Dr. Beyer Talks About Reversing Type 2 Diabetes
Many people ask me is it possible to really reverse Type 2 Diabetes? The answer to that question is a resounding yes!
Type 2 Diabetes affects approximately 29.1 million Americans (9.3%)
8 million are undiagnosed
Type 2 Diabetes is implicated in all of the following chronic illnesses:
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Depression/anxiety/memory loss/dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease
- Balance disorders/vertigo
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Digestive disorders
- Hormone imbalances
- Kidney failure
- Chronic skin problems
- Blindness/ visual problems
- Kidney failure
- Erectile dysfunction
- Autoimmune disease
- Cardio vascular disease
Insulin is a very important hormone that puts useless blood glucose into your cells where it is used as energy. Simply put, in Type 2 Diabetes, there is not too little insulin (as many think) but too much! When insulin is elevated for a period of time cells get desensitized to it and it can no longer do their job. The symptoms of chronically high levels of insulin then become the same as if it was low.
When cells stop listening to insulin this is known as insulin resistance. A good analogy is if your boss was yelling at you and you could not quit your job. Eventually you would tune the boss out. This is what happens in insulin resistance or Type 2 Diabetes.
What is the medical solution to this? Well our pharmaceutically driven medical system’s “standard of care” is to give you medication that basically increase your insulin even more! This is equivalent to your boss yelling at you louder and louder! It might work for a while but eventually communication will breakdown.
From a functional medicine point of view the culprits behind elevated blood sugar and elevated insulin have to be identified and removed. There are many more culprits to elevated blood sugar and elevated insulin than diet and exercise. Please watch my full length video to learn what they are and, more importantly, what you can do to identify and remove them.
There is a better way to good health and it is my life’s mission to teach it to those who a ready and willing to learn!
