In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I'm going to talk about diabetes and insulin resistance. Unfortunately the statistics show that 25 million Americans are diabetic and 79 millions are pre-diabetic. Obesity is a major driven force for insulin resistance and is the main source of hypertension and diabetes. There are two types of diabetes:
Type two diabetes usually happens in older people and obese people when the body produces more insulin than what it needs. The blood needs insulin to convert sugar to fat and take sugar out of the blood and store it as fat somewhere in the body. In type 2 diabetes the blood will no longer convert sugar into fat; therefore the body sugar level stays relatively high. Obesity in abdominal area makes one resistant to insulin.
Sometimes diabetes in older people is caused by nervous system disorder. Excessively nervous and agitated people over a period of time damage their nervous system tissues and the brain can no longer receive the signals from the body to release insulin in time in order to convert sugar in blood to fatty tissues. It can be really dangerous when the sugar cannot be pulled it out of blood supply and as a result the sugar content in blood remains high. The high sugar doesn’t allow your blood supply to deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to other organs in the body. Excessive sugar in the blood also reduces the removal of toxins from the organs and hence will result in inflammation and infection. Science proves that raw superfoods (green superfoods, herb superfoods, organic raw honey, goji berries, organic raw cacao beans, avocado, fruits and nuts) can cure diabetes. Maintaining a healthy weight, regular exercise, relaxation and eating live organic raw food can prevent and recover diabetes at any age.
