Jason Fung & The New Diabetes Revolution

I have been working with individuals with Type II Diabetes for 40 years.

During that time, I have seen mainstream medicine and dietetics wage war against those of us early pioneers who were saying that the way diabetes is being treated is not only wrong but it’s killing them, creating a premature demise.

Fortunately, things are finally changing and like most changes this one is happening from within. Those of us on the so-called fringe were easy to ignore, easy to ridicule, and easy to silence.

Now the same message, 40 years later, is coming from within their own ranks. Jason Fung is a Medical Doctor and Nephrologist, or Kidney Doctor, by specialty.

His wonderful book entitled The Diabetes Code and his educational efforts within the medical community are turning doctors away from the old paradigm and towards a new and better program.

Just like we have been doing for 40 years he is teaching them that diabetes has little to do with blood sugar and everything to do with insulin.

He is showing them that through strict carbohydrate consumption reduction as well is intermittent fasting, we can reverse the epidemic of Type II Diabetes. Our research center is in an ideal position, with our many decades of experience, to assist diabetics in slowly reversing their condition.

If you know someone with this dreaded condition share the information that there is now new hope from an old paradigm that still works as well today as it did when we introduced it many decades ago. Check back next week for more Healthy Nutrition Information.

Dr Whiting Keto Podcast

I was recently featured on a podcast with the Keto Island Boyz. Their primary focus is to spread the benefits and the concept of low carbohydrate moderate fat dieting. In Hawaii obesity is nearly 60% among native Hawaiians. The diet that they consume today, which was very different from their ancestors, is slowly killing those people by driving their insulin levels to dangerous highs. These are two guys who found the benefits of low carbohydrate dieting and now have recently began to introduce intermittent fasting into their programs as well. They are two really smart guys who simply want to help people free themselves from all the dangers of obesity and diabetes. I’m sure I will be guesting again in the near future.

Do diet sodas cause belly fat?

Do diet sodas cause belly fat? We have commented often for many years about diet sodas or soft drinks. It is now a proven fact that these diet sodas can have a negative effect on weight loss during dieting and in many instances can actually cause weight gain. The process by which this occurs is somewhat complicated and it involves the stimulation of insulin by the taste buds of something sweet.

The body does not have the wisdom to understand artificial sweeteners, so it perceives them as sugars, secreting insulin when they are ingested. The end result of this is an increase in insulin and a decrease in blood sugar or glucose. As this process continues cravings for real sugary foods increase. The elevated insulin causes the body not only to retain stored fat but also to retain excess water or fluid. While everyone is different, we have seen people actually gain weight while consuming three or more diet sodas per day. If you feel you must enjoy an occasional diet soda while dieting, try to always consume them with a meal that contains adequate protein. This will help to retard the fluid retention and weight gain properties associated with these drinks. If you wish to accelerate your weight loss, consider abstaining from these diet sodas at least through the initial phases of your weight loss program. You will likely be rewarded with a faster and more efficient weight loss result. Check back next week for more information about belly fat.

Type II Diabetes is Reversible

I first began my work with alternative medicine and nutrition in the arena of type II diabetes, hypoglycemia, and other insulin related disorders such as obesity. Over the years medicine has come a long way in their approach to these disorders. So much so that finally medicine is now acknowledging that these conditions are not disorders of excess blood sugar but rather disorders of excess insulin production. This is been the foundation of my work for the past 30+ years. I have gone from ridicule to tolerance and finally to acceptance.

For decades we have been approaching these conditions from the wrong end. If we focus our attention and efforts on controlling insulin production these conditions especially type II diabetes, can often be brought completely under control. The body produces insulin in response to sugar forming foods, which eventually convert to glucose or blood sugar. As the glucose rises in the blood, insulin is secreted from the pancreas to mobilize it and store it for later use. Over time this excess insulin production can lead to what we call receptor cell burnout. This is when the insulin receptor sites become desensitized in response to the constant elevation of insulin bombarding the cell. This condition is called insulin resistance. The more insulin resistance the higher the blood sugar levels will rise.

We can approach management of the situation in several ways. First and foremost dietary changes, which must include a drastic reduction in carbohydrates or sugar forming foods. This will naturally lower blood glucose levels and subsequently reduce insulin production. As insulin levels fall the receptor sites, over time, will begin to increase their sensitivity once again and will facilitate glucose transport with less insulin rather than more. The next step would be to introduce key nutrients that have been shown to help spare or modulate glucose as well as directly lower insulin levels. Key minerals would include chromium as well as vanadium. Herbal or plant extracts have also proven to be very beneficial. These would include cinnamon extract, bilberry, and others.

