Some of the information on this article is based on researches by Dr. Thomas Dayspring. You can check out his contributions to make our lives healthier on his YouTube videos.
Imagine being able to save lives, just by improving your lifestyle, not radically, not starving, only assuming a healthier way of living. This is only one of the many examples we can give you… Firefighters: They are usually buff, heavy or corpulent but with muscles, so they “seem fit”, but, are they really fit?
Case study: A 34-year old, male firefighter, let us call him Joe.
Joe goes to the doctor to take a physical, and his results show that he has a high BMI, high triglycerides, high blood pressure… but he’s not that heavy, he seems fit, he works out, his glucose level is more than fine, it’s actually lower than the low point, so he mustn’t be diabetic or prone to diabetes, right? The doctor tells him “you’re fine, just take a medicine to lower your triglycerides, lower the fat you eat, exercise a bit more and see you in a year, you’re not really at a critic or dangerous level, so don’ worry”. Well, doctors know better, so he must be right… right? WRONG!
It is sad when a doctor does not recognize the metabolic syndrome because a person “seems fit or isn’t that fat”, do not let appearances fool you. Why did that doctor say that? “Just take some drugs, walk a bit, do not eat fried chicken and that is it?!” BIG MISTAKE!!!
The key word here is CARBOHYDRATE RESTRICTIONS, yes, in all caps, so you know it is pivotal on what we are describing as one of the solutions.
When eating carbs, the glucose levels tend to rise. So by telling that patient to not eat, fried chicken for example, and just that… he may well eat a lot of bread, rice, pasta and stuff, and those are going to raise his otherwise “perfect” glucose levels. Faster even, if he eats lots of cake and cookies. In addition, by raising your glucose levels… BOOM, you are on high risk to be diabetic, or if you were close to, you probably are now.
One out of 5 people who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) under 26 are actually insulin resistant, so you could be skinny or “really fit” and still have all the issues a heavy person would have. Yes, that is science for you. Seems illogical but it is actually quite the opposite.
Imagine if we could help Joe to get rid of all his “alerts”, the high this and the risky that. Not only his life is going to be better, the city, which employs him, would save up to 1.2 MILLION $. Yes, that much. Moreover, it is just ONE person. Imagine helping more, how much money would the city save? A LOT!
Nevertheless, would we help him by telling him to take these and those drugs? No, not really. If a doctor considers necessary for Joe to take medicine, in a proper amount, for a proper time, then he must take it. However, not “take it just because”, there has to be a medical reason for taking it.
So, what would Joe need to do?
- Aerobic exercise
- Change his lifestyle, or rather, improve it. Lower the carbs, sugar and raise the protein.
So far, that is what Dr. Dayspring would advise on the go, but for further analysis, he would have to go to his office.
Add to that these advices from us:
- Do a Keto regime, which consists of protein-centered meals with vegetables and no carbs. Intertwine this with brief periods of fasting, in order to cleanse your body. This would actually “reset” your organs, your pancreas specifically, to produce the proper insulin levels and all of those functions it has.
Seems quite easy because it is easier than you think, you just need to make the effort. In addition, we are here to help you.
