Hey! – Rob here
Your Daily Health Fix today is about …
Sweet Pee (Urine) 💦
Once upon a time –
Before finger prick testers, continuous glucose monitors or urine strips, doctors that suspected a patient of diabetes would taste the patients pee. In fact the word for diabetes in various cultures and languages directly translates to mean ‘sweet pee’.
Diabetics struggle to, or lose the ability to control their blood glucose levels, and one sign that this is the case is that their urine is sweeter than it would usually be due to the higher concentration of sugars that the body cant remove from the blood.
The discovery of insulin –
Initially, the discovery of insulin (1921) and then the ability to produce it on mass (1923) were huge breakthroughs in science and technology, and undoubtedly helped save millions of lives – especially for type 1 diabetics.
In the past half century, with the onset of metabolic disease, the obesity pandemic and the rise of processed foods, commercial interests have capitalised on an unhealthy society, to the point where millions of people world wide are prescribed insulin every day, when their illness (insulin resistance) is as a result of having too much insulin, not too little.
What if we wound back the clock, and in recognition of all the doctors that tasted their patients urine, we were to rename type 2 diabetes ’Sugar & Carbohydrate Toxicity Disease’.
When we are told something is toxic, we automatically understand that it is a substance that should be avoided in large doses, or in many cases avoided at all costs.
Could a straight talking name help doctors and patients understand that they can control and reverse this modern day condition by simply removing the toxic substance (sugar) from their diet?
Naturally, the interests of big-pharma don’t want their target market to know that their product (Insulin) is perpetuating the patient’s illness rather than putting them on a path to recovery and improved health.
Help a friend:
Simply forward this email and send it to someone you know who is overweight or already classified as ‘pre-diabetic’. This simple understanding about what diabetes is and how to reverse it may help empower them to regain their birthright to optimal health.
. . . That’s it for this dose,
Until the next time – Stay Motivated!💪🏼
