180 Degree Diabetes: Preventing and Reversing Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

Mainstream medicine considers type 2 diabetes to be an irreversible, incurable disease. This is one of the greatest fallacies and abominations in the world today. It is painlessly simple to prevent, complete reversal is a totally tangible goal, and in the rare cases in which reversal is not possible, there are easy and practical ways to live a long, healthy, and prosperous life as a type 2 diabetic without complications.

Even the disease itself is so misunderstood by mainstream health authorities and dieticians alike that it is almost hard not to laugh at the beliefs they have about its causation. They assert that eating a high-fat, high-calorie diet and not getting enough exercise is the CAUSE of type 2 diabetes. Their only challengers assert that eating carbohydrates causes type 2 diabetes! I swear, I’m not making this up. People with advanced medical degrees and the word Harvard in their resume really believe this stuff!

Get ready for a good chuckle at their expense, as I reveal how I dropped my fasting blood sugar by 26% in less than a month by eating a diet that’s high in saturated fat, high-glycemic carbohydrates, and calories while sitting in front of a computer writing this eBook in lieu of exercise.

Make no mistake, 180 Degree Diabetes is your life raft in a sea of stupidity and misconception surrounding the phenomenon of insulin resistance – a metabolic disturbance that can lead to obesity, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and poor overall health over time. This eBook contains information that is so far advanced in its understanding of poor blood glucose regulation that it makes modern health movements from the low-fat, low-calorie standard to low-carb mania look pathetically oversimplified, ignorant, and mind-bogglingly impotent.

180 Degree Diabetes opens up a whole new door of ideas and understanding on the subject, provides priceless information on how to stop the degenerative march to diabetes from a prevention standpoint, and even serves up an assortment of effective type 2 diabetes reversal protocols that can be used by some to totally eradicate the disease.

No more bowing to the Medical, Diet, and Pharmaceutical Masters of the Universe. It’s time, not to stick yourself with insulin injections, but to stick it to the man – understanding and overcoming insulin resistance and high blood sugars once and for all using an approach that no other medical or nutrition mind has ever even thought to try.

Every other book that has been published on the topic of type 2 diabetes is a complete joke in comparison to 180 Degree Diabetes. Add it to your library and see what all this fuss is about.

Atkins Diabetes Revolution LP : The Groundbreaking Approach to Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Atkins Diabetes Revolution will help you:

  • Find out if you have the metabolic syndrome
  • Identify your risk for diabetes as soon as possible
  • Make permanent lifestyle changes to normalize the underlying metabolic imbalances that lead to Type 2 diabetes
  • Reduce your chances of suffering a heart attack, stroke, and even some cancers
  • Reduce your risk of heart disease by lowering your triglycerides while increasing your HDL (“good”) cholesterol

Read by Sara Krieger

Two colleagues of the late Dr. Robert Atkins take on the obesity epidemic’s deadly twin: type 2 diabetes. Dr. Mary Vernon and Jacqueline Eberstein, RN, adapt the carb-cutting, fat-allowing Atkins nutritional approach as a preemptive strike against this fast-growing killer. Diabetes–defined here as a condition in which glucose or blood sugar is above the normal range–is viewed as a preventable problem. “What we hope we have created in this book is a realistic and practical guide to wiping out type 2, one person at a time.” Since obesity is the major risk factor for diabetes, they begin with the “fat lie” (i.e., the belief that fat causes obesity) to voice the Atkins mantra: low fat means high carbs and high carbs are broken down into sugar. With a convincing mix of essay/picture testimonials, clinical studies, quizzes, checklists, and menu planners and recipes, Vernon and Eberstein make the case for diet and lifestyle changes to alter the metabolism of those at risk for diabetes. They have done a yeoman’s job of translating Atkins’s medical nutrition advice into a step-by-step program. One can quibble about their missionary zeal or the omnipresent eggs in the breakfast sample menus. At times, the scientific data are overly detailed or hidden within a quiz. Thankfully, there is a spot-on summary of the book’s paradigm-busting ideas in the appendix. — Barbara Mackoff

 

The Diabetes Slayer’s Handbook: Preventing or Reversing Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

Just over eleven years ago, author Alan D. Raguso was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. He spent ten years battling raging A1Cs and ever-worsening blood-glucose readings; two and a half years ago, he started developing the beginning stages of retinal problems. That’s when Raguso decided to get serious about his health and resolved to find a way to beat diabetes. In The Diabetes Slayer’s Handbook, he narrates his journey with the disease and presents a nonsurgical, nonprescription-drug intervention program that he discovered through his research and study of nutrition. He provides an understanding of the basics of prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, excess weight, sugar and carbohydrates, and metabolism, and he outlines diabetes-reversal techniques using everyday healthy foods combined with easy low-impact exercise. The Diabetes Slayer’s Handbook dissects the components of diabetes and offers a game plan for attacking the disease to help diabetes sufferers get a handle on their health and their life.

