********DIABETES AND CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE **********
Premise: Antioxidants/exercise are essential for diabetics who have cardiovascular disease.
Atherosclerosis starts with the deposition of low-density lipoproteins (LDL or “bad cholesterol”) in blood vessel walls. However, LDL deposits by themselves do not cause atherosclerosis. LDL lipids have to be oxidatively damaged before cardiovascular disease (CVD) develops.
Given the role of oxidative damage in the development of CVD, antioxidant therapy seemed the obvious thing to try. It was therefore surprising that several large-scale clinical trials of patients with cardiovascular disease failed to show any benefit from antioxidant supplementation. There were indications, however, that a subset of patients in these trials might have derived a benefit from taking antioxidants. These patients had two things in common, namely diabetes and a particular form of the haptoglobin protein.
This world we live in where we eat polluted foods, drink polluted water, breathe polluted air and as stressed as we are free radicals and toxins are not theoretical. For Diabetics, these stressors are even more of a factor. The Liver/pancreas combination needed to keep disease at bay is already compromised. Many other stresses, are magnified in Diabetics as well because for instance lack of sleep [with which diabetics have difficulty], increases weight issues and low energy levels resultant contribute to lack of energy=less exercise, more weight, and so it goes. The over-worked Liver can't cope with its toxin-load and that is another addition to stress.
Cortisol stress hormone when released has been shown to cause weight gain just from being under stress, especially in the mid-section. Leptin-the protein hormone is the full button; tells your body you do not need more food, and is released more efficiently when we are rested. The Ghrelin petide hormone; the one that increases appetite, is released when you are not rested.
So what can we do? First exercise is great, add a few leglifts when you are just standing around, do the belly/butt tucks, take the stairs, go to the store on your bike on occasion. Just keep moving around, exercise doesn't have to be all at once or the same kinds of things.
Take Antioxidants, this will help flush the pollutants/free radicals/toxins away. Just a quick refresher, the antioxidants create a chemical bond with the free rads and pull them out in the waste. If you aren't eating an optimal diet then Glutathione-the master antioxidant is a great helper to counteract many diabetic complications.
Of course eating a great diet of lo-[bad]carbs, fresh raw veggies, and healthy free range meats is the very best way to heal...To replace all the low mineral foods we seem to have because of our depleted soils and poor farming practices~SELENIUMhelps immune system,fights infection and aids circulation
~MAGNESIUMhelps to relax you, aids stress and muscle relaxing

Also I really have to give you one little miracle I know to be true: Cinnamon, but it needs to be pure and at least a teaspoon per meal to do any good. It really lowers my blood glucose levels. OH AND SO DOES CELERY, EAT LOTS OF CELERY!

Do you?""Yep, got my double bed right in back here, see?!"The light turns and the man in the Volkswagen takes off.Well, the guy in the Rolls is not about to be one-upped, so he goes immediately to a customizing shop and orders them to put a double bed in back of his
car.About two weeks later, the job is finally done and he picks up his car and drives all over town looking for the Volkswagen.He finally finds it parked alongside the road so he pulls his Rolls up next to it.The windows on the Volkswagen are all fogged up and he feels alittle awkward about it, but he gets out of his newly modified Rolls and taps on the foggy window of the Volkswagen.The man in the Volkswagen finally opens the window a crack and peeks out.The guy in the Rolls says, "Hey.

A parish priest was being honored at a dinner on the 25th anniversary of his arrival in that parish. A leading local politician, who was a member of the congregation, was chosen to make the presentation and to give a little speech at the dinner, but he was delayed in traffic; so the priest decided to say his own few words as they waited.
" You will understand ," he said" the seal of the confessional can never be broken, however I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. I can only hint vaguely about this, but when I came here 25 years ago I thought I had been assigned to the most terrible place. The very first chap who entered my confessional told me how he had stolen a television set, and when stopped by the police had almost murdered the officer! Father, he told me he had embezzled money from his place of business and had an affair with the boss's wife. I was appalled! But as the days went on I learned that my people were not all like that, and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of understanding and loving people."
Just as the priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately began the presentation and give his talk.
"I'll never forget the first day our parish priest arrived at the parish." said the politician, "In fact, I had the honor of being the first one to go to him in confession."
