Insulin Resistance – The Silent Killer (What Causes Insulin Resistance and How to Reverse it)


Have you ever wondered if you have Insulin Resistance? I talk about the common symptoms of insulin resistance, explain the mechanism, reveal the true root cause, and explain how to reverse insulin resistance.

Insulin resistance is more common than you could think. And it is often not diagnosed until you get pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Insulin resistance is the Silent Killer because so many of us have it and don’t take action early enough to prevent further complications.

If you have insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, or type 2 diabetes, watching this video is a must.

Type 2 Diabetes – Changing Your Eating Style Helps Control Diabetes

Your eating style plays a larger role in influencing your health than you may think. For better or worse, what and how you eat is incredibly important. Eat well, and you are likely to be in good shape. Eat poorly, and you are going to leave yourself vulnerable to disease. If you are already dealing with a common health issue like Type 2 diabetes, it will benefit you to know your eating style can make a difference. How you eat can make your situation better or worse. Do not underestimate Type 2 diabetes and its potential to exacerbate. Allow yourself only one option: treatment and control of your blood sugar and body weight.

Type 2 Diabetes – Light Brightness Affects Blood Sugar and Fat Levels

According to the Journal of Biological Rhythms, April 2017, the amount of light we see in the morning can affect our blood sugar and fat levels. Scientists at the University of Amsterdam and several other research institutions in the Netherlands compared Type 2 diabetic men with non-diabetic men exposed to either dim or bright light at 0730. Eight lean, healthy men and eight males who had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes were exposed to either 4000 lux or 10 lux of light for an hour. Each participant was given a 600 calorie breakfast.

Type 2 Diabetes – The Best Time to Eat Carbohydrates

Sometimes it may seem like there is too much fuss about carbohydrates. Rarely, if ever, are they neglected in a diet or nutrition conversation? But is their importance overstated? And just how accurate is the information spread about carbohydrates?These are profound questions beyond the scope of this discussion. That said, we will touch on these topics indirectly as we talk about timing and consumption of carbohydrates. Type 2 diabetics are aware their carbohydrate intake has an effect on their body’s blood sugar. Which leads us to our first point: carbohydrates need not be totally avoided, because they are not altogether harmful.

6 Symptoms Of Diabetes

The Center for Disease Control(CDC) reports that there are over 30 million Americans living with diabetes. Many diseases and conditions like diabetes may have overlapping symptoms that could be difficult for a diagnosis. With that being said, individuals need to evaluate their symptoms in order to help their medical professional make an informed diagnosis.

Type 2 Diabetes – Can Natural Products Be Used To Help Manage Diabetes Symptoms?

One important way to discover whether a product works is to study how it works. If a mechanism can be defined, then we have good evidence the treatment is effective. In May 2017, the journal Current Diabetes Review reported on a study on natural products for treating Type 2 diabetes. Investigators at the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Florianopolis, Brazil reviewed all the articles they could find concerning scientific testing of molecules from plant species purported to be therapeutic against Type 2 diabetes. The following molecules reportedly have anti-diabetic activity with defined ways of working.
