Diabetes Type 2 & other common health challenges improve quickly with Alkaline Ionized Water!
By Steve Marmor herbalist, iridologist, nutritional consultant
Type 2 diabetes has doubled in this country in the last twenty-thirty years. It is a major problem in our society but if the truth be known, not a difficult condition to improve (& quickly). It stems from over-indulgence & an inverted way of living that has become more commonplace in our country during the last three decades.
Let’s take a closer look at the problem…
Insulin converts sugar to glycogen, which the body uses for energy. Glycogen we do not use for energy is stored in the muscles, liver & elsewhere for later use. when these stores are full because we ingest too many carbohydrates, the body will convert the excess sugar to fat and we gain weight. About 65% of the population in this country are said to be overweight, obese or morbidly obese. This is not the case everywhere in the world.
Lack of portion control, stress, sedentary lifestyles and high-glycemic carbohydrates are the main culprits. Pasta, bread, rice, potatoes, bagels, rice cakes, cookies, oatmeal sugary fruits are all examoles of problematic foods for people with diabetes & pre-diabetics. The higher the glycemic index number a food has, the higher ones blood sugar level rises and the greater demand for insulin production to help get excess sugar out of the bloodstream. The lower a foods glycemic index number, the less ones blood sugar level rises and there is demand for the body to produce insulin.
Because of our great many packaged and processed foods, mineral depleted soils, high stress, reduced water intake, sedentary lifestyles and our enthusiasm for soda and sport beverages, we congest and tire the organs and glands responsible for regulating blood sugar. Sport beverages and sodas are the worst offenders, but all combined, these factors add up to health imbalances and huge numbers of people with diabetes. This number is growing every day as are the associated health problems that accompany the condition: cardio-vascular, circulatory, eyes, kidneys, inflammatory processes, obesity, on and on…
Don’t think that diet soda, gatorade, Vitamin Water, Crystal Lite or the like are better. They are “chemical soups” with super-high-glycemic index numbers.
We have to restore the health of our cell membranes and rebuild the fatigued organs and glands responsible for regulating insulin production and blood sugar levels. This is not only feasible, but improvements can take place quickly and easily (big changes within 30-45 days). In addition to better food and beverage choices, incorporating a reasonable exercise regimen (does not have to be too demanding, just consistent). Also, conscious intention to reduce ones stress level. In addition, the incorporation of alkaline ionized water can be a big help.
After air, water is the second most important element our bodies require. Hardly any of us are drinking enough or the proper kind of water. In fact, most water sources available to us are dead and acidic. They generally have no energy value, no oxygen, are very acidic and not easily absorbed. All waters are not alike!
Virtually all diabetics are dehydrated and in Asia and all over the Pacific Rim people have been using water ionizer machines for over three decades. One in five households in Japan and one in eight in S. Korea have them in their homes. There, ionizers are classified as medical devices and prescribed for all manner of health problems: constipation, arthritis, acid-reflux, diabetes, mental acuity challenges, sleep, pain, exhaustion, hormonal imbalances, headaches, digestive problems, and much more.
Alkaline, anti-oxidizing, oxygen-rich, super-hydrating water produced by the Athena, Venus or Isis water machines will not only hydrate more efficiently, but help to mobilize and vanquish much of the biofilm congestion that builds up on cell membranes which contributes so greatly to insulin resistance.
Allaline ionized water helps douse the fires of acidity, reduce inflammation and aids in helping to restore cellular membrane flexibility & permeability. As a result, one’s cells can once again become more easily hydrated, nourished, oxygenated & healthy. As cells become healthier and less congested, they once again take up the insulin and sugar (glucose) more efficiently. Sugar levels remain lower and more stable in the bloodstream and the person dealing with diabetes is not constantly depleting the organs & glands responsible for insulin production and blood sugar regulation.
Drink two quarts a day of alkaline ionized water for 7-10 days and you will see and feel the positive results for yourself.
