Hi Guys. I want to get back to the topic of probiotics for diabetics. I've been hearing some wonderful anecdotes lately about diabetics who were struggling to cure their diabetes naturally until they added a healthy dose of probiotics to their diet.
If you are new to this, recommend you read my article entitled, "Probiotics For Diabetics - Yogurt Vs Kefir."
In general, if you are a newly diagnosed diabetic, chances are very high that your natural flora is totally out of balance. I highly recommend you go and buy a high quality organic kefir and drink/eat at least 1/2 cup daily for 2 or 3 weeks to get your system back on track. After this, I'd recommend a small kefir every 1-2 weeks with yogurt in between.
Here are some of the healthy "bugs" you want in your system:
However, keep in mind that kefir has even more variety and the the strains are more virulent and will help to not only maintain the flora in your guy but actually colonize your gut if you are lacking.
Now, here's another really important point about what to look for on the label when buying probiotics:
There is a BIG difference between:
pasteurized cultured milk/cream
cultured pasteurized milk/cream
You do NOT want milk to be pasteurized AFTER it is cultured as this will kill some or even all of the living probiotics!!
So, you want cultured pasteurized milk, NOT pasteurized cultured milk. Read your ingredient labels very carefully!
Also, don't buy ultra-pasteurized milk at all ever as this means the temperatures used are even higher and many of the nutrients will be denatured. Food manufacturers like ULTRApasturized because the shelf life is longer and they make more money. I've been noticing more and more ORGANIC dairy products that are ULTRApasturized. I avoid them all!
Probiotics should be part of your diet if you are trying to reverse your diabetes. However, there are other foods that you need to eliminate (not carbs) and others you need to add that are just as important, if not more important, than probiotics. The simplest way to know for sure you are taking all the necessary steps is to get the information here.
Together, we can cure all type 2 diabetes which didn't even exist before the 1920's!! Please help me spread the word.
