and cure for Type 2 diabetes has already been found! You say, “Where can I find it?” My friend the cause and cure for diabetes can be found right underneath the nose of every Type 2 diabetic. It is found on the dinner plate! Diabetes is caused by placing things into the body that God never intended, along with failure to exercise. But if a cure for diabetes has already been found, and been proven to work in thousands of diabetics, why have the medical community and the American Diabetic Association not informed the citizens of this cure? The answer is a very simple one: Follow the money trail! Some 10% of all health care dollars in the United States and 25% of all Medicare dollars are spent on the care and treatment of people with diabetes.
Diabetes is Big Business!If a cure for diabetes was acknowledged as having been found, and that cure shared with the American people and applied, the medical and pharmaceutical industries would lose in excess of $218 billion in annual income. Those in the research community would lose multiple billions in research grant dollars and the American Diabetic Association would cease to have a purpose for its very existence.
Diabetes: Preventable and Almost Always ReversibleObviously, the symptomatic approach to diabetes does not eliminate the CAUSE, while drugs and insulin only temporarily deal with the high blood sugar condition without getting rid of the diabetes. This is obvious as people have to return to the doctor again and again for evaluation and treatment as the condition deteriorates. What if there was a way to get rid of Type 2 diabetes permanently and never have need of a doctor or insulin ever again or have a concern for eyesight loss or limb amputation? The key to getting rid of the “symptom” of diabetes is to eliminate the “CAUSE” of diabetes. That is the Biblical solution! Eliminate the CAUSE so that: "the curse causeless shall not come." (Proverbs 26:2) Every physical problem has a CAUSE... so let's zero-in on the CAUSE of Type 2 diabetes.
The Cause of Type-2 DiabetesA healthy cell membrane allows vital nutrients and fuel to pass into the cell while ushering toxins and waste products out of the cell, thus maintaining a healthy balance inside and outside the cell so that it can produce good energy and function as designed by God. In order to construct healthy cell membranes the cells need the nutrients and good fats found in plant source foods along with some Omega-3 fatty acids. These foods keep the insulin-glucose pathways into the cell functioning normally so that insulin can easily slip just the right amount of sugar into the cell to satisfy its energy needs. Sadly, the Standard American Diet (SAD) does not provide the nutrients and healthy fats necessary in maintaining healthy cell membranes. Rather, the SAD with an over abundance of unhealthy animal fats and hydrogenated fats, slowly clogs the cell membranes, creating a blocking action for the nutrients entering and wastes exiting the cell. As these membranes fill with unhealthy fats, the blood sugars needed by the cells are hindered from entering the cell. Because of this blocking action, blood sugar levels begin to climb as sugar backs up into the blood. This also causes blood insulin levels to rise. This rise is a hormonal response to the starving cell’s need of sugar. Billions of research dollars are spent annually in an effort to find a way to unblock this blocking action of the unhealthy fats while multiple billions more are spent on drugs designed to force the sugar past this blocking action. Is there a better solution? Absolutely!
Reverse Diabetes With A Plant-Based DietHere at Hallelujah Acres, over the past 23-plus years, hundreds have written to share, or in seminars publicly proclaim, that after adopting the Hallelujah Diet, their Type 2 diabetes simply, and in most cases disappeared in anywhere from four days to four months. Read diabetes testimonies here! One of our Health Ministers reported that after being insulin dependent for over 50 years, he was off insulin and blood sugar readings were normal within just two months of making the diet and lifestyle change. How can this be? Let’s find out …
How a Plant-based Diet Reverses DiabetesAs we said earlier, the cause of Type 2 diabetes is almost always the blocking action of unhealthy fats. These fats prevent the insulin the body is already producing from reaching the insulin receptors within the cell. This causes blood sugar levels to rise, and in an attempt to lower this rise, doctors prescribe additional insulin. This additional insulin — derived from pigs by the way — doesn’t solve the blood sugar problem, but only exacerbates the problem. Some doctors (for reasons inexplicable to me) then prescribe a high protein diet, containing lots of animal fats, which further complicates the problem by adding more blocking fat. Ironically, the cause of Type-2 diabetes is not insufficient insulin, because in most instances the Type-2 diabetic is already producing more insulin than the non-diabetic. And... get ready for this one... Type-2 diabetes is not caused by the consumption of sugar, either! Sugar aggravates an already existing diabetic problem, but sugar is not the root cause.
The SolutionStop the intake of all animal source foods containing fat (they all contain it), along with all products containing trans-fats, and switch to a 100% plant-based diet. In addition to the diet change, begin exercising daily (an imperative if we want to reverse a diabetic condition). As the person stops placing all these unhealthy fats into their body and starts a 100% plant-based diet (with an abundance of it being raw), the fat that was blocking the insulin begins to sloth off the cells and almost like magic, within anywhere from a few days to a few months, blood sugar levels for most Type 2 diabetics will begin to normalize — and soon there will be no more need for additional insulin. Hallelujah! How Is The World's Wisdom Doing? As for the contest between the “World’s Wisdom” and “God’s Wisdom” who do you think is winning the contest? As I’ve said for the past several weeks, I feel like the “World’s Wisdom” is being represented by today’s Goliath (the medical and drug industry along with various Foundations), but little David (George Malkmus) using “God’s Wisdom” in these Health Tips may have struck the knockout blow. Write me and let me know who you think is winning the contest!
Next week, the good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high we will return with another exciting issue of the Hallelujah Health Tip. Trust you will join us and that you will share these Health Tips with friends and loved ones.
