Overly Acidic Diet Alcohol Consumption/Smoking
Stress Poor Nutrient/Vitamin Intake
Obesity Prescription and OTC Medications

Stress is a lurid offender to the body. Stress raises the body's acidity and kills off strains of good bacteria required to protect you. Stress causes the body to release inflammatory markers into the bloodstream and in turn can cause the blood sugar to run quite a bit higher. Stress can be a key factor in disease growth as it flourishes in these types of environments. Do not overlook the importance for researching natural and successful ways of dealing with stress! EFT Tapping, deep breathing, massage, accupuncture, exercise, and more are proven ways to reduce the danger of anxiety and stress in your life.

Obesity places extra stress on your body in a variety of ways, including your body’s ability to maintain proper blood glucose levels. In fact, being overweight can cause your body to become resistant to insulin. If you already have diabetes, this means you will need to take even more insulin to get sugar into your cells. And if you don’t have diabetes, the prolonged effects of the insulin resistance can eventually cause you to develop the disease.

Prescription and Over the Counter Medications are notorious for their acidic nature and multitude of side effects associated with their use. Some are worse than others. However, they can all contribute to nutrient and good bacteria depletion and profoundly compromise the very organs and functions you need operating at their best. They can provoke extra stress in the body thereby releasing inflammatory markers into the bloodstream, altering the blood sugar levels. Medications currently studied as possible inducers of diabetes include some antibiotics, antipsychotics, tranquilizers, labor and postpartum drugs, and acetaminohen(Tylenol®).

Low levels of vitamins, minerals, and healthy bacteria can be easily associated with inflammatory conditions. Close to 80% of the immune system resides in the digestive tract. Proper levels of friendly bacteria and nutrients are essential to your ability to expel toxins and fight disease.

Water consumption and the source for your drinking water are both very important. Unfortunately a good portion of our society is dehydrated and isn't even aware of it, which poses major health risks. In the presence of excess glucose, so much water is pulled from the body to process the glucose that the rest of the body system is often left without enough water to function properly. If the kidneys sense the body is becoming too dry, they begin to retain the fluid, rather than excreting it as urine. Unfortunately, this also forces the body to hold onto excess glucose and other toxins ordinarily excreted by the kidneys, and the damage begins. This is a vicious cycle of dehydration. One should consume a pure source of water, ideal for their body weight and activity level, steadily throughout the day. By the time you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated.
