If you are diabetic, you understand how delicate diabetes really is. All types of diabetes require a very precise, chemical management, and using diet chemical sweeteners only makes this task harder.
Going Down The Wrong Road
The sweetener companies defend product safety for the diabetic based on mounds of their research – corporate funded studies that mean nothing at the end of the day. We don’t hear about the harmful research because the profiteers want to keep you coming back for more.
The true focus is very basic – diabetics need tools for self-help; the proper tools, that is! Today, “sugar-free” marketers want to convince every diabetic that life cannot go on without artificial sweeteners. But diabetes existed long before the sugar-free frenzy, and the fewer diabetics merely twenty years ago survived just fine without “diet products.”
Get Out Of The Vortex
Don’t fall prey to the advertisements, and, sorry, but most doctors are tragically misinformed and grossly behind the times.
Take control of your diabetes, and your life, by making lifestyle changes such as eating healthier foods with NO FOOD CHEMICALS, drinking plenty of pure water and iced herbal teas, and by maintaining regular exercise. These simple changes can make living with diabetes much easier and it will put YOU back in control of your life rather than your diabetes controlling you. It’s much less expensive, too.
Everyone Is Different
Every case of diabetes is different. Diabetes is a common disease these days, but it is still very misunderstood. Most people think diabetes is simply a disease that means you just can’t eat sugar. The artificial sugar industry markets fake sugars as totally harmless to the diabetic, and entices consumers into believing that everyone can eat and drink all they want when it’s “sugar-free.” Well, is that working for you?
Big Corps, Big Pharma, and Big Advertisers do not tell you that what works for one person may not work for another. What makes this matter even more difficult to understand is the fact that diabetes is just a little bit different for every diabetic – not every diabetic is the same.
This is why no one artificial sweetener company (nor any medical doctor) can make a blanket statement that sweetener products are “safe for diabetics.”
Get Excited About Better Choices
Don’t lose heart. Having diabetes doesn’t mean that you have to give up the things that are important to you such as enjoying a good meal, working long hours, staying active in sports, or having children. Even traveling can be easy and relatively carefree.
People with diabetes do have to be more conscientious about what they eat, and when they eat, but we ALL should be this conscientious about our diet. Just because you have diabetes doesn’t mean you have to use the toxic, chemical foods marketed to you. For families with a diabetic child, it is critical to teach your children the difference between toxic, chemical foods and natural, whole foods.
Be careful of the “sugar-free” lifestyle being pushed on you. Stop adding more chemicals to your diet and get back to the basics of living, even if you have diabetes.
