I have been reading work of several researchers who feel that the type 2 diabetes epidemic being experienced by the modern world has nothing to do with carbohydrate consumption. They claim that the cells can’t respond to insulin due to the cell membrane being corrupted by animal products and over-consumption of processed fats. It is claimed that a vegan diet will help reverse most type 2 diabetic blood sugar control problems. There are legitimate studies that prove that a vegan diet is much more effective than the diet recommended by the American Diabetes Association. Of course, your doctor would much rather put you on an assortment of prescribed pills rather than endorse eating an animal free diet. To be on the safe side, talk to your doctor ANYWAY and hear what they have to say about this radical method of healing type 2 diabetes.
The researcher who has caught my attention the most is Dr. Neal Barnard. Barnard is head of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). He has written several books on diabetes and heart disease and feels that both diseases could be turned around simply by eliminating all meat, dairy and eggs from the diet. If you are serious about treating your disease effectively, I recommend some of his lectures that can be found on YouTube. Dr. Neal Barnard has boasted that a low-fat vegan diet free of meat, dairy and other animal products can help people with Type 2 diabetes cut their blood sugars, improve their insulin sensitivity and reduce, if not eliminate, their need for medications. The ultimate goal of those who suffer from insulin resistance is to eventually get off of the prescription drugs that they presently need. If you listen carefully it will all start to make sense that carbohydrate metabolism is directly affected by the consumption of animals and animal fat and treating the insulin situation is NOT helping anyone to reverse their T2 diabetes.
So if you have a cholesterol problem, heart disease problem, pre-diabetes problem or any of the symptoms of these diseases than you should look seroiusly into vegan eating and all the benefits that are included. Do your own work and read what real vegans are saying about this healthy way of living. Your style of eating has to change or you will just get progressively worse year after year. Reducing the fats in your diet has shown great promise to those people who are really wishing to make a change in their health situation. Becoming a Vegan may really be an acceptable answer to this problem. This has got to be a better option than taking medications that you will have to take every day for the rest of your life. Two thirds of people with type 2 diabetes die from heart attack or stroke. People on the American Diabetes Association’s recommended diet experienced a reduction in blood sugar and weight loss and better cardiovascular health but not close to the extent that vegan-eaters experienced. Eating an alkaline vegan lifestyle heals diabetes
