Happy new year everyone. All the best for 2010.
I have a question in regards to Type II Diabetes. I often read that once you have it, it isn't reversible.
Is that really true? I mean, when you eat and live in the way that your body was meant to (primal, natural eating supplemented with good exercise) then your metabolism of carbohydrates should return to how it should be. Sure, it might take a while to get to this point after many years of SAD, but there's always hope, isn't there? If you're really determined to get yourself healthy, then you can do it at any age, can't you?
I just don't like it when someone implies that no, you can't heal yourself, or that you may be 'doomed' and have to rely on pills for the rest of your life. It's like you don't have control of your health.
I'm asking this question a little out of personal concern for my dad. And myself, too, I guess. I have the 'diabetic gene'. It's a little unfair, but I'm sure if I work hard at it then I can have control of my health.
I was thinking about putting this topic in Nutrition, but I think it's appropriate in Success Stories too. Anyone proved them wrong? Or know of anyone who has taken control of their health and healed their body naturally?
