The Diabetes High Blood Pressure Defense?
I do not want to get into which country has the fattest people. All in all, there is a fat epidemic spreading the Earth, faster than Facebook gets new members. Walking hand-in-hand with this statistic, is diabetes. It is also known as the slow death. Ten years ago, when I met my brother-in-law, he was diagnosed with diabetes. Today he has no legs and has lost part of a hand.
The International Diabetes Federation estimates that in 2011 366 million adults (20-79 years) have diabetes. By 2030, the number is expected to increase to 552 million, or approximately 10% of the global adult population.
Diabetes does not just affect obese people. I worked with a colleague at an investment bank who was fit as a fiddle. On an office bet, I watched him bust out 50 pushups like it was nothing. He is a professional skier and a semi-professional rugby player. All in all, he looks (like George Clooney) great; however, he too has diabetes. Day after day, I watched him inject himself with insulin.
Diabetes mellitus, often simply referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger).
I will never forget when I visited the island of St. John, in the Virgin Islands. I was over looking the jungle and the guide looked to me and said, “The cure for everything is out there.” Most of these drugs you see today are synthetic derivatives of nature. The purpose of this article is to provide natural solutions for diabetes, blood pressure and hypertension.
The first natural solution is Cinnamon, which improves glucose and lipids of people with type 2 diabetes. The thing is, it is not a good idea to use the Cinnamon in your spice rack. This contains a natural compound called coumarin, which is a natural anticoagulant (blood thinner). Long story short, buy the capsules. Cinnamon supports sugar metabolism and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within a normal range. Anti-diabetic effect of cinnamon extract on blood glucose has been proven scientifically by testing mice.
Next, let’s talk about hypertension. This blood pressure condition makes the heart work harder and can lead to heart attacks and disease. It is also known as the Black man’s silent partner. It has been proven hypertension, disproportionally affects Black males vs. their White counterparts.
Hypertension (HTN) or high blood pressure, sometimes arterial hypertension, is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. This requires the heart to work harder than normal to circulate blood through the blood vessels. Blood pressure involves two measurements, systolic and diastolic, which depend on whether the heart muscle is contracting (systole) or relaxed (diastole) between beats. Normal blood pressure is at or below 120/80 mmHg. High blood pressure is said to be present if it is persistently at or above 140/90 mmHg.
The natural support remedy for hypertension is Hawthorn Berry. Hawthorn Berry active components are mostly flavonoids and procyanidins. Hawthorn is also a source of tannins, carboxylic acids, triterpenes and simple amines. The beneficial effect of Hawthorn Berry is because of the synergy of all of its components. The flavonoids in Hawthorn Berry have been proven to dilate peripheral and coronary blood vessels, alleviating hypertension and angina. Again, your best bet, is to purchase the capsules and take them regularly.
Lastly, let’s incorporate Cayenne Pepper into the mix. Cayenne pepper increases metabolism by immediately influencing the venous structure. It also cleans the arteries as well, helping to rid the body of the bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It is so powerful inside the body it is like sending the X-Men in against:
- prostate cancer
- lung cancer
- pancreas cancer
It is known to kill the cancer cells. One of the most amazing features of Cayenne is its ability to stop a heart attack within 30 seconds! It feeds the vital elements into the cell structure of veins, capillaries, arteries and helps adjust blood pressure to normal levels.
In closing, nothing beats eating right. It appears if we ate the right amounts of the right foods our bodies would be clean temples! Supplementing our diets with the right herbs will obviously regulate are internal systems at optimal levels. If you have someone close to you going through any of these conditions please share this with them.
