We have to start from the pancreas, tongue-shaped gland placed behind the stomach.
Pancreas supplies digestive enzimes to the small intestine. It secretes a hormone called insulin directly into the blood. Insulin is synthetized in specific areas of the pancreas, called Langerhans Isles. The hormone serves for the utilization or the oxidization of glucose-sugar by the body cells. Glucose is the principal energetic resource for the metabolic activity of cells. Metabolic activity of cells is synonym of life.
Insulin is also responsible for converting blood glucose excesses into a starchy substance called glycogen, accumulated then in the liver and in the muscles. In case of insulin lack, the sugar glucose accumulates and concentrates in the blood to get out in the urines, giving rise to diabete mellito.
In other words, there is a cells inability to use glucose, and a pacreas inability to convert glucose into glycogen, with consequent crisis of hyperglycemia or diabetes (high level of sugar in blood and urines). The word diabetes come from Greek and means syphon, in reference to the frequent urinations imposed by this sugar jump.
Eating starchy foods or carbohydrates beyond the real necessity, cause in fact an accumulation in the body, and a urgent necessity of water follows, with subsequent poliuria, or intensive mintion. Fruit eaters do not feel thirsty because plenty of biologic water in their fruits. Eating pasta, pizza, potatoes, breads, cakes, means in fact eating sugars. All carbohydrates are transformed in sugars.
It can happen that many healthy people, not affected by diabetes, find themselves in temporary diabetic situations whenever they exaggerate with starchy foods and fruits, that is with sugars.
The main symptoms of diabetes are excessive and frequent urination, plus thirst (liquids are called to keep sugar in soluble state for elimination), weigh loss, power and vigour loss, hunger.
An amount of 150-180 mg of sugar in 100 cc of blood means diabetes mellitus.
Additional symptoms of this diabetic pathologic condition are abdome pains (inflamed appendix) and stomach spasms (excessive chloridric acid).
The causes can be competition, emotional tensions, stress, scarce rest and sleep, overeating, poor physical exercise, exhaustion of vital nerve energy. Enervation, the drop of nerve energy, weakens the body functions and reduces dramatically its efficiency, breaking off the chemical equilibrium of billion of cells.
In today’s world, people have the tendency to enervate, to become nervously exhausted.
Man consumes denaturated food, lives in physical and mental tension, and this provokes a drainage of the nervous charge, with consequent reduction or suppression of secretions, and a retention-accumulation of toxins, poisons, wastes. Then a development of disorders, including diabetes follows. The body is injured as a whole, but the marks or the symptoms are often localized in one specific organ, which is normally the weakiest or the most predisposed of the subject.
It can be a muscular trouble, or a metabolic affliction as in case of diabetes.
The pharmacologic insulin is a foreign protein and an insiduous poison for human body. It has narcotic properties which cause collateral effects as headache, somnolence, diarrhea, cardiac disturbs, Langerhans Isles atrophy.
An excess of insulin is cause of hypoglicemia. Made these premises, let’s read Shelton words on diabetes.
Diabetes, in its initial stages, is a nervous condition caused by excessive food and drinks, intensive life, worries, weakenings and toxemia. It is classified in the group of various diseases which are nothing else than toxemia crisis.
Malady in general is simply damaged health, provoked by weakening. That is why we have got to consider the body as a whole, without focusing too much on a particular organ only.
A crisis is already in itself a recovery process made necessary and urgent when toxemia has reached a too high tolerance level.
Men are made like that. The sensuals go on satisfying their senses until they get lost, and the gluttons go on swallowing food until they finish in a hospital. It is the stubborness and the obstinacy of not changing on time that marks them.
Weakening is provoked by a way of life which uses excessively nerve energy. The consequence is a list of various chronic affections as diabetes, Bright disease, tubercolosis, cardiac troubles, artery maladies, and so forth.
Diabetes cannot be healed without first reforming and changing the entire life style.
A doctor who prescribes insulin to a patient, and tells him to conduct a normal life as usual, is signing a certificate of death for that man.
Insulin is a very powerful medicine which damages the body of the user, and should be eventually given with great caution, since an overdose can be fatal. It is a sort of crutch on which the body learns to lean.
Insulin does not help in any way the rehabilitation of pancreas, and rather compromises and atrophyzes pancreas secretion powers.
Instead of inducing and pushing the patient to live finally in a wise and proper way, insulin illudes him that he can go on eating anything, and that is really dangerous.
