It’s no surprise to me why when I speak about fruit as a main source of diet that diabetes, or rather blood sugar levels, is one of the first questions I get. The majority of people in this world have been taught by the allopathic community that diabetics shouldn’t eat fruit. This is completely contrary to physics and chemistry of the human body. Simply put, it’s absurd. It’s shocking, but not entirely, how doctors will tell patients to eat only vegetables or even complex sugars rather than fruit.
Let’s dive into the science for further clarification.
Fruit sugar, or Fructose, is simple chemistry. It requires ZERO insulin or ATP (adenosine triphosphate) to transport it. Most nutrients require a transporter so it can be properly absorbed and utilized. Glucose (vegetables) and complex chemistry including proteins require insulin. Fructose however is absorbed easily and directly to the cell wall making it a superior food for the human species. It is electric, balanced pH and astringent, which pulls the mucus lodged in the body and supports cleansing of the lymphatic system.
Side bar: Notice how I said species. We aren’t a blood type, we’re a species and all created with the same vertebrae and organs. All we are is cells and two fluids (blood and lymph) Similarly, you would not feed one dog a different meal then you would the other, they are built exactly the same, as are we. The sooner humanity realizes the proper food for our kind, the sooner people will return to the health and vitality our species was meant for.
But I digress…
U.S. Government figures, January 20016, report more than 29 million Americans are living with diabetes, and 86 million are living with pre-diabetes. For a disease that is so devastating in its effects upon the body, diabetes is one of the easiest to overcome. I say this respectful of the fact that there are some difficult cases, especially in the more advanced types, or what is called type I or juvenile diabetes. There are basically two types of diabetes. Type I, which is usually called juvenile or brittle diabetes, fits in the category of insulin dependent. Type II, or what is referred to as late onset diabetes, is considered non-insulin dependent diabetes. It can, however, become insulin dependent. In my opinion there is very little difference between these types except the associated tissue weaknesses in type I, which have become much weaker through genetic transmission. The next question is always regarding the role of the pancreas.
The function of the pancreas that directly relates to diabetes is performed by the beta cells, which produce and release the insulin that assists in the utilization of glucose fuel by the body. When this part of the pancreas becomes hypoactive from inflammation or congestion (aka acidosis) this can cause inadequate amounts of insulin to be produced. Insulin, being a protein-type hormone, assists the transport of glucose through cell membrane walls. Again, fructose from fruit moves through cell walls by diffusion, not active transport, as in the case of glucose. Wouldn’t it make sense then that if you have a person dealing with these imbalances to put them on fruit? Yet diabetics are commonly told not to eat fruit because of its sugar. This is doing a mass disservice to the individual and keeping them unwell. We have always put our diabetic clients on fruits with tremendously positive results. There are also all natural and highly effective ways of balancing blood sugar levels on a consistent basis all the while strengthening and cleansing the body.
