In this video, we’re going to talk about a question I get a lot from my viewers, can you reverse diabetes? The answer is: it depends.
We’re primarily talking about type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune problem. Type 2 diabetes is a problem that has to do with epigenetics. If you understand this, you may be able to do something about type 2 diabetes.
Epigenetics means “above genetics.” This is all about lifestyle choices, like diet, exercise, and stress. You can control and keep your genes from expressing certain diseases with epigenetics.
Most people don’t focus on the key thing that’s causing T2 diabetes—carbs. You have to lower your carbs to support healthy and normal blood sugar levels.
Lowering your carbs also lowers your insulin, which lowers your insulin resistance.
There are 7 main things that cause insulin resistance:
1. Sugars (especially refined) 2. High carbs 3. High-fructose corn syrup 4. Vegetable oils 5. Starches 6. Medications 7.
Stress You should always attack type 2 diabetes at its core by focusing on these seven things.
