   Diabetes has become one of the leading health issues we face today. Anyone can become diabetic, and diabetic mothers are passing the predisposition on to their unborn children. Diabetes is due to either a lack of insulin production (insulin deficiency), or the cells resistance to the action of insulin. When insulin is either unavailable to, or rejected by the cells for glucose absorption the body becomes malnourished. Without proper treatment, this malnutrition known as diabetes can contribute to the development of several other degenerative diseases (such as liver and kidney failure), and an early death.
   Type 1 diabetes accounts for 10% of diabetics and usually occurs between childhood and age 35, but the most frequent accounts are between 10-16 years of age, making it the most common chronic disease in children living in the United States. Type 1 diabetes means that not enough insulin is produced by the pancreas to balance blood glucose levels. When glucose levels are not balanced with insulin levels in the blood, the abundance of glucose spills into the urine instead of nourishing the cells of the body, and leads to starvation of the cells and consequently starvation of the body.  Common symptoms of type 1 diabetes are weight loss, fatigue, excessive thirst and hunger, sores that do not heal, swollen gums, tooth decay, and mental confusion.
   Type 2 diabetes accounts for the other 90% of diabetics and can occur at any age but is most prevalent after 40 years of age. The symptoms are the same as in type 1 diabetes except instead of weight loss there is weight gain. In type 2 diabetes the pancreas produces insulin, but the cells are resistant to the insulin's action (they do not absorb glucose from the bloodstream). When glucose is not absorbed from the bloodstream to nourish the cells it inhibits the effectiveness of certain proteins and reduces the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. This inhibiting action of excess glucose and the oxygen depleting effects make the blood toxic. Toxic blood creates imbalance and malnutrition of tissues, cells, and consequently organs of the body.

Major Causes:
-Bovine albumin peptide: a simple protein in cows milk which destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.
-Chromium deficiency: has a role in cells sensitivity to insulin
-Liver disorders (particularly linked to type 1 diabetes)

Related Emotions: For diabetics with an emotional priority, the emotions to address are fear, worry, and guilt. The goal is to embrace love, trust, and forgiveness of self and others.

Leading Cause of Death from Diabetes:
-Kidney failure: blood toxicity damages the capillaries supplying the kidneys with oxygen and nourishment.

   The good news is diabetes can be treated and healed naturally and safely in the comfort of your own home. Insulin-dependant diabetics can get off insulin or greatly reduce their dependance through proper diet, exercise, and a creative life view.  And non-insulin-dependent diabetics can also manage their blood sugar levels this way. Although, if going off insulin, it is important to have professional guidance during transition. Treat diabetes as if it were a motivating force inspiring you to progress on your innate quest to wholeness. The calling for diabetics is discipline, to live life in the eternal now and be aware of present choices' possible outcomes. Divorcing worry, resistance, compulsions and addictions in order to love one's self fully will be a life changing challenge for someone with diabetes on their path to optimum health. Treating diabetes naturally means to love yourself passionately by meeting your emotional needs, having discipline in your physical lifestyle and diet, and living in awareness of the benefits! 

Natural Treatment Methods: Type 1 Diabetic: Clear any virus, infection, inflammation and balance acid/alkalinity in the blood. Cleanse (with the supervision of a professional to support insulin adjustment), with low carbohydrates, vegetable juices, and raw and non-starchy vegetables (if kidneys are weak do not use lemon) Exercise often to burn excess glucose from the bloodstream so that you lower the amount of insulin required.
Type 2 Diabetic: Diet is the main focus. Cleanse with low carbohydrates, vegetable juices, and raw and non-starchy vegetables (if kidneys are weak do not use lemon). Eliminate all allergy foods and intolerant foods that could be negatively contributing to the cells ability to function properly. Exercise often to burn excess glucose in the bloodstream so that you lower the amount of insulin required. Go with the flow of life. Live in joy, trust, and acceptance of change.
