i just do not understand why people are opposed to taking medicine.
this attitude has grown up like an epidemic .
it was there even in ancient days i think.it does not have any rational foundation;in general people who do not take medicine end up in drastic damages to their body.
in the contest of diabetes , you can revert diabetes or cure it with out medicine only in cases of beginners only.
not using medicine and controlling food ,exercise etc is called lifestyle medicine.it works not for all.try it, if it works.statistics tell that around 60 percent prediabetics can prevent reaching diabetes if they try lifestyle medicine. but this cannot be grouped together with diabetes or most other diseases.
for instance consider insulin:it is not a foreign thing , it is in our body.if a person is deficient in it , give it externally.it is the most natural thing to do.so medical treatment is natural only.
consider another case . beetroot contains a nitrate which can reduce hypertension.some people are ready to consume beet root any amount ,but will not take its extract.
ok agreed ,in extracted form it also damages, though ,it cures the disease in question.
but have these protagonists of non medicine gone for a comparison of damages ,in both cases.never. it is only their opinion.true scientific reason is to compare and advocate the better.
if you take an insulin secretagogue like gliburide [daonil] it certainly overloads your betacells .damages your pancreas to some degree.
1]do not take it, then what?
2]take no carbohydrates or take limited carbs,
but over load your liver, kidney and all the rest of the body by
consuming fat and protein in excess of a balanced diet.
ok ,who will survive longer?
consume medicine -whenever necessary, that is time tested logic.
