To date, there is no known cure for diabetes. The good news is managing it can be done by changing your diet and embracing a healthy lifestyle. There are also drugs for the condition but they do not come cheap. What’s more, they tend to yield unfavorable side effects. Drugs — they deal with one problem but give you more of them in return!
If you are suffering from diabetes, you may already know that each and every mealtime poses a challenge. That’s because you need to carefully monitor everything that goes into your mouth in order to maintain normal blood sugar levels as well as to steer clear of all the complications of your health problem.
Did you know that there’s a type of juice that is said to be very good for your condition? There’s a young man who actually overcame his diabetes with the help of this easy-to-make juice. If you’re excited to know what it is so that you may start consuming it and enjoy the wonderful impact it has on diabetes and your overall health, read on!
About 4 years ago, the said young man was diagnosed with diabetes as well as high blood pressure. It was by accident that these conditions were discovered by his doctor upon having a consultation due to the fact that he always felt thirsty, which is one of the common symptoms of diabetes.
Naturally, he was prescribed with all sorts of drugs meant to help deal with diabetes as well as to keep his high blood pressure in check. He was told that the regular administration of insulin was inevitable due to the fact that his pancreas was no longer in optimal shape to produce enough insulin, a hormone that facilitates the transport of sugar molecules from the blood and into the cells to be used as energy.
While it was true that the intake of prescribed drugs and pairing it with having a healthy lifestyle allowed him to cope with his condition, the problem continued to progress. For instance, his cholesterol levels went on to increase and his blood pressure went up to 150/100. What’s more, new maladies showed up and bugged him too.
However, the man was determined to combat his health problems and win back his life through an all-natural method, and that is through the consumption of raw fruits and vegetables. His fortitude to combat his problems without drugs came one day when, after doing his 2013 New Year resolution, he switched on the TV and chanced upon The Edge of Science.
During that particular episode, a guest named Dr. John Zirdum talked about how his healthy lifestyle had changed his life for the better — by living on raw foods for 12 long years. Soon after the show was done, the man who was fed up with taking drugs for his diabetes and high blood pressure immediately purchased a blender and started consuming nothing but raw foods. The results, according to him, were downright fantastic!
It didn’t take long before he realized that his blood sugar levels had considerably dropped. Eventually, he stopped administering insulin as he thought that maintaining his newfound diet would be enough to keep increased blood sugar levels in check. The man also started losing a lot of excess pounds, something which is good for both diabetes and high blood pressure. In fact, he lost up to 11 kilograms 25 days into the raw food diet.
Ready to know what particular juice this man consumed? Here’s the recipe:
- 5 kiwis
- 2 apples
- 2 bananas
- A handful of kale
- 1/2 liter of water
- Peel the bananas and kiwis.
- Chop everything up and place in the blender together with your 1/2 liter of water.
- Blend until smooth.
That’s it! You should consume half of the juice in the morning before having your breakfast. The rest should be consumed later on during the day.