It is now believed that there are specific genes that are responsible for these disorders, especially type II diabetes. Once these are isolated it may be possible to alter them and make type II diabetes a disease of the past. In the meantime however, the best way to control blood sugar disorders is by addressing insulin levels. Medical scientists are now finally looking at the benefit of such things as intermediate fasting for controlling insulin production. For decades medicine has been mismanaging these diseases and causing many terrible side effects. Thankfully that time is changing and there is nothing but hope and promise in the years ahead.

Endorsed by Curves For Women

Having meet with many owners of Curves For Woman fitness center I can tell you that their business has literately been revived by introducing their members to the High Vitality Liquid Vitamin and the Blood Sugar Support Capsules offered through Phoenix Nutritionals.

We are seeing greater results in many different arenas. Members have more energy, sleep better, and as such, work out more regularly and with greater enthusiasm.

The Blood Sugar Support Formula is helping members to control their cravings for starch and sugary foods, which in turn is helping them to lose excess weight more easily.

This unique formula not only helps to control cravings, but as a result, members are seeing much more stable blood sugar and insulin levels. While it’s not specifically a weight loss formula I have seen greater results with this formula than with many so-called weight loss supplements. It is amazing to me how many of their members are actually nutrient deficient.

I have started giving them the Institute’s Nutrient Evaluation Test and the results are very revealing and sometimes worrisome. By adding the high vitality full-spectrum liquid I can further reduce appetite and cravings because often for the first time, their nutrient deficiencies no longer exist. I am sure Curves For Women Headquarters is taking note and slowing sending this message to every Curves owner because they know the others would see vast improvements and benefits that I have seen with their members.

Hangry Meaning

There is a new term that is rapidly becoming more popular and that is something called ‘hangry’, which is a combination of hunger and anger.

This can often be observed when people do not eat properly or they go long periods of time without eating. This sets up a situation where they become irritable, excitable, and react, oftentimes aggressively, because of it. So far researchers have focused on the psychological issues that hunger can produce and they certainly are valid, but there’s far more to the picture if we look deeper into the biochemical changes that occur during hunger. For many people prolonged hunger, even a few hours, can have a drastically negative effect upon their blood sugar. We know by studying diabetics and those with hypoglycemia that low blood sugar can produce a variety of symptoms including nervousness, shakiness, emotional swings, and even anger and aggression.

During periods of low blood sugar the body sees this situation as an acute danger. This in turn, causes the body to produce stress hormones such as adrenaline, which increases heart rate, respiration, and perspiration. Prolonged overstimulation of the stress hormones can eventually exhaust our adrenal glands, increasing the downward spiral during episodes of fluctuating blood sugar. If you are one of these individuals who experiences these symptoms if you’re unable to eat regularly, you should consider keeping something with you such as a mixed nuts. These will help keep your blood sugar stable until you can eat a proper meal once again. If you are a high stress individual this will only exacerbate your physiological and emotional response to blood sugar fluctuations. You should consider using a high stress multi nutrient formula to help support your central nervous system as well as the adrenal glands, keeping them strong.

Energy and Metabolism

Over the years here in our research Institute we have formulated a great deal of multivitamin formulas as well as specific targeted formulas for specialized needs. These would include healthy aging supplements, stress supplements, supplements for energy and metabolism, and of course full spectrum multivitamins. Our calcium formula is the only formulation to be shown to not only halt bone loss but to actually increase bone density over time. This was established in seven independent clinical studies around the world. Calcium supplements should also contain magnesium. Chelated magnesium is not only much higher absorbed but because you need less you have less of a chance of having gastrointestinal disturbances from taking it.

Osteoporosis treatment should include calcium with vitamin D, magnesium, and other key trace minerals necessary for uptake of calcium back to bone tissue. Our stress formula is used by hundreds of people every month to help nourish the central nervous system as well as the adrenal glands. Treatment for anxiety should include stress vitamins as well is adrenal fatigue supplements. Our joint support formula is one of the best joint supplements on the market because it addresses joint support from many different angles. When seeking arthritis pain relief joint supplements can be helpful for joint pain. Vitamins for arthritis or joint supplements should also support the flexibility of connective tissues. In April we will have more information about Chelated Magnesium and make sure to listen to these amazing testimonials. Check out all of Dr Whiting’s Chronic Disease Special Reports.
