Understanding Sugar

It started when I worked out of the boston office and would drive straight home after work for close to four hours, when I notice my vision started becoming blurry. But  not until I was falling asleep at a meeting and decided to pop some candy for energy, next thing i found myself passing out is when ah had to pay attention to sugar. The most common form of diabetes is type 2 diabetes. It is said about 90 to 95 percent of people with diabetes are type 2. This form of diabetes is most often associated with older age, obesity, family history of diabetes (we know that only DIEt goes from generation to generation), previous history of gestational diabetes, physical inactivity, and certain ethnicities.
Type 2 diabetes results from insulin resistance (a condition in which the body fails to properly use insulin) and after several years the insulin production decreases. The result is the same as for type 1 diabetes -glucose (sugar) builds up in the blood and the body cannot make efficient use of its main source of fuel. Now at this point you should ask “if sugar aka glucose is the number one source of fuel for the body, why are so many people dying from it? Am just saying when i put the right source of fuel in a car it becomes energized and your able to keep going but for some reason our main source of fuel is taking our lives and the lives of our young ones through the condition known as diabetes.

The symptoms of type 2 diabetes develop gradually. As more and more sugar enters the body from the foods we eat. Sugar.. upon entering the mouth damages a lot of the senses in the mouth, to the point where one can begin to develop an addiction/ to sugar. Due to what has happened to the paleet and taste buds the body has been tricked into accepting sugar within the body. If you have ever try chewing on one of those over the counter pain reliever pills you may have experience such a hard time swallowing that compound that you had to take it down with water. This is why most drugs are covered with a sugar coating. Allowing the body to think the drug is something that it can ingest. Its like being so hungry you couldn’t wait to eat so you tear open the sandwich and start chomping to the point you may have bitten off a piece of the wrapping of the sandwich also. So you chew and chew and notice the tongue is separating something in the mouth, next thing you know you are spitting out piece of the wrapper simply because the body knows that that material does not belong within the body. From this point we need to understand and know that whatever action the body takes is the correct one.

Their onset of type 2 diabetes is not as sudden as in type 1 diabetes. Symptoms may include Fatigue: “extreme tiredness from mental and physical exertion or illness” One of the main reasons for the body to experience fatigue is because it is low on energy, now you need to ask the question “what gives us energy”? So as we continue the destructive sugar journey down the digestive tract, one may start experiencing very poor digestion which can create onset of acid reflux. Let me explain.. What does our stomach produce to aid with digestion? Acid. Now being that sugar is acidic, when ingested, sugar gets a free pass through the stomach so now we observe the stomach gets lazy and doesn’t produce enough acid anymore to help break down the (fuel) real food. Acid is acid so what is there really to be broken down? Now as our food isn’t being broken down properly by the body one can develop a condition known as acid reflux where food is having a hard time breaking down as a result of poor acid production of the stomach. When this happens the food takes a much longer time to breakdown to the point it begins to ferment sometimes even rot in the stomach producing a burning sensation that rises from the stomach up the esophagus making its way to the throat and exiting the body. This gas that is produce by the rotting food, is what causes the pain and discomfort of what some may call acid reflux.

The ultimate fix for this is to be able to identify sugar when you see it, but for quick and effective way to eliminate this condition you can use the simple gel of the aloe vera leaf that will stimulate the stomach to produce the proper range of hydrochloric acid for digestion of food. Other herbs that help this condition would be Gentian root, Chamomile flowers, Dandelion root and others. digestion is a function of the body that begins with both smell and taste. If the body skips any of the digestive steps in breaking down your food there wouldn’t be much nutrients for your body to absorb naturally. Which can lead to fatigue and severe tiredness, when the body cannot absorb the nutrients that it needs, as the digestive system has been severely compromised by sugar.

As we follow sugar on it way to entering the body, from the stomach to the intestine area sugar begins to paralyze the intestinal villi.. “the fingerlike projections serving to increase surface area  and facilitate the passage of nutrients into the body. Due to the devastating action of sugar on the intestinal villi the body’s absorption of nutrients has been compromised even further and it is at this point where fatigue can be amplified even though you are eating three meals a day. 
What we should understand is that the many system and checks in place to keep toxic materials out of the body. the way that the body is design, we know that any material that is in the GI tract is still considered being outside the body, not until the proper digestion has taken place is when the transfer of nutrients should take place and now the contents of the small intestine is absorbed by the body into the bloodstream and is now considered inside the body……..
