Holistic Treatment Of Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes, Natural Healing
Diabetes has been around for millennia and it has only been recently that doctors and scientists have been able to develop medications to control the symptoms by lowering the average blood sugar. Before that, those with symptoms of diabetes needed to rely on holistic practitioners to help them stay healthy.

Holistic practitioners take a holistic approach in treating patients, and in a partnership fashion with those patients attempt to use any and all available and safe treatments to restore the patient to wellness, including, mind, body and soul.

Hyperglycemia vs Hypoglycemia

Diabetes
There are many factors that go into the absolute value of your blood sugar—how much you eat, what kinds of food you eat, and how much you exercise, for example. When the blood sugar goes up in a normal person, the Islet cells in the pancreas put out insulin to lower the blood sugar to normal values. When food is taken in, the blood sugar goes back up. The idea is to keep the blood sugar level within a specific range, usually 80-180 mg/dL. Diabetics have a more difficult time controlling their blood sugar, because either not enough insulin is made or because the cells have become resistant to insulin, leaving sugar inside the bloodstream that can rise to dangerous levels. This is why exercise, diet, and medications are used…

Emotional Eating and Diabetes

Diabetes, Diet, Stress Management
Is there any link between emotional eating, also called stress eating, and diabetes? Does one lead to the other? Can you have one without the other? The Mayo Clinic tells us that type II diabetes "... develops when the body becomes resistant to insulin or when the pancreas stops producing enough insulin." They then mention that being overweight or obese can contribute to the development of this health issue. Not everyone turns to food in order to deal with their emotions. However, the day your doctor sits you down and reveals that you have type II diabetes, if you are the type of person that eats for emotional reasons, that prognosis could certainly trigger an unhealthy binge eating episode. In this way, the development of diabetes can cause a negative…

This Can Cause Emotional Eating

Diabetes, Diet, Weight gain
If you have attempted to stifle sorrow or celebrate joy by eating, you know what mood-based eating is all about. It is normal to celebrate your birthday with some cake and ice cream, but emotional eating gets out of control when it happens most of the time. This can lead to health problems like overweight and obesity, diabetes and heart problems, and brain-based issues like stress, anxiety and depression. People who don't have a problem with emotional eating tend to believe it is caused by a simple lack of self-control. The emotional eater should just "toughen up", and stop overeating as a response to feelings rather than hunger. That approach leads to no resolution, because people with eating disorders are sometimes the most dedicated to solving their problems. They go…
