  • Jan 31/2011  (7.3)  / Started my  BLOG and started putting my research and education and eating habits to the test.
To date since October 2004, I have had (6) A1C reading sunder 7.0. Memory tells me I made a concentrated effort during those times to eat right, exercise, and educate myself. Sometimes I think it is too easy just to take your meds, and get lazy. I know better now, and it is time to put my money where my mouth is and make a sincere effort to keep all future A1C reading under 7.0 and hopefully eventually closer to 6.0. I will do that by stepping up the exercise, paying attention to what I believe are the TWO best concepts I have read about, and that is:

Controlling the PH factor

Avoiding foods with Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils in them

Last, but not least paying attention to my own research and staying on top of developments, and continuing on an intelligent natural supplement program, which includes replacing hydrogenated oils with extra virgin coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, and flax seed oil. It also involves eating a variety of nuts, eating more greens (celery, broccoli, kale, green beans, Brussels sprouts, baby spinach, large raw salads, and two does of "All Dan Energy Greens every day). In addition I am going to start on ground Chia seeds. I spoke to someone in a health food store today whose father was a Type II diabetic and after eating Chia seeds every day for a couple of months was able to get off all his diabetic medications and have normal BG readings.

I will work on avoiding all carbonated drinks, and especially the colas because of the average 2.5 PH factor and the acid overload they cause. In their place I  will DRINK MORE WATER.

I will continue to eat mostly oatmeal for breakfast with 2 teaspoons of flax seed oil and a heaping teaspoon of cold milled ground flax seed and some light fruit mixed in.


** Jan 2009 highest A1C reading I believe is from the intense pain I went through for months before finally getting (2) nerve block shots the following month . Pain is a form of stress and stress can elevate one's blood glucose readings.
