Diabetes
 
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...
