A growing number of people are suffering from the condition known as type 2 diabetes, a condition where the cells are insulin resistant, resulting in high levels of glucose in the blood.
This condition is different from type 1 diabetes, which is when the pancreas stops producing enough insulin to deal with the glucose in the bloodstream and get it to the cells.
Type 2 diabetes is generally easier to treat with diet changes and exercise. Rarely is extra insulin needed to control type 2 diabetes. People are beginning to learn how to treat diabetes by juicing.
Several vegetables have been found to contain insulin in a form that is different from that produced by the human body. Sometimes this insulin will work to transport glucose into the cells when our own insulin will not.
The fastest and best method of introducing this plant insulin into the body is consuming it in fresh juice from the following vegetables in any combination: asparagus, celery, cabbage, carrot, garlic, ginger, leek, parsley, pumpkin, and beet. Many of these juices also contain higher concentrations of silicon, which works to support the pancreas and help it produce insulin.
Most fruit juices are too high in sugars to be useful, or even safe, for people with diabetes to consume. These juices will cause the blood glucose level to rise, which will trigger a spike in insulin levels as well. The complications associated with diabetes can be made worse in a very short time frame by consuming fruit juices.
Treatment for diabetes often involves drugs that work to regulate the amount of insulin the body produces. These medications to nothing to help the problem of the cells being insulin resistant, which is the most common cause of diabetes. Vegetable juices can help to boost the insulin level in the blood to reduce the blood glucose levels. These juices also contain other enzymes and hormones that react with the glucose in the bloodstream to filter it out without forming the type of bond that creates an excess of triglycerides, a type of fat, in the blood the way high levels of insulin can do.
Other lifestyle changes are normally prescribed as well when a person is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Changes in diet that limit the amount of sweet sugars and complex carbohydrates that will be broken down into sugars, including glucose, and exercise are usually recommended by medical professionals. With careful monitoring by medical professionals, it is possible to learn how to treat diabetes by juicing certain vegetables rather than by taking medications.
