In type 2 diabetes, the body produces its own insulin, but the cells are unable to respond to it properly. This form of diabetes is associated with obesity and in some cases pregnancy. It usually affects people aged 40 and over. It is often possible for those with Type 2 to avoid taking drugs and to regulate the condition with changes to their diet.
This approach in most cases is more effective and more pleasant. But always consult with your health practitioner.
Diabetes can cause narrowing of the small blood vessels throughout the body. The higher the blood sugar levels, the more the small blood vessels narrow. Resulting in the vessels carrying less blood and circulation is impaired. Poor circulation can lead to a number of complications connected to diabetes: eye, foot and kidney problems.
There are number of foods and herbs that can assist in controlling the blood sugar levels.
Goldenseal will bring elevated blood sugar levels plunging down and step up the production of insulin in the pancreas. For type 2 diabetics this is great news, but for hypoglycaemics it is something to watch very carefully. Goldenseal should help but not cure diabetes. A tincture extract can be taken approximately 15 drops, two or three times daily.
Scientific studies have shown that onions reduce blood sugar levels for longer periods than insulin, but more slowly. Ensure you have plenty in your diet. Onions are best eaten raw as cooking partially destroys its active compounds, which are contained in a highly volatile oil. Like onions,Garlic has a significant ability to control blood sugar levels. Garlic has a strong odour so take as a tincture or other supplement. Either way try to ensure your diet is rich in garlic.
Fenugreek contains six compounds that help regulate blood sugar levels. Modern research shows that fenugreek seeds not only lower blood glucose but reduce insulin levels, total cholesterol and triglycerides, while increasing HDL (the good cholesterol).
Olive Leaf acts as a hypotensive (lowers the blood sugar levels) and dilates the walls of blood vessels. Thereby increasing blood flow and circulation through the body and to vital organs. It has no side effects even when taken over a long period, so it is good for diabetics.
Cayenne Pepper is a wonderful herb to stimulate circulation. When your blood is circulating more efficiently you don't need as much of the chemicals that your body produces. A little will go a long way.
A retired plant scientist and a former Smithsonian botanist, James A. Duke and Edward S.Ayensu believe that Korean Ginsengis a remedy for a wide variety of disease or ills. In their two-volume reference work Medicinal Plants of China (1:123) they report that among other aliments ginseng is good for diabetes.
Cinnamon is great for lowering blood sugar, but it needs to be taken in larger doses than our palate generally enjoys so it's best to take in Supplement form.

because everybody does the fake closeness so well.

God went down to Eden to see how Adam was getting on.
"What do you think of life, Adam," said God.
"Well," said Adam. "It's quite hard work and a little boring and, well, just a little lonely too."
"Don't worry," declared God. "I've been working on a solution to all these problems. I'm going to create a Woman. She'll wash and cook for you and she'll have sex with you whenever you want. In fact, she'll do everything you can imagine."
"That sounds great," said Adam, "but how much will this Woman cost me?"
"I was thinking an arm and a leg," answered God.
"That sounds a bit steep. What can I get for a rib?"
One night, I told my four-year-old son the story of Noah and the ark. I gave him the full treatment, complete with animal sounds and detailed descriptions of the beasts arriving two by two. At the end, I asked him if he had any questions. He had just one: "Where were you hiding?"
The guard in Air Force basic training must check the ID of everyone who comes to the door. A trainee was standing guard when he heard a pounding on the door and the order "Let me in!" Through the window he saw the uniform of a lieutenant colonel and immediately opened up. He quickly realized his mistake.
"Airman! Why didn't you check for my authority to enter?"
Thinking fast, the airman replied, "Sir, you'd have gotten in anyway."
"What do you mean?"
"Uh...the hinges on the door...they're broken, sir."
"What? Show me!"
With a twinkle in his eye, the airman opened the door, let the officer step out and slammed the door shut.
"Airman! Open up immediately!"
"Sir, may I see your authority to enter?"
The airman was rewarded for outsmarting his commanding officer.
"Today, gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news," said our platoon sergeant during our morning lineup. "First, the good news. Private Tomkins will be setting the pace on our run." The platoon began to hoot and holler, since the overweight Tomkins was the slowest guy in the group.
"Now the bad news. Private Tomkins will be driving a truck."
The commander of the C-141 was in a hurry to fly out of the U.S. air base in Thule, Greenland. But everything was working against him. The truck to pump the sewage from the plane was late, and then the airman pumping out the tank was taking his time. The commander berated the lowly airman, threatening to have him punished. Turning to the officer, the airman said, "I have no stripes, it's 40 degrees below zero, I'm stationed in Thule, and I'm pumping sewage out of airplanes. Just how do you plan on punishing me?"
Heating water for pasta, I kept checking to see if it had begun to boil. My 13-year-old son shook his head. "Stop doing that, Mom. It's like that saying: 'A watched website never loads.'"
