Most people don’t know, but having high blood sugar is one of the primary causes of aging and disease.
- Of course, it causes diseases such as diabetes — but also heart disease, high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction and many others.
- If also causes Alzheimer’s. In fact, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia are now classified as type 3 diabetes.
- High blood sugar also causes hair loss, wrinkles, muscle loss, fat gain and other “vanity” related problems that make you look and feel older.
Now the real problem is that most people, including doctors,… are misinformed and confused about the REAL causes of high blood sugar and diabetes and that’s what today’s short article will reveal to you.
In fact, you’ll also discover how to avoid and even reverse diabetes.
Before I begin, I have to point out that genetics always plays a big role in everything. Especially when it comes to type 1 diabetes.
However, with that said — everything else can be avoided as it relates to high blood sugar and type 2 and 3 diabetes.
Now, the primary reason for blood sugar problems is simply due to hormonal imbalances. This includes your sex hormones — such as testosterone, estrogens and similar.
In addition to stress hormones like Cortisol, thyroid and adrenal hormones.
And yes, all of these hormones get worse as we age and yes, all of these hormones CAN easily be improved at ANY age.
So, please don’t worry if you have “bad” genetics or a “family history” of diabetes like I do … or you’re “older” and think you can’t make any improvements and it’s all “downhill”.
In over 25 years, I’ve NEVER had a single person, patient or client that I didn’t improve their blood sugar levels. This even includes those with genetic Type 1 diabetes.
When you know how the body works and the “secrets” to fixing health problems – anything and everything is possible.
Two Clinically Proven Ways
So there are 2 specific things you need to do to improve your blood sugar levels, so you can avoid and even reverse diabetes.
The FIRST is you want to lower your blood sugar to healthy levels. You obviously do NOT want “high” blood sugar because that’s the major problem.
However, you also do NOT want “low” blood sugar because that causes negative hormonal changes by increasing stress hormones such as cortisol, which is KNOWN to cause diabetes and insulin resistance.
Which brings me to your SECOND goal and that’s to improve INSULIN SENSITIVITY.
Most people never talk about insulin resistance and insulin sensitivity, but this is the underlying cause of blood sugar problems.
Simply stated, when you eat foods that increase your blood sugar, your pancreas secretes insulin to lower it back down to normal, healthy levels.
BUT, if your receptors have REDUCED sensitivity to the insulin and thus, they’ve become “resistant”,… your body will now have to produce a LOT MORE insulin to lower your blood sugar and THIS ends up causing all the problems.
So what you want to do are 3 simple things:
Step 1 – LOWER BLOOD SUGAR to healthy ranges.
This is done primarily through your diet:
- Lower your simple sugars and eat more complex carbs.
- Have protein, healthy fats and fiber with all of your meals.
- Eat smaller meals, but more often.
These 3 simple “eating” tactics keeps your blood sugar stable – not high or low.
Step 2 – IMPROVE INSULIN SENSITIVITY to reduce insulin secretion.
This is done primarily through exercise:
- Build more muscle by lifting weights – cables, dumbbells, machines, your own body weight, etc.
- Do cardiovascular exercise — fast walking and rebounding are my favorites.
The more you exercise and more muscle you have, the more your body can burn and utilize the sugar. The end result is better insulin sensitivity.
Step 3 – TAKE SPECIFIC NUTRIENTS that help lower blood sugar AND improve insulin sensitivity at the same time.
Let’s face it, most of us do NOT eat perfectly, all the time. And even if we did, the foods we have these days are lacking in many of the essential nutrients that our body requires to function at optimal levels.
The good news is that there are specific herbs, vitamins and minerals that are clinically proven to help lower your blood sugar and increase insulin sensitivity at the same time.
You’ll get the biggest and fastest improvements, with the least amount of effort when taking these specific nutrients with an improved diet and exercise plan.
In fact, you can copy the same formula my uncle used since 2001 to:
- lower his blood sugar
- reverse his diabetes
- get off his medications
- and even lose 34 lbs of fat.
