Diabetes is a difficult and life-long disease which occurs when the body fails to produce enough insulin or can’t use it properly. There are 3 types of diabetes: type 1, when the immune system attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells; type 2, when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or it doesn’t react to it and gestational diabetes which can occur during pregnancy. The main symptoms of diabetes are frequent thirst and urination, infections and blurred vision.
Type 2 diabetes is more common, with about 90% of all diabetes patients in the UK suffering from it. A couple of years ago, one man was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure and was prescribed medications for the rest of his life. However, he decided to treat the condition naturally and managed to beat it with a diet consisting of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Here’s the recipe which helped him beat diabetes:
2 celery stalks
3 handfuls of spinach
Peel the apple and carrots, then remove the seeds and mix all the ingredients in a blender. Drink a glass of the juice every morning on an empty stomach to regulate your blood sugar levels and lower your blood pressure.
