Diabetes is one of the most commonly diagnosed conditions in the United States.
Its diagnosis revolves around the body's loss of ability to regulate its
blood-glucose (sugar) levels. Glucose, which is what we call blood sugar, is
very important to the normal function of the body. It is what gives cells the
energy they need. Not just some of the cells, mind you, but all of the cells.
Probably the most common thing in the body that you hear of when it comes to
diabetes, though, is insulin. Insulin is what the body naturally produces to
regulate your blood sugar. Just as eating sugar in large amounts is absolutely
God-awful for you, the body producing too much blood sugar (glucose) is
absolutely God-awful for you. So, insulin's job is to make sure the body
produces just the right amount...
Therefore, the condition known as diabetes is all about that insulin:glucose
ratio. If the body isn't producing enough insulin, then blood sugar sky
rockets. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is diabetes. Pretty simple...
Well, in honor of the Super Bowl, let's do a football analogy. Whether you love
the game or hate the game, you understand that the quarterback is one of the
most important positions for every team. The offense is 100% dependent upon his
production. When he produces, the team (all other things being equal) is
balanced. The team has its best chance at winning when he is out there throwing
touchdowns and managing the game...that's his job. But if he turns the ball
over, if he can't get the ball into the hands of the players who score
touchdowns, then the team is in a state of utter chaos. Once his production
plummets, there goes the chance of winning.
Well, understand that insulin is one of the most important hormones produced in
the body. The blood sugar levels in the body are 100% dependent upon its
production. When insulin is produced, the blood sugar levels are balanced. The
body has it best chance at maintaining itself when insulin is being produced at
levels that keep the blood sugar levels on an even keel...that's its job. But
if insulin is low, if it can't regulate the amount of glucose, then the body is
in a state of utter chaos. Once insulin production plummets, there goes the
chance of blood sugar balance.
Many medical "experts" point to hereditary factors as the cause of diabetes, but
that's just flawed logic. If there is a neurologic compromise that prevents the
pancreas from making the proper amounts of insulin, then blood sugar levels
rise. It's really that simple.
The lesson to be learned is that when the top bone slides out of position and
puts a stress on the brainstem, then the nerve that allows the brain to tell the
pancreas to make insulin may be compromised. Every nerve in the body originates
from the brainstem. Therefore, the brainstem controls the pancreas. When you
take that stress off the brainstem and restore the normal function of the
pancreas, then insulin will be produced at the right amounts and the body will
be able to regulate blood sugar once again.
It's so simple that it's really hard to get...
