Study finds new links.

A great deal of media coverage has been dedicated to depression and its effect on the 20 million adults and children suffering with it in America alone. Recently, news reports are focused on the latest scientific discoveries, showing a confirmed link between having depression and developing diabetes.

Often, depression is mistakenly viewed as an ailment of the mind, emotions and psyche. But many experts have purported for years that depression can actually lead to the development of physical ailments as well. And now, these recent studies indicate that there is proof!

The Archives of Internal Medicine recently published the results of a study conducted over ten years, showing that people who exhibited symptoms of chronic depression – including anxiety, sleeplessness, weight gain, and more – were more likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes, also known as Adult Onset Diabetes.

Given that diabetes has long been linked to obesity, researchers were careful to account for the fact that depression may lead to a sedentary lifestyle and thus excessive weight gain or obesity. But even when those weight problems were accounted for in the interpretation of the study’s results, it was still evident that symptoms of depression accounted for a much higher risk in the development of diabetes.

Currently, there are an estimated 175 million people worldwide with diabetes and type 2 diabetes accounts for more than 95% of those cases. It has clearly become a growing problem. Diabetes can be a very dangerous disease, especially when developed later in life, but the good news is that there are effective methods of treatment available.

Avoiding sugar and regularly taking insulin have long been established methods of fighting the disease, but now more is being learned about preventative measures that can stop diabetes from taking root in the first place. Recent studies by the German Institute of Human Nutrition showed that by maintaining a high intake of fiber and magnesium, people can actually avoid developing this form of diabetes.

Fiber and magnesium are generally found in very high levels in whole grain foods, so eating a balanced diet including these important components can really make a difference. Prevention is key when it comes to adult onset diabetes, and there are plenty of helpful natural remedies and herbal treatments that can help ward off this disease.

Native Remedies carries products that can help diabetics to regulate their insulin levels and maintain pancreatic and liver health.

* Insulate Plus – Helps maintain healthy circulation, blood sugar levels, insulin production and bio-availability.
* High-Rite – Helps maintain healthy blood pressure, artery clarity and functioning and heart health.
* Aqua-Rite – Promotes water balance to maintain blood pressure, cardiovascular, liver and gall bladder health.
* Triple Complex Diabetonic – Helps maintain stable, normal sugar levels and acts as a tonic for the liver and pancreas.
* Vizu-All Plus – Promotes healthy eye functioning, and infection and disease resistance.

Weight gain and obesity can also be a big cause for future problems with Type 2 Diabetes, and interestingly enough it seems to go hand in hand with the effects of depression! Both depression and excessive weight are known to create excessive levels of a stress hormone known as cortisol in the human body. Cortisol is one of the main causes of malfunction in insulin production. By losing excessive weight and treating depression with natural remedies that actually help to stimulate healing, you can eliminate excessive cortisol, and greatly reduce your chances of developing diabetes.

For weight loss try:

* Slimmer’s Assist
* EcoSlim
* Detox Drops

For depression try:

* PureCalm
* MindSoothe
* MindSoothe Jr.
* Mood Tonic

Preventing diabetes effectively means finding the right combination between maintaining a healthy diet and exercise, and using natural remedies and antioxidants to eliminate additional risk factors.

When it was first introduced into the market 8 years ago, Avandia was seen as a breakthrough drug for its ability to control blood sugar levels. But now this new report raises serious concerns, and is working to heighten the already existing tension about the side effects of drugs used to treat serious conditions. Avandia is not the first prescription medication to have serious side effects, and it surely will not be the last.

In the wake of these reports, it seems many people are becoming more and more interested in helping their bodies fight disease naturally including herbal and homeopathic medicines.

Native Remedies carries several products that help to manage diabetes and its symptoms without any side effects at all.

* Insulate Plus – Helps maintain healthy circulation, blood sugar levels, insulin production and bio-availability.

“I have had major problems with my feet and always felt tingling and discomfort. Sometimes I couldn’t sleep because of it. Anytime I had a sore, it took forever to heal. Since using Insulate Plus this is a thing of the past and I sleep so soundly! I have used many of these products and have never been disappointed with their effectiveness as well as the fast and efficient service and friendly advice!”

“As I have been diabetic for many years now, I became concerned about the health of my kidneys. I know that diabetes can damage the kidneys and I have also always experienced urinary tract infections, which I know can become very serious if they spread to the kidneys. On your consultant’s advice I have been using your UTI-Clear and Kidney Dr. remedies. No more UTI’s (which is great) and, even better, I know that my kidneys will serve me well for many years to come!”
