The Next Coming Epidemic—& it’s Not Ebola…

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Leisa Wheeler, naturopath, health and healing mentor, and fatigue specialist, is the founder and director of Embracing Health, a business dedicated to bringing you health information that can change your life.
Leisa’s passions include many areas of health – from food as medicine and nutrition, to physical fitness and detoxification; from emotional release work to spiritual healing; these varied interests shaping her belief in the value of integrated healing on all levels; physical, emotional and spiritual.

There is an epidemic coming—but it’s not a rampant, infectious pandemic that many live in fear of, hyped to hysteria by an alarmist and sensationalist-loving media. It is much more insidious than that—stealthily stalking millions of unwary people, and even now reaching such extraordinary numbers that we should be sitting up and taking notice. The disease is diabetes, and even though it isn’t a ‘contagious disease’ and therefore doesn’t fit the true definition of epidemic—the spread of it is becoming out of control.

In my research for one of the chapters in my forthcoming book “The ‘F’ Word Solution” I read the revised edition of Dr. Gabriel Cousens excellent and incredibly comprehensive work: “There Is a Cure For Diabetes: The 21-Day+ Holistic Recovery Program.”  And I agree wholeheartedly with the statement that Dr Brian R. Clement, Director of the Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida, writes in the Foreword:

” Type-2 diabetes is directly linked to lifestyle choices; it does not deserve the status of having billions of dollars spent on it for research and drug development, marketing, and institutions that protect corporate and government interests and their industry profits. Diabetes and the promotion of a drug-dependent “cure” by multinational pharmaceutical companies and the medical community are the real global epidemics that are destroying the possibility of a healthy, drug-free life for millions worldwide. Maintaining health is much simpler than is purported in the journals of medicine and mainstream media, and Dr. Cousens is a leader in showing us how. “There is a Cure for Diabetes” is essential reading for anyone who desires lifelong health and a saving grace for current and future generations who wish to be free from diabetes.”

As Clements mentions, Type-2 diabetes is a lifestyle disease. It is preventable and in almost all cases, completely reversible. Yet, as with many chronic diseases, the misinformation surrounding diabetes is astounding, with the general consensus being that diabetes is a genetic disease that you develop through no fault of your own. This bypasses an individual’s responsibility in the creation of this illness, and puts the management of it into the hands of the medical field who offer nothing other than symptomatic management while a person loses their health and quality of life. Leading in most, to premature death.

I write in “The ‘F’ Word Solution” about insulin resistance, the precursor to Type-2 diabetes: “Insulin resistance is classed as a lifestyle disease in our modern era, and is almost completely preventable. Yes, there are some genetic factors which predispose a person towards insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, but the lifestyle and environmental triggers must also be present. The physiological changes that occur when cells are not able to respond appropriately to insulin, have several causative elements—all of which are able to be reversed. A core driver of insulin resistance is dietary:

A diet which is high in:

  • Refined (processed) carbohydrates
  • Sugar
  • Fast food
  • Chemical toxicity
  • Trans fats
  • Excess saturated fats

 And low in:

  • Fibre
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Antioxidants
  • Essential fatty acids”

The treatment for Type-2 diabetes is not rocket science—although reading Dr. Cousens book certainly increased my scientific knowledge! When any disease is initiated by poor lifestyle choices, it is common sense to understand that the treatment of it needs to be a change in those choices.

Choosing to eat a mainly raw-vegan, organic diet, shunning processed foods high in sugar, chemicals and bad fats, getting some exercise, fresh air, sunshine, pure water, managing stress, reducing weight and utilising the assistance of a good naturopath to put together a protocol for healing—is the direction required to reverse this modern illness. In fact, I have witnessed patients with Type-2 diabetes eliminate their need for medication in just one week on the program at an Embracing Health Detox, Healing & Raw Food Retreat. Of course the patient will need to continue on with their lifestyle changes to ensure long-term management of healthy blood sugar levels, but the kick-start they receive from participating in an organic juice fast and cleansing program, is invaluable in their healing.

Type-2 diabetes is not a life-sentence. There is no need for panic. This is one epidemic that can easily be stopped in its tracks.
