Diseases deserve their awful-sounding names: tuberculosis, fibromyalgia, cancer. No matter how you say them, they sound as bad as they are and make life worse than it ever should be.
There’s one particular disease out there with a growing, rippling effect around the globe. That’s because the number of people in the world who have diabetes is increasing with each passing year. The worldwide statistic for adults living with diabetes was 108 million in 1980. By 2014 that number had reached 422 million.
The Impact of Type 2 Diabetes
The majority have type 2 diabetes—the body makes insulin, but cells don’t use it effectively. That means blood sugar remains high, circulating throughout the body and causing chronic inflammation. Shockingly, it used to be a disease that only adults developed but now commonly affects children.
Type 2 diabetes is bad because it can damage eyes, kidneys, the heart, blood vessels and nerves, resulting in blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke or lower limb amputation. Diabetes is really bad.
Lifestyle changes, such as a proper diet and regular exercise to maintain a healthy weight, can be effective in preventing or reversing type 2 diabetes. So it just doesn’t make sense that more and more people are being diagnosed.
Or maybe it makes perfect sense when considering the worldwide embracement of poor nutrition: fatty fast foods, processed foods, sugar-filled foods and drinks! They are not natural, so consuming them on a regular basis creates unnatural side effects like chronic inflammation that can lead to the onset of type 2 diabetes.
A 2003 study published by the American Diabetes Association shows that people with type 2 diabetes have higher levels of inflammation, particularly with the presence of cytokines1: inflammatory chemicals often stored in fat tissue.
It’s a given that if you have—or are told to be at risk of—type 2 diabetes, lifestyle changes are necessary, mainly in regard to eating whole foods that are primarily plant-based. For example, dark, leafy green vegetables are an ideal food to combat inflammation.
BarleyLife delivers anti-inflammatory properties in the natural balance of nutrients found in barley grass, concentrated into a unique juice powder. The body thrives on a daily supply of antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, minerals and vitamins, especially when these nutrients come from a plant-based source as rich as barley grass.
AIMega contains omega-3 essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce but requires to reduce inflammation. AIMega’s balanced 2:1 ratio of omega-3 and -6 from organic seed oils contribute to the healthy membrane structure and function of every cell.
Herbal Fiberblend or fit ’n fiber provide the anti-inflammatory properties of fiber, which slows down digestion and the release of glucose into the blood. Additionally, insulin is not required to digest fiber, so blood sugar levels are not spiked. A high-fiber intake makes the stomach feel full for a long time, helping to maintain a healthy weight.
GlucoChrom offers a natural way to increase the effective action of insulin, which channels blood sugar where it belongs: into cells that use glucose as an energy source, not a source of inflammation. The GlucoChrom combination of chromium, vanadium citrate, Gymnema sylvestre leaf extract and bitter melon fruit also helps to metabolize carbohydrates and fats, which assists with weight management.
Diabetes is bad, but there are natural ways to combat the bad and make it better. AIM leads the natural way.
