Type 2 diabetes in the United States has tripled since the 1980’s, where researchers have estimated that one in three Americans will have diabetes by 2050. More than one-third of American adults are obese and one in three Medicare dollars are spent on issues relating to diabetes. Unfortunately, these numbers continue to increase.
The sequence of health complications associated with insulin resistance, obesity and diabetes are characterized as the underlying cause of the majority of heart disease, cancer and premature death in the world. According to research, however, these conditions are preventable and reversible.
Both obesity and diabetes are preventable and reversible with proper lifestyle changes and a balanced diet and nutrition. On average, people consume approximately 152 pounds of sugar and 146 pounds of flour every year. The consumption of food high on refined sugar and flour can have a drastic effect on a person’s overall health and wellness.
When you remove foods that are causing disease from your diet and exchange them for nutritious foods, disorders such as diabetes, can be reversed, even in patients with obesity. The following seven strategies can be implemented every day with patients to prevent, treat and reverse insulin resistance, obesity and type 2 diabetes without the use of drugs and surgery.
