Diabetes

Diabetes is one of the most common diseases in the world and in our country. According to the statistics provided by the International Diabetes Federation, diabetes can be found in one out of every 11 adults.

In the RTM system, the goal is not to directly suppress the symptoms of diabetes and to eliminate the symptoms but to reveal the factors that cause this disease specific to the individual and to detect and treat the source part of the disease. In the treatment, it is aimed to restore the infrastructure that causes the disease and to ensure the normal functioning of the system.

Let’s take a brief look at diabetes…

What is Diabetes?

There are different variants of Diabetes mellitus, which is called as Diabetes Mellitus in medicine. In general, it is the situation where the sugar in the blood, that is, the glucose level rises above normal, and as a result, sugar is encountered in the urine, which is expected to contain no sugar under normal conditions.

What Causes Diabetes?

It is known that genetic and environmental factors play a role in diabetes. Basically, it is divided into two types and the factors in the emergence of the disease are evaluated separately according to the type.

Type 1 Diabetes:

Hereditary factors play a role among its causes. In addition, malfunctions in the function of the body’s defense mechanism and viruses that damage the pancreas, whose function is to regulate blood sugar by producing the hormone insulin, are among the factors that cause the disease.

Type 2 Diabetes:

It is the more common type of the disease. The main causes can be counted as being overweight (obesity), inactivity, stress, diabetes in the parent, aging. In addition, it is possible to give birth to a high birth weight baby with the formation of gestational diabetes during pregnancy.

What are the Symptoms of Diabetes?

High appetite and feeling of fullness, dryness in the mouth, strange taste and constant desire to drink water and frequent urination are the three main symptoms of diabetes. In addition to these, other symptoms that can be seen in diabetes are as follows.

  • Weakness and sleepiness
  • Involuntary and rapid weight loss
  • Blurred vision
  • Tingling, burning and numbness in the feet
  • Wounds heal more difficult and slower than normal
  • Dryness and itching of the skin
  • Odor resembling acetone in the mouth and urine
  • What are the types of diabetes?

Type 1 Diabetes

It is a type of diabetes that is caused by the pancreas not producing insulin or producing it insufficiently and in which it is necessary to take insulin from the outside. It mostly occurs in childhood.

Type 2 Diabetes

It is a type of diabetes that occurs due to the insensitivity of the cells in the body to the hormone insulin, which is responsible for regulating blood sugar.

Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA)

It is an autoimmune type of diabetes that occurs in advancing ages. It occurs when the body harms itself due to dysfunction in the immune mechanism. As in type 1 diabetes, it becomes dependent on external insulin intake.

Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY)

MODY, which stands for Teenage Adult Diabetes, can occur in infants, children and young people under the age of 25. Insulin is usually not required to stabilize blood sugar or low doses are sufficient.

Gestational Diabetes

It is a type of diabetes that develops during pregnancy.

Pre-Diabetes (Hidden sugar)

The pre-diabetes period, which is popularly known as latent diabetes, is a period in which blood sugar tends to be slightly elevated and does not rise to the level to be diagnosed with diabetes. In this period, which can be experienced before the occurrence of type 2 diabetes, it is possible to prevent or slow down the occurrence of diabetes by applying a suitable nutrition program and the right treatment.

How Is Diabetes Diagnosed?

The basic tests used for the diagnosis of diabetes are the measurement of fasting blood sugar and the sugar challenge test, which is called the Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). Under normal conditions, fasting blood sugar is measured between 70-100 on average. If the fasting blood glucose measurement is above 126, diabetes can be diagnosed, and if it is between 100-126, the Oral Glucose Tolerance Test is performed to investigate the postprandial blood sugar.

If the glucose level in the blood measured 2 hours after starting the meal is above 200, it is an indicator of diabetes, and a value between 140-199 is an indicator of the latent sugar period called pre-diabetes. In addition, the HbA1C test, which reflects the blood sugar in the last 3 months, is higher than 7%, which indicates the diagnosis of diabetes.

How to Treat Diabetes in RTM System?

An Outlook on the Cause of Diabetes in the RTM System

Our body is in a constant balance against internal and external factors. With this balance, life continues by developing. The RTM System includes its own diagnostic and treatment protocols. Diseases in the RTM System; It is seen as a new balance or new adjustment points created in the body in order to continue life against internal and external negative conditions.