 

Reversing Heart Disease and Preventing Diabetes: Apply Science to Lower Cholesterol 100 Points; Reduce Arterial Plaque 50% in 25 months; and Improve Heart Rhythm and Valves

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

Stand up to heart disease and win like I did! Yes, I have proved that heart artery plaque can be removed. I have reversed my heart disease. My cardiologist performed an angiogram in 2009 and informed me that the two small areas of arterial plaque he saw in 2007 had been reduced to half the original size in only 25 months. The diet, supplement, and drug regimen I present in Chapter 4 lowered my LDL cholesterol level 100 points, which is necessary to reverse coronary artery disease. High HDL cholesterol is also necessary to reverse heart disease. This is one of the most important scientific facts for you to know in order to achieve optimal health. Without increasing HDL cholesterol, you cannot reverse heart disease. My regimen worked like a miracle to increase my HDL cholesterol from 57 to 66, or 16%. It’s amazing. My LDL cholesterol was reduced 100 points to 68. Low LDL cholesterol reduces the work that HDL cholesterol must do to clean the arteries. This makes the HDL more productive and efficient. The LDL/HDL cholesterol ratio is one of the most important blood chemistry measurements for determining coronary artery disease risk, and my awesome reading was only 1.03. Insulin is the number one contributing factor to coronary artery disease because it promotes the formation of plaque in the arteries of the heart. It also produces plaque formation in other arteries of the body and leads to peripheral artery disease, stroke, and kidney disease. Insulin causes cardiovascular disease because it forces LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, calcium, heavy metals, glucose, and free radicals to bind to the arteries throughout the body. My scientific research proves that excess glucose consumption and high insulin cause Type 2 diabetes mellitus, and statistics have shown that 65% of diabetics will die from heart disease. I anticipate that my scientific approach to controlling glucose and insulin will prevent Type 2 diabetes 100% of the time and reduce symptoms in those who have already been diagnosed. Elevated triglycerides are a primary risk factor for heart disease. My regime reduced my triglycerides to 71 quickly and dramatically. The ratio of triglycerides (TR) to HDL cholesterol (TG/HDL) is one of the best indicators for heart disease risk. Triglycerides should be below 100 mg/dL, and HDL cholesterol should be above 50 mg/dL, for a ratio of 2.00. Improving the TG/HDL ratio will substantially reduce the heart disease risk. Some people are walking time bombs with a ratio of 6.00 or greater, and a ratio of 4.00 is very common. The ratio on my blood test was (71/68) = 1.04. My regimen has been shown to remove atherosclerotic lesions and calcification throughout the body with virtually no risks and very few side effects.

Feet Can Last a Lifetime: A Health Care Provider’s Guide to Preventing Diabetes Foot Problems

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

National Hospital Discharge Survey Data indicate that 86,000 people with diabetes in the United States underwent one or more lower-extremity amputations in 1996. Diabetes is the leading cause of amputation of the lower limbs. Yet it is clear that as many as half of these amputations might be prevented through simple but effective foot care practices. The 1993 landmark study, the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, conclusively showed that keeping blood glucose, as measured by hemoglobin A1c, as close to normal as possible significantly slows the onset and progression of diabetic nerve and vascular complications, which can lead to lower extremity amputations. People who have diabetes are vulnerable to nerve and vascular damage that can result in loss of protective sensation in the feet, poor circulation, and poor healing of foot ulcers. All of these conditions contribute to the high amputation rate in people with diabetes. The absence of nerve and vascular symptoms, however, does not mean that a patient’s feet are not at risk. Risk of ulceration cannot be assessed without careful examination of the patient’s bare feet. Early identification of foot problems and early intervention to prevent problems from worsening can avert many amputations. Good foot care, therefore, is an essential part of diabetes management – for patients as well as for health care providers. This kit is designed for primary care and other health care providers who counsel people with diabetes about preventive health care practices, particularly foot care. “Feet Can Last a Lifetime” is designed to help you implement four basic steps for preventive foot care in your practice: Early identification of the high risk diabetic foot, Early diagnosis of foot problems, Early intervention to prevent further deterioration that may lead to amputation, and Patient education for proper care of the feet and footwear.
