Description 

Diabetes is a dis-ease of the pancreas.  The pancreas is harmed or damaged. Sugar is built up in the body, which causes the glucose level to exceed above 90 glucose.  The pancreas secretes the hormone insulin, which stimulates the use of sugar.  Emotions and/or social stressors can overstimulate the pituitary and/or adrenals, which overtaxes the pancreas. This results in diabetes. 

Diabetes is usually caused by overeating and refined carbohydrates (white flour, white potatoes, white sugar, etc).  Eating excessive amounts of animal flesh can cause diabetes. Sugar can be a primary reason for sugar diabetes. 

Diabetes is an emotional illness that is caused by the inability to love and/or receive love.  Sugar represents love and dysfunctional love emotions are medicated by eating sugar. 

Table and refined salts can cause sugar cravings.  The blood sugar level falls just before menstruation and this can cause sugar cravings.  Sugar craving is stimulated by eating salts.  A craving for sex can cause a craving for sugar because of sugar’s association with love (i.e. chocolates as a gift).  Sexual frustration can cause sugar cravings. 

Processed sugar weakens the pancreas’ ability to use glycogen (sugar) for energy, so the body switches to fats (oils) for energy.  Thus, people believe drinking coke (sugar) and  eating french fries (oily salts) is a satisfying combination.  Unfortunately, salt is emotionally associated with frustration and anger. 

Stay away from processed sugars! (fructose, honey, maple syrup, sucrose)  Use agave syrup instead.  The treatment of Glucose Imbalance can strengthen the pancreas. Locate your pancreas and softly massage everyday. 

In 2018, 34.2 million Americans, or 10.5% of the population, had diabetes. (American Diabetes Association, 2020).