There is a source pattern called the Triad of Disease, which causes new settings to come into play in the body. This triple structure, which includes contamination in the body, system disorders and code changes in DNA (epigenetics), works as follows in diabetes;

Contamination in the Body: There is an increase in toxic load above normal in the body with the increase of cellular metabolic activities due to both the toxins we are exposed to from the environment and various factors. These toxic loads are transported from the cellular level to the detox organs (Liver, Kidney, Lung and Skin) by the circulatory system. In diabetes, both nutritional irregularities and disruptions occur in complex hormonal regulations that come into play to keep blood sugar levels within a certain range. Due to the toxic load in the body and the disruptions in the body’s metabolic activities, the blood sugar level cannot be kept within the specified ranges. This situation causes a high blood sugar rate and an increase in blood viscosity due to disruptions in excretion of other toxins. Over time, disruptions occur in the removal of toxins at the cellular level and in maintaining normal order. This situation causes the glucose and oxygen needed by the cells not to be adequately delivered to the relevant parts of the tissues and organs, and a continuous state of emergency begins in the body.

Deterioration in Systems: Personal characteristics such as genetic structure, hormonal processes and immune response determine the body’s response to internal and external adversities and its adaptation processes. Disruptions that will occur due to contamination in the body, effects on the circulatory system and deterioration in the detox systems are manifested by personal symptoms as in diabetes.

Due to the contamination of the body and the deterioration in the excretion processes of toxins, the viscosity of the blood increases in the parts of the body where the organs and tissues are affected. This will make it difficult for oxygen and nutrients to reach the problem areas and tissue starvation will occur. In order to overcome this situation and maintain vitality, the body will determine its own new solutions when a problem arises. This change will be encoded in the body at the information level and eventually a code change (Epigenetic Change) will occur in the DNA. This change in the information form will be reflected in the form of keeping the blood sugar level constantly high. In fact, these symptoms are a measure to prevent further damage to tissues and organs under toxic accumulation and to prevent damage by pulling the body into a passive form. The name of this new set point determined by the body is diabetes.

Treatment of Diabetes in the RTM System

The aim of the RTM System is not to directly suppress the symptoms of diabetes, but to eliminate the Triad of Disease, which is the source of the disease, as we mentioned above. In the RTM System, this is called the Treatment Triad.

Treatment Triad includes processes aimed at initiating the detox process to return to the normal state of balance in the body, eliminating the imbalance in the failing systems and reversing the epigenetic changes in DNA. This process is planned completely individually.

The main part of the treatment triad is RTM Phytotherapy. The phytotherapy protocol is determined by evaluating the detailed anamnesis, laboratory and imaging findings of the individual, and measurements specific to RTM clinics. With the RTM Phytotherapy protocol, the disease triad, which forms the source part, is withdrawn and treatment is applied.

It is aimed to normalize the epigenetic changes in DNA, which determine the new tuning constants, by informing the body with the seed parts of the plants. In order for the body to adapt to the normalization of this information, the treatment triad is activated by using the leafy parts of the plants, accelerating the detox activities in the body and regulating the systems. When the disease triad is withdrawn, it is aimed that the body will automatically return to the norm form.

In order to both support the body and accelerate the treatment process, in addition to RTM phytotherapeutics, nearly 25 traditional medicine methods such as Ozone,Cupping, Acupuncture, Magnetic field therapy are planned according to the needs of the patient.

Does lemon water lower blood sugar?

Despite its sour taste, it is known that the sugar contained in lemon is approximately equal to other fruits. For this reason, it is recommended not to consume lemon in the form of fruit alone in diabetes. On the other hand, due to its low glycemic index, soluble fiber and rich vitamin C, diabetics can consume water with lemon at certain times and in certain amounts in consultation with a specialist.

o Which nuts are eaten for diabetes?

The important point for a healthy diet in diabetes is to take the nutrients in sufficient quantities in a balanced way. Nuts are mostly rich in fat, but they can also be consumed in certain amounts in diabetes. Diabetes patients should consult a specialist for a personalized nutrition program.

For example, consuming 2 walnuts a day can protect people with diabetes, as well as everyone, from cardiovascular diseases. The high fiber in walnuts and almonds helps to reduce insulin resistance and has a positive effect on balancing blood sugar. Consuming walnuts and almonds in appropriate amounts helps to maintain insulin balance and lose weight in diabetes. However, since they also contain high fat, their calories are not low and therefore the amount should be paid attention to and should be consumed raw.
