Over 20 million people in the US have diabetes mellitus. It is the leading cause of kidney failure, blindness, and adult amputations. Overall, it costs the nation over $100 billion annually. Diabetes Mellitus results from a deficiency of insulin which is required to remove sugar from the blood. Type 1 is due to a destruction of beta cells within the pancreas by an autoimmune reaction. Type II results from chronic resistance to the action of insulin and the pancreas’s inability to produce enough insulin. There are many causes of diabetes, many of them lifestyle related and new research is showing that early respiratory infections and cell signaling play a key role.
“Recent observations have suggested that common infections during the first year of life have a protective effect. A study of 58 insulin-dependent children was matched with 172 non-diabetic children. Analysis of both groups showed that respiratory infections had the most marked protective effect later in life. infections during the first year may protect by modifying the lymphomatic response to subsequent immunological challenge. A link with decreasing early exposure to common infectious disease could account for the rise in the incidence of diabetes over the past 30 years” – Archives of Diseases in Childhood
Recent advances in molecular biology and neuro-endocrinology have shown that insulin deficiency may be due to a breakdown in the communication and signaling mechanisms associated with the central nervous system and metabolism. Healthcare is now changing its focus from treatment of metabolic disorders with drugs and chemicals to shifting towards procedures that will restore and maintain the normal communication and control the systems of the body.
Your spinal cord acts as a river between your brain and all the other vital organs and tissues in your body. When your spine is perfectly inline, the nervous system pathways are protected and function optimally. When certain stresses act on the spine, vertebrae can lose their proper position, shift out of place, and cause a subluxation. This subluxation will turn down the energy and signals sent out to the vital organs and tissues including the pancreas. Spinal nerve interference has been documented by leading scientific researchers to be a contributing factor of endocrine and metabolic disorders including diabetes. Removing these subluxations and nerve interference can improve your pancreatic function and reduce the risk of diabetes.
