When a type 2 diabetes patient hears it’s possible to reverse diabetes and stop all medication, the excitement is palpable. Physicians hesitate to stop or reduce dosages because too often physicians and patients alike see a disappointing outcome when a patient tries to reverse their diabetes but never seems to achieve it long term.
A realistic view of reversing diabetes is essential. But does it mean it’s not true?
Of course not.
To cure is to restore health, soundness, or normality; to bring about recovery. Remission of an illness is a stage during which symptoms are much less severe. The term “reverse,” however, is to turn completely about in position or direction, to effect reverse movement. If a patient can be in remission or cured from cancer, why is it not thought possible to be able to reverse the effects of type 2 diabetes?
Help Your Body Heal
The human body is amazing. It has the innate ability to heal when properly treated and cared for. The better we maintain our health, the better we can ward off illness or lessen its effects. But our health is fluid; it changes. Something may happen in life that can take you down a path where you no longer make health a priority.
Fighting diabetes is an extremely difficult proposition. Learning to heal changes your journey to reversing type 2 diabetes. To heal takes effort, time, and dedication to bring your body back to or toward optimal health.
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease. This disease is usually a part of a cluster of health problems:
- High glucose
- High blood pressure
- Abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels
- Weight gain or loss
Consider the journey you embarked on to reverse type 2 diabetes. Were you successful? Did you eliminate or avoid medication as you hoped? Did you achieve success for the first several months only to find yourself back to where you started? Was your doctor right? What went wrong?
Ditch the Diet
The most common mistake is dieting. Dieting to reverse diabetes is a short-lived action. When we improve and see better results, we tend to go back to our previous lifestyle or were unable to identify the steps needed to remain successful. This is most likely why your physician doesn’t buy into reversing diabetes. Many of their patients just can’t seem to do it.
But it may be that following someone else’s diet may not work for you. It’s important to note that your health is unique to you. Therefore, your healing process needs to be just for you. Proper healing from diabetes should not be a food elimination process.
One of the biggest challenges that a client shared was, “Until now, there was no roadmap to help me put the pieces together.” Bringing in food that you enjoy and that supports healthy glucose levels and overall health is part of the roadmap to healing. It’s necessary to get your body into a healing mode by implementing small, healthy habits. This takes time and consistency. Getting to know how your body reacts to food, exercise, sleep, and avoiding stress will help you to achieve success.
Following ill-advised guidance from someone encouraging you to reward yourself with food that spikes your glucose must be avoided. Giving your body the time to heal and reverse the effects of diabetes is a must to be successful. How long does it take? That answer is different for everyone.
It’s very exciting to see better glucose readings. But that is not the time to quit fighting—it’s the time to continue pushing forward. Education and awareness, with the help of the right lab tests, have a place in reversing and healing from diabetes and realize you are working on your overall health as well.
The ability to reverse the effects of diabetes is not an issue, because it is possible. Finding success is in the customized roadmap set for you to improve and achieve your health goals.
Take it from someone who has done it.
