What is Diabetes?

    Diabetes mellitus is a condition in which the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body cannot use it properly. Glucose comes from the digestion of starchy foods such as bread, rice, potatoes, yams and plantain, from sugar and other sweet foods, and from the liver which makes glucose. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas, that helps the glucose to enter the cells where it is used as fuel by the body. Glucose levels in the blood are regulated by the production of insulin a lack of insulin results in excessively high blood sugar levels. The main symptoms of untreated diabetes are increased thirst, going to the toilet all the time – especially at night, extreme tiredness, weight loss, genital itching or regular episodes of thrush, and blurred vision.

Types and causes of Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes, also known as insulin dependent diabetes
Type 2 diabetes, also known as non insulin dependent diabetes

    Type 1 diabetes develops if the body is unable to produce any insulin. This type of diabetes usually appears before the age of 40. It is treated by insulin injections and diet and regular exercise is recommended. Type 1 diabetes develops when the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas have been destroyed. Nobody knows for sure why these cells have been damaged but the most likely cause is an abnormal reaction of the body to the cells. This may be triggered by a viral or other infection. This type of diabetes generally affects younger people. Both sexes are affected equally.
    Type 2 diabetes develops when the body can still make some insulin, but not enough, or when the insulin that is produced does not work properly (known as insulin resistance). This type of diabetes usually appears in people over the age of 40, though in South Asian and African-Caribbean people, often appears after the age of 25. It is treated by diet and exercise alone or by diet, exercise and tablets or by diet, exercise and insulin injections. Type 2 diabetes used to be called 'maturity onset' diabetes because it usually appears in middle-aged or elderly people, although it does occasionally appear in younger people. The main causes are that the body no longer responds normally to its own insulin, and/or that the body does not produce enough insulin. People who are overweight are particularly likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. It tends to run in families and is more common in Asian and African-Caribbean communities. Some people wrongly describe Type 2 diabetes as 'mild' diabetes. There is no such thing as mild diabetes. All diabetes should be taken seriously and treated properly

Other causes of diabetes

    There are some other causes of diabetes, including certain diseases of the pancreas, but they are all very rare. Sometimes an accident or an illness may reveal diabetes if it is already there, but they do not cause it.

Magnetic treatments for Diabetes

    Diabetes has many profound effects on the body, increased risk of heart disease, neuropathy( nerve damage), retinopathy() and poor circulation/healing.
    Most of these adverse effects can be very successfully treated with the application of therapeutic magnets to specific areas.
Diabetic neuropathy is long-term damage to the nerve fibres. It happens when high blood sugar levels are present over several years. In diabetes, the form it usually first takes is reduced sensation in the feet. The nerve damage affects each foot equally and eventually spreads up the legs. Poor sensation in your feet makes them more prone to injury. Combined with poor circulation this can easily lead to ulcers and infections.
    The nerve damage can be short-term (acute) or long-term (chronic). Because this complication is caused by poor blood sugar control, people who don't take enough care in controlling their diabetes stand a higher risk of developing nerve damage.

    Diabetic neuropathy can be treated with magnetic shoes insoles. These are usually flexible ferrite magnets that are formed inside a very thin (2mm thickness) shoe insole. The gauss/tesla rating of magnetic insoles is very high, normally around 25,000 gauss/2.5 tesla , per foot. Because the magnets cover the entire foot area they create one very large magnet that has the ability to create a widespread magnetic field , that can penetrate all the way up to the knee , as well as having the strength to penetrate deep into the tissues.
    Tests in the USA, using magnetic insoles on patients with diabetic neuropathy revealed that 90% of the patients tested gained an improvement in blood perfusion ( circulation) and in nerve sensation.
    The insoles will drastically improve the blood flow to the feet and lower leg plus the oxygen rich blood will help in the renewal of the nerve endings, which will return sensation to the affected areas. Pain, tingling, burning and numbness will be reduced. Most people report that they can feel an almost immediate warmth in their feet and lower legs , followed by a tingling as sensation and circulation return. For the effects to last the insoles should be worn all day every day, but they can be removed at night time.

    Poor circulation, poor healing and the increased risk of heart disease all stem from the action of increased insulin levels in the body. When blood sugar levels (glucose) are high the bodies’ reaction is to tell the pancreas to increase insulin production. As the blood sugar level gets higher then the pancreas has to in turn produce even more insulin to combat the effects of the glucose I in the blood. Over at long period of time the pancreas begins to shut down and can no longer produce the amount of insulin that the body requires to counter act blood glucose. This causes type 2 diabetes.
    During the time when the body was producing very high insulin levels in the body the insulin was having a negative impact on the bodies metabolism. Insulin slows down the metabolism making it harder to metabolise (break down and convert) fats into energy. The result of the slow metabolism is to store the excess fat in the tissues. Over a period of years this creates a high body fat index. The other detrimental effect of insulin in the blood is that it encourages bad fats and bad cholesterol to cling to and coat the arteries ( particularly the coronary arteries). People with diabetes have a high risk of developing heart disease, high blood pressure and poor circulation because of high insulin levels (even type 1 diabetics who will have had high insulin levels from injecting insulin to control blood sugar levels).

    It is possible to reduce the damage that has built up over the years, by drinking magnetised water. In short, when you drink water that has been magnetised, the magnetic field is very rapidly transported around the whole body. The size of the water molecule is increased and minerals are more easily absorbed. Toxins are draw out of the tissues and flushed out of the body via the kidneys.
    Once water has been magnetised it becomes alkaline and this will reduce acidity in the body, hormone levels can also be affected by the water changes that take place during magnetisation. For a diabetic this means that blood glucose levels are stabilised and do not require so much insulin to regulate them, plus blood cholesterol levels will be reduced, which in turn will reduce build up of plague along artery walls.
Drinking magnetised water on a daily basis will begin to reverse the adverse effects of long term high insulin levels. With out high blood insulin levels circulation and perfusion (oxygenation of the tissues) will improve, including the bodies healing capacity. Once cholesterol levels have reduced the risk of heart disease will also be less. Magnetised water should be used on a permanent basis to act as a preventative measure as well as a treatment of current symptoms.
