Diet & Life-style may strain your body's proper
control of blood sugar levels and often leads to insulin insufficiency and
erratic secretion of insulin - precursors to diabetes
Research shows that when the body has
optimal nutrition available that is specific to pancreatic and Immune
System support, plus the electromagnetic directives to act on that
nutritional input, it can manage insulin production, output and use more
efficiently, and can rebuild pancreatic tissues and beta cell formations
damaged by a diet disproportionately high in sugars.
Sometimes we tend to eat too many simple
carbohydrates (sugar, ice cream, crackers and cookies etc.) which tends
to put a strain on the body's ongoing ability to deal with such overly
refined foods. Our body, although miraculous, can wear out when asked to
live off of a long- term compromised, overly processed diet.
And when our diets have become
compromised, we usually have various problems including suffering from
the "sugar blues," those deep pockets of low energy reserves that we may
feel after a meal (insufficiently balanced with protein and long chain
carbohydrates) when we tend to get sleepy and look for the nearest
Unfortunately, such strain over time can
lead to serious problems of Insulin insufficiency and erratic secretion,
pancreatic disease, hormonal imbalance and Insulin receptor
abnormalities, all of which may culminate into diabetes mellitus, unless
the body can be rebalanced and restored through the proper diet.
Whether hypo- or hyperglycemic
(pre-diabetic), or diabetic, as well as to help the body maintain
appropriate Insulin sensitivity. The inclusion of a safe chromium
source in one's diet has been proven to assist the body in controlling
Insulin production and use, are particular and specific for the
nutritional support of diabetes mellitus and diabetic ulcers, pancreatic
disease and other related glandular disorders. Proper nutrition helps
rebuild and heal pancreatic tissues, ß-cell formations, control Insulin
management, output and use while subsequently decreasing the amount of
sugar in the urine.
Indeed, diabetes mellitus is the most
common of any serious metabolic disease in humans, and perhaps more than
any other disease, is closely associated with diet. Moreover, diabetic
populations are significantly higher where western lifestyle and diet
habits dominate rather than those cultures consuming a more "primitive"
diet. Four percent of America now suffers with diabetes; 90% of these
are Type II and the remaining 10% are Type I. The prevalence of diabetes
is rising. It's now the 7th major cause of death in the U.S. and it's
thought that this will double every 10-15 years, with an estimated 6-10%
increase per year.
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disorder
of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, generally characterized by
fasting elevations of blood glucose levels and erratic Insulin
management production, with subsequent increased chances for developing
atherosclerosis, kidney disease and loss of nerve function.
Insulin is a peptide hormone secreted by
the ß-cells of the islets of Langerhans of the pancreas in response to
an elevation in blood glucose or other secretagogues. It plays a crucial
role in glucose homeostasis by regulating the uptake and metabolism of
glucose by peripheral tissues and the production and storage of glucose
by the liver. Insulin also regulates the metabolism of lipids and
proteins, the synthesis of nucleic acids and the expression of certain
genes. In some cells, and perhaps in fetal life, Insulin also has a less
well-defined role as a growth factor.
is an Insulin-dependent diabetes (IDDM),
now known to be a T-cell mediated autoimmune disease specifically
targeting the pancreatic beta cells, a deficiency strongly correlated to
a hereditary predisposition to injury or destruction of pancreatic
ß-cells which produce and secrete Insulin, and the lack of the
respective tissue regenerative power of those cells. The ß-cell
insufficiency and destruction is generally caused by chemical-pH
imbalances and viral or antibody damage such as that caused by
inflammatory cytokines, particularly those produced by Th1-type
lymphocytes, which are hypothesized to play a major role in the
pathogenesis of all autoimmune diseases, including diabetes of this
type, susceptible to individuals at an early age - usually childhood
is a non-Insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM),
being a disorder of glucose homeostasis characterized by hyperglycemia,
peripheral Insulin resistance, impaired hepatic glucose metabolism, and
diminished glucose-dependent secretion of Insulin from pancreatic
ß-cells. This latter defect may lie in the glucose signaling pathway in
ß-cells involving metabolically regulated Potassium channels which are
the targets of sulphonylurea drugs commonly used in the treatment of
NIDDM. Type II is characterized by Insulin insensitivity evidenced by
typically high levels of circulating Insulin and the reversibility of
blood sugar elevation by dietary changes and/or weight loss sufficient
to restore Insulin sensitivity. Low GTF chromium levels are a major
determinant of Insulin insensitivity, and obesity is yet another
significant factor; onset is generally diet related and usually occurs
later in life.
Simple herbs are believed to lower blood
glucose levels, and quintessential Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs),
which act to increase Insulin sensitivity within the circulatory system,
increase appropriate fatty acid synthesis and may be indirectly involved
with interleukin and interferon secretion by lymph cells. Indeed,
recently BCAAs and other large neutral Amino Acids have been found to be
beneficial when elevated within the blood plasma of diabetic
individuals. BCAAs may also help to protect against hypertension and
cardiovascular problems now known to be associated with diabetic onset.
The Prickly Pear (Opuntia steptacantha,
commonly known as "Nopal" in Mexico) In a study reported in Diabetes
Care and later in the Science News, Vol. 133, No.4, January 1988, this
particular desert cactus was shown to lower blood glucose and Insulin
levels in diabetics, the authors believing that the Prickly Pear
treatment may improve the ability of Insulin to efficiently stimulate
the movement of glucose from the blood into body cells.
Most highly concentrated amino acid released by muscle groups,
functioning as a major energy source in the body; an important
participant and regulator in glucose metabolism.
BCAAs: L-Leucine, L-Valine & L-Isoleucine: Specific branched
chain amino acids which act to increase insulin sensitivity within the
circulatory system and increase appropriate fatty acid synthesis; may
also help to protect against hypertension and cardiovascular problems
now known to be associated with the onset of diabetes.

New published research indicates that
there is now good and compelling reason to supply the body with
milk-based proteins, especially those which are predominantly Casein in
nature like those contained within the Systemex. In this French study
originating from the Sainte-Marguerite Hospital in Marseille, a diet
rich in Casein appears to actually protect subjects (non-obese mice who
have a genetic predisposition for developing diabetes: NOD mice) from
developing diabetes and then passing it on to their young.
Specifically, Casein fed NOD female mice were protected against
spontaneous diabetes and male NOD mice against acute Cyclosphosphamide
or Cy-induced diabetes while also lessening the severity of insulitis.
Moreover, Casein has been found to
exhibit the highest ratio of Total Essential Amino Acids to total
Nitrogen of all foods and proteins reported by the FAO/WHO Expert Group.
The specific Amino Acid configuration of
Casein just mentioned appears to effectively compete against the
inflammatory cytokines response produced by the lymphocytes of the
Immune System mentioned earlier, and may even reduce or circumvent the
possibility of such an aberrant response, protecting beta cell integrity
within the pancreas and the subsequent production of Insulin from amino
acids derived from its structure. No other changes in the Immune System
could account for these results. Such may also allow or ensure ß-cell
"rest," a treatment strategy now of medical preference.
Interestingly, egg-based (albumin)
proteins and other hydrolyzed proteins did not demonstrate this
"protective" effect; Subjects fed albumin based proteins developed
insulitis in 10 weeks. This is yet another strong reason for those who
have a family history of diabetes, especially pregnant or lactating
women and children, to supplement with Vaxa's
TriCardia+. Because of the autoimmune nature of diabetes,
supplementation with our pre-probiotics (kombucha
ginger beer, water-kefir or
Japanese Water Crystals) offer appropriate dispersal of toxins while
supporting and boosting the immune system.
