Diabetes occurs when blood sugar levels remain high, which in turn can cause blood vessel damage. As a result, the vital organs supplied by these vessels are also affected. Diabetes can lead to kidney failure, lower extremity amputations, vision loss, circulatory problems, and death.
Intensive drug therapy aimed at lowering blood sugar levels has been proven ineffective in treating the disease and is sometimes even life-threatening. However, research studies have shown that a plant-based diet, along with significant lifestyle changes, can help control and even reverse this disease.
Patients with type 2 diabetes should concentrate on balancing the amounts of "insulinum" present (the hormone that helps the cells in the body take up glucose from the blood). The action of this hormone is impaired if too much fat is stored in the muscle cells, the result of refined carbohydrates, organic pollutants, inflammation in the body, and a lack of physical activity.
A vegan or vegetarian diet helps restore the function of "insulinhormone", lowers blood sugar levels, helps achieve and maintain a healthy BMI (Body Mass Index), and reduces the impact of organic pollutants and inflammation on our body.
