Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. There are 2 types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2.
Type 1 diabetes
Results from the body’s failure to produce insulin, the hormone that ‘unlocks’ the cells of the body, allowing glucose to enter and fuel them.
Type 2 diabetes
Results from insulin resistance (a condition in which the body fails to properly use insulin), combined with relative insulin deficiency
Mr. Sang Whang, author of Reverse Aging shows how the accumulation of acid waste leads to complications including diabetes. He stated that Dr. Keijiro Kuwabara of Japan has been clinically treating diabetes quite successfully by use of alkaline water. He reports that a 49 year old insurance company employee was diagnosed by the company physician as having a case of insulin-independent diabetes mellitus. With only one month’s use of alkaline water, the sugar count came down to virtually an undetectable level, from 300mg/dl one month previously.
The pancreas produces one of the highest pH body fluids, pancreatic juice, with its pH value 8.8. A shortage of calcium ions in the body impairs the production and the release of the insulin hormone. This eventually leads to an acidic blood condition. Clogged blood vessels caused by excess protein buildup also impairs pancreatic function. Alkaline water, by supplying calcium in an ionized form and by helping prevent excess protein buildup, can help prevent and heal this condition.
As we age (by now we know this statement to mean “as we accumulate acidic waste products”), they say, that the efficiency of our pancreas decreases. Apparently we accumulate acidic waste products around the pancreas, men more so than women. Men initially begin to build up fatty acids around the waist.
