If you have type 2 diabetes, you've probably heard it all already…
The insidious condition can cause:
- An increased risk of nearly every type of cancer
- Nerve damage and sores that can lead to amputation
- Heart disease
- Erectile dysfunction
- Kidney damage
- Cataracts and/or glaucoma that leads to blindness
The list looks like a certain death sentence.
And diabetes can be... if you don't take care of yourself.
But it's not hopeless.
Diabetes is 100 PERCENT REVERSIBLE—no matter how old you are.
And today, I’ll give you exactly what you need to do it…naturally.
You don't need diabetes drugs
If you've already looked into reversing diabetes or pre-diabetes, you've probably seen or heard about insulin resistance.
It's a root cause of the condition because it raises your blood sugar levels to astronomical heights.
And yes, you absolutely should work on that…
But a new study makes it clear there’s ONE CHANGE you can make that will do WONDERS in reversing diabetes and pre-diabetes.
Best of all, it doesn't matter how old you are…
You can reverse diabetes no matter what your age!
This latest study investigated seniors over 60 with pre-diabetes for 12 years. Most of them maintained their pre-diabetic state.
But the researchers noted one obvious trend:
- • Obesity accelerated diabetes, while losing weight reversed diabetes; and
- • Those who lost weight also saw their blood pressure drop and their risk for heart disease plummet.
That means NOTHING is better equipped to DEFEAT type 2 diabetes than two, simple things: diet and exercise.
I've been working with patients for decades -- those WITH diabetes and others that are just trying to lose weight…
And let me tell you, I have not seen anything work better for weight loss than the Paleo (A.K.A. Caveman) Diet.
The diet itself is simple to follow, which is one of the reasons it's so successful. All you need to do is eat like your ancestors.
That means, focus on eating what was available to them -- primarily meat, vegetables, seeds, nuts, healthy oils, and fruit (but only as a treat). This is what your body is used to and was built to use.
Processed foods should be eliminated completely and any sugar you ingest should only be small amounts from fruit.
You'll find that by making vegetables a large portion of your meal that you'll naturally eat, and lose weight.
The other half of the formula is, of course, exercise. For some, this is even harder to stick to than a diet. But you don't need to make it difficult. You just need to be consistent. Getting your heart rate up for at least 30 minutes a day is all you need!
You don't need to get to the gym to run on a treadmill if that’s not your thing. In fact, you don't need to run at all. Low impact exercises like walking at a brisk pace, biking, and even swimming can help you MELT the pounds off.
One, final “backup” plan
Blood sugar is still a large part of diabetes. So if you're having difficulty with it despite changing your diet and exercise, try adding tart cherry to your regimen.
Tart cherry's antioxidants, anthocyanins, are believed to be at the center of their ability to control insulin, and help lower your blood sugar levels. In studies, significant drops were seen in not only weight, but also blood sugar and blood pressure levels—after just six weeks.
Plus, it can even help you sleep better at night!
Now, drinking tart cherry juice shouldn't be the only way you try to reverse diabetes, but it certainly can help. Diet and exercise remain the best ways to help you ditch diabetes ONCE AND FOR ALL – no matter what your age.
