Diabetes has grown to “epidemic” proportions since the latest statistics state that 25.8 million Americans are diabetic or pre-diabetic. It is also the seventh leading cause of death in America. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the insulin- producing cells in the pancreas. Some of the causes that trigger this response may include exposure to a virus, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), heavy metals, vaccines or foods such as wheat, milk and soy. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes and is caused by insulin resistance; it is generally caused by genetics and unhealthy lifestyle habits. The most common complications from diabetes include high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, neuropathy, Alzheimer’s disease and in extreme cases, amputations. With the right diet and supplementation, type 2 diabetes is reversible; and essential oils can support the fight to reverse this terrible disease.
